Love celebrating your child’s special events? Any occasion is a good one for creating personalized announcement cards to memorialize their big moments.
A shower, birth, baptism or birthday are a few of the many moments that should be commemorated! Creating an announcement card is a great way to create a long-lasting memory of each precious event. Whether you opt for a simple or folded card, or even a magnetic card that you can stick on your fridge, here are a few ideas that will help you create unique announcement cards for any occasion.
Are you organizing a baby shower for a family member or a friend? Use photos of the future parents or siblings to enhance your announcement card. Add the date, time and place along with a phone number guests can call to confirm their presence. Don’t forget to make an extra copy for the future mom to keep in her pregnancy journal or in her child’s baby photobook.
Tip: Leave some space on the invite so the guests can predict the gender and weight of the baby. Once the child is born they’ll be able to see who guessed right!
It’s always a magical moment when a child is born. And no matter if they’re the first, second or third in the family, we want all of them to be welcomed the same way. Creating a birth announcement card allows you to present your little one to friends and family. Print a card or a magnet which states their first name, last name, date and hour of birth along with weight, height… In short, everything that already makes them so special!
Tip: Include their middle names: your friends and family might not know them!
Baptism, first communion
Your child might celebrate these special moments and if they do, create a unique announcement card that guests can keep as a wonderful souvenir. Add the child’s name and date along with the time and place of the ceremony.
Tip: Add the names of the godparents.
No matter how old we are, birthdays are always important. A picture printed on a card or fridge magnet with the name and birth date of the birthday boy or girl allows everyone to see how much the child has grown throughout the years.
Tip: If you’re organizing a birthday party for your child, why not ask her or him to help you create the cards? Pick a theme, create a set up and take a picture. They’ll love distributing the invites they helped make to friends.
