Customize Your Life with Basic Invite!


My friends and family know that I love to host parties. Last summer I hosted the most beautiful backyard dinner party, and over the holiday season I had my housewarming and a Christmas karaoke party. To me, you really set the tone for your event with the invite. For all of my parties, I put my “graphic design” skills to use on Canva and made cute little invitations that I sent to each person via text. I like for people to know that I take my hosting very seriously, so I tend to go all out!

While text invitations are super convenient for my generation, sometimes there’s nothing like receiving something tangible in the mail. It’s like, “Wow, you really want me to come?!” Coming up with a design for an invitation can be the most challenging part – even more challenging than putting your guest list together! That’s why websites like Basic Invite exist.


Basic Invite is a site that allows you to design your own invites and stationery. Known as the “Truly Custom Invitation Company,” they have over 180 color options, 40 different colors of envelopes, and gold, silver and rose gold foil options. Some other cool features about Basic Invite are that they let customers order printed samples of their invitations so they can see how the product will look before placing their final order, and they have an address capturing feature where customers can share a link on social and capture friends’ and family members’ addresses and store them in their online account. No more hounding people via phone for their addresses, yay!

If you have an event coming up and don’t want to settle for a plain ol’ invite, I definitely recommend checking out Basic Invite. They’ve got birthday invitations, wedding invitations, twin baby shower invitations (yes, you read that right!), and even some cool baby shower games! They literally have everything you could think of on this one website.

I’m taking a break from hosting parties for a little bit because I’m really trying to focus on decorating and organizing my place, but I just couldn’t pass up the stationery that Basic Invite had to offer. I love getting handwritten notes and cards (I used to keep every card that was ever given to me), so I ordered myself a stack of notecards and personalized them to match my blog colors. I can’t wait to have a reason to send some of these out in the mail!


Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off with their coupon code: 15FF51. They’re already very reasonably priced, so this extra discount is really like the cherry on top!
