Children’s birthday parties are always special. You get to celebrate another year of your little one growing into a special and beautiful person – and you get to do it with fun cake, party themes and favors. When you are the parent of twins or triplets, you get to double or triple that fun!

Planning a birthday party for twins and triplets offers so many possibilities. However, the food is often the main event, with most guests congregating around the food table and the selections helping to set the tone and the theme. Here are a few fun ideas for twin- and triplet-themed party foods for a twin or triplet birthday party:

Peas in a Pod

You probably already get the joke about your little ones. Go ahead and make it an inside joke for your party! Serve actual peas in the pod or a side dish of peas for the main course with a little illustrated card showing the joke. You could have one or two baby heads with little pea caps for hats. If you like to bake, you could also create cupcakes or an actual cake with little peas in pods in frosting.

“Pear”ed Food

If you have twins, you can play off the theme with pears – as in a “great pair.” You can serve pears themselves, or you can include pears in salad, dips or desserts. Of course, as always, cakes and cupcakes are always a great canvas for any design you want to include, such as pears.

For families with triplets, you can highlight your larger bunch with “bunched” food, such as carrots or grapes. Again, you can serve these on their own or include them in recipes that you serve, such as a carrot soup or a grape dip. Make sure you highlight the theme in illustrated signage so that guests can be in on the joke.

Noah’s Ark

Twins always inspire comparisons to Noah’s ark. You can use this theme for your party food for a twin birthday by including pairs of everything you make. You can also use this theme to offer foods that you think the animals on board would have eaten, such as bananas for the monkeys, circus peanuts for the elephants, and apples for the horses.

“Full House” Theme

Having multiples can be a handful. A poker theme is a great idea for a multiples birthday theme. You can play up your “full house” with foods that reflect the four suits in the deck of cards, including any type of red or black foods like strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, licorice, red and black candies, beets, and chocolate. You can even choose foods that match up the shape, such as broccoli for clubs, strawberries for hearts, asparagus for spades, or crackers and cheeses for diamonds. Have fun and be creative!

The food you choose for your party can really set the tone and enhance the theme. Try out some of these ideas if you are planning a birthday party for your twins or triplets.
