And right along with themes comes the decor… from super cute food puns to double trouble to everything in between. We’ll talk about them all and help you find the most perfect twin baby shower theme, complete with adorable decorations, cake, games, and more.
Some Things to Keep in Mind About Twin Baby Showers
The first thing I want to say is that I know that there’s a certain etiquette about when you are supposed to have a baby shower. But, honestly? Throw etiquette out the window when planning your twins baby shower.
The later you get in your twin pregnancy, the more uncomfortable you are going to get. I don’t want to make you super scared or anything, but twin pregnancy is really hard.
My best advice is to have your twin baby shower EARLY!! My water broke with my twins when I was just under 30-weeks pregnant; well before the “correct” time to have a baby shower. I think the ideal time to have a baby shower for twins is between 26-28 weeks. Your bump will be adorable but you won’t be completely beyond uncomfortable yet!
Make sure the baby shower is within your budget. There’s no need to go overboard when truly the thought and effort put into a baby shower will be appreciated and the mama to be with be showered love and twin baby gifts.
You also want to be prepared for changes. There are risks with a twin pregnancy and you never know what can happen: from bedrest to premature delivery to having twins in the NICU (I experienced all of it!).
