Two Little Fish: A Baby Shower for Twins!

Fish Baby Shower


A new baby joining the family is a great reason to have a party – but two babies?!  That’s cause for a huge celebration!

Our Mom-to-be is having the dream duo – a little boy and a little girl!  Since we have to go with a fairly gender neutral theme and the party is going to take place this summer, I though goldfish were the perfect theme!  This invitation from Tiny Prints is perfect – it creates a great color palette and has 2 little fish on it!

With a color palette of bold brights – orange, blue, yellow and green – and an accent of fish here and there – this party is sure to please our guest of honor.  Start by decorating your space with colorful lanterns – I love the square shape of these from  If you are looking to carry your goldfish theme through even further, check out these goldfish lanterns (they would be super cute for a child’s birthday party, too).

For our tables, choose “happy flowers” such as dalias, gerber daisies, or sunflowers to create your centerpieces.  Use a round, clear vase and fill with 3 goldfish – your guests will love it!  Set your table with blue, orange and white dishes.  I love the ones pictured above, but if you are looking to re-create this look with some disposable paper goods – check out Plum Party Supplies for the great products below (blue scallop placemats, orange ruffle edge plates, and orange and blue vase gems).  I absolutely love the goldfish glasses pictured above from Crate & Barrel – perfect for the baby shower – but also great to use all summer long!Fish Baby Shower Party Supplies

Serve a colorful meal of healthy food – try stuffed peppers and a cherry tomato fava bean salad.  Serving wine or a champagne punch is always fun, but remember to include a non-alcoholic drink for your guest of honor!  I love these orange Izze sparkling juice bottles.  They are available in all different flavors (and colors to match your party theme) at Whole Foods Market and Target.

Looking for a creative party favor?  I love these golfish in a bag soaps!  Perfect for our theme!
