Vendor Spotlight: Feather + Oak Lifestyle Rentals


This week we got with Jennifer of {feather + oak} prop styling lifestyle rentals to tell us about her company & services that she offers Nashville brides. What made you go into the business of event rentals?

I love creating beautiful gatherings and part of doing so is setting the atmosphere that makes an event feel special. Details - such as a magnificent floral vessel that beautifully supports a floral artist's work or the simplicity of wood handled Civil War era flatware - set the tone for an event. I often refer to my inventory as lifestyle rentals because these details support making a gathering, big or small, memorable.

What type of rentals do you offer?

Clients come to me for focal points. Items that spotlight a ceremony such as rugs or 100+ brass candlesticks // dessert tables that feature rare, antique cake stands // unique floral vessels for welcome tables or other vignettes // background items such as trays in brass, silver, wood, copper, and bronze for detail captures with regards to bouquets, boutonnières, and paper suites.

Explain the process of working with a bride.

The question I ask every client, bride or not, is how do they want their event to feel? From there we take those descriptives and carefully hand select items that support their vision.

What are the different ways brides can use your products?

I love to dream new life for old things. One of my favorite details for the fall season is my collection of vintage thermoses. While most of them are in fine shape for their intended purpose, they also make adorable floral vessels; perfect for an autumn themed head table or for welcome and dessert vignettes. For winter gatherings we have a gorgeous antique sleigh carriage that is a spectacular statement piece filled with florals. And lastly our collection of carnival glass punch bowls make for a delightful drinks display. We like to pair them with simple clear glassware for a contemporary twist and let the punch bowls have all the attention.
