It took the momentous occasion of her daughter’s wedding for Cheryl Janssen to discover her place in the wedding industry as a designer specializing in rental furniture and décor. Her eye for all things unique, eclectic, and stunning brings a one-of-a-kind service to the Harlingen community.
The current owner of Craig’s Furniture in Harlingen, Texas which her parents first opened 57 years ago, Cheryl holds a keen eye for detail and design, using her talent to bring one’s vision to life. After many years in the business, Cheryl knew she wanted to expand her talents to other fields outside of the store’s showroom. As fate would have it, her daughter Lauren was to be married, and in Fall 2019, the planning of the blessed day sparked an idea for Cheryl. Already owning numerous lovely furniture and décor pieces, as well as antique glassware and dishware, she knew she could offer the Rio Grande Valley a new experience in terms of designing your wedding décor. When Lauren told her mother she wanted a rustic wedding without the burlap and mason jars, Cheryl was only too happy to give her daughter exactly what she asked for. Months later, March 7th arrived for the wedding day, as well as Cheryl’s pseudo debut in the wedding industry. The Boerne, Texas wedding found beautiful and diverse details, from vintage books and brass candleholders to antlers and a navy and blush palette, Mrs. Janssen delivered for the perfect rustic and charming ambiance Lauren and her new husband, Jason–, envisioned for their special day.
Cheryl now proudly runs Creative Rental Solutions, a special event company based in Harlingen, which will give clients the creative space to design their wedding celebration with Cheryl, the fairy godmother of designs and décor they are looking for. As she listens to exactly what her client needs and wants, she is sure to bring together pieces that will turn their nuptials into a unique affair, different from other weddings that have come before. Cheryl also enjoys keeping up with the latest trends in both furniture and wedding décor throughout the nation and the world, hoping to give her clients the courage to bring something innovative to their concept. While Cheryl continues her debut as a wedding décor designer while offering her services throughout the Rio Grande Valley, she is getting Creative Rental Solutions’ showroom ready, for clients to find conveniently located inside the store that began it all, Craig’s Furniture.
