“Two-By-Two”: Twin Baby Shower
Crystal was pregnant with her first baby – times two! Twins! She was planning to decorate the nursery in a Noah’s Ark “Two-By-Two” theme and wanted the shower to reflect the same theme. Keying off her theme, the nursery bedding and the Meri Meri “Animal Parade” party goods, I started incorporating touches of animals, arks and two of everything.
We started the twin and Noah’s Ark theme early by using animal designs on the invitation. The animals were from Meri Meri and the bird was illustrated from the nursery bedding.At the bottom of this double layered invitation, we used the quote “Twice the blessing. Twice the fun. Two little blessings instead of one.”
I created baby blocks using the same animals found throughout the party. I made them to say “babies” for the twins. I also placed fresh flowers and used the “Daring Book for Boys” as a touch of color and to welcome the twin boys. The onsies being used for the activity were also used as an added element of decor.
We went with light, luncheon fare with fresh vegetables, homemade pita with falafel, strawberry and ham wraps, and fresh fruit. I designed and made these custom cupcakes (A Cupcake Co.) with fondant animals on top.
Crystal decided not to go with traditional party games, so we opted to have people create onsies for the babies to come. With twins, a new mom cannot have enough onsies! We also set out a large vase of Mother’s Animal Cookies and had people guess how many animals were in the vase.
