Oliver’s Tolkein-Inspired Birth Announcements

We’ve seen Game of Thrones-inspired wedding invitations – and now Tolkein-inspired birth announcements! Meghan of OFD Consulting and her husband Travis are huge J.R.R. Tolkien fans and recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Oliver. For his birth announcements, Meghan and Travis knew they wanted to draw inspiration from their literary hero. They worked with Anticipate Invitations and a slew of talented vendors to create a birth announcement that could have come straight out of the pages of The Hobbit!


From Meghan: My husband Travis and I are a bit notorious among our friends and family for loving all things geeky (our nursery is a great representation), so we wanted to do something particularly memorable for our son’s birth announcements. I handed the reins over to my friend Michael from Anticipation Invitations and let him run with it. I spent years working in the wedding industry and learned early on that you should just trust the professionals, so we gave him little directions other than… “The Lord of the Rings… and go!”


We were thrilled with the finished product, which is reminiscent of a page out of a Tolkein book. We showcased photos on the front and back, and recipients were delighted to see their mailing address in a Hobbit-esque font.




Thanks Meghan!
