Blog Feature: Jane Productions
i'm pleased to welcome Nicole Garica, of Jane Productions. southern oregon is very lucky to have a floral designer like her...she always blows me away with her creativity, and love for what she does!!!!
We asked her a few questions about her growing business and passion - check it:
How did you get into the floral, design business? I was technically trained in 1992 as a florist. I left floral design fir several years. Then in 2007 my sister in southern Cali started doing weddings for close friends and family. When she needed help I would go down to help. She was so talented in design and realized it was her passion. In 2008 she left corporate America to follow her dream and quickly became a well known event designer. I started making regular trips to LA to freelance with her. I would work any where from a quick weekend trip to a five week stay. I quickly realized it is my passion as well. Creating is simply in our genes! I started Jane Productions with the hope of bringing a new fresh style to events and weddings in southern oregon.
What style do you specialize in -- modern, traditional, romantic, etc.?
I would say I specialize in bringing whatever my clients style is to life. My specialty is taking my clients style and thoughts to the next level and create unique design elements that reflect their style and personality.
Where do you search for inspiration
I draw inspiration from several sources. The main source is nature. Just walking down the street will bring great inspiration. Another Fun way to be inspired is to visit museums. And if course I am greatly inspired by the work I do in so cal.
What are the wedding trends your seeing in flowers this year and particularly liking?
One popular trend I like is mixing vintage and modern elements. I like the romantic and free flowing florals that accompany this look. I also like the eclectic use of vintage props such as old books and jars with florals.
How do you charge for your services -- a flat fee or per-item fee?
Because every design is unique so must prices. Price is based on type of flowers used, quantity and size, and intricacy of design.
Do your provide aisle runners, candles, candlesticks/holders, trellises, potted plants, etc.?
I have a vast inventory in which I draw from. My price includes the rentals of items needed to bring your look to reality. This allows my clients the convenience of not having to purchase items they will never use again and also helps keep costs down.
If these lovely brides, event planners, etc. WANT your amazing talents - tell us how?
