Train Theme Birthday Invitations (with Basic Invite)
~Disclosure: This is a paid sponsored post with Basic Invite. All opinions are my own.~
If you know Emmett, you know he loves trains. Our church is directly next to a railroad and every Sunday he can be found with his face pressed against the glass as a train rolls by. So when I listed out some theme options for his party, he picked trains immediately. The irony to all of this is that almost all of Emmett’s friends here are girls. Girls like trains too, right!?
If you know me, you know I love to plan parties and events. My children will be spoiled for life much to my husband’s sighs. First plan of attack was to figure out an invitation. Basic Invite was the perfect choice for so many reasons and they came through 100%. I also got matching thank you cards! My husband even commented on how nicely they turned out!
Designing the invitation was SO much fun. I am all about color and Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card. There are over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it. I actually tuned a baby shower invitation into a toddler birthday party invitation. Changing the color scheme to something for kid-like was the fun part! I tried to keep in mind that this was for a boy and didn’t go crazy in the purple department (like I may have wanted to). 😀
If you need help gathering addresses, Basic Invite offers an address capturing service. It allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook or any other form of social media. It will request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account. They can then be selected during the design process. And if you are thinking ahead, Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders. Because let’s face it, some of us love Christmas cards a whole lot (I’m looking at me)!
Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
I am so excited to have Emmett’s invitations and thank you notes. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!
