There’s nothing more precious to you than your little one, and no moment more special than when they enter the world. We don’t blame you for wanting to announce it and commemorate the moment – and baby announcements plaques are made just for that.
Whether you want to commemorate the arrival of your own newborn or gift a birth plaque to family or friends, we have different designs here at My Little Wardrobe to cherish the greatest of all welcoming home parties.
Can I Customise the Design of My Baby Announcement Plaque?
Yes! The idea behind baby announcement plaques is that they are unique to each newborn. At My Little Wardrobe, our range of birth plaques can be personalised with the baby's name, birth date, and other details like weight and height.
At My Little Wardrobe, we offer wooden, acrylic, and metal plaques, each that typically includes a default design such as sunflowers, rainbows, or landscapes – but you can often customise the design by adding your own text and extra decorative elements. For example, our personalised Wildflower Baby Announcement disc is the perfect way to celebrate your baby’s arrival, and you can customise the piece with any name or saying you like. Easily write in your bub’s details on any of our customisable birth plaques with a fine permanent marker or pen, and voila – you have yourself a treasurable keepsake!
Do You Offer Gift Wrapping or Gift Messaging Options For Baby Announcement Plaques?
Yes, we offer gift-wrapping options for baby announcement plaques at My Little Wardrobe. We understand the importance of making your gift special and personalised, so we provide the option to have your baby announcement plaque wrapped upon request at no extra cost.
How Do I Hang the Baby Announcement Plaque On My Wall?
Once you’ve ordered your birth plaque and customised it to your liking, now, of course, you want to put it up! Here are some steps to follow when hanging your plaque, so that it will display beautifully in your home:
1. Choose the Right Spot
First, decide where you want to hang your baby announcement plaque. You may want to consider a spot in the nursery, or another room where you spend a lot of time with your baby.
2. Gather Your Supplies
You will need some supplies to properly hang your baby announcement plaque, including a hammer, nails or screws, a level, and a measuring tape.
3. Mark the Spot
Use a pencil to mark the spot on the wall where you want to hang the plaque. Use a level to make sure it is straight and even.
4. Measure the Distance
Measure the distance between the hooks or holes on the back of the plaque to determine where to place your nails or screws.
5. Hammer in the Nails or Screws
Use a hammer to gently hammer in the nails or screws where you marked the spots on the wall. Make sure the nails or screws are secure and stable.
6. Hang the Plaque
Carefully hang the baby announcement plaque on the nails or screws, making sure it is level and straight.
7. Step Back and Check
Once hung, take a step back and check to see if the plaque is hanging straight and is at the right height.
How Do I Look After My Baby Announcement Plaque?
Taking care of your baby announcement plaque will help it last so that it can be a memento that’s passed down through generations. Here are some tips for looking after your plaque:
Keep it Clean
Use a soft cloth to gently clean the plaque and remove any dust or dirt that may accumulate over time – but avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
Avoid Exposure to Direct Sunlight
Direct sunlight can cause the colours and materials on the plaque to fade over time. Try to avoid hanging your plaque in direct sunlight or in areas that are exposed to a lot of light.
Avoid Exposure to Moisture
Moisture can cause damage to the materials on the plaque, particularly if it’s made of wood or paper. Avoid hanging your plaque in areas of high humidity, such as bathrooms.
Handle With Care
When moving or cleaning your plaque, handle it with care to avoid accidental damage or scratches!
Store it Properly
If you need to store your plaque for an extended period of time, make sure to store it in a dry, cool place where it won’t be exposed to moisture or direct sunlight.
