Watching your kids pass their major life milestones is one of the most wonderful parts of parenthood. From the day they are born to the day they get married and start a family of their own, you get to watch your kids do some amazing things. From rites of passage, like baptism and bar and bat mitzvahs to graduation, your kids have celebrated some pretty wonderful events.
One of the best ways to commemorate important events in your child’s life is by taking pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words, and pictures of your child are worth even more. Be sure to take lots of pictures of your child throughout their event that you can treasure forever.
Another way to mark a milestone in your child’s life is by having them write about it. If your child is old enough, have them write in a journal or notebook how they feel before the event. Ask them to write about their feelings going into it. Then have them write about how they feel afterwards. Were they nervous or scared? Excited? Maybe they felt several things all at once. Even if your child is young and can’t or won’t write in very much detail, having them write about their milestone event will be something they can look back on when they are older.
A third way to mark an important event is through stationery. You will most likely be sending out invitations before the event and thank you cards afterwards to let loved ones know what your kids are up to. You can keep a couple of the invitations for yourself and your child to put in a scrapbook or book of remembrance.
One good website to go to for stationery is Basic Invite. They have tons of designs for invites to every event. From birthday cards to thank you cards, from bar mitzvah invitations to baptism invitations, they have the card you are looking for. I really like their graduation invitations, like their graduation party invitations templates and their graduation photo invitations.
One of the best things about Basic Invite is that you can change the colors and font on their designs. You can make your invite match your child’s style perfectly. Or, you can have your child edit the design themselves, exactly as they want it. Many of Basic Invite’s designs also have foil options, and you can choose between gold, rose gold, and silver foil.
Basic Invite has colorful envelopes as well, so your invites will stand out before your guests even open them. With over 40 different colors to choose from, you can match your invite to your envelope exactly.
They also have custom samples. As you design your card on their site, the image of your card updates automatically. However, if you want to see your design in person before you make your final order, you can order some samples of your design off their site. You can make sure you love everything about your invites before you send them to all your friends and family.
You can use their free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get free envelope printing. Sending out your invitations has never been easier.
I hope you are able to honor your child’s life milestones by taking pictures, having them journal, and getting some stationery. And I hope your child is as proud of themselves as you are of them.
