Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe, but my sweet Mason is about to turn ONE! Excuse me while I go cry and hug and squeeze him (as long as he’ll let me). Not sure how that happened, but it’s here. So these last few months I’ve been thinking about his birthday party. I realized there are a toooon of cute themes out there! It’s so hard to choose one! If you’ve ever planned any type of children’s birthday party or baby shower, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. If you’re super creative and have an idea in mind already, that’s awesome! But if you can’t seem to settle on one, here’s a little tip to make easier on you… START with your invitation! 

I’ve always been a geek for pretty stationary, so I could look through invite designs all day long! How gorgeous are some of these?

But to get specific to your event, I recommend searching through your party category to find an invitation that stands out to you! For instance, if you’re throwing a baby shower, I would search through these customize baby shower invitations from Basic Invite until you see one that resonates with you most!

So for instance, how adorable is this lady bug invite?! And not only is it cute, but it offers a great place to start your party planning! After picking this invitation I would then start searching on Pinterest for different types of lady bug themed decoration ideas, cake designs, lady bug shower games, etc. 

The great thing about the invitations through Basic Invite are that they are completely customizable, with almost unlimited color options and over 40 different color envelopes! This will allow you to pick the exact colors you want to make sure your invite and party decorations match! They’re also one of the only websites that allow you to order a printed sample of your invite before you make your final order. No more getting a box full on invites in the mail and not being completely satisfied with how they turned out! 

And the cherry on top of all of this is, right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

Let the party planning begin!!
