As you know, I love sharing cute things I find online. In particular, I’m a sucker for all things baby. My youngest just grew out of the baby stage, so I find myself constantly looking at the baby outfits at Target, reviewing my friends’ baby registries while reminiscing, and thinking about what it would be like to have a fourth.
While we aren’t quite ready for that, I am having fun helping a couple friends plan the arrivals of their little ones. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing a website made for expectant moms – it’s a website that carries all sort of adorable birth announcements, baby shower invites, and first birthday party invitations. Everything you need invite-wise for a new baby!
Adorable Birth Announcement Cards
Basic Invite has a nice selection of adorable birth announcement cards.
Here is one of my absolute favorites: the XOXO Tea Birth Announcement. There is nothing I don’t like about this super cute, modern birth announcement! I like the colors as shown, but what’s cool about this website is that you can actually customize the color combinations. If pink’s not your thing, you could do purples or greens. If you want a rainbow effect, you could do that, too!
Cute Birth Announcement – Colorful, Modern Template with Photos
I learned that announcements can come in several sizes:
- Tea Size (8.65″ x 3.75”)
- Traditional size (5” x 7”), square (5.75″ x 5.75″)
- Mini Fold (5.5″ x 4.25″ folded and 11″ x 4.25” when open)
- Mini Gate (5.5″ x 4.25″ folded and 11.75″ x 4.25″ when open)
Another one of my favorite birth announcements: Baby Squares
Pretty Baby Shower Invitations
Before the baby’s birth, you’ll need baby shower invitations. Here is my absolute fave:
Baby Wreath Shower Invitation
Unique First Birthday Invitations
Perhaps my favorite section of Basic Invite is its First Birthday Party collection.
I am in love with this unique first birthday party invite – it’s called the “Big One Collage” for good reason:
If you’re anything like every single mom I know under the sun, you have so many pictures of your baby, you should have no problem filling in this collage with photos!
Unique Birthday Party Invitation – First Birthday Photo Collage
And here’s a close second:
One Fun Year First Birthday Invitation
I like this one because it’s fresh, unique, and modern. I’ve never seen an invite like this. I just think it’s adorable. All you need is a single, excellent landscape photo of your little one to upload, and you’re all set!
Customizable Baby Announcements & Invites – Upload Your Own Photos
Of course, in any of the invitations or announcements that have photos in them, you upload your own photos. Grandparents, especially, love this touch. I keep my photo cards in an album as keepsakes, so this is my preferred way of designing cards.
You can technically upload your own card design and just have it printed by Basic Invite, but I don’t know why I would ever do that since they have such a nice selection of predesigned cards to choose from.
I found so many lovely designs on Basic Invite, it’s hard to choose my favorite. I think I’m leaning towards the chalkboard designs simply because they’re different than invitations I’ve used for my babies in the past. My girlfriend says the Baby Wreath Shower Invite design is her favorite.
Check them out – I’m sure you’ll be able to find a design you like!
