Congrats on your little bun in the oven! Not everyone can use holidays to let everyone know they are adding a little one to the family. This part is so fun because you can do anything and with Halloween coming up, you have even more fun options.
There are so many different ways to use pumpkins in your Halloween pregnancy announcements! Get one pumpkin for each member of your family (if you have kids, get them the smaller gourds). Label the smallest one with your expected date. Getting a little more creative, you can carve out the front of the mom pumpkin, into a heart or circle, and the place the baby pumpkin inside. You can say something like “Adding a new pumpkin to our patch! April 2016”
Say it with a skeleton
Have you seen those super cute shirts that depict a rib cage and then a little baby hangin’ out? You are in luck! With it being Halloween time, you can also find those skeletal shirts for the rest of your family. Take a bunch of different family shots and choose the best one.
I don’t mean in a ball gown and tux (although you could, but I don’t think that will get your message across). You can be dressed as if you were having an X-ray done on your belly, and show a little one in there, and your hubby can be dressed as a doc. Or you can create the play on words ‘Bun in the Oven’ and you can be dressed as an oven with a bun in it, and your man can he the chef. You can find the oven costume at Costume Express or someplace.
If gore is your thing, you can do what I did and make it look like the baby is coming out of your belly! I had to get permission from my daughter first, but I used one of her old dolls and cut off the arms and legs and fastened them to an old white shirt. I used fake blood around the limbs where they were coming out of the shirt.
Say it with words
If photos are not your thing, but you still want to announce your pregnancy, just say it with words. It being Halloween allows you to use the word ‘mummy’ in a fun way! You can say something like ‘This Halloween, I am a Mummy-to-be!’ or ‘We are excited to say, our own little pumpkin is on the way!’ Include your expected due date on whatever you choose to say.
Hopefully, this list of Halloween pregnancy announcements ideas will get the wheels spinning and you can create a one-of-a-kind announcement for your one-of-a-kind baby. If you are looking for a little more inspiration, check out this article from Today!
