Color, Color and More Color
Even though blue and white are the most popular choices for baby stationery, parents are choosing vibrant colors like apple green, tangerine orange and lemon yellow either as the primary color or a bright accent. Chocolate brown is also popular and a true example of a contemporary color. For those who still choose pink or blue, a fun way to do something fresh is to use two different shades of that color. See below for trendy color combinations:
- Pink and Chocolate Brown
- Pink and Apple Green
- Pink and Bright Green
- Tangerine Orange and Magenta
- Pink and Pale Yellow
- Lavender and Pale Yellow
- Baby Blue and Apple Green
- Baby Blue and Pale Yellow
- Navy Blue and Hunter Green
- Navy Blue and Red
- Baby Blue and Lime Green
Traditional Patterns with a Twist
The hottest designs right now feature traditional patterns with a twist. Gingham, toile, plaid, and dots are still very popular, but artists are finding ways to recreate this look by mixing two different patterns on one card, adding an unexpected splash of color to the design, or featuring the design on an embellishment (e.g., ribbons or die-cuts), rather than the paper itself. The result is a perfect mix of the old and new.
Adding Dimension with Ribbons and Die-Cuts
Parents with a flair for style are opting to use quality hand-tied ribbons as a way to add a special touch to the birth announcement and make it stand out from the ordinary. Beautiful Midori satin ribbons or textured grosgrain ribbons are favorites. They are typically tied above or below the announcement. Another hot trend among stationery designers is the use of whimsical die-cuts in the shape of butterflies, balloons, flowers, ducks and more.
Wording - Less is More
More and more parents are choosing to use very simple, classic language to convey the birth of their child. Fluffy, cutesy language is being passed up for a short, direct message (e.g., "we welcome with love" or "we joyfully announce") that has a more understated, classic feel. Despite a shorter message, it is still very popular to include the names of your baby's siblings or any pets in the family.
