The Beauty of a Personal Invitation

The Beauty of a Personal Invitation

In this tech-savvy day and age, most of us send out and receive invites by email. Yes, it’s convenient and efficient. But, there is something so intimate and personal about receiving an invitation in the mail. Don’t you agree? It definitely feels thoughtful and sets the right tone for the event or gathering. The invite alone speaks about how formal or casual the event will be. Things like the selection of paper and fonts are the very first thing a guest will see, and they set the tone for the event.


But I know Girl Bosses how busy we all are. Our days are filled with to-do lists a mile long, and we are running around trying to accomplish our goals, balance our work and home life, and not miss a beat. So what if I shared a life hack with you today? What if you had a really easy way to create invites that spoke volumes in terms of creativity and style, but they were as easy as 1-2-3?


Recently I came across a company called Basic Invite, and they really are anything but basic! Their templates, selection of beautiful incredible selection of colors, font and layout options sparked my creative juices instantly. They literally have more than 180 color options. It’s like the huge Crayola box we used as kiddos!


Since I am a bit of a perfectionist, I really like the fact that you can see previews of your invite instantly online where you can make lots of changes and see what it will truly look like. And even better, they let you order a printed sample of the invite you design so you can check it out before your guests would. You can feel the quality of the paper, the printing—it takes all the guess work out of the process.


The other feature that got me excited is that you can have the recipient’s address printed directly on the envelopes. Fancy! There is no added charge when ordering your cards. Crazy right? And the envelopes come in so many beautiful colors. 40 color choices!


What about the working Mom on the go that’s trying to throw together a great graduation party for her teen? Basic Invite’s got you covered! They have a treasure trove of college graduation ceremony invitations, beautiful graduation announcements, and so much more! The Hollywood Graduation invitations and / or announcements are the cutest way to make your teen feel like the star that they are! When I saw those, I was suddenly wishing that my kids were graduating again so I could throw them a cute Hollywood themed celebration!


Well, with fun summer get-togethers around the corner, lots of graduations to celebrate, wedding showers etc., this may be just the personal touch your party needs. I know that for me, I plan to send out my “change of address” and housewarming invites this way when Jeff and I get to Arizona. Oh, and for the procrastinators amongst us, it is not a lengthy turnaround time. They literally arrive in 5 days.


When you want to entertain with style and flair, hop on over to check out all their fun options. If you use this code 15FF51 you will get 15% off.

And what Girl Boss doesn’t want to be the hostess with the mostest?


I’m all about bringing creativity and style to everything I do.  And celebrating accomplishments and special moments in life are what leading an exceptional life is all about! By the way my lovelies, if you have a fabulous party—don’t forget to invite me! :)
