Raquel’s Baby Shower Brunch & Card Designs
September 13, 2019 in Uncategorized | no comments

Earlier this week our team took some time out of our work week for a ‘Baby Shower Brunch’ for Raquel at Tiny Boxwoods. She is expecting a baby boy early this October. It was a fun way for our team to celebrate her new bundle of joy before she goes on maternity leave.

With her due date approaching, Raquel has been searching for inspiration for her baby announcements. In her search, she stumbled upon a company, Basic Invite, that has a fun mix of cards for nearly every occasion, including creative birth announcements, vintage birthday invitations and more. In today’s blog we have included some of her picks and some of the cards we just thought were too cute not share.

Handwritten Name Birth Announcement

Under swirling calligraphy, your bundle of joy is the star of this darling card. You have many custom options, including card shape. Here is an example of what this option looks like.

Chic Hello Birth Announcement

Simple and neat, this ‘chic’ card option is a clean and modern option for newborn announcements. Among all of the color choices, you can choose from four card shapes and five paper options, including a matte or shimmer option.

Over the Moon Birth Announcements

The Over the Moon announcement is too cute! The hand-painted night sky and font is a darling way to introduce and announce your newborn with friends and loved ones.

Basic Invite has nearly every color option that you can instantly preview online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card so that you can make sure it reads exactly how you want it to, down to the littlest detail. You can also pick from over 40 colors for the envelope. Design is in the details so this is feature we of course love! You can also order a printed sample of the actual invitation so that you can see the paper quality and colors before you place your final order.

Beyond birth announcements, you can find cards for nearly every occasion, including birthdays. We have included a couple of the designs that stand-out to us.  We love this blush option with foil gold letters. It is perfect for milestone birthdays!

We also found this option perfectly appropriate for Austin, the Live Music Capital.
