Airplane Birth Announcements

In an age of electronic everything, I'm a sucker for snail mail.  Especially if the occasion is a happy one.  So of course I had do so something to announce Oscar's arrival in an old school way.  Sticking with the same inspiration for his nursery, we went with a retro travel inspired look.



Just like with all my mailings, I like to include a little treat (Agatha's birth announcements came with candy). This time it was a little balsa wood flyer. I admit I had never seen these before but they are fun to fly and race.  Not sure who enjoys them more - the boys or their fathers!



So off they went on their little adventure along with a tag and photo, introducing our newest traveler.

    1. I considered printing on them directly but decided to have a rubber stamp made instead. Hope that helps.

  7. So sweet - I always love your snail mail ideas! I might be prying way too much here but I always wonder approximately how many of these and your holiday cards you send out to family and friends? I imagine it adds up in time and money - but I'm sure the joy of sending outweighs the price!

    1. I am pretty selective about who gets our mailings. I tend to limit it to about 50 people max. And that list is always changing b/c I'm super picky about who gets them! :)
