Big Sister Announcement Sign Review

3 Aug 2018

When I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted a special way to 'announce' the news that our family was growing and so I spent weeks and weeks looking for the perfect way to share our happy news. I browsed Pinterest for hours, thought up elaborate ideas of things we could do, themed photoshoots we could try and even big extravagant balloons and matching t-shirts. Then I came across a simple yet beautiful wooden sign and it was love at first sight, the perfect way to share our news.

A review of the Here's to Us I'm Going To Be A Big Sister wooden sign

I happened upon the I'm going to be a big sister sign when searching 'Big Sister announcements' over on Not on the Highstreet, from a seller named 'Here's to Us'. Approximately 10cm in diameter, the sign itself is a smooth wood, not too thick and chunky, with a delicate floral touch. It not only makes the perfect announcement sign - we loved being able to make Willow the focus of our announcement, after all, we know what it's like to become parents, but this is her first Big Sister role! -, but also a truly lovely keepsake. We'll be popping Willow's in her memory box for when she's older, for now, it resides in the living room where she loves to show any visits as she proudly proclaims 'I'm going to be a Big Sister!' with the biggest smile on her face.

Ordering, as always on Not on the Highstreet, was super simple and it wasn't too badly priced, either. £9.95 for the sign with free delivery, which is always a bonus! Delivery did take longer than expected, a week longer to be exact, and I did contact the seller but found communication wasn't great. I was almost ready to give up and had contacted NOTH for advice when it eventually turned up, but I was so chuffed with the sign itself that I no longer cared how overdue the delivery was, it had arrived and we loved it!

It may not have been the big 'surprise!' pregnancy announcement that social media is used to, but for our little family it was just perfect. If you're looking for a simple and easy way to share your baby news with a unique twist, this sign is absolutely lovely.
