the upholstery collection

One of our favorite collections here at Sparkles and Vintage is our upholstery collection. These are the pieces who define SAV, show you our sense of style and they each have their very own name. Whether they belonged to the old woman who never sat on them, just to admire them from afar, to the family heirloom that just took up too much space in the garage… All of our pieces have a story, and when they travel to your event, they become apart of your story! We will travel near and far to rent out these lovely pieces, because they really are the "babies" of Sparkles and Vintage.

Currently we have (4) arm chairs, (1) settee, and (2) ever so gorgeous sofas…Let's meet them shall we?


When will we be gathering new pieces? We are always gathering new inventory. The more events we have, the more inventory we purchase. 

If you want to the insider's scoop, and want to see our pieces as we purchase them: 
follow us on instagram @sparklesandvintage. If we buy, we post! It's almost as if you are there shopping with us! How fun right?! 

If there is something you are looking for, just ask! I'm sure with enough time, we will be able to find the perfect piece for your event! And who knows, we may just even name him or her after you!

love, lace & lampshades

Today's wedding was all about love, lace, & lampshades!

A vintage inspired wedding in sunny Mission Viejo, Ca! For Leslie & Jose, we design a custom lampshade installation for their ceremony/reception. All the lampshades pictured were recovered & redecorated in all cream hughes by yours truly! It was a super fun project decorating, and sparkling them, but especially gathering all of the lampshades of different shapes & styles over the past few weeks! Vintage decor will always have a special place in my heart, so I don't mind searching high and low for beautiful pieces!

This was our first ceremony backdrop installation we've ever done and quite frankly, I have to say this is my favorite design of 2013!

With a wedding of 130 guests, we designed, styled, placed, cleaned and recovered the items at the end of the night. In between the ceremony and the reception we relocated the lampshade installation to the reception space to behind the main feasting table for romantic and illuminated ambiance. So so happy with the way this design turned out for this lovely couple! It was a beautiful day and a stunning evening, and a wonderful way to close out our final wedding & event of 2013! Please enjoy!

elf on a shelf



If there is one thing that I knew that I wanted to get myself for christmas this year, it was an elf on a shelf… and then I found out that they made a girl one too!! OMG I will totally have a couple!!! Browsing the shelves today to my surprise, they had two different colors of each gender and well, to make it politically correct for my little family, I had to find the perfect pair!

Say hello to Dottie & Bernie the elf on the shelfs of SAV!!!




Okay so... Dottie really needed some clothes… so I handmade a skirt out of vintage lace, adorned her ears with swarovski rhinestone earrings and added a few embellishments to her scarf. I mean come on… she had to be a fashion forward sparkles and vintage diva fresh out of the box! She was ready for her close up!




And even though Christmas was yesterday, and the holiday season is on its way out… I am still so excited to know that I now have them! I cannot wait to dress them up & put them in different vignettes during Christmas 2014!

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday and are starting to get ready for The New Year!!

SAV is making some changes for the new year...

so please check back often to hear our lovely news!
