The birth of a child is an important event in a couple’s life. It marks the couple’s entry into parenthood which is a joyful event. Celebrating baby arrival is a fun way to get family and friends together. Everyone attending baby arrival celebrations brings gifts to baby and mother and passes on their good wishes for the birth. Here are five ways to celebrate your baby arrival this winter.
Hold a Small Baby Arrival Celebration at Home
People hold a baby shower event before the baby’s arrival, and there are no reasons why you cannot hold a baby arrival celebration at home. The celebration can be simple with a baby shower yard sign and a few decorations at the venue to light up the atmosphere. Unlike a baby shower, you can get the yard sign personalized with your baby name, so everyone knows how to address your bundle of joy.
You can call a small crowd for the celebration and have refreshments for the occasion. This event is quite convenient for the newborn and the mother as you can control the visiting time. You can welcome all guests within set hours and wrap the event within one hour. Guests will get an opportunity to peek at the baby and perhaps save some pictures of your baby with the baby shower yard sign in the background as a memory.
A baby arrival event is a good option that ensures your friends and loved ones get time to see the baby, and they will not drop at odd hours to see the baby and congratulate you for parenthood.
Planting a Tree
Planting a tree is a great idea to celebrate your baby’s arrival in winter. The tree represents life and growth, so it is a perfect symbol to celebrate new life. Whether you are a parent or grandparent, planting a tree on the arrival of a new baby in your family is a perfect way to commemorate the birth of a new family member. This will give you something to look forward to for many years. Imagine taking photos of your child and the plant together as they grow together.
Hire a Professional to Click Newborn Portraits
Having photos of your baby in their first days of life is a great way to celebrate the baby’s arrival. Professional photographers can click pictures of your baby when it is two weeks old or younger. You can create a series of portraits that can serve as a permanent record of the adorable newborn stage.
Donate a Charity
Donating to children’s charity is a great way to celebrate the arrival of your baby. It is a beautiful way to celebrate the joy of birth and spread the joy to less fortunate people. There are several children charities in the US to whom you can donate.
Keepsake Jewelry and Baby Castings
Keepsake jewelry is personalized items with your baby’s name and date of birth engraved on them. These jewelry items can also birth gemstones or the footprint of your baby. Alternatively, you can get your baby’s hand and feet cast and turn it into a bracelet or frame it. Like the namesake jewelry, the baby castings also become a reminder of your baby as a newborn.
To sum up, these are some ways to celebrate your new baby’s arrival this winter.
