If you are the proud parents of a baby girl, then you would want everyone who is dear to you to share your happiness. One of the best ways to do this is to use birth announcements. This will inform your friends and relatives that you have a new addition in your family. Most proclamations have the same information; your baby girl's name, details about her, her date of birth, etc. Some people also like to include the name of siblings in announcements and add special verses and poems as well.
If you know the gender of your unborn baby, then you can design the basic layout for your birth announcement beforehand. If not, you can choose to design a unisex card. Personalized announcements are all the rage today and also are a reflection of the thought and effort that you have put in. While sending them out, it is important to follow proper etiquette, keeping in mind things like the proper details to include, the time when it should be sent out and whom it should be sent out to.
While sending out a letter or a card to announce the birth of your baby girl may be the traditional way of doing it, if you take a little more effort and give a free rein to your creativity, you can come up with ideas that will make your idea stand out in the crowd. These are just design ideas and not a template that can be blindly copied off.
Using photos to decorate announcements may be a cliched way of doing things but it still remains interesting as it allows your relatives to get a glimpse of the baby. They don't have to be boring and dull, but can be made innovative with the help of collages that are tagged.
You could also send out baby booklets with your baby girl's photographs and information about her. In a technologically advanced world, many people are resorting to creating websites and web pages to announce the birth of their darling daughter. You could have videos uploaded with both parents talking about the daughter, photographs of the baby, stories, etc. All you need to do is mail the URL of the website or blog page to everyone.
Another great idea is to get customized candy or chocolate wrappers and boxes designed with your baby's photo and details on it. Use this wrappers and boxes to wrap chocolate bars and cookies and send them out to your relatives and friends as a proclamation of your daughter's birth.
These were just some of the ideas that you can use. There are many more such interesting ideas that you can come up with depending on your personal choice. Have a recurrent theme where colors and patterns are concerned.
While drafting your birth announcement, you can use the wordings given below or write something on similar lines.
