You’re not typical parents, and you don’t want to send any ordinary birth announcements. The way you welcome your little one to the world should be just as unique as they are, so say goodbye to baby blue and pastel pink cards and hello to a creative take on traditional birth announcements! You can put a modern twist on this time-honored tradition with any of these ideas:
Because the birth announcements will have a photo of your little bundle of joy, many of your friends and relatives will choose to display them on their refrigerators. Why not make this even easier for them by sending out magnet birth announcements? Include important details like the name and birth date of your new arrival. If you order the magnets from Pear Tree Greetings, you can even customize the color and design!
You know all those plastic Easter eggs you inexplicably saved? Now you can put them to good use! Place a small photo of your little one and a piece of paper with typical birth announcement information (like your child’s birth weight and length) inside. Use a permanent marker to write “Just Hatched” on the outside of each egg, then ship them to your loved ones!
Consider sending a tasty treat alongside traditional birth announcements. Whether you bake them yourself or hire a bakery to do so for you, custom cookies and chocolates are a great way to welcome your little one to the world. Decorate them with your new baby’s name and date of birth!
Computer-savvy moms and dads can get really creative with the way they present their little one to their friends and family members. For example, custom movie posters filled with puns and, of course, a prominent photo of your little one are a whimsical option that everyone will love! From “Bringing Up Baby” to “About a Boy,” there are tons of titles that lend themselves to this unique idea.
If you have so many wonderful photos of your newborn that you’re struggling to choose which one to include with the birth announcement, why not send a photo book? Pear Tree Greetings offers a customizable 10-page photo book that you can fill with your favorite snapshots of your little bundle of joy. This is an especially wonderful option if you want to include some photos of the entire family celebrating your new arrival!
