Getting Ready For The Festive Period.

basic invite review

We may only be a week into October but the Christmas period is coming up quick & fast and Basic Invite are here to help you get prepared…


As soon as it hits Autumn, everyone immediately starts thinking about Christmas. It annoyed me at first as I have so many events before it to think about, but inevitably I have started thinking about it too. There’s so much to do to prepare for the Christmas period and it’s impossible to not take it into consideration this early. A lot of people have already started buying Christmas presents, decorations, you know the drill… hell, I’ve even bought my first lot of decorations for the tree. It’s my first Christmas in my own home so I have nothing prepared, therefore I’m having to start early! If you’re planning on hosting lots of parties over the festive period, Basic Invite have you covered for the cutest invitations ever. Today I’m going to share a few examples of what you can order from them to help get you ready for all the festive celebrations to come, which I’m sure most of you will be participating in!

Basic Invite are an online company that provide personalised cards and invitations for every occasion. They have loads of holiday cards as well as cards for weddings, baby showers, new baby arrivals, first birthdays, graduations amongst plenty of other celebrations. You can go on their website, select a design of your choice and personalise it down to a T. The colour options are unlimited, so if you like a design but want to change the colours to say, fit your theme then you can. There are over 180 different colour options to there will easily be something to suit your taste. This sets them apart from other companies as they enable you to create your card exactly how you want it with no limitations. The colours also extend to their envelopes so you can select from over 40 different colours to make sure that even the envelopes fit in with your theme!

If you have your eye on more than one of their cards but would like to see them first before you choose a final design, they offer a service where you can order printed samples. This means you can see it finalised and feel the quality of it before you go back to place your final order. This is also a great option if you fancy some blog props, since I only got samples for the aim of this blog post, I’m going to use them in all of my Christmas flat lays!

Another brilliant service that they provide is an address capturing service. This allows you to share a link on social media to request the addresses of friends and family members which are then stored in your account and can be selected during the design process. What’s even better is that Basic Invite offer recipient address printing at no extra cost on all Christmas orders. This is perfect to avoid all of that writing out hundreds of cards palaver that some people sit down for hours to do!

I am absolutely obsessed with the cards that I have received. I have a selection of Christmas party invitations and holiday cocktail party invites as well as a couple of thank you cards that are perfect for sending to people post Christmas to thank them for gifts! Any foiled designs are available in gold, silver and rose gold which is perfect for us bloggers who love our gold & rose gold! You can also choose to have the foil flat or raised, so the options really are endless.

I think I’m going to be ordering my Christmas cards from here this year as they enable me to provide such minimal effort whilst looking absolutely beautiful and being personalised! I highly recommend having a look on their website because I was honestly blown away by how many different designs there are, as well as all of the personalisation options.

If you fancy getting your Christmas cards or invites from here this year, they are currently offering 30% off with the code holi30 so it’s really not an opportunity to miss! They are a US based company, and the shipping to the UK took two weeks for me, so now is the perfect time to get them ordered so that they arrive with plenty of time to spare.
