If you’ve recently found out that you’re pregnant with twins, you are probably experiencing a roller coaster of emotions. This is one of the most exciting times in your life, and you undoubtedly want to share the news with every one you know. If, like most women, you’re waiting to tell everyone until you’ve made it past your first or second month, you’ve got time to plan some great baby announcements. Here are a few fabulous ways to use onesies to tell those closest to you that you’re expecting.
If the timing of your announcement coincides with a major holiday, look for ways to incorporate onesies into holiday festivities. For example, if Easter is near, prepare Easter baskets for loved ones that contain two plastic eggs nestled among the goodies. Include a onesie emblazoned with the logo of your choice in each egg. You can have “Baby 1” and “Baby 2,” “Everything is Better in Pairs,” or even “Double Trouble” printed on your onesies. Your loved ones are sure to get your message as soon as they read what you’ve had printed.
If you’re the crafty type, starting a scrapbook for each set of grandparents is a great way to announce a pregnancy. Purchase a pair of cute onesies, set them on a beautiful piece of fabric or plain colored poster board, and snap a picture. Print out your picture and create the first page in each of the scrapbooks. Not only is this a great way to announce your pregnancy, but the scrapbooks will be a great way for the grandparents to organize the hundreds of photos that they will take of your new twins.
You can use onesies to announce your pregnancy via snail mail in a number of ways. If you have relatives that live in another state, or even another country, buy a pair of onesies, wrap them in pink, blue and yellow tissue paper and mail them to your relatives. Alternatively, you can take a photo of the onesies and create pregnancy announcements to mail to everyone that you know. If you know the sex of your twins, use onesies in traditional colors to clue your friends and family in.
Everyone loves a great dinner party, and there’s no better opportunity to announce your pregnancy to a large number of people at once. Whether you want to host a formal dinner or a casual barbecue is up to you, but your dessert course is a great time to make your announcement. To pull your surprise off, buy a pair of onesies and place them on a covered cake dish. Put the cover on the dish and make a show out of bringing dessert to the table. Set your cake dish on the table and once you’ve got everyone’s attention, lift the cover off of your dish to reveal the onesies. It may take some people a minute or two to catch on, but that’s part of the fun.
There are dozens of great ways to announce your pregnancy to the world, but these are some of the most unique, fun ways to make your announcement. By using onesies to tell your friends and family that you’re expecting, you’ll ensure that they remember the exact moment they learned about your twins for the rest of their lives.
