For next week’s workshop, we’re lucky enough to have three sponsors graciously providing their services: gorgeous, silk ribbon from tono + co., pretty tabletop candles from Creative Candles, and trendy furnishings & accessories from local rental company Folklore! We couldn’t be more excited to feature these three fabulous companies and have their products be a part of the day. So let’s get excited and learn a bit more about each of them!
tono & co. is the passion of Janelle Nicole Wylie, owner of the floral company Lavenders Flowers. Working closely with brides for almost a decade, color became the natural center of Janelle’s work leading her to the tradition of hand-dying fabrics. tono & co. finds its inspiration in the first-hand knowledge Janelle gained while studying painting & color theory in Florence, Italy. In Italian, tono refers to the gradual increase in color tone, creating a fluid color spectrum. Through the learning process of mixing oil paint, Janelle developed a sensitivity to color tone. Her passions for combining color and texture have evolved into the art of hand-dyed textiles. (Images by Sposto Photograpy)
Folklore is the result of best friends Taylor & Maggie’s combined passion for furniture & design, here’s a little about how it all began:
What’s Folklore you ask? Well technically it goes something like this:
“Traditional stories and legends attached to a particular people, place, or object passed down from generation to generation.”
We look for pieces that have a past and tell a story. Pieces that aren’t afraid to show where they’ve been and what they’ve been through.
It all started with one upholstered chair and after that we began furiously buying amazing pieces of furniture, accessories, and so on without looking back. Slowly but surely we decided we would rent them for weddings, baby showers, and other events. Our collection grew fast, so fast in fact it spilled out from the garage into our hallways, living room, bedroom, kitchen until we built a structure on Maggie’s property. Only we had grown out of that by the day it was finished being built. In June 2014 we moved Folklore to our first warehouse and after two years we needed to upgrade again! Now we have a warehouse and office in San Marcos where we work alongside our talented team of employees.
For more than 50 years the artisans at Creative Candles have been hand-dipping and hand-pouring candles in Kansas City, Missouri. A unique proprietary blend of high-quality waxes is used to create beautiful one-of-a-kind candles and our craftsmen add their personal touch to give every candle a rich, matte finish. The result is truly something special – an exceptional smokeless, dripless candle with a slow and even burn.
As a small family-owned business our focus is always on relationships. Creative Candles’ service and sales representatives, clients and vendors are extensions of our family and those relationships are of the utmost importance to us.
