Gia and Nate get hitched at the Grand Island Mansion!

Gia and Nate had their wedding at the Grand Island Mansion.  The colors they chose were a mix of soft delicate pinks and grey.  Peonies, as we all know, are the “it” flower of the season and this wedding was no exception to the rule.  With over 300 pink peonies, the couple did not miss a single detail.  The head table was decorated with collections of vintage milk glass and a single blossom here and there.  A banner reading bride and groom adorned the front of the head table.  There were definitely some new ideas at this wedding.  The altar arrangements were our favorite new idea.  Rather than a mix of seasonal flowers, Gia chose a full clean ball of carnations!  Above, hung a crystal chandelier and pink petals sprinkled down the aisle to give color.  We loved this look and we hope you all do too!  Let us know what you think.

Little Things: Jackie’s Flowers is now renting more props!

Hi All!

So we just made another trip to the Sac Antique Fair and picked up some new gems.  What a better way to share them with you then to have a little fun with them… We decided to shoot a few of the items alone and then add some little tid bits to dress them up, and hopefully, to INSPIRE all you brides out there on the hunt for new ideas!  We usually have some of our own brides in mind while shopping (this helps us from going overboard!)  Our upcoming brides, Amanda, Michelle, and Kristie all have very different personal styles, but as funny as it is, we think all their props look nice together as well.  Here are some photos of what we like and ideas for displays you may find to fit your own personal style.  Call today to schedule an appointment for rentals at (916) 685.9233!

One of the most seen things on blogs these days, would be the wooden crate! There are so many different ideas that can come from an old crate. We have seen everything from storage of napkins and utensils, to rose petals, to stacking, or even a cake plate!
Also, you may use these as shelves for photos of loved ones or other bits of sentimental goodies and place it near the entrance to your event, or even on a guestbook signing table. Another great idea would be for a dessert table.
Here we thought of our upcoming bride Amanda. Her look is a very playful feel full of yellows, succulents, and rustic accents. We love the fun playful colors in the Dr. Seuss books!

We love the color here! Fill this with flowers for a soft and happy look.

One of our new favorite trinkets….the mini mailbox! Another silly purchase, this could be placed on the sign in table or gift table. Place a sign next to it telling your guests to write a sweet little message that may be placed inside.

Anyone who has ever been to our shop knows that we can supply rentals for literally any idea you may have! Check out some shots of our large collection of vessels.

Silver trays galore!
Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth is one thing…renting them for your wedding is another!
Milk glass!

We just couldn’t pass up these vintage pez dispensers!

Make an appointment to stop by and check out our collection of vintage pillars! 916.685.9233
For our woodland brides…birch wrapped vases. Stick your bridesmaids bouquets in them for instant color on your head table! Or line the walkways with them and twinkling candles for a romantic touch.
Real wood slabs for cake plates are awesome for an outdoor or indoor event.

We can’t wait to suspend this over a head table and hang some sort of vine on it, maybe even hanging candles for light.

Seashells and Surprises

Hi Everyone!

Okay so for this little mini shoot we used a ton of interesting ingredients.  Seashells are something that we love and never get to work with.  So we changed that…a ton of seashells and paper flowers were used in this look.  Inspired by our own daydreams of a seaside fourth of July Holiday…east coast and upstate…fresh crab, white picket fences in the sand…these were some of the ideas that came to mind with this look.  We wanted it to be easy and not too thought out.  But more of a fresh sea look, we even stuck some succulents in the mix for good measure!  Enjoy and have a marvelous weekend.
