A MoM recently asked:

What did everyone do for a theme for their twins’ 1st birthday? I have boy/girl twins so we are trying to do something gender neutral, but also fun and cute. Their birthday is in January.

Here’s what our Twiniversity fans had to say:

– We did a Flintstones them for our twins’ 1st birthday. We got them Pebbles and Bam-Bam costumes. I made a fruity pebbles birthday cake and had Pebbles and Bam-Bam cake toppers. My husband and I, along with my 4 year old, wore Flintstone shirts. It was cute!  ∼ AL

– We did “Our little cupcakes are turning one” pink and blue for our twins’ 1st birthday . I ordered little vintage oven boxes to put take home cupcakes in. Bunting banners, striped straws∼ WLB

– Survivor (as in: we survived). ∼ SD

– Pancakes and PJs. ∼ RA

– As long as there are a pair of smash cakes, they’ll be happy. Get a cheap shower curtain to cover the floor first, then toss it after for fast cleanup! ∼ JH

– For our twins’ 1st birthday we did their nursery theme – Paddington Bear∼ VEA

– We did a jungle theme/monkeys for our twins’ 1st birthday.  We have identical twin girls but they had a lots of jungle themed items in their nursery and I always called them my monkeys. ∼ LWB
