Greetings, y’all! Welcome to the brand new website for Festoon Rentals! We’re so excited to have you here.
Festoon first started as an in-house vintage rental company for our sweet little wedding venue in Georgetown, Texas, Dimebox Ballroom. Dimebox Ballroom is owned and operated by our family of four: Carol, TJ, Chase and Cheyne Maclaskey. We have always had a penchant for antiquing, thrifting, ‘junking’ and sourcing unique pieces. Lots of those pieces found their way into the decor of the venue space (we’re artists, we can’t help ourselves). We’ve learned that one of the things that endeared couples to our space is all of that vintage charm that enhanced the space and, ultimately, their wedding day. We’ve often found ourselves giving tours of the venue and laughing as we tell couples that we likely subconsciously started the venue as an outlet for our antiquing habit.
It wasn’t until the mother of one of our brides pulled Chase aside while packing up after her daughter’s wedding that the rental company idea sowed it’s seed. The couple had rented a bunch of vintage furniture and decor for their big day from a rental company in town and there were lots of pieces they wanted and weren’t able to source. She suggested we consider dipping a toe into the vintage rental business waters since we already had so many great pieces. And that’s just what we did. We started out with rentals exclusively for our venue clients, and the clients loved it! We soon discovered that the pieces we displayed at bridal shows and open houses were mesmerizing brides and grooms who were eager to obtain them for the venue they had already booked. We just had to share the love. So we are. And the rest, as they say, is history!
Take a look through our inventory and let us know if something strikes your fancy! All you have to do is choose your pieces – we’ll deliver and set them up for you on your big day so you have one less thing to stress about on such an important day. Also: we’re not exclusive to weddings. We rent for parties, showers, anniversaries, company events, holiday parties, photo shoots, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, workshops, birthdays, festivals, film productions, window displays, home/space staging and beyond. We’ve got a lot more inventory going up in the near future, so check back often and let us know if there’s something you’re looking for and not seeing!
