At Occasional Settings, we love to personalise every event. We understand that your baby shower, wedding, birthday, bridal shower, anniversary are all special and deserve to be a stress free day. When combined with fresh and innovative styling ideas, we bring a warm, fun and personal touch to your special occasion. 

The creative team at Occasional Settings is driven by our owners Louise and Sarah. We treat every event with importance and know how essential it is to get the details right.

What began as our personal collection of family memorabilia and some of our favourite found objects, our love for rustic, vintage and antique decor pieces quickly evolved into something more. For us, vintage is not just a trend or fad, it is our heritage and our legacy. 

Louise was involved in styling her daughter, Sarah's wedding, and this was the beginning, as the response from others who had seen pictures prompted us to grow our collection and include objects for other special occasions. We are now very excited to offer Victorians genuine rustic and vintage decor hire to add that touch of special to any event.

For all bookings a deposit of 30% of the total hire cost is required within 7 days of your quote to secure your hired items. Final payment is due 2 weeks prior to your event.

Delivery and Pickup

Occasional Settings do offer delivery and pickup; however, it may be difficult to guarantee during peak season. Therefore, DIY pickup from our location in Gordon is recommended. Most of our clients wish to come and collect their items directly as this reduces the cost significantly.

Delivery / Collection / Set-up / Pack-down can be arranged with Occasional Settings servicing the Ballarat, Geelong and surrounding areas. Delivery and set-up/pack-down of hired items will incur a freight and handling charge. This will be calculated at time of booking, based on event location and will be noted in your quote. 


Clients are responsible for any damages incurred to hired items. Any breakages or missing items will be charged for replacement, according to our terms and conditions.
