You have a 1 in 250 chance of a twin pregnancy, so why not make your baby shower unique as well? Planning a baby shower for your twins can be fun yet a bit overwhelming as well.
There are so many things you have to plan – what themes to choose, the design of the cakes, and how you will be sending out the invites. If you are clueless about how to plan the baby shower, do not worry as we have curated a list of fun, unique, and cute ideas that will make your baby shower a memorable experience for all!
Before we begin, there are some factors that should be put into consideration so that you have an idea about how you want your baby shower to turn out.
Selecting The Date
A baby shower is usually hosted four to six weeks before the due date. However, since twins are more likely to be born early, it might be best to host the party way before your due date.
How Many Guests Are You Expecting?
Do you want your baby shower to be an intimate event where you invite only your closest girlfriends and family members or do you want to turn this into a big event? It all depends on the venue and on your budget.
If you are following a theme, should you implement a dress code for your guests as well? It might look a bit odd if the baby shower is full of pastels and light tones and your guests arrive in bright, eye-catching colors.
Do you want to send out invitations virtually or do you want it to be in person? Whichever you choose, make sure to include all relevant information such as the date, timing, address, and phone number in the invite.
Snacks And Beverages
The best option is to keep things simple. For snacks, you can include both sweet and savory appetizers. You can arrange a dessert table and put cookies, tarts, cinnamon rolls, candies, cupcakes, muffins, and lots more. For savory snacks, you can include popcorn, mini waffles, salads, deviled eggs, and rolls among others.
The trick is to keep lots of finger foods that are not messy and can be served at room temperature. If you want the mom-to-be to be happy with the food selection, you should definitely include some, if not all, of her favorite snacks. As for beverages, you can include non-alcoholic drinks such as fresh juices, pink lemonade, or mocktails or you can include a few bottles of wines, champagne, and beer for your guests.
If you want to make your baby shower a fun event, you can include a few games. You can host active games such as a diaper-change relay race or a bottle toss game using feeding bottles in your backyard. Other fun games include the due date guessing game or baby shower bingo that you and your guests can easily play in your living room. However, games are completely optional. You do not have to organize anything that you are not completely on board with.
Now, let us look at some unique and fun baby shower ideas. We have grouped them into three categories that are Baby Shower Ideas For Twin Girls, Baby Shower Ideas For Twin Boys, and Baby Shower Ideas For Twin Girls And Boys.

You could also decorate the dining table with pink tulle and flowers.
Instead of doing the regular square-shaped invitations, you can make it a bit extra by using the cutout of a ballerina such as these ones.

Baby Shower Ideas For Twin Boys
If you’re more into traditional baby shower themes for twin boys, then you should expect a lot of blues, whites, and dark hues. We have included traditional themes that focus on sports and cars but we have also added a few gender-neutral themes that are equally as fun and cute.
1. Sports-Themed Baby Shower
A great baby shower idea for twin boys is to follow a sports theme. You can do football, basketball, baseball, or whatever sports you like. This theme is quite easy to do. All you need to do is put up some balloons, hang a few cutouts of the baseball or football on the wall, and arrange a sports-themed dessert table.
For food, you might want to serve the guests hot dogs, hamburgers, and french fries. You could also host a barbeque in your backyard. For dessert, you can put sugar cookies shaped like basketballs, baseballs, and footballs. You can also place protein bars that are popular among athletes on the table.
You can make the invitation card look like a ticket for the game or you could take inspiration from these:
2. Jungle Boogie Baby Shower
A safari-themed baby shower for your twin boys is perhaps one of the cutest baby shower themes. You can place large cutouts of zoo animals like giraffes, lions, tigers, and zebras at the entrance, in the dining area, and next to the photo booth. You can also place stuffed animals and animal-shaped balloons for decoration.
The color palette for this theme includes lots of greens and browns so make sure to match your desserts and cakes with the colors. If you are not doing animal-themed cakes and cookies, you can keep it simple by using different shades of green, yellow, and brown icing to decorate the cupcakes and cookies.
If you want to send out baby shower invites, here are a few designs you can choose from. You can keep it classy by using a limited color palette or you can make it super cute by adding doodles of the zoo animals on the card.

A great way to spice up this baby shower theme is to add one or two big cars in front of the main booth.

You can also do sugar cookies like these ones for your dessert table!
