During this holiday season, we can turn your Bun Announcement into a Christmas tree ornament for only $1 more! Simply choose that option on the right, in the listing variations above the Add to Cart button.


In order to receive your order by Thanksgiving, you must do the following:

1: Place your order no later than midnight on the 17th (Pacific Time) and add Rushed Production to your order, this can be found in our shop and added to your cart prior to checkout.
2: Select Priority Mail upon checkout.

Orders placed after the 17th with Rushed Production and Express Mail may make it in time for Thanksgiving, but cannot be guaranteed due to occasional USPS delays.


1. Choose your desired note style (see product photos for numbered note examples)

2. Add the appropriate quantity of Buns to your shopping cart.

3. Type your note wording into the "seller notes" box (the box appears when you view your shopping cart). Please type your desired wording like this:
Line 1: Your Wording
Line 2: Your Wording
Line 3: Your Wording
Line 4: Your Wording

4. Place your order, selecting your desired shipping speed (note: purchase of faster shipping speeds up the USPS transit time, but does not speed up the production time here in the shop - we have a Rush My Order add-on listing available for speeding up shop production time :-)

5. Your order will ship out from the shop in 2-5 business days (our business days are Monday through Friday - we are closed on the weekends). We usually ship within 1-3 business days, but it depends on the season, as we occasionally need the full 5 business days to get to your order in the queue because of high order volume. We love that our customers are excited about their orders, so we will always strive to get your order into the mail as soon as humanly possible!

6. Receive your individually packaged Buns and either hand them out to all of your family and friends, or address them, and send them through the mail!


Q: What if I want different Buns in my order to say different things?
A: No problem! I'll simply write on the bottom of each box in pencil, indicating which Buns are which.

Q: Can you ship directly to my family and friends?
A: We'd be happy to ship directly to your family and friends if you place completely separate orders for each destination, each with the appropriate address in the shipping-address-entry field. Please remind us (in the seller notes box) when you check out for each item, that that order is going straight to your recipient, and we'll leave out the packing slip and use neutral tissue paper (instead of the baby-pastel colors we normally use - wouldn't want to give away the surprise before they open the box!).

These customizable "Bun in the Oven" pregnancy announcements, baby shower invitations, and gender reveal announcements are sure to be memorable keepsakes for all who receive them.

Each unit contains an adorable, hand sculpted and brush-colored bread bun nestled into a bed of cheese cloth with an artificial greenery accent, in a box with "Bun in the Oven" stamped on the inside of the top flap. Each custom note scroll is slipped into a hole at the top of the bun with half of the note protruding, for your recipients to discover.

Because these announcements are handmade, there will be very slight variances in color for each bun.

The little brown boxes are tied with raffia ribbon and packed snugly and individually into bubble-wrap-padded boxes. These 3"x3"x3" white shipping boxes are called "indestructo" shipping boxes for a reason. They will keep your delicate invitations safe and sound in the mail.


You will receive your individually packaged units (in their uncrushable boxes) in a larger box for your convenience. The white mailers will be ready to address and send as soon as you receive them!

When you take a stack of these little boxes to the post office to mail them to your friends and loved ones, you'll be happy to know that these tiny boxes are so small and light (under 3 oz.) that they qualify for USPS First Class shipping at only $2.74 per box.

Curious about the total shipping cost of your order? Please see the bottom section of this description.

Thank you to all my lovely customers who posted these sweet videos!

All buns in any given order will ship from our shop to only ONE address. We'd be happy to ship single eggs directly to your family and friends if you place a separate order for each separate address.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions before you order. We are friendly, enthusiastic, and we look forward to talking with you!
