Trendy Vendy- Dishie Rentals

For this week’s Trendy Vendy, we have the pleasure of featuring Sheena of Dishie Rentals! An NYC native who found her “heart & home in the south,” Sheena joined Dishie in 2012 but truth be told Dishie Rentals is more than a business, it’s a passion! A passion for authentic celebrations, community, and creativity. Her mission is to “encourage celebrations of life through gathering at tables beautifully curated with pieces reflective of the unique heart and character of each party host.”

Since 2012, Dishie has worked with several local vendors and has been published in numerous publications! It’s not hard to see why! Her personal story is reflected in the pieces she offers to clients, so you know you’re getting a little piece of “heart & home” in your tablescape. Read more about Sheena & Dishie Rentals, below! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got your start!

Hoarding beautiful tableware is in my blood! I always remember staring at (and wanting to play with) my mom’s pretty china. I built my own collection of vintage thrifted china as an adult, but our newlywed home was too small to fit all of our gifted wedding tableware, so I donated my collection to appease my new hubby. When a friend from college shared she was looking for a new owner for her company, Dishie Rentals, a dream bloomed in my heart. We met and it was the perfect fit! And I got my collection back ten-fold!

My husband and I are passionate about building an intimate community through consistently sharing meals with others, and I believe every good celebration starts at the table! Dishie is my outward expression of my deep gratitude for every day we are given. It’s my joy to create beautiful tablescapes to help others authentically celebrate all of life’s special moments.

 


What services do you offer?


Dishie Rentals has a large collection of curated boho, southern, and vintage tableware available to rent for any wedding or special event. Our collection includes large quantities of vintage glassware in every color, mismatched vintage china, tea cups & settings, chargers, and modern and vintage flatware collections.

We provide delivery and washing, and also offer complimentary tablescape design and set-up services for all of our rentals. This fall we are launching Dishie Shoppe, a curated collection of Dishie faves that you can purchase and have in your very own home! My clients always ask if my inventory can go home with them so creating the Shoppe seemed like a good fit. We’re excited!


What can we find at Dishie Rentals?

Tableware Heaven! We have a capacity to serve up to 500 people with our collection of mismatched vintage china & glassware – whether you are a boho bride or Southern belle we have something for your heart’s desire!


What inspired the pieces you selected for Dishie Rentals?

Heritage & Heart. My husband once made me a special dinner and set the table using my favorite tableware, decorated it with my favorite flowers, lit my favorite candle, and served me my favorite food. Everything was perfect, the table was so pretty, and I just felt so special – I want every one of our dinner guests to feel like that. I want them to feel like out of the hundreds of people these vintage plates have served, they are the most special one.


How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?

Dishie is all about mixing and matching, and I love adding modern, trendy pieces like flatware or chargers to our vintage collection. Our luxe rose gold flatware has beautiful modern lines and looks gorgeous next to our china.


What sets you apart from others?

My team at Dishie believes that every celebration is really just a display of gratitude towards your attendees for the special place they hold in your life. We love engaging with brides and party hosts of all budgets to uniquely help them create tables reflective of their heart and character.


What advice would you give couples during the wedding design/planning process?

I love the quote, “The heart of hospitality is when people leave your home feeling better about themselves, not better about you.”

Remember that your wedding is really the first dinner party that you and your husband get to host together! Look at your budget and decide what the most important pieces will be to help you celebrate with your guests and thank them for sharing with you in such a special moment of your lives, and then spend your money and time on that.


What’s your favorite Dishie product?

Oh my stars, don’t ask me to choose! I LOVE our vintage champagne coupe collection. I just feel like a girl at one of Jay Gatsby’s parties when I drink out of one! I am also obsessed with our luxe flatware collection. It’s so sleek and the flatware is such a nice, heavy weight.


When you’re not helping clients, what can we find you doing?

Honestly, most likely tracking Hot Wheels tire marks into my sofa alongside my toddler, or dragging said toddler and my hubby throughout Disney! #boymom #disneyfanatic


Fun Facts About You:

I have a degree in Classical Humanities (Ancient Art, Culture & Philosophy) and Nonprofit Management. On the DL, I’m working to create a give back component to my business at Dishie and couldn’t be more excited about it.

 

I live in Winter Garden and am pretty obsessed. I just love my little town and I think everyone else should too!

 

I am also obsessed with our springer-cocker spaniel mix name Lady (yes, like the movie). She mostly chases bubbles and butterflies, sleeps in the sun, and snuggles with our family – she is my spirit animal.

 

I saw a quote on social media recently that said “Every pizza can be a personal pizza if you just believe in yourself” and I think I’m going to make it my new mantra for life.

It’s wedding season! But first, coffee.

 

We are so excited for the upcoming Fall season, and to kick things off we’re serving up some color inspiration as Pantone just released their Fall 2017 trending tones. To say we’re inspired is an understatement! In Florida, we have one season/ one temperature {HOT} so we have to give some *snaps* to Pantone for getting us in the Autumn spirit. So, does this mean we can start decorating for Halloween now? (Asking for a friend).

A Tale As Old As Time

Be Our Guest!

