Every cliche you’ve ever heard abut having children comes true when you have your own. They grow so fast! I just don’t know where the time goes! It’s like she was born yesterday! And the case is painfully true with me each and every time a birthday rolls around. Evelyn, my youngest, turned four last month and it just somehow doesn’t seem possible. Four sounds so big. So much like a true kid rather than a toddler or baby. When I look at her, I still see gummy grins and sweet baby coos, but she’s beyond that now and much prefers running and jumping along with her big brothers.
Our family celebrates milestones and birthdays in a big way. My children choose a theme and I take on that theme like it’s a sworn oath. Evelyn chose kitties and kitties she had, right down to the plates. When it came time for the invitation, I wanted to hang onto that cliche of freezing time for just a little longer and created a classic invitation that doubled as a keepsake for friends and relatives. Basic Invite offered an unlimited variety of color options and styles, which allowed me to create an invitation around one of my most favorite recent photos of Miss Evelyn, drawing on the blues, red, and golds from the cardigan she wore.
I was able to see an instant online preview before placing my order and even customized the inside color of the envelopes. And I was able to rest easy knowing they use only the highest quality cardstock. The invitations arrived quickly and the printing was true to color and vibrant. Sweet Evelyn’s face was crisp and clear, right down to the sparkle in her eyes, making the invitation serve as the keepsake I was hoping for.
While my littlest baby is growing faster than any parenting cliche, I’ll be able to hold on to this invitation for years to come. Even when she’s much too cool for me to make her birthday party invitations and has moved on from running with her brothers to playing with makeup.
