Two Peas in a Pod
This is a very popular theme that can work for however many multiples are expected. How many peas can fit in a pod? This works for higher order multiples too! (Check out this cute quad pod cake!)
Decorations: Fill candy dishes with Kiwi flavor Jelly Belly for a cute and yummy “pea” table piece. You can also you use peas as a vase filler as seen here at Hostess Jo. (A slender vase with flowers is inside the wide vase filled with peas.)
Food: Pea salad of course!
Drink: I would not suggest you make a pea drink..lol Just serve something yummy!
Favor: Sweet Pea scented hand sanitizer or lotions from Bath and Body Works would be a crowd pleaser!
A Perfect “Pear” Twins Baby Shower
This theme’s play on words is adorable for a twins baby shower.
There is a lot you can do with pears themselves. A simple chic decoration would to place pears on square white plates as table centerpiece. Tie ribbons on their long stems to dress them up!
Food: Pears are a versatile food that can be paired with (pun intended) cheese and crackers, tossed in dips and salads, or be made into pies!
Drink: Sparkling Pear from IKEA. I love the chic cans!
Favor: I love these pear tea infusers for a unique gift. You can also find loads of pear candles and other favors.

This theme is the most original that I found and I am just dying to use it! I found this genius idea at Oh Baby! Custom Shower Decor Blog. This theme could work if you are expecting triplets, adding twins to your family of 3 or if you are expecting quints! Or if quads are expected, you can do a “4 of a kind” play on this theme!
Decorations: Lots of playing cards!! String them with fishing line to make banners, wrap them around rolled napkins, and so much more! Make sure to have decks on the table for your guests to play! Go to the blog to find more ideas on decorating, food and favors! It’s too awesome to put into words, you just have to see it! If you do this for your shower PLEASE share the photos! I would love to see this done for a multiples baby shower!
Cakes: I ran across this 4 of a kind cake set for a mother expecting quads. Something like this would be great with this theme!

Monkey See, Monkey Do!
Any parent of twins will tell you how true this statement is! What one twin sees the other do, he has to do it too! This is a cute twins baby shower spin on the monkey theme that is popular today.
Decorations: Monkeys and bananas of course! For table centerpieces use monkey grass in cute pots!
Food: Bananas, banana chips, banana nuts, banana bread, monkey bread, and to top it off have a banana split bar!!
Drink: Coffee to go with monkey bread, and a strawberry drink would be nicely paired with banana-flavored foods.
Favors: Package banana candies to thank the guests for “swinging” by!
