Finding That Perfect Card: First Birthday Invitations


Birthday parties aren’t basic. So why should the birthday invitations be?
Even if your planning a small intimate affair for your next birthday party, there are details that go into planning to make sure the guest of honour feels special.  Which design elements do you think make your guest of honor feel the most special?
I truly believe the atmosphere for a party is set the moment guests open their invitation. But, finding that perfect stationary is sometimes hard to come by. The design could be on point while the colour scheme is way off.

When faced with this problem, I typically would spend hours designing my own unique birthday invitations that suited my theme and color board- and that’s just not feasible for the majority of families. But good news y’all! I found an incredible solution- it’s called Basic Invite. A customizable invitation company that specializes in truly custom designs.

I Found the Unique Birthday Invitations I was Looking for

Then there they were, the unique birthday invitations I had been looking for, the Whimsical Forest First Birthday Invitation.  Could it be more suitable for a Our Little Chickadee theme?! But, if I had found this design on any other stationary site I would have passed. The colors, while stunning, just didn’t match my vision.
Luckily, I wasn’t on just any invitation website, I was designing a customizable invitation with Basic Invite.
Basic Invite has almost an unlimited color palette to choose from with an instant preview. They have over 180 color options! Now I could make sure the card was exactly how I wanted it. This invitation was going to be unique to my event down to the smallest detail.

From Color to Font it was a Complete Customizable Invitation Experience

But customization doesn’t stop with the color. If you look back at the original first birthday invitation design, you will notice I even customized the font! All these unique birthday invitations details might have some of you still overwhelmed and worried that the final product won’t turn out exactly how you envisioned it. But, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows the customer the option of ordering a sample print before placing the final order of their unique birthday invitations. This might save you from the embarrassing mistake of writing your child’s name wrong. Yay I did that on Evelyn’s birth announcement! That was a major #momfail.
It’s never been easier to make sure the color palette and paper quality fulfill the customers expectations.

Whether you’re looking for first birthday invitations, themed birthday invitations, or surprise birthday invitations, Basic Invite is going to make sure every detail has been specified to your theme and that its a true customizable invitation.
