Freshly Minted

When Riley was born I had grand plans of ordering adorable custom birth announcements. Then, while we were in the hospital they offered to take professional newborn photos in our room, and you had the option to order a package of photos that included birth announcements. It’s pretty genius – get the parents when they’re sappy and sleep deprived ;) I was happy with the announcements, but they weren’t really my “style.”

I was recently introduced to Minted, and you guys – I’m like, gimmie all the prints!!

Warning – these could make you catch baby fever ;)

I’m a sucker for anything chalkboard. Add a baby and I’m sold!

How cute is this one with the graphics? I love the likes/dislikes.

I love this verse. You can do photos on the back, and have this to frame for the nursery wall.

I mean. Look at that baby! The green graphics are so cute too!

I had two wonderful and thoughtful Baby Showers when I was pregnant with Riley. Since that was only 2 years ago I don’t think we need to have another full blown ordeal. I like the idea of a baby “sprinkle” to keep it small and really just celebrate the occasion of having a new little one, not so much to be “showered” with gifts. We do have a few things we’ll need, but nothing like the last time.

How cute is this sprinkle invitation?!
Sweet, huh?

And. How cute is the idea of a Sip & See!! I’ve heard of these for families that Adopt – sort of a meet & greet for the baby, but I’ve never thought of doing one as a shower for myself. Imagine – you’ve delivered your little bundle, everyone wants to cuddle a newborn and since you’re not preggers anymore…you might even have a few sips of something fancy!!

rel=”nofollow”> This might be my favorite – I have so many friends that are also expecting, and we’re due within days of each other. How fun would it be to have a little party to meet all the new babies!

I may have a hard time choosing from all the cute designs. But my favorite part about the Minted site is how you can filter products while you search. You can narrow you search by theme, style or even color. So helpful. Plus, below that the site keeps track of invitations you’ve recently viewed. I can’t remember how many times I’ve been on a site browsing options, only to struggle going back to see a previous one I liked.

Minted contacted me, offering product credit in exchange for a review of their site. I’ll be sure to share what I select :)
