easy invitations for busy hosts. sponsored by Basic Invite

Tis the season for baby showers!! When I was pregnant I had 17 friends that were also pregnant with me.  It was a very fun season to say the least! Now it feels like there is another wave of parties to celebrate dear friends and their new babies! A few weeks ago I was researching different companies that had unique stationery to send out for party guests.  Hosting a few showers either at our house or at a fun venue, I wanted to make something special for each party to match not only the mom’s personality but would compliment their nursery themes.

I’ve linked all the images below so you can see how easy it will be to make your own creation!

I found Basic Invite and instantly fell in love with how easy it was to customize their products. For the first invite I was designing, these Boy Owl Shower Invitations were perfect for a little shower for our sweet cousin! I was able to customize everything from the color of the bird all the way to the color I wanted the bird’s eyes to be!

The process for making the Owl invites were so easy that within minutes I was creating for two more events this fall! These are so sweet and simple for a sprinkle coming up soon. It has a classic design that I am going to frame as a decoration in the new baby’s nursery! I decided to match a pink she’s using in the nursery thanks to Basic Invite’s easy color guide where you can match nearly any color in the world you want!  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! It really adds a personal touch when creating a perfect invitation. baby shower invitations templates editable

Getting to design this fun almost Wes Anderson stylized invite was so fun too! I loved being able to find something that looked hand drawn and unique for this sweet friend.  The easiest part of the process was being able to import addresses and use their system to compute and address ALL our invites!

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. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs


After the process to design all the invites for the showers were done I saw some fun baby announcements for the boys! Now they have individualized announcements that compliment their baby books and are keepsakes for us to have to remember how tiny they were!


Now you see how easy that was! What will you create next?!


Here are their social media links to keep up to date with new products!
