Having a baby is such an exciting time for new parents, and sending out birth announcements are the traditional way to bear the good news. Babies bring such joy to a couples life and choosing the right birth announcement isnt always an easy task.
Many couples who are expecting a baby choose to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl in advance. My husband and I chose not to find out our babys sex in advance. We did not know whether to order baby boy announcements or baby girl announcements.
I did not want to wait until after we had the baby to buy the cards because I wasnt sure what to expect after giving birth. I didnt want to risk taking too long to send the joyful news to our friends and family. Fortunately, there are blank birth announcements available to those of us who like surprises.
The blank birth announcements are every bit as attractive as the boy and girl announcements and they are the same quality as well. These cards can be ordered online and there are many available to consider. The blank birth announcements do not have the traditional blue or pink details, but you can opt to purchase the cards in other colors that are appropriate for a baby.
I chose white for the cards, but I did have my eye on a blank birth announcement that was decorated with many different pastel colors. This colorful card was supposed to be appropriate for boys and girls, but I decided to opt for the white because the pastel colors seemed too feminine. I was sure that I was having a baby boy. I was wrong.
I almost bought cards to introduce our little bundle of joy that were a beautiful pale blue. I did fall in love with those blue cards but Im glad that I held back. The cards had a pair of adorable, bare baby feet and I just couldnt resist the cute scene. I was glad to find out that the same design was available with a white background on blank birth announcements.
I was able to have my favorite design that captured the spirit of the joyful occasion while still keeping the mystery of whether we were having a boy or a girl. The benefit of having the blank birth announcements is that you have a little time to get to know the baby before writing the news on the cards.
I loved being able to tell friends and family that our daughter has a firm grip and pink skin. If I had written the announcements while I was still carrying her, I wouldnt have included those valuable details. I will choose blank birth announcements for our next child so we can be ready for just about anything.
