Needless to say, I have been through the party planning ringer over the past few years. Mike and I were the first to get married and start families in both of our families, but it felt like an immediate domino effect after! In two years I have thrown two baby showers, one bridal shower, and two bachelorette parties, all for siblings. Throw my festive birthday parties on top of those, and I am pretty partied out! 😉 And while it looks like I am done hosting wedding showers or bachelorette parties (for now), I also know that means there will be baby showers to come! I may not have any to plan this very second, but I would be lying if I said I haven’t already started brainstorming ideas!
Creative Invitations with Basic Invite
One of my favorite details in planning any sort of shower or party is the invitations. They absolutely set the stage for the entire event, and give people a little taste of what is to come! As someone who LOVES themes, I always feel like the invitations are the grand reveal of what is to come! I have always done my research when choosing invites to make sure it is something that aligns with the party, and it turns into a keepsake for the guest of honor, too! In fact, one of my favorite things to do when hosting a baby shower is to ask the mom to be what her nursery plans are. That way, they can reuse so many of the decorations and party items to decorate as they prepare for baby!
Like I said, I have already been imaging future party themes for the showers I will be hosting in the future. Basic invite organizes options by theme, and I absolutely love all of the baby duck options-they remind me of the spring baby shower I threw last year! And if anyone ever decides to be patient and NOT find out the gender, I love how neutral jungle themes are.
How adorable is this card from the baby boy shower invites?!
Of course, even if they do find out, the rubber duck baby shower invitations or jungle baby shower invitations can be color customized! There are some amazing features that make Basic Invite the best option for invitations. My all time favorite option is being able to customize invitation colors! I cannot tell you how many times I have found an invitation I love, but the colors didn’t match my vision. You can adjust colors and preview them instantly online, so you truly are able to create something totally custom. You an even select the color of your envelopes! And once you have made up your mind, Basic Invite allows you to receive a sample to see your invitation live and in person, before ordering a large amount. Right now, they are offering 15% off of orders with code 15FF51, be sure to tell them I sent you! 🙂
