The best parties always start with the right invitations. Whether you’re hosting a few friends for an intimate dinner party, or a big group for a night out salsa dancing, your invite makes the first impression of what the party will be like. Are you still sending plain cards in bulk, or getting your group confirmed with a messy group message on Facebook or Instagram? Listen Linda, it’s time to up your invitation game.
Enter, Basic Invite: one of the only truly customizable invitation boutiques I’ve seen online. While their invitations are anything but, their website is easy to use and offers literally thousands of options depending on your needs. They have almost unlimited color combinations (hello blush pink), with (40) different envelope colors to match. And yes, this includes the holy trinity of metallics: gold, rose gold and silver. I’m already geeking out about matching invitation colors to party color schemes (yes, I am a dork). Online preview is instant, allowing you to edit and customize your colors and design while you build your invitation. And if that isn’t enough, you can order a custom sample of your invitation before confirming your final order.
I am thinking about hosting a couple of parties in 2019 and I can’t wait to try out these invitations. For example, I have a few friends planning pregnancies this year, and Basic Invite definitely has cute and colorful baby shower invitations cards and the top baby shower games available for when we’re ready to get the party underway (fingers crossed for a baby girl, and I’m partial to the ladybug baby shower games).
Here’s what really puts Basic Invite a cut above the rest: they have an address capturing service that makes your invitation sending process a piece of pie. You (or the host) can share a link on social media; Twitter, Facebook or Insta, pick your poison. Then your guests can access that to share their mailing address. They’ll get saved right to your Basic Invite account and you can select who to send your party cards to when you’re ready to invite away. You can also print a list of registered addresses which I can see coming in handy for weddings and wedding-related activities.
Another thing I’m basically crazy about is their clear business cards! Something about the idea of a sheer card (being as into fashion as I am and all) with bold contact information sounds right on brand for me and almost too good to pass up. I definitely don’t need new marketing materials at the moment, but I may cave and order some just because of the uniqueness factor, especially since Basic Invite is having a 15% off sale right now with code 15FF51. If you’ve been on the fence about hosting a party, let this sale sway you in the direction of yes.
Thanks for reading this sponsored post with Basic Invite! Be sure to tell me which cute and custom invitations you select if you do use Basic Invite for your next gathering.
