Party Planning Made Easy With Basic Invite

Party Planning Made Easy With Basic Invite

When I was approached by Basic Invite to collaborate on this sponsored post, I took it as a sign this collaboration was meant to be. I am so behind on all of my correspondence. 

When approached by Basic Invite to collaborate on this sponsored post, I took it as a sign this collaboration was a sign. I'm behind on all of my correspondence. 

I am working over 80 hours a week and running a household. Since I’ve worked for myself, I am working more hours now ever, and I’m having a hard time balancing everything.

In fact, I’m having such a hard time when I got sick around Christmas I forgot to send out cards and thank you notes. Every time I remembered that I forgot (sorry Grandma) I forgot again. Right now I feel terrible about that.

Right now I have a Sweet 16 party and anniversary to plan. I need to create invitations. Do I want to customize the colors decide whether not I want foil because Rose Gold is trendy right now? Basic Invite has over 180 different color options I can customize the invite the way want it to be down to a tee. 


Basic Invite has an address capturing service. You do not have upload the addresses. Share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and request your friends and family’s addresses. When a person submits the address, it's saved to your account and used during the design process. 

Recipient address printing is free on all Christmas card orders. You don't address the envelopes. 

I don’t have to label the invites which are great because my handwriting looks like hieroglyphics. I will pick one of the brightest of the forty envelope colors, so my invites stand out in the mailbox.

It's perfect that Basic Invite has birthday invitations. The Sweet 16 invitations I was looking for and for other occasions which I needed invites and cards for. I’m way behind. I have a lot of birthdays anniversaries and events coming up this year. When you get sick you get so behind, and you can’t do much when you’re in your sickbed but you can use your phone to order invites, and Basic Invite will send you a sample.  

Ordering a sample means you can check out the quality of the paper before you commit to ordering. The price points are great they start at under a dollar per invite.

I had been looking to order a Sweet 16 party invitations, so I was more than thrilled when I went to the website and I realized that I could choose from many designs and can insert any photo I want. I could change the font. Or change the background color. What blew me away was the colors are very detailed. There are eight shades of yellow.

As far as color selections go, I don’t have to settle for what’s closest to, but get what I want. The color selection is outstanding. 

The thing is about invitations for something like a Sweet 16 Party is we overlook is the invitation itself. Guests keep these invites as a souvenir to remind them of the event, so I want to make sure that the actual invite is just as perfect as the event itself.

I’m glad I found out about Basic Invite because I’m sick. My doctor told me I would be sick for the next two weeks and not to expose myself to the public. I can’t just go down the street and meet with someone at a print shop and go back-and-forth until everything is perfect. Basic Invite's the best service for me because I can do all the work online from a computer. Basic Invite will send me the sample then I can place my order.


It's wonderful that Basic Invite approached me because I did not know how I would get all of this party planning done. The invitation makes a strong first impression on the guest; it has to be a great invite. 

With all that Basic Invite has to offer I can make anything I need an invitation, a thank you note, stationary or even a business card. Basic Invite also offers free wedding websites, and they are gorgeous. 

I am a fan of Basic Invite, and I plan on using them for all of my invites and cards this coming year. I hope you will too. Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51.
