One of the most exciting milestones in our lives is graduation. Whether high school graduation or college graduation, graduating marks the first biggest step to becoming an adult and embracing our freedom. I remember my high school graduation like it was yesterday. With nearly 1500 students in my graduating class the service was a tad bit long, but the event was a rush. All of my family and friends showed up to celebrate me and attend the festivities my mother hosted after. Something I’ll never forget because it brought both sides of my family together for one special occasion. This year marks another special occasion as my twenty year reunion is approaching.
After completing high school and college my life was just beginning and those memories are something I will always look back on and cherish. Graduation was a chapter in my life I had dreamed about since I was a girl. Believe me when I tell you I wanted the responsibilies of a full-time job, house and the bills that came with it at eighteen years old. Anything to have a life of my own and feel accomplished. As those responsibilities became reality each passing year there was always something to celebrate. Graduation, first job, first home, first promotion, holiday’s, wedding’s and of course every birthday: Twenty-first, twenty-fifth, thirty…. and so on.
Everyone loves a fabulous soirée and excuse to party! And I love prepping for the perfect gathering and sharing the memories made. I might be a slight overachiever when it comes to event planning: Perfect venue, over the top decorations, large guest list, elaborate invitations. You name it I’m on it. But these are the tiny details people remember and save for years. Just last month I found a wedding invitation I saved from my best friends wedding eleven years ago! Because it was so cute. It was also inspiration for future designs I had.
Twenty years later I started my company and I am hosting a special gathering for my own friends. A business brunch for like-minded entrepreneurs. I knew this day would come and I would be celebrating events as special as my graduation and the events that lead me to this journey. When that day came I wanted it to be special so I searched for the perfect greeting cards.
I discovered Basic Invite online and found how easy it was to design business cards, thank you cards, and brunch invitations for my party. They had everything I needed. 180 different color options to custom design my greeting cards, custom samples, over 40 different envelope colors and a variety of foil options. I decided to move forward with my custom invitation samples and have business cards made also. Why stop at just greeting cards?! 🙂
