Y’all, it’s been a rough year, and 2021 is not proving to be any easier than 2020 at this point. Just a week ago San Antonio was trying to survive a snow apocalypse, which seems insane now to think that was just 7 days ago. Amidst all the pain and suffering, I think we could all use some joy, and at least for me personally I find it to be one of the only ways I can cope. If I don’t think of what I can look forward to in the future, I simply can’t find a reason to keep going.

So what’s coming up in the next few months that can give us reasons to smile? Issa has her birthday in March, we have weddings coming up that were rescheduled from the past year, and of course graduations will be cause to celebrate in May! Online graduation announcements can oftentimes be dull and boring, but I recently discovered Basic Invite and got some ideas brewing for Issa’s Kindergarten graduation! Yes, it may seem silly to celebrate just graduating from Kinder, but she didn’t experience a preschool graduation last year since it was the beginning of the pandemic.

I mean how cute is that?! Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers to order a printed sample of their actual invitation before they place their final order. They can see the paper quality and how it will print, and make sure the card is perfect.

Basic Invite also has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from. With so many options, customers can make their envelope match the invitation. All of the envelopes are peel and seal so they can be closed quickly and securely. Their graduation announcement templates can also make it easy to design if you don’t have a knack for fonts and graphic elements.

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media to request their friends and family’s addresses. The addresses are stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

As we see vaccines rolling out, I’m also hopeful we can start celebrating in person sometime soon, so these graduation party invitation ideas are getting me excited for summer soirees. Or they could always be updated to drive through versions if that’s still our reality through 2021. Either way, we’ll find a way to celebrate!
