Double Baby Shower
I have two daughters and am throwing one shower.
Is this proper? Where can I find appropriate baby shower items such as invitations, party themes.
Thank you for your etiquette question. Yes, it is ok to throw a double baby shower for your daughters. But there are a few things to think about before you put one together. I recently answered a question on the pros and cons of a double shower. It might be of interest to you.
As far as decorations, invitations and theme ideas, a double baby shower is a lot like a normal baby shower, except there are 2 guests of honor. You can use any theme you would like to go with it. A popular theme choice is the Noah's Ark theme, which is also used a lot for twin baby showers. We also have a twin baby shower theme that goes along the lines of double the pleasure, double the fun, which can be twisted to go with a double baby shower.
For the invitations, you will not find ready-made invitations for this type of baby shower, but you can either print your own or order some online. With an online purchase, just make sure they allow you to customize your wording, since you will need more lines to let your guests know it is for both daughters.
My two favorite places to get invitations are tiny prints and eBay.
The wording should be pre-filled in for you on the cards, so the spot where you would put one name you would change that to two names so your guests know what to expect. Also, if you know the gender of the babies, that would also be important to put on the invitations.
Best Of Luck planning the baby shower!
