Mint Condition

It would be foolish of me to have another baby just to create a beautiful birth announcement, but I’m pretty sure a lot of babies have been born for even more foolish reasons. After browsing through Minted’s selections of announcements, I have half a brain to ask my hubby if his procedure can be reversed, then the other half of my brain slaps me back to reality and says, “You can’t handle the two you have!”

Minted’s announcements are so gorgeous they make me want to get knocked up. That’s some powerful ish, because I wouldn’t do it again if you paid me. Well, maybe if you paid me enough and were my very good gay friend who doesn’t have a uterus of his own. Then I might be swayed.

Luckily, with the help of Dr. Weinstein of Santa Barbara, a third baby is not in my future. That said, I still have friends that are not done growing their families and might need some help choosing this very important way to introduce their precious bundle to the world. So here are a few of my faves from Minted (if I could do it all over again):

Makes me so happy!

Fun & Festive

I love this design so much. The shape of the card and the cheeriness of the colors won me over right away. There are other color options that are equally as gorgeous.


Sweet & Girly

Sweet & Girly

This one is all sugar and spice and makes me want to throw a tea party with little sandwiches and French macaroons.


For boys or girls

Unisex & Modern

A cool and unique approach for little girls or boys displaying all the important stats in a fresh way.


Simple & Bold

Simple & Bold

If I had a boy, I would’ve gone with something like this last one. But I had 2 girls so it was all flowers and pink for me.

Really, you can’t go wrong. They’re all so beautiful and well-designed. It’s a hard decision to make because when you put your baby’s perfect face on any of them, they instantly become the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen. Plus, they have all these cool new features like gold foil-pressed announcements (since I’m obsessed with anything gold these days) and magnet options like all those nifty “save-the-dates” that couples send out for their weddings now.

Seriously what will they think of next?

I shouldn’t be jealous, but I totally am. Not jealous enough to do anything drastic though like have another baby. I’ll send out birth announcements for a new dog before I go and do something that crazy!

  1. Don’t worry you can design mine, throw the baby shower, and I’ll even let you babysit the little newborn when my pregnancy happens. That should cure your craving 😉




  2. I had pretty announcements made up when both my boys were born and was too tired and scattered to ever mail them out. Both times. So now I have like 50 birth announcements for each kid. In a box. In my attic 😛


    • Oh no! I totally understand though because it’s the last thing you have time for, especially with the second one! Maybe you could turn them into something else someday…like coasters for family members ; ) {kidding} I’m sure Pinterest has a million ways to repurpose them. Now if only we had the time!
      Thanks for reading : )
