I have someone wanting to announce their pregnancy and due date to their families when they all get together at a beach place. She's thinking something baby/beach themed??????? Help!!!!!!! The only thing I can think to suggest to her is sailboats with "baby on the way" written on them. I don't really like that idea though...any others?

Do you mean in terms of making cookies or cake to let them know? If so, I think any baby themed cookies will do. Or even get bibs and wrap them as gifts to everyone. Say maybe something with Grandma or Grandpa written on them and something unique to everyone's role.

how about a cake made to look like a photo album/baby book? you could scatter beach toys (sand pail & shovel, etc) as well as baby items. The idea is that eventually their will be baby photos to fill the "book". We announced our 1st pregnancy to our parents by presenting them each with a baby brag book.

You could do a simple beach themed cake as you would normally do, and have baby footprints in the sand with the due date written in the sand Just a thought

Not beachy but how about an oven or just the front of the oven door with a window and buns cooking. Could say "done to perfection (due date)" or something like that. icon_smile.gif
Oops, sorry, I just noticed this was for cookies.

Perhaps a simple beach scene/themed sheetcake with the caption:

"Today's Forecast: Sunny with a chance of Baby 'Showers'--We're Pregnant!"

Whoops: Ditto here-- didn't realize this was a 'cookies' post. Oops!

How about a boat with a sign that says "Anchors aweigh, Baby on the way!" or "Baby on board"? You could do a beach scene with the message written in the 'sand'. How about a mom and pop fish with a baby fish?

If you're talking about cookies...

How about a momma duck with baby ducks. Momma fish with babies, Momma crab with babies, etc. These would be cute bagged; the teeny babies RI'd on.

A stork with a sailor hat and shirt -- you wouldn't have any problems making it cute. icon_smile.gif

Nautical flags spelling out baby.

A sailboat called the S.S. Preggers!

Beach themed cookies in pastel colors.

Boat shoes / docksiders in pink and blue.

Baby onesie sailors suit.

Sailboat with a cloth diaper (with pins) for a sail. Baby rattle rudder!

I think it needs to be subtle, without any too-obvious written statements⦠I read somewhere about someone bringing the news to her hubby by serving him dinner made of baby peas, baby carrots, baby eggplant, baby corn â you get the ideaâ¦
You have AWESOME âUnder the Seaâ cookies in your pics, maybe start off with them, and draw a little one on eachâ¦

The babybook that micnmax had I thought was really cute. Could do it with cookies aswell just might be a bit of work. In the opening where the photo would go, you could put the due date? Let us know what you do, good luck!

Might be more difficult, but could you do something like a female top with a beach ball peeking out from beneath? As if a woman put a beach ball under her shirt to pretend pregnancy... I love the baby sailor onsie idea icon_smile.gif

Thanks to you all for the great ideas. The cake ideas are great too but I only do cookies. I went over some of the ideas with her and she'll be getting back with me this afternoon so I'll let you all know what we came up with. Thanks again!!!!!!
