“What’s in that building?” A common query along Highway 41 as locals notice The Palatine Building, an architectural monument that houses Fresno’s “best kept secret,” a family business comprised of RSVP Style, Gianni Fine Jewelers and Stems Floral.
With a firm footprint on the first floor of “that building,” RSVP Style is celebrating its 15th year in business! Sister duo Stephanie Bedrosian and Gina Jelladian embarked on their first business with the encouraging entrepreneurial spirit of their mother, Sonya Jelladian-Gage, in 2004. RSVP began as a simple concept of inviting in style. Over the years, their concept has tremendously evolved beyond inviting to gifting, celebrating, living and decorating in what they call, “RSVP Style.”
RSVP Style has been redefining social printing for 15 years!
When RSVP opened, they featured imprintable invitations for all celebrations with an emphasis on weddings. Over the years, customizing everything became the new normal and an innovative standard of creativity ensued! RSVP began customizing invitations suited specifically to clients’ occasions. Pairings of textured papers, specialty press (like letterpress and embossing) alongside the use of unexpected materials like wood, acrylic + fabric developed a new “couture” category that is unmatched in the Central Valley and beyond.
Whether you are planning a corporate event, an intimate celebration or an extravagant wedding, the party begins with the delivery of a fabulous invitation!
Stems Floral and Events
RSVP added the department of floral and events in 2010 to further establish their style of celebrating. Mary Papaleo joined their creative team, and with her collaboration, they design, plan and implement events that deliver much more than a celebration — they are truly an experience.
Stems does beautiful floral arrangements, available for daily fresh delivery. You can conveniently call, visit or click to order for delivery anytime!
Gift + Home
RSVP has created what they call “A Boutique Department Store.” Curated specialty collections fill each department with varieties of gourmet gift baskets, dinnerware, home accessories, art + sculptures, furniture, bedding + bath, fragrance, loungewear, baby + kids. There really isn’t any product mix or shopping experience like this in the Central Valley.
Gianni Fine Jewelry
With the growth of RSVP Style in the retail space, their jewelry department, Gianni Fine Jewelers, represents the generational merging of their family jewelry company — a Central Valley treasure for 47 years. With the local recognition of “Best Jewelry Store,” Gianni Fine Jewelry collections feature exclusive designer lines from favorite destinations around the globe, with endless customizing capabilities. Gianni is known for timeless jewelry that is fashionable and can be worn everyday.
RSVP pairs their luxury products with personalized service. Their team of design professionals provides concierge gifting and styling services. From corporate gifting to bridal + gift registry (both in-store + online) and also interior styling — convenience is key at RSVP.
RSVP is kicking off its 15th birthday celebration with the Annual Christmas Soiree,
November 6th through November 9th from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily at The Palatine Building. They invite you to join them, shop their newest designer collections and allow them to help you make your holidays and everyday celebrating a little more special and memorable!
