A Baby Shower (for Twin Girls!)

This weekend my sister, Lisa, and I threw a baby shower for our sister, Karen. Karen is expecting twin girls in a few months and we couldn’t be more excited for her. We had so much fun planning a shower to celebrate these twin baby girls!

Lisa is amazingly creative and artistic, so she is responsible for many of the creative details from the shower, including adorable mason jars and labels for the beverages. Our guests really enjoyed drinking their pink lemonade out of the cute mason jars.

The pink lemonade was a hit!

Lisa also made these personalized water bottle favors.

I, of course, was most excited to plan the menu for the shower (especially dessert :) ). The shower was held at lunchtime, and we decided to keep the main course simple with salads and sandwiches. Here is our menu:

Baby Shower Menu

Beverages:

  • Pink Lemonade
  • White Wine
  • Ice Water

Appetizers:

  • Italian Sausage Skewers
  • Tomato & Basil Bruschetta

Main Course:

  • Croissant Sandwiches
  • Green Salad with Toasted Walnuts, Berries, and Feta
  • Pesto Pasta Salad
  • Fruit Salad

Dessert:

  • Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling and Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
  • Decaf Coffee

The water bottle favors and cupcakes on pretty stands decorated the dessert table.

The guests were happily surprised to find a raspberry filling in these delicious vanilla bean cupcakes. I’m excited to share this recipe soon!

My mom was also invaluable to our shower preparations. In addition to many behind the scenes details, she helped by making two of the salads and decorating the lunch tables. For the table centerpieces she arranged baby toys in cute polka dot boxes. She also used fresh roses, candles, and polka dot napkins to decorate the tables. Everything was so adorable and pretty!

We had two games for the shower guests to play: a necklace game and baby gift bingo. For the necklace game, guests had to be sure not to say the words, “baby,” “babies,” or “twins,” or else their necklace would be taken by another guest! Quite a challenge at a baby shower!

Congratulations, Karen and Eric! We cannot wait to meet your baby girls!
