Project Description

 

Staple + Layer is a tabletop design and vintage dish rental company based in Northeast Ohio. Owner and founder Britney Devaris has been given an opportunity of a lifetime to expand her vintage based company by adding a large and beautifully curated collection to her inventory. 

 

Hi! I'm Britney!

With a love for vintage and cherished memories around our dinner table, I was inspired to start my company, Staple + Layer. Once a vintage restoration and resale business, I had decided to change it's direction into a service based business that offers vintage rentals to those looking to host dinner parties in their home and to brides looking to set a perfect table for their guests. The idea behind my business is to take take these timeless treasures and layer them with modern trends to create inspiring tablescapes. It also gives me the opportunity to not only help create everlasting memories, but be a sustainable business owner. Our eco-friendly efforts go beyond our rental services. We wash all of our inventory using environmentally responsible soaps that are naturally derived and biodegradable. We also polish our tarnished flatware through a non-toxic and natural method rather than using harsh chemicals or silver polish.

One of my favorite memories from our wedding day was sitting at a long farmhouse table with our best of friends. We had rented vintage dishes, glassware and silverware. The table was set with white + gold bone china, crystal clear goblets and gold flatware. Each place setting was personalized for the guest it was reserved for. I used to daydream about the dishes that were at our setting that day, those breathtaking Limoges from France.

More than two years later, the owner of the very company we rented our dishes from was looking to sell her entire collection to a single buyer. To some it was no surprise that I made the decision to buy out the company of my dreams and move the inventory across the country. From California to Northeast Ohio, I am so excited to add this cherished collection to the inventory I already own, so that I can share the same unforgettable experience we had on our wedding day!

I have personally invested 75% of the costs of buying this dream collection. With your help, I won't only be able to pay off the remaining balance of this inventory but will also be able to cover the cost of moving it safely from California to Ohio! From one woman in business to another, I am excited to continue the vision that the previous owner of this collection had. The experience she gave us on our wedding day not only inspired me to start my own vintage dish rental company but also motivates me to be a trusted & desired vendor in the event industry!

 

What your contribution will be used for:

  • Paying off the remaining purchase cost of this collection.

  • Buying all packing materials, industrial glass racks and dish crates in order to safely store inventory during travel.

  • Covering the transportation costs of moving this collection from Southern California to Northeast Ohio.

 

About this collection

This collection consists of over 4,000 pieces. Each dish is authentic bone china from the late 1800's through the 1950's. Makers include Limoges, Bavarian and Noritake. There are 140 sets of each the gold + white, floral and blue + white. A set consists of a bread plate, salad plate and dinner plate. The silver plated flatware dates back to the mid 1800's as the gold flatware is all electroplated from the 1950's and prior. There is over 1,200 pieces of glassware consisting of clear depression glass and crystal as well as colored goblets that will add a beautiful hue to any setting. There is a large assortment of serveware ranging from covered serving dishes and platters to cake stands and sugar bowls. There is over 150 teacups & saucers and teapots perfect for any tea party! And lastly there is a beautiful collection of brass candlesticks that will add an ambiance to every table they encounter.

The magic is in the detail!

Think of a moment that made you smile, inspired you or warmed your heart…

Were you in good company? Was there great conversation? Maybe you were among family or your best friends. Now think about the atmosphere. Were you inside or outside? Maybe there was a nice spring breeze blowing below the shining sun, or perhaps you were inside where music and laughter playfully bounced down the halls.

Let’s dive in even deeper.

Was there an aroma that you can remember? Maybe it was the smell of grandma’s lasagna coming from the oven to the table.  Or maybe it was an assortment of eucalyptus and florals that filled the air with their sweet perfume. If you were sitting down at a table, do you remember how your place setting made you feel? Was it personalized, inviting or inspiring? Did it make you feel like you were in the right place at that moment in time?

That’s exactly what we do over here at Staple + Layer! We make sure that every guest feels like they are in the right place the moment they arrive! We love the way those cherished moments make us feel and it is our mission to create mindful experiences and treasured memories for everyone we work with!

 

You're Invited!

Imagine an enchanting evening in an even more beautiful setting. There will be long farmhouse tables that glow from the flickering wicks of candlelight. Fine china and crystal glassware will border the perimeter as your setting patiently awaits your arrivial. You will be in good company as dinner music plays sofly in the background. The menu will speak for itself as it is prepared by a local chef or few.

You will recieve a mailed invitation and a place setting at our table set personally for you. There will be a cocktail hour where you will sip on pre-dinner drinks and nosh on some handheld appetizers. Once the dinner bell rings, you will take your seat at our table where you can expect a first and main coarse (we will reach out closer to the event to confront any dietary restrictions you may have.) The evening will be concluded with a sweets table that is sure to put you overboard as it will be stocked with my very favorite things! There will be photographers there to capture the moment so that you can be fully present in the evening. All guests will have access to our gallery and permission to download, share and post. Keep in mind, no great party is complete without a parting favor and a souvinier from the evening…wink wink!

Note: Date and Location TBA. If you are unable to attend this event your ticket price will be converted into a credit towards any Staple + Layer service.

 

Thank you!

I appreciate every moment spent reviewing my campaign and interest in backing my efforts to expand my current business so that I can add a few more settings to the table. For more information about Staple + Layer, please feel free to visit us at stapleandlayer.com.
