Christmas In July

"It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens
Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens
Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees" - Run D.M.C

Anyone else mom called them yesterday to discuss Christmas? (Raises hand) MINE DID. My mom is that person that starts talking about and planning for the holidays in January. I like to tease her about how Christmas obsessed she is but the truth be told I love Christmas just as much. It is hands down my favorite holiday. While we have tons of candid family photos from Christmas pass we do not have official Christmas card photos. You know those ones you send out to family and friends every year showcasing your family holiday spirit? I always said I wanted to be that kind of mom that sends out Christmas cards every year but per usual I wait last minute get overwhelmed and never get it down. Well, not this year. Thanks to Basic Invite we will be well prepared. I absolutely love their custom holiday cards.  

While browsing through their site I couldn't help but check out their baby shower invitations. NO, we aren't expecting but I swear just about everyone I know is, it's been a hot summer. Their collection has something for everyone, from fun co-ed shower invite ideas to the oh so popular bohemian vibes. 

There are a few reasons Basic Invites caught my attention:

1. Basic Invite is one of the only websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. After picking the design you like best you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. This allows you to be able to create exactly what you want. I mean that's the point of customizing right?

2. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that lets you order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.

3. Basic Invite offers you an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any of your social media platforms to request your friends and family’s addresses.  Their addresses will then be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. All recipient address printing is free on all Christmas card orders.

4. Basic Invite's foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. You can choose flat or raised foil on all foil designs.

                       Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
