1st Birthday Invitation Bliss - Basic Invite

This is a sponsored post from Basic Invite.

If you've followed my blog for a while, you know we have 5 kids, so saying we've had more than a couple "1st Birthdays" in our house is an understatement! And you would also know that I LOVE to throw an amazing party...

1st birthday parties are the most important, right? You are so excited to throw the best first birthday party for your baby and you want everything to be flawless. You spend hours on Pinterest choosing the perfect theme, you start gathering all the essentials - Party themed tableware - check, balloons galore - check, color coordinated wrapping paper - check, decor (premade or Pinterest-worthy or somewhere in between) - check.

Now, it’s time to invite your guests, but where do you start? Finding the perfect invitation for a party can be a task. You like this font, but that color or this design, but that texture. It can be challenging and downright discouraging.

Let me introduce to you a wonderful stationery dreamland called Basic Invite.



Basic Invite is an online stationery company that has a card for almost every major life moment including personalized wedding invitations, custom birth announcements, and most importantly in this case - creative first birthday invitations.

What is so special about that? Just wait… Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allow customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Instead of being confined to your local stationery store’s limited stock all you have to do is scroll through until you find your favorite design and then customize it into the perfect invitation. It’s that easy. And it’s even more fun than it sounds!

If you are still skeptical about purchasing invitations online - I totally understand. Like me, you might feel a bit nervous that they won’t turn out exactly how you envision them, but that’s just it - Basic Invite gives you the opportunity to order custom samples of the actual invitation so you can see exactly what it will look like and exactly how it will FEEL before making your final purchase.


If that isn’t courtesy, I don’t know what is!

Here are the samples I ordered for Abigail's 1st Birthday! I was so blown away by the quality, it was so hard to choose which one to order!!!


The two sided one left more room for adding party details!



I liked that you can round off the corners on the invitations! 


I really loved this shaped design! {this is also the one I got with semi-gloss paper}


The samples were sent in a package that included the different paper options and colors available so I have a reference point for future orders too!

The Shimmer is gorgeous and I really loved the texture of the semi-gloss!


Colors for every occasion! You can change the paper color, the design colors - the customization is really endless here!

A first birthday is such a huge milestone - the little one everyone is celebrating may not remember the day in it’s entirety, but all your guests who came to celebrate sure will! Choose one of the 40 different colored envelopes and make those invitations REALLY pop right from the start!

RIGHT NOW, Basic Invite is offering 15% off everything right now! Go check out their site and grab the code!

Happy 1st Birthday to your little one and happy customizing to you!
