DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE MEN! THE JONES VICTORIAN ESTATE

HI!
Don't forget the men in the wedding planning!! He might say, "it's all up to you!" He might say, "you decide!" Or, he might say, "what's the bar?"

Whatever he says, look beyond that. In my experience, he is saying more than that. So, make sure you have his favorite drink. Make a basket for his men's room that includes candy bars and/or cookies! Go with him when he picks out his tux or suit!

Here at the Estate, I always include the Groom because he definitely has an opinion. It is probably the same or close to your tastes because he loves you so. Just include him.... does he like desserts? Remember that cake tasting is a blast!!

What is your dream? Don't forget him in the planning!

FAMILY PHOTOS AND A SPECIAL VIGNETTE FULL OF LIGHT! THE JONES VICTORIAN ESTATE

Hi!
This picture was taken early in the morning after we add the flowers to the decor. 
I am waiting for the photos of the parents to complete this vignette!

The French door seating is to the left and right of the display and is a perfect
spot to incorporate those that are not with us or add some fun with current pictures.

I'm waiting to see the photos from the photographers when it was all bright with candles!

What would you like to add to your wedding to make it yours?
Let me help you find that perfect vignette or accent that spells ...  Y  O  U~

Doors... They're Not Just for Opening!




 \Hi! I found an old door with a lovely window recently and it has now found a lovely home with all my wedding props! It's a wonderful accent and a lovely detail to add. The doors may be decorated with flowers, special sayings, family photos... there are any number of decoration ideas available. They can go anywhere but I particularly love them as the entrance to the ceremony site.
These are just  a few of the fun with doors!
"I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them." Elizabeth Taylor

We have beautiful French Doors for the assigned seating! No one will loose their cards!!!
In this picture, a special family photo display was added to the middle!

Welcome! An open door is the best welcome!


Is there a place for a door at your wedding? 



Doors and windows outside? Yes, they are a marvelous greeting and a beautiful way to invite your guests forward.






What's your dream? Let's have some fun....
Love,

Crystal Centerpieces... Are They Vintage Too? YES, YES, YES!

Hi!
Can a vintage theme also include crystal?
Absolutely!
Check out these crystal centerpieces that were created with our vintage crystal vessels!
OoOoOoOooo, I love them!



How about this double-decker crystal arrangement? ...


Even the bottom crystal was accented by flowers!!!

Here, the crystal ice tea doubled as a fantastic vessel for another centerpiece.


We mixed sizes and styles of crystal for a vintage vignette!



I love the combination of mixed crystal containers!



Here is an up close photo of the detail on the vases.

The flowers are gorgeous and really pop with the crystal. 

What is your dream?
Let's get talking and planning!
