Blogmas #9 - Baby's first Christmas card!

So if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that Luke is the star of our Christmas cards this year. We have never been ones to do printed Christmas cards in previous years, but as it's our first Christmas with a baby we decided to go all out.

I actually took the photo myself and have to say I was really please with how it turned out. It was so easy, fuss free and Luke didn't get at all grumpy.
I draped a red velvet throw over a bean bag and Luke was more than happy to lie on it and play with some fairy lights (battery powered of course!). As a finishing touch I decided to scatter some cheapy baubles around him and the end result was very festive. I felt like a very Pinterest worthy mummy!

Luke wore a little Father Christmas onesie from Next which looked totally gorgeous. However it would appear that Luke has a larger than average head and the matching hat didn't fit, meaning we had to improvise and use a sparkly one I got for a party years ago. A little bit feminine and fabulous, but no one minds on a baby!

After some careful googling I chose to get the cards printed with Optimalprint - they had a really good selection of designs and all Christmas cards were half price! They arrived within a couple of days and look lovely. It did come to more than we would usually spend on cards, but it was totally worth it and I think all our friends and family are going to love them!

All that's left to do now is write them... which will inevitably happen one panic stricken evening the week before Christmas!

Are any of your little ones starring on Christmas cards this year? We'd love to have a look, post your pictures in the comments below.

Happy Blogmas! X


  1. That is THE cutest card I've ever seen, absolutely perfect! xx

  2. How amazing and a DIY effort; even better. He looks adorable and I bet everyone will love their cards. I haven't done this and wish I had!! Thanks for linking with #bestandworst and see you soon x

  3. Ahhh he looks so cute! I think when it's baby's first Christmas it's only right you go all out on the cards...especially as it won't be so easy to get him to sit still when he's 3 hehe! (trust me...I have a 3 year old....we didn't go for printed cards this year for this exact reason!). Wishing you all a merry christmas and I hope his first Christmas is a special one xx #bestandworst

    1. I thought it was best to do it when he wasn't yet able to move by himself!! Xx
