Oh, Baby! Ideas to Welcome a New Arrival

blog image
William and Kate, more formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, announced today that they are expecting their second child. 

The announcement of a new baby on the way is one of life's most exciting times! Family and friends will want to celebrate such happy news with cards, gifts, flowers and perhaps by hosting a baby shower. Thousands of gifts for Prince George were presented before and after his birth, including a rocking horse and polo mallet from the Obamas, a surfboard from Australia, apple trees, and a fattened bull and calf from the Samburu peopel of Kenya.

While each birth may not be a Royal event, every baby is an equal miracle, and each new parent deserves to be treated with a little extra love and TLC. Here are some ideas for anyone who wants to welcome a new baby.

The big announcement
You may wish to send flowers to congratulate the parent(s) on their joyous news. Keeping flower selections bright and cheerful is always an excellent way to go. And what to write on the card? Here are some great suggestions: 

"Congratulations on Your Happy News! You’ll have your arms around your little one before you know it!"
"Congratulations on your pregnancy. We are looking forward to meeting the newest member of the family."
"All your life you were learning how to be a good human being. Pregnancy will teach you how to be a good mother. Congratulations."
"I am happy for your pregnancy but I am happier in knowing that a baby will be born in the arms of such loving parents like you."
"My heartiest wishes to you, mom-to-be. Have a happy and healthy pregnancy. Enjoy this special moment of your life!"
"New life, new responsibility, and many new discoveries are coming. Congratulations on your pregnancy."
"The craziest roller coaster ride in the world is not at Disneyland or Universal Studios, it is the nine months of pregnancy. Good luck and enjoy the twists and turns of your pregnancy."
"The doctor may cut off the umbilical cord that ties you with your baby, but no one can cut off the cord of love built over the next nine months which will tie you with your child for a lifetime. Congratulations on being pregnant."

The baby shower 
When it comes to baby showers, the more, the better! New babies need a lot of gear and new parents will really appreciate some help with the provisions. There are many tips for how to host, and for how to personalize the event. You can find some great baby shower game ideas at babycenter.com.
When it comes to decor, an especially cute and memorable idea is to use rain boots to hold a pretty bouquet of your choice to prepare for the "shower" of gifts! (Hint: make sure the boots are nice looking and relatively new.)

TLC for Mom & Dad
A spa gift basket may be just the thing to provide a thoughtful treat to a new parent. Try the Supreme Spa Basket to provide some much appreciated pampering. Busy parents or a mom-to-be with a fussy appetite will also really appreciate a fruit, cheese, or other food-related gift basket.

Some suggestions for the card message:
"A new baby is like the beginning of all things - wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities."
"Adoption is when a child grew in its mommy's heart instead of her tummy. Congratulations on your new arrival!"
"Congratulations! May your baby be blessed, his/her road forward a blessed adventure!"
"We welcome your dear new child to this world with love."
"Babies are special, babies are fun, congratulations on your new little one!"
"Another miracle in this world. Welcome!"
"I don't know who is more blessed. Either you are for having a new little baby, or your baby is for having you as parents. Congratulations to everyone!"
"We are wishing you a lifetime of happiness with your new little baby."
"We pray for health and happiness to you and your little one.
"I'm wishing you continued blessings as your family grows."
"There’s no greater gift to a loving couple wanting to be parents than a child! I’m glad you have been given that gift. Congratulations!"

And remember, just the fact that you cared enough to send flowers, a gift basket, and a card, will go a long way toward giving new parents a much needed boost of confidence and support. They will treasure your kindness for years to come!
