- Did you / your partner make a few phone calls to your parents, best friends and then let the grapevine do the rest?
- Did you Tweet or text?
- Did you place an announcement in The Times, El Mundo, The New York Post, Le Monde, De Telegraaf et al?
- Did you buy a pack of birth announcement cards from the local card shop and eventually get round to sending them out?
- Did you spend hours designing a card yourself and chosing all the right words etc?
Our window displays were kind of tame compared to some - a banner on our front door for Luca, made with the same leaf lettering as the cards, and for Ruby, each letter of her name printed in red on an A4 sheet, clipped with little pink and white pegs to a ribbon in the front window.
When I was born, my parents sent out cards, embossed with gold lettering to all the family and friends. A bit fancy eh?
What about you? How did you tell the world that your precious little baby had now arrived?
