Easy Autumn Gender Reveal and Pregnancy Announcement Ideas

Autumn is the season for bountiful harvests, crisp nights and gorgeous foliage lighting up the landscape. If you’re having an autumn baby, embrace the colours and special qualities of fall to create a unique pregnancy announcement or gender reveal that will delight your friends and family.

Few things symbolize fall as distinctly as a pumpkin. While pumpkin flavoured everything fills the grocery store shelves and coffee shops, you can seize on the pumpkin theme by crafting a clever announcement showcasing the new little pumpkin in your expanding family (and belly!). Whether using a pumpkin shaped announcement or integrating pumpkin artwork and wording in the card, using a pumpkin is sure to be a cute way to announce your new pregnancy. 

Want to create a gender reveal with pumpkins? You could paint small pumpkins pink or blue and place the winning gender alongside the larger mommy and daddy pumpkins, or get in the Halloween spirit by carving “girl” or “boy” into the pumpkin and lighting it from within for all to see.

If you have a local pumpkin patch with a corn maze you can plan a fun autumn outing with family and friends and place your blue or pink pumpkins at the end of the maze to surprise your guests when they finally arrive at the end.

When the leaves change colour from green to fiery reds, yellows and oranges, you can collect them and incorporate these natural elements into a pregnancy announcement, pressing them between wax paper to create a bright, autumnal base layer for a card that’s easy to pop in the mail. If you're artistic, paint a family tree on a canvas or foam core using real leaves to decorate the branches and reveal the newest branch when your guests arrive at your home. Frame it after your reveal and hang it in the nursery. Everyone loves playing in the fallen leaves that gather on front lawns and backyards, so set up a scavenger hunt using piles of leaves as a pathway. The final pile can hide a box with a boy or girl painted pumpkin inside.

Of course, fall is also apple season. Create candy apples by dipping them in pink or blue melted candy coating and reveal the coloured apple for your girl or boy for dessert after a brunch. Make a fall version of a King Cake. Bake an apple pie and place a tiny porcelain baby girl or boy in the pie. Slice the pie and serve it to your guests and celebrate when one of them gets the mystery piece that reveals your baby’s gender.

Planning a gender reveal or pregnancy announcement in autumn means celebrating during a season full of delicious, comforting food, spectacular natural surroundings, and thankfulness. Invite your friends and family to join you on this exciting journey by planning an event that blends the best of fall with the joy of a new baby on the way.
