My eldest son has a pretty big milestone birthday coming up, he will be turning ten next month. Yup, the big 1-0. DOUBLE DIGITS! While I’m not super confident that I have this Mom thing down yet and that I’m not messing him up for life, I AM pretty confident that my ugly cry will be on point that day.
Being a mom for close to a decade now, (wait, what?) I’ve experienced my fair share of birthday party planning madness.
I used to start planning his birthday parties months in advance. (seriously, like 6 months in advance) Picking out the perfect theme, shopping around for the perfect decorations and even spending countless hours at the kitchen table hand making the perfect invitations to match. But life with 3 kids seems to get busier as they get older (who knew?) and while I may not have all the time or let’s be honest, energy to spend hours creating the perfect Minecraft invite anymore, it doesn’t mean I have to settle for generic, fill in the blank cards from the party store. I still want them to have a unique special day and be able to add a splash of their personalities too!
I’m always looking for ways to simplify my life as a mom and share them with as many other moms as possible because really, we need to stick together to make it through this hood and sharing is caring, right? So, let me introduce you to my party planning paradise, Basic Invite. It’s never been easier to create invitations online
First let me tell you, with Basic Invite you won’t only find childrens birthday invitations
You will find and have the opportunity to create and customize the most beautiful, unique, modern invitation for EVERY special event you can think of annnd as a mom, that’s A LOT of events, Am I right!? From Birth announcements to Baptisms, Showers to Weddings (I know, I know, slowwww down) you will find it at Basic Invite.
Here are a few of my favorite invites being considered for my son’s big party, also my decade of motherhood celebration – haha! Again, these are all fully customizable right down to the envelope color! See all of them here
So, here are a few reasons why I thought I should share my party planning paradise with you and why I find them so great!
Custom Samples – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order. Uhm, how awesome is that? In my opinion, A successful party is all about the details, and the invites set the tone for the entire event so it’s important to make sure they are just what you had in mind.
Almost Unlimited Colors – Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is definitely one of things that sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.
Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes – You can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to your envelopes so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of their envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.
Address Capturing Service – Ok guys, how amazing is this part? Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Because really, who has time to address 50 envelopes, not me!
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51 so mama, if you’re looking to create beautiful, unique, invitations for your next event while staying (mostly) sane through it all, NOW is the time! I promise you won’t regret it! BUT if you’re not in the planning stages of your next event just yet, you can find them on all of your favorite social channels below.
