With an almost eight month old on my hands I can hardly believe how Isaiah's first year has flown by. Seriously, it feels like yesterday that I was choosing my baby shower invitations and prepping for his arrival! Baby's first year is a fast one- and filled with so many firsts to cherish and hold on to. From the prep of a baby shower to their first birthday party you want to make each celebration a good one- and it all starts with the invites!
For this blog post, I teamed up with Basic Invite to share about their invitations that you can use to help celebrate your baby. They gave me the opportunity to pick out and customize a few samples of my own- and let me tell you, it was SO FUN to really get creative! As much as I wanted to get crazy with it, I refrained from a few of them; Just because I really wanted to show you the adorable designs they have to offer in their original state.
How Basic Invite Works
So you have an event you want to include others in? Head over to Basic Invites website and select from their various invite presets to get started. Now a days there are means where you can make your own invitations, but with this website I don't have to worry about anything other than getting my info correct. Seriously, it's that simple.
Doing EVERYTHING on my own I'm sure there will be errors, plus who wants to print and cut all those invites by hand? I LOVE how I can get a sample of my exact invite that I designed sent straight to me before I order a set so I can catch a typo or change a font. You can customize right down to the envelope colors- this company is so far from being basic!
Baby Shower Invites
With the samples I ordered, I got three different baby shower invites to show you and I know I'm not the only one who must be thinking how cute these are! I love how easy it was to change the greeting and colors on these invites. Did you know Basic invite offers over 180 different color options making getting the exact look you want on your stationary completely your own?! I love to stand out and be a bit different when it comes to party planning and Basic Invite really allows me to do that effortlessly! My favorite from the bunch is the woodland animal invite- such a fun gender neutral baby shower theme and the invites came out absolutely perfect.

Basic Invite also offers a " real foil" option in Gold, Silver and Rose Gold to give your design a pop- you can have it flat or raised!
I never made a birth announcement for my son, so this card is SO SPECIAL to me! During the designing process I was the most worried about this one because it was a non professional iphone photo of Isaiah when he was just a few weeks old. Could have fooled me! This card came out so beautiful and clear- y'all it brought tears to my eyes to see this. I'm saving this one in his baby book, so glad I have this to look back on!
Baby's First Baptism/ Dedication
For baby's first baptism or dedication, Basic Invite has you covered! Simple and sweet premade designs are available for you to send out to all of your family and friends to celebrate the occasion.
Don't remind me of how fast this kids birthday is approaching (ugly cry) needless to say I'm pre planning and already have my eye on a few invites that I can use for when it's time to celebrate my little boy. I made a girl and boy style invite to show you guys, I adore the fun colors and customization option to add in our own photo! The one with us came out amazingly well- this was a pro photo taken of Isaiah and I and looked stunning on this mock invite!
Here's something that I thought was cool: 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. No cost to you for address recipient printing for all Christmas card orders! Below are a few more examples of invites they have to offer. From Graduations to Weddings this company can truly cover baby's first year and BEYOND! Because after all, your child will always be your baby and invites are timeless.
Thank you again to Basic Invite for allowing us to try out their invite designing process- im in love!
