Planning Ahead: Holiday Season with Basic Invite!

It’s July, y’all! We’re already halfway through the year. Can you believe it? Time flies! As I start to plan for the rest of the summer, I realize it’s time to start planning for the holiday season too! Before I know it, Fall will be here, school will be back in session, and events will be back to back, as the normal chaos resumes. On top of that? I’m throwing a holiday party as well as hosting several dinners for family and friends. So now it’s time to plan these events, create custom invitations, do a holiday cards photo session, and then order our deluxe holiday cards. Quite a to do list!

By planning ahead, I get to truly enjoy the moments that matter with the people I love the most while celebrating just how good this life can be. A few weeks ago, I found this amazing stationary company called Basic Invite. They create invitations that are fully customizable and have everything available to make the entire process a breeze! They are actually one of the few sites that allows their customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation. So you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order. Amazing!


One of my favorite things about Basic Invite is the 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 options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. You can also choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that you can make your invitation stand out even before it is opened! All of their envelopes are peel and seal too so envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

There are so many options for cards including one I love: foil cards! They are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. And you can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs. They also do year in review holiday cards and one of the best perks: they offer an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media platform, request your friends and family’s addresses, which are stored in your account, and then you can select them during the design process. They also do recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders!


I’m so grateful for this life, that I have things to plan for, and people to enjoy them with. And I’m so happy to find a company like Basic Invite that makes event planning easy and fun! Their invitations and stationary not only make your guests feel special but also your event. And with so many great options for holiday cards, I don’t have to worry about finding the perfect one for spreading love during the holiday season. Be sure to connect with them on their social media sites and check out their website to order your truly custom invitations and stationary! For 15% off your order, use the coupon code 15FF51.

Happy Holiday Season planning, friends!
