It’s finally here…today is the first day of spring! I am sure our northern customers are overjoyed at that statement today, as from what I understand, you’ve been buried in snow all winter long! We only saw one snow dusting here in NC this past winter, but any weather below 30 degrees is enough to chill me to to the bone! Bring on the warm spring weather!!
Spring offers so much promise, from fun activities with family and friends to a brand new wardrobe, flowers in the garden and enjoying the daylight hours long after work and school get out. Spring is one of my favorite times of year at Ibox, as we get to see all of the brand new product that will be on our website in the coming months. Our vendors and designers work extremely hard in the fall and winter months to follow trends in stationery, fashion and party planning to bring those trends to paper!
Noteworthy Collections has given us a sneak peek at some of their brand new wedding invitation designs that they’ll be releasing to us exclusively in the next few weeks, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! To be quite honest, I couldn’t keep it a secret any longer, so I thought we’d preview four of their brand new designs to you today, so that you can get an idea of what designs you’ll be seeing once the entire collection is released. Each wedding invitation is paired with a collage to give you some modern wedding inspiration.
Washi Tape Inspiration – I promise that I will do a blog on washi tape in the coming weeks, (if you have not yet heard of washi tape, you will soon be consumed by patterned tape like the rest of us). This fun photo wedding invitation is ultra modern and is perfect for a lime & turquiose wedding, (though it is available in several color schemes). Drawings of washi tape border your askew photo against a weaved charcoal background for a striking invitation that’s as modern and trendy as you are!
Romantic Floral Inspiration – Perfect for a formal, feminine and romantic wedding, this is one of my favorite floral invitations this spring. It features a classic large pink floral bloom on the right side of the card with a contemporary trellis patterned background for a modern twist. Within this collage, the dress this bride wears is simply gorgeous, and it ties in the floral cluster from the beautiful invitation.
Watercolor Ombre Inspiration – As any trendy girl knows, ombre is the IT thing this season. Fading colors from dark to light, or light to dark makes for a gorgeous range of a color palette, and you’ll see a variety of ombre designs in stationery this season. This is my favorite of our ombre collection, which features a vibrant orange fading background which was created with watercolor paints. You can easily pair it with an array of orange and yellow wedding decor, which is perfect for an upoming summer wedding.
Rustic Western Wedding Inspiration – There’s just something about a souther girl! One of the biggest trends we have seen over the past year is the incorporation of woodgrain into your stationery. It’s dark, eye-catching and perfectly southern. If cowboy boots are your go-to each day, this wedding theme is perfect for you! I love the fact that this bride wore cowboy boots underneath her dress, along with her maids. It’s the perfect setting for a barn reception.
The rest of the new Noteworthy Collections 2013 wedding collection should be live on our website within the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled! Hooray for spring and brand new designs to make your wedding perfect!!
