My husband and I would like to announce our pregnancy to the whole family on Thanksgiving (next week)... any creative suggestions on how to announce it?

We have thought of buying a little something and having everyone open it, and we have also thought of trying to take a picture with the family... then before he takes the picture tell everyone to say "we're pregnant!"

I definitely want to create a WOW factor and to surprise everyone/ catch them off guard...
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • I made up an old scroll looking paper with it stating we were expecting in the old type of wording! Everyone was in tears! Like Here ey Here ey we are all gathered here today to announce the upcoming birth of your grandbaby! :)

  • I LOVE the "we're pregnant" picture idea.

    With luck, you just might capture the moment the news registers on a few of those faces. Priceless! :-D

  • I think ther picture idea is great! It would be so funny to see everyone's expressions on camera.

  • I agree, the picture moment sounds amazing. You would catch so many different reactions at once! And a nucki I think is a nook, a pacifier.

  • I love the picture idea,
    a family friend told her family at a big dinner by hiding cards underneath everyones plates and right before they started dinner asking everyone to open up their cards.
    The cards said congratulations you're going to be a ___ (aunt, grandma, uncle, nephew)
    everyone was in tears, no one expected that.

  • Grab two plates for yourself and fill them both up and set them at your place. Eat off both, and when someone gives you a weird look or comment, smile and say, "I AM eating for two now."
