Basic Invite Custom Holiday Party Invitations

We have now entered my favorite time of the year... HOLIDAY season! It is time for EVERYTHING holiday related. I'm taking decorations, huge hearty meals, sweet desserts and treats, buying gifts for loved ones, and parties! A lot of my friends and family tease me all of the time because I start gearing up for Christmas in like late September, haha! I just can't get enough of the anticipation and excitement that is involved when you're leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is truly the most wonderful time of the year!

Four years ago, my husband and I started our Annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party and we have not looked back. I'm super excited to be planning our 4th annual party right now. There's always so much to do in preparation for a super fun party and in order to keep my stress levels down, I start those preparations early. Today, I am partnering with Basic Invite to share their custom holiday party invitations with you. I'm so picky when it comes to these things, but I'm lucky because Basic Invite has so many options for your holiday party invitation needs.

Have you guys heard of Basic Invite? They are an invitation and stationery company that has custom cards for basically any and every major life event that you want to share with family and friends. Basic Invite has cards and invitations for parties, graduations, birthdays, baby showers, and even wedding invitations. It's the perfect one stop shop for all of your stationery needs.

I ordered a couple samples of their Christmas party invitations and they are awesome! When we first started our Christmas party, I mailed out invitations and my husband thought I was ridiculous for it, but once he saw how cute they were, he hopped right on board. I just feel that it is more personal when you mail them. Last year, I ran out of time and just had to send a text invitation out and I was really bummed about it. Now that I am back planning ahead, I should have the time to mail invitations out again. It's such a special touch, am I right?! :)

When browsing the Basic Invite website, I was really impressed by the quality of their invitations and their Christmas cards. I have never seen such a huge and diverse selection! Here are some of the awesome things I noticed while browsing their site, and what really sets them apart from some other card companies:
  • OPTIONS - Basic Invite has over 250 Christmas card and Holiday Card designs. For a picky person like me, this is amazing because I am SURE to find something I love in all of these options!
  • FOIL - I love that you can add foil details in either gold, silver, or rose gold. It just adds a little holiday flare.
  • CUSTOM SAMPLES - Y'all. Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as feel the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order! How cool is that?!
  • ALMOST UNLIMITED COLORS - You can select the colors you want and have an instant preview online with your selected colors! You know how some websites just TELL you they have more colors, but you don't actually get to see your selections until they come? Well, Basic Invite goes the extra mile so you can really be sure you will love what you're getting before you get it. Not to mention all of the different color options they have! Just look at some of the photos above.

If those things aren't enough to convince you of how amazing they are, they also have over 40 different colors of envelopes to choose from and an address capturing service! This is handy because social media is all the buzz, you know. Customers can share a link on their social media to request their friends and families addresses, and when they finish their design process, they can add the addresses with NO additional cost for Christmas cards. I've never tried this before, but I know it would definitely make my Christmas card mailing process much easier!

I hope that I have got you excited and ready to plan your own Holiday party with invitations from Basic Invite! If all of the perks above aren't convincing enough, right now, Basic Invite is offering 30% off with the coupon code: holi30.

Happy party planning! Be sure to stop by and show me your invitations or Christmas cards if you order some. I'd love to see them!
