Twin Baby Shower

A few days ago, I shared some of the preparations I was making for a baby shower.  On Friday (yes, April 1st), my friend texted me (at 4 pm) with wonderful news.  After two long months, the doctor was releasing the twin babies from the hospital at noon tomorrow.  But wait... the shower was scheduled for 11:00 am tomorrow!!  So we moved the shower up to 10 a.m. and rushed through it. The get together  was very exciting because the new mom was literally driving from the shower to the hospital to bring her precious new children home!

I purchased a couple of downloads to frame as decorations for the party and send home for the nursery:


THANK HEAVEN  for little BOYS can be found HERE.


We made a wish and two came true can be found HERE.

I have no affiliation with any of these Etsy shops.  I'm just sharing links to the items I purchased.



We played a twin version of The Price is Right which can be found HERE.



Here are all the items displayed for the game.  I purchased two blue baby blankets to use as tablecloths for the activities and of course send home with the new mom.  Guests guessed the prices and wrote them on the game sheet.  The winner took home two bottles of blue nail polish.
The new mom had to put the price tags where she thought the belonged.

Here's the Late Night Diapers activity.


Guests wrote messages to the new parent on disposable diapers.  I couldn't find a printable list of suggestions, so I made one.  You can print it HERE.  I printed it on blue card stock and included it in the basket with the diapers.
I placed thank you note envelopes for guests to address at the same table. 

I also had a cute Twins Baby Babble word scramble ready, but ended up giving it out as "homework" since we were in a hurry. Just follow the link to print it free.





Two fun items that I gave the new mom were bibs monogrammed with the twins' names


and this cute board book.

Have a wonderful week!
Heartfully,
