There’s something about this time of year that makes me think of the sweet little ones in my life. Maybe because it feels like spring is around the corner, that magical time when everything becomes fresh and reborn. The little lady who first made me auntie, Ella Joy, was born on May 1, and she was a sight to see. A perfect bundle, wrapped in cozy blankets, wearing a tiny hospital beanie. I held her close, in awe of how something so beautiful could come virtually out of thin air. How she could suddenly be in the world, and make it infinitely brighter. A shooting star, glowing, even in a lackluster hospital room. The physical embodiment of love, in the form of tiny fingers and chubby, rosy cheeks.
That feeling continued when I met the little miracles that were to come after Ella. Next up was Sailor, then Adeline (the cutie in the photo above), and of course, sweet Beatrix. I didn’t expect to feel as moved as I did when I became an aunt, but it’s been something that has enriched my life in ways I couldn’t’ve imagined.
A baby coming into the world is such a special event. One to celebrate, and one to share. Which brings me to an amazing site I just discovered, Basic Invite. They have a range of fantastic announcement options, from wedding invitations, to business cards, stationary, and so much more. They’re changing the game, with some awesome features that allow users to customize their products like never before. Let me break it down:
They offer a huge variety of colors to choose from.
The ability to order a sample of your invitation before committing to the purchase, making sure you love it!
They have a myriad of beautiful envelopes for the perfect match, every time.
Their innovative site has tools designed to make ordinarily tedious tasks, like getting people’s mailing addresses, simple and easy.
And on the topic of babies, they have some seriously adorable templates to choose from. Whether you have a more neutral aesthetic or you love all the frills, there’s sure to be a design that will capture your baby shower invitation to a tee. They also offer lovely baby shower cards, if those are more your style, as well as specific design templates for a gender reveal baby shower! (Who doesn’t love a good gender reveal party?)
So if you have any announcement needs in the near future, I’d highly recommend Basic Invite. And guess what, readers? Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code “15FF51”, so there’s no better time to try it then now! Give them a try, I think you’ll love what you see.
