Happy New Year!

Hello and Happy New Year from Relish! We certainly hope you all enjoyed this holiday season with your families and loved ones!

While we enjoyed our short time off (as always, this is the busiest time of year for us!) - we were very excited to get back to work so that we could launch 2009 with a bang! We have now launched our 2009 iBuilder which comes with lots of new, fun Relishy stuff! We of course updated our main papers to new patterns and to include this years hottest colors. We also added paper options for the top layer so that your creativity in color combos is expanded. We didn't stop there though - we also made sure to give you more embellishment options: you now have 14 Stone options (instead of 6) as well as 4 new ribbon options! Even more exciting is the new capability to upgrade to color envelopes for your invites! We now offer 15 color envelope choices as well as 8 metallic envelope choices. Then as a finishing touch, we have upgraded our seals to give you 14 options for seals (which are included with your package)! We are so every excited to have improved our look and feel of the iBuilder itself as well as being able to extend even more options and creativity to our customers!

In addition to the iBuilder, we are adding in our new line of Save-the-Dates, Bridal Shower Invitations, bachelorette party invitations, etc. We also have an iWed Exclusive Line of invites coming out this month - they're a little more fancy and unique, but they are pre-built - so it depends on your stationery personality!

We are looking forward to Weddings, the Bridal Show which is the biggest bridal show in the Nashville area every year - it's happening in just 2 days! We will be posting lots of photos from the show next week. We love meeting all the newly engaged in person. Maybe we will see you at the show, or if not - check back to see the photos!

It's a very exciting time with all the shows and the newly engaged. We even have a friend that proposed to his girlfriend last night: it was so sweet - he had fireworks and after they were over, everyone had sparklers and lined up in a circle. He brought her to the middle and proposed - very cool! And she said yes - so good year for him! :) (Congrats Tim & Julie!)

We feel so very inspired coming in to this new year. For me personally, I cannot get enough of Fuschia! The weird thing is that I seem to be able to combine it with any color! I have always donned purple as my favorite color, but Fuschia is a new take on that - so rich and yet so trendy. Depending on what you pair it with - you can create a classy or a funky look. As I said - I am loving it! :) I also love lots of bold color in simple patterns. I love lots of contrast right now - something like our new Aloha, which has a solid bold color behind it with a simple flower on it in the corner. I also love the contrast of a bright solid on another bright solid. Overall, I am feeling very bold and spunky this year and am excited to see how that translates into new designs! (stay tuned...) :)
