Tall Mom tiny baby: HOW TO SEND A BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND MICKEY MOUSE

HOW TO SEND A BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND MICKEY MOUSE

Monday, April 22, 2013


One of the many traditions after having a new baby is sending birth announcements out to loved ones near and far. My mom vividly remembers filling out my announcements the night I was born. Nowadays, most parents wait a week or two to send these delightful letters out in the mail, because they want to include photos of their tiny babies.

I decided to use photos from our newborn photo shoot, with Rhode Island photographer, Erica Shea, as well as the photo sharing website, Shutterfly, to create our birth announcements.
In addition to our friends and family, I have decided to send birth announcements to the President of the United States, as well as the second most important family in the land - Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Rumor has it that both will send a congratulations letter back - and I hope its true. That would be one super cool addition to Itty Bitty's Baby Book!

If you'd like to send birth announcements to the White House or the the Magical Kingdom, just send them to the addresses below:

President Barack Obama & Mrs Obama
The White House
White House Greetings Office
Room 39
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

Mickey & Minnie Mouse
Walt Disney World
1675 N Buena Vista Dr
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

I sent the President and First Lady an invitation to our wedding, and we received a lovely letter back from them. Hopefully the birth announcement gets a response as well :)

Have you ever sent an announcement to the President?

  9. We sent a wedding invitation to the White House, Micky and Minnie, and Cinderella and Prince Charming. Cinderella never got back to us, but we too received a nice post card from the Prez and Mickey.

  11. For those of you that live in NJ, if you send one to Chris Christie, he will send you a hand-signed letter.

    1. A friend of mine sent it to the president, disney and a few actors. She said the most memorable one was from John Travolta, his seemed more personal and congratulated both on their marriage.

  26. That is such a great idea that would make a nice memento for the child. I was invited to the White House a few years ago but I can imagine someone being just as excited to get a letter from the President or First Lady for a new baby.
