Fall is officially here, and that means Halloween isn't too far behind. Halloween is a super fun holiday to me because it seems like so many people go all out to celebrate. Whether it's designing the perfect costume, dreaming up the most spook-tacular pregnancy announcement, or both, it just seems like there's a lot of creativity and cuteness in the air this time of year. There are so many fun Halloween-themed pregnancy announcement ideas to get inspired by if you've got special news to share this season, whether you're going for sentimental, hilarious, scary, or something in between.
Pumpkins are pretty much everywhere this time of year, so it probably won't come as a surprise that you'll see a lot of them being incorporated into pregnancy announcements. There are a ton of different ways to do that, however, and no two pumpkin pics are exactly alike. And if gourds aren't your thing, of course there are plenty of non-pumpkin options to unveil your big news, including some amazing costumes that clue people in and give them a good laugh, too.
Here are 11 awesome pregnancy announcements from Halloween loving moms- and dads-to-be that might just inspire your own big reveal.
1. A New Baby Ghoul
How cute is this little family of ghosts from @Dazzlefrazzled? All it takes is some white paper bags and colorful construction paper to copy the look.
2. A Special Treat
Baby news makes the sweetest Halloween treat, just ask @CarleyAFisher who posted this cute announcement.
3. A Gorgeous Cornucopia
Crafty mom @tierneyriggsphotography said it with style, announcing her baby news on Instagram in a gorgeous cornucopia wreath. Bonus: you can reuse it as fall decor.
4. A Spooky Surprise
Die-hard Halloween fan @feelingraceful opted for full-on scary costumes in her Twitter baby announcement. Something tells me elaborate family Halloween costumes are in this family's future.
Singer Jessica Simpson went with a pun in her Halloween baby announcement, announcing she was "going to be a mummy" while dressed as one. Wrap some crepe paper or toilet paper around yourself and you can easily mimic this mummy.
6. A Very Revealing X-Ray
Those skeleton shirts are an easy costume for pregnant mamas, but mom-to-be @_kittiekaboom_ gave hers a hilarious and unique twist by turning it into a X-ray. Dad's matching scrubs make the couple's announcement extra fun.
7. Not A Trick
As if the above couple's hilarious X-ray picture weren't enough to get the message across, they also came up with this pumpkin-shaped sonogram to share their baby news.
8. The Cutest Pumpkin Sibling
This family's pumpkin patch is about to get a little more crowded, and @mrscrissyroberts found an adorable way to make her firstborn part of the announcement. Seriously, can you even handle the cuteness?
9. One Little Pumpkin
If you're waiting until you're well into the second trimester to announce your pregnancy, your baby might just be around the same size as this cute little pumpkin snapped by @tristinsmommy.
10. A Well Placed Pumpkin
Grey's Anatomy star Camilla Luddington let the pumpkin do the talking in her simple but chic announcement. I can't help but wonder if she was daydreaming about how long it would be before her baby bump was as big as the pumpkin.
11. Pregnant Pumpkin
This jack-o-lantern's got a surprise inside. Mom @ifnahh announced her new addition with a baby pumpkin and a mommy pumpkin.
