How to Get People Excited for Your Summer Party with Basic Invite
This post is sponsored by Basic Invite. All opinions are 100% my own.
I'll be the first one to admit it: I am more fun in the summer. Anybody else feel that way? There's something about this season that brings out the best in people. People are more relaxed, the living is easy, and there's nothing like a good fruity cocktail. I don't know a single person who wants to stay inside when the sun is shining. Though after getting a pretty wicked sunburn this weekend, I probably should stay inside more...
Since we're all agreeing that we should get out more (and wear sunscreen) now that it's summer, let's talk summer parties. Everybody seems to be throwing a summer party, everything from graduation parties to baby showers. Standing out in the sea of Facebook invites and other summer activities can be hard. That's why I'm thrilled to be partnering with Basic Invite to show you how to create beautiful invitations to get people excited for your summer party.
What is so amazing about Basic Invite is that you can customize basically all parts of the invitation.
Start with color. Rustic theme fourth of July bbq? Go with that craft paper option. Planning a bachelorette weekend down the shore? Use the bride's colors to make the invitations unique to her. You can also customize the font, the color of the font, and even the placement of each element on the card. I also love that you can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes to customize it further.
Feeling overwhelmed by making too many choices?
Looking just to grab a theme and go? There are hundreds of different themes, perfectly designed, that'll match your event. Since I'm currently in the baby shower season of life, I skimmed through their selection of baby shower invites for girls. There are so many amazing choices from traditional storks to colorful rainbows.
I am allll about the book theme baby showers. I was kind of thinking I might steal the invite for my birthday next year. First of all, I can customize it. Second, how much fun would a book themed party be? Like stacks of books, lots of snacks, and chatting about fictional characters? I'm all in.
You don't have to be nervous about ordering invitations online.
I know a lot of people get funny now about ordering invitations online. What if you mess something up? This was literally my biggest fear when we were doing our Save-the-Dates (which Basic Invite also has!). Everything looks so different online. Basic Invite sends you a completed sample so that you can see how everything looks together, plus feel the weight of the paper. Making baby shower invitations or any other invitations becomes effortless and painless knowing that you can see what it's going to be like before buying a whole batch.
Getting people excited for your summer party is really easy when you send out unique invitations. Who doesn't love receiving a little bit of pretty snail mail?
