Rule number one when throwing a holiday party : your invites matter.
Yes, seriously. The party invitation sets the vibe for the entire party.
I know this can be easily overlooked but, lemme tell ya, if your invite is boring... people will probably assume that the party will be.
You should make invitations that let everyone capture the true mood of your party : are we being festive, flirty, bougie, professional or playful?? YOU decide the vibe of your party so create a perfect holiday invite to express that.
I created my own "Holiday Soiree" invitations. The gold foil finish with pink and white undertone totally captured my classy / feminine theme with a hint of flirty.
Your invite should get the theme of your party across immediately and make your guests feel excited to start planning their outfits : )
I recommend creating your own original invitations with Basic Invite - they really let you put your own spin on things.
Basic Invite let's you send invitations that are ANYTHING but basic.
Take a look at just their holiday cards : they have 65 different styles of cards that are all customizable to suit YOUR vibe.
Feeling flirty? There's a mistletoe card for that. Feeling festive? Let your words create a Christmas tree. Feeling fun? Use bright colors or encourage your guests to "jingle & mingle". If you can think of it, you can create it.
Why I like Basic Invite :
COLORS - You can immediately preview your designs and change the color of every element on the card. They have over 180 color options so you can make the design exactly how you want- down to the very last detail. They also have over 40 different envelop colors. This helps to make your invite stand out before it's even opened. Plus, they are peel and seal envelopes, because who wants to actually lick invitations??
SAMPLES - After you make your invite exactly how you want it, you can order a printed sample. This way you can see exactly how it will print, the paper quality and overall look.
EASY TO SEND - Basic Invite has an address capturing service that allows you to share a link on your Facebook page or any form of social media to request friends & family's addresses; which are stored in your customer account and can be selected during the design process. Also, their recipient address printing is free on all Christmas card orders, which makes SO much less work for you.
PRETTY FOIL - Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Umm yes please, I'm obsessed with how the gold foil looks.
DESIGNS - I already mentioned how they have 65 different styles of holiday party invites, but they also have over 250 Christmas card and holiday card designs.
DISCOUNT - I love a good deal : you can get 30% off all their holiday cards with code HOLI30.
