Trendy Babies (and Their Announcements and Invitations)

This year, several new themes take center stage and we look forward to seeing them transpire into our baby announcements line.

Something new and festive that we haven't seen before is the cupcake theme. What a fun and gender-neutral way to announce your new arrival!

As your bundle of joy approaches their first birthday, the cupcake theme continues into birthday invitations and party décor.

Robots are coming back with a hint of nostalgia. Having boys of my own and younger nephews, I am excited to see how this theme developes. This is one we'll be keeping our eyes on.

One of the colors we'll be seeing more than ever is "honeysuckle", which is a shade of pink with a nostalgic twist (think lipstick you might see in Mad Men).

Animal prints, particularly zebra stripes, are all the rage already and show no signs of fading away anytime soon. This year we're seeing them combined with colors in the pink family as shown here in this fuchsia and zebra stripe Sweet 16 Invitation which could easily be used as a bold and festive birth announcement from a fashion-forward mom.

A new style emerging is what has been referred to as the "wallpaper look". I love this new look. It's an evolution of the Damask trend that's been couple of years now. We will likely see this trend on the photo and non-photo announcements.

One other "of the moment" trend that's emerging right now is bicycles.

Not only is there a certain nostalgia to the theme, it hints at environmental and economical consciousness with everyone's minds on the price of fuel rising out of control. And who doesn't love the sense of freedom that riding a two-wheeler imparts?

My favorite trend this year is the wallpaper design. What's yours?
