Melinda Haines has been called a “serial entrepreneur” by those who know her well. Her parents say she got that spirit from her paternal grandmother who was always dreaming, starting and succeeding in businesses.
Melinda launched Modern Magnolia to help the modern bride represent her Southern roots with an eclectic alternative to standard china rental and accessory rental..
Modern Magnolia’s china is recycled antique, vintage and just plain beautiful, from well-known manufacturers of classic dinnerware. The collection includes over 200 dinner plates, which are meant to be mismatched for a “shabby chic”, “country chic” or “elegant chic” event. Also in the inventory are vintage-inspired accessories for the table, such as chalkboard signs, lanterns, garden stakes and candelabras. Modern Magnolia’s dishes and accessories may be used to complete an elegant table setting or to accent the “plain white” rental.
