6. Decorate a Pumpkin
A great way to utilize a fall theme with the announcement of your baby’s arrival coming soon is by incorporating pumpkins. There are so many different ways you can utilize this infamous fall decoration. Whether you have it “hidden in plain sight” amongst your other pumpkin decor when you have friends and family over or you simply bring it as a gift, you just can’t go wrong.
Here are some different ways you can use pumpkins to spread the good news…
Maybe you could decorate your front porch or stoop with three pumpkins? More specifically, you could decorate the front of your house or your mantle with 2 large pumpkins and 1 small pumpkin!
As you have guests come over, you could see if they pick up on the subtle hint! And, for your friends and family who can’t visit, you could simply send them a picture and see if they can guess! Too fun!
– Carved “mommy” pumpkin
As it gets closer to Halloween, you and your spouse could carve a big pumpkin to have a big “heart” hole front and center. Then, you could place a mini pumpkin inside!
Again, you can see if people will notice this fun pregnancy announcement, or use it as a picture to friends, family, or social media and see all of the fun reactions!
– Painted pumpkin
Lastly, painted pumpkins are all the rage these days! You could simply paint and decorate your pumpkin in a way that shows your news! You could paint your pumpkin to say “little pumpkin coming soon” or some other fun phrase to let others know the exciting news!
7. Find the Pumpkin
This is another pumpkin-themed fall pregnancy announcement idea with a twist! Instead of simply decorating a pumpkin, you could involve your family and friends in a fun game!
This would be so much fun with little ones, but, honestly, it’d be just as fun with adults! Similar to an Easter egg hunt, you could hide little pumpkins all around the house and/or yard. Let them know that there is one “special pumpkin” and if you find it, you get a prize! Then, when the winner finds it, you could make the prize your announcement with a onesie or your ultrasound picture!
Seriously, this game will be something that your friends and family will never forget!
8. Ultrasound in the Pumpkin
With our last pumpkin idea, you could simply hide your ultrasound picture in a carved pumpkin! Ask a family member (such as your parents or in-laws) to open it up, and watch the shock and excitement fill their faces!
9. “Fall in Love” Baby Booties
These fall colored booties are the epitome of sweetness! Not only do we adore the booties themselves, but we also love the “Get ready to fall in love” announcement that they will read when the box is opened!
10. Fall-Themed Card
If you’re looking for something classic, you can never go wrong with a card announcing that you are expecting! Maybe it’s a particular person’s birthday and you give them this card instead? Or maybe you mail this to a friend or family member? Whichever way you do it, this “adding a pumpkin to our patch” card is sure to make for an exciting announcement!
