Great Online Invitation Options with Basic Invite

 Well, it's happened. BABIES ARE HAPPENING FOLKS.

Hey now. Not for me yet ;) But lately it seems that all of my friends from high school and college have started having BABIES!!!!!! We are all in that 25, 26, 27 age range now and it seems like every other week I see one of my old friends on facebook posting a pregnancy announcement!

You know what they say...first comes love...then comes marriage...then comes a baby in a baby carriage...and then comes a whole lot of invitations for baby events. Oh what's that? That's not how you remember the rhyme going? Hah.  Seriously though! I'm just at the beginning of my friends having babies but already have received a multitude of baby party invitations and know that the time is coming soon where some of my close friends will have babies and I will be the one needing to send out these invitations too!

That's why I'm so glad I recently found out about the site Basic Invite: I can already tell that this site is going to be a LIFESAVER for anyone caught up in the baby boom like I am ;) Now, I know there are tons of sites to find invite online, so what makes Basic Invite different?

 First off: they have almost unlimited colors. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. I don't know of any other site that does that to this same extent.  Details are so important especially when it comes to discount baby shower invitations: you can pick whatever colors you want on the card to match exactly with the colors for the shower!

Triple Creme Brie, Sunflower Honey and Nectarine Crostinis

Making crostinis might be one of my most favorite things to make ever.  I love serving them when entertaining especially: I feel like guests just love how easy it is to pick up these snacky little creations and the flavor combinations are just endless!


I had an impromptu BBQ planned for over labor day weekend and decided it would be fun to plan a tasty little crostini to serve at the party.  I am loving eating up all the juicy peaches and nectarines that are hanging around at the end of summer so I thought a crostini with a sweet slice of nectarine on top would hit the spot perfectly.  


Paired with some creamy brie cheese, a drizzle of sunflower honey, and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary, these little bites make such a refreshing and DELICIOUS appetizer!