 

Okay be honest with us, how many photos is too many photos? We were so inspired by this “Tale As Old As Time” styled-shoot we couldn’t help but share a ton of images. We have a feeling though, that you won’t mind! “There’s no wonder that her name means beauty” with photos like these. We can’t get over how the rich colors play well with the industrial background. Our hearts are all a flutter. Major kudos go out to the entire vendor team for making this happen. It’s true what they say- it takes a village {in a poor, provincial town} 😉

Stephanie & Andrew • Bramble Tree Estate

An outdoor celebration of Winter romance!

 

Stephanie & Andrew’s wedding left us stunned, amazed, and teary-eyed! It was everything a winter wedding should be- warm, cozy, and full of love. They chose hues of red, & green to create their dream wedding at the gorgeous Bramble Tree Estate in Sorrento, FL. This venue comes proudly equipped with a wide-open outdoor space, perfect for a tent! Stephanie & Andrew were drawn to our Sailcloth tent to host their reception, and equipped it with our market lighting while Florida served up a beautiful sunset! The photos from their wedding speak for themselves as they’re the work of Rudy & Marta Photography! They perfectly captured everything, down to the smallest detail. The mastermind behind the beautiful styling & event design was our good friend, Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design

 

Here are a few photos from their big day!

Trendy Vendy- Weddings by Carly Ane’s Floral Studio

Our Trendy Vendy for this week is none other than our good friends over at Carly Ane’s Floral Studio! They’re a family owned business committed to serving every customer with the highest quality florals & gifts with the best price possible. Their staff is incredibly talented with creativity off the charts as evidenced in the many weddings, & style-shoots they’ve worked on! When you work with Carly Ane’s you know you’re going to get quality customer service, and quality products.

Whether you need flowers delivered around the world or just around the corner, we’re here to help. Our experienced professional floral consultants are always happy to help you select the perfect floral expression. Simply let us know your list of special occasions you wish to be reminded of and we won’t let you forget them.

 

 

 

 

How did you get your start?

“Dave’s father started the business in 1982- naming the shop for his daughter, Carly Ane. Helping at the studio ever since he was in high school was only natural for Dave to learn and grow with the company. This year he’s taken on Weddings by Carly Ane’s as his own adding Jaimz as Design Consultant and Marketing.

She started in the event industry planning and organizing cast parties and celebrations while working in the area’s theme parks. After some time working in the coordinating and cakes part of weddings she landed in floral and design- and loves every minute of it!”

 

 

What services do you offer?

“We offer full wedding floral design and some décor rental such as arches, shepherd hooks, vases, candles. Etc. Within out 5,000 sq.. ft warehouse our clients are sure to find what will best meet their design needs.”

 

 

What inspires your floral designs?

“The clients! A couple’s personality and sense of style should come through in their floral and décor. We want them to express themselves the best way possible for their big day. We like to listen to what our brides and grooms want the overall look and feel of their wedding day to be, not what someone tells them they must have.”

 

 

How do you keep up with the latest wedding trends?

“Keep an eye on the internet! Fashion and seasonal colors play a lot into floral palettes. Also, pay attention to the past- popular trends have a way of coming back around full circle.”

 

 

What sets you apart from others?

“We care- a lot- about our clients and the success of their events. Anyone can sell you flowers and make arrangements but it’s the connection and interaction with a vendor who has your best interest at heart that makes the difference. We don’t have one-time customers. We have families who planned their weddings with us in the 80’s and now the children of those couples are coming in to plan their own celebrations. Birthdays, new babies, anniversaries, weddings- they stay with us through all of life’s occasions… and we’re here for their calls!”

 

 

What advice would you give Brides during the design/planning process?

“Take your time and get a full vision together of what you want. Do you research and don’t fall in love with something if it’s not realistic within your budget. Trust your professionals and ask their advice on what options you have to make the most out of your day. And when it comes down to it- have fun!! Stressing about every little detail is the surest way for you to look back and wish you had just let go.”

 

 

Fun Facts about you:

  1. Both Dave and Jaimz are big fans of the Dallas Cowboys!
  1. Dave enjoys Formula One racing, golf, and Jelly Bellys.
  1. Jaimz has blue hair (currently), loads of tattoos, performs improv and burlesque in the area, and- yes- is a girl!
  1. Our warehouse space is large enough to hold parties and events- and we did just that recently with our first open house!

 

 

 

See their work in action!

Stephanie & Ben • Lake Mary Events Center

A Glam Wedding for Stephanie & Ben!

 

2-576

We had the pleasure of providing the rentals for Stephanie and Ben’s wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center! Stephanie is an industry favorite of ours and is the owner/ co-founder of the planning company Saving the Day Events. Her wedding not only incorporated her love of glam, but also some of her friendors in the wedding industry. Together, the vendor line-up hit it out of park and created the wedding of Stephanie + Ben’s dreams!

Pictures are worth a thousand words as they say, and the photos courtesy of Harmony Lynn Photography are telling us that this wedding was AMAZING and so much more! Stephanie & Ben are the cutest, their love is sweet & genuine and it shines through even the smallest details. After always working hard for her clients on their special days, Stephanie got to sit back and enjoy her special day with Ben and let her friends save the day.

 

Take a look!
