This weekend we celebrated our 5th annual friendsgiving with some of my closest friends- a night full of great food, drinks and conversation. A few of us have participated every year from the beginning but the group has definitely grown over the years (13 of us this year)! This was our second time hosting at our house (see last year’s post here) so I thought I would be a little “extra” and send a little snail mail with an invite from Basic Invite! Ps.

I was recently introduced to Basic Invite and was intrigued by their fully customizable paper goods. Whether you’re sending out creative Thanksgiving dinner invitations or festive holiday cards, their site offers endless options to create one of a kind stationery. While most other companies have a few color schemes to choose from, you can’t really alter the font, sizes or layout of your card. Basic Invite provides a truly custom experience so you can get exactly what you want with just a few clicks- this made my creative heart so happy! You can pick from tons of different font colors, font styles, and place your text anywhere on the card. I chose one of the thanksgiving invitation templates and then designed our invite to complement the colors of our fall tablescape. It was so easy and I love how they turned out!
Basic Invite also has an option where you can order a printed sample of your card so you can see exactly what it will look like and feel the paper quality before placing your final order. I also love the selection of envelopes, they come in over 40 different colors and there are so many color and pattern options for the liners too.

This year was my first time making a turkey and I was a little nervous but there actually wasn’t much to the prep and it turned out great! We also had ham and a ton of amazing sides and everyone left stuffed. Of course I enjoy the wonderful spread of food but one of the best things about the holiday season is dressing up the table! For this year’s tablescape I got an orange printed runner and centerpiece candle holder to start. I’ve had these on my table since October but for this dinner I incorporated some fresh greenery and burgundy blooms into a garland. I got all of this from Trader Joe’s for about $10 and mixed in a few votives and the table was set! I hope y’all have a wonderful turkey day and thanks for reading!
