cigar name announcements

cigar baby announcementsFor both Vivi and Brigette, we kept the name a secret until their arrival – it’s fun to make it a surprise!  I think the handing out of cigars is a sweet tradition upon baby’s arrival, and adding a little tag with the baby’s name and meaning is a great way to give a little keepsake to visitors and family.  It’s also a good way to let them know how to spell the name, and what exactly you plan to call baby.  Here are the announcements we handed out for Vivi’s birth, and above are Brigette’s.  This time around, I used bubble gum cigars, to save on cost.  I think they are equally as cute, though!

  1. Would really love to know the meaning and reasons you picked Vivien Charles as well. Couldn’t zoom in to read hers. Congrats!

    Did you make the announcements yourself? If you got them somewhere would you mind sharing where? They are so cute.

    I love this idea. Our baby girl is due in 4 weeks, and we were already thinking about giving out bubble gum cigars. I’ll be putting together a little card like this for her. Thanks!

    Long time reader, first time commenter. I’m not even exaggerating when I say this is literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. One day when I have kids (what?! not weird that I follow your blog for decorating ideas for my own bachelorette pad!), I’m definitely doing this!

    Love this idea and design!!

  9. This is such a great idea! Love this announcement. Did you do it yourself or have someone do it for you? I’d be interested in purchasing for my upcoming announcement! Thanks for sharing :) And congrats, such a beautiful name.

    Just wondering (sorry if it’s posted elsewhere and I missed it) if you pronounce her name like Bridget or like the French version, like “Bri-jeet”. Either way, it’s a beautiful name!
