Today I'm sharing some details about one of my favorite aspects of Party Planning!
This post is in partnership with Basic Invite. All reviews and opinions expressed are my own.
I have always loved creating and sending paper invitations and thank you cards. I love receiving them in the mail and putting them in the girls' keepsake boxes. YES, I'm that person who keeps every card ever sent to her, but hey, it is so fun to look back and reminisce on the different milestones in life and those who shared in that special day!
After planning Pearl's 2nd Birthday Party, I got to work seeing what else was out there in terms of Thank you cards. I love adding personalization to my cards and thats when Basic Invite came into play.
Adding that personalized detail to my cards makes them that more special. The amount of detail in each card design package was unreal. You can purchase every paper element to your wedding or event in coordinating designs. Everything from save the date magnets to direction cards to stickers. STICKERS you guys. Stickers with my baby's face on them? Yes, please.
Another thing that I think gets easily overlooked is the paper. Using a quality paper makes ALL the difference in how your invites look and feel. I ordered a few samples to see the quality of paper and really see them side by side. I am of course attracted to all of the sparkly words to include: Premium Shimmer and Luxe Velvet. Don't those sound nice? I ordered 2 of the same personalized invite on the two different types of premium paper. And folks, they are dreamy...
You also would not believe the number of color options I could choose from. 180 to be exact! I'm a big color person and the thought of matching EXACT colors to my party was very intriguing. They also offer 40 different colors of envelopes so your letter stands out and this way you know your invite or thank you card will be the only one of its kind.
For this personalized thank you card, I chose the option for "Raised Foil" and it did not disappoint. These metallic gold dots add a serious dose of class to an already stunning card. And yes, every dot and star you see below, I got to choose the color.
Another thing that made Basic Invite stand out is the Address Capturing Service they offer. If you know me, then you also know about once a year you will most definitely get a message from me asking for your address.... because I've lost it. Again. Basic Invite will send you a link that you can share with your family and friends requesting their address that will then be safely stored on your account and can be printed on the envelope during the design process. No more asking and no more writing!
We had so much fun celebrating our Pearl and wanted to Thank everyone for coming and spending time with our big 2 year old! These invites and thank you cards from Basic Invite were just the ticket and will make a beautiful keepsake to go in her baby box.
