The Best of All Things Come in Pairs


Preparing for the arrival of a new baby is a super exciting time. But that excitement doubles (out of control) when preparing for the arrival of twins. Themes provide a better focus while planning a baby shower (whether it be for yourself or a loved one) and allow you to concentrate on the sweeter details. A theme can tie everything together for a beautifully articulated event.

Two peas in a pod is a very popular theme that’s also flexible for however many multiples are expected.

Decorations

When selecting decor for your two peas in a pod twin baby shower, allow for several shades of green to take over, with accent colors depending on the twins’ gender (pale pink, lavender, baby blue, or pale yellow).

Food

So even though those green balls of goodness add flavor to dishes like pasta salads, you may not want to include peas in every dish you serve at the baby shower. Here are a few ideas:

Key Lime Pie Shooters

French Macarons with Kiwi Filling

Pea Pod Cake Pops and Sugar Cookies

Green Candied Apples

Mini Quiches

A Very Berry Platter

Favors

My favorite part of any party are the favors mainly because I love sweet details and I love seeing the creativity that goes behind favors (especially for themed parties). Here are a few ideas:

Two Peas in a Pod Salt and Pepper Shakers- These honestly add some zip to the saying “two peas in a pod”! The charming gift presentation also brings a cheerful touch to the joyous occasion.

Baby Feet Cookie Cutters- Granted this isn’t explicitly “pea” related, it still falls in to the category of adorable favors. Besides, who doesn’t want to take home cookie cutters to add to their collection?

Peas in a Pod Candles- The candle set has two baby design candles, with a single strand of hair on each forming the wick, peering out of a snuggly green pea pod. Too cute.
