Looking for a few fun New Year’s Eve pregnancy announcement ideas? Keep reading because we’ve rounded up 10 of the most adorable and exciting ways for you to share your big news as the ball drops!
Although you can find adorable ways to announce your pregnancy any time of the year, there’s just something extra exciting about sharing your news during the holiday season. New Year’s Eve is the perfect night to let everyone in on your big secret because it’s a time for new beginnings. It also gives everyone something amazing to look forward to in the upcoming year! Besides, if you usually participate in the liquid libations, everyone will figure it out pretty quickly when you’re drinking mocktails instead of the real thing. That alone is a fun and coy way to share your news. Want something a little more grand? Read on for my top ten favorite New Year’s Eve pregnancy announcement ideas!
New Year’s Eve Pregnancy Announcement Ideas
1. New Year’s “Expecting” Announcement
This is an easy pregnancy announcement idea to post on your social media pages. Post this status on New Year’s Eve- “We’re ‘expecting’ 2018 to be a great year! Happy New Year!” Then, see how long it takes everyone to figure out your message! You could also combine this with one of the other ideas on our list and use it as a sort of teaser. If you go that route, leave the quotation marks off of “expecting.”
2. Swapping Bottles Onesie
You can announce your pregnancy with this cute onesie a couple different ways. You can hang it on a baby hanger and snap a picture. You can add it to a picture frame and hang it on the wall. You can also send it to your parents as a gift. The onesie reads- “This New Year, We’re Swapping Bottles.” This onesie is available from Etsy. Other variations (and display ideas) include this one that says “Poppin’ bottles of a different kind in 2018.” I love how they used an ultrasound picture in the announcement!
3. Chalkboard Signs
Chalkboard signs are a great way to share your news with everyone at the party! They’re super easy to make, either by using a real chalkboard or by creating a digital image and printing it out. Whichever way you go, gold and white chalk make the message really pop. Here are a few ideas to put on your chalkboard:
- “Forget about that ball dropping, how about something jaw dropping?”
- “Our New Year’s Resolution: be the best parents ever!”
- We’re “expecting” 2018 to be the best year ever.
If you’re not feeling crafty, you can buy a ton of different variations on Etsy. We made this one in PicMonkey. Here’s a tip: you can snag ours (right click and save), then just use a black rectangle overlay to cover the baby name and due date info at the bottom. Then just add your own using your favorite font!
4. New Year’s Announcement Video
Videos make awesome pregnancy announcement ideas and New Year’s Eve makes the perfect time to announce your pregnancy. Videos allow you to incorporate different things like images and text. You can see an example of this idea here.
5. Popping Bottles Champagne Labels
Champagne and New Year’s Eve go hand in hand, but not when you’re pregnant! This makes the perfect opportunity for a surprise pregnancy announcement. These labels read- “This Year We’ll Be Popping Bottles of a Different Kind!” You can get these labels from Etsy.
6. Happy New Year Announcement Cards
These cards are a great way to wish family and friends a Happy New Year and to announce your pregnancy at the same time. The card reads- “We’re Expecting a Very Happy New Year!” These announcement cards are at Zazzle.
