Our Story

As one might suspect, the idea for Simply Borrowed was developed from being involved in the planning process of weddings where the decorating was all DIY. We are a mother-daughter team who enjoy planning and designing celebrations; whether it is finding the ideal piece that fits perfectly into a desired aesthetic or providing awe-inspiring ideas for a special occasion. We know from personal experience that it takes a lot of time, money, and effort to find and purchase all your speciality decor to make your event stunning and then you have to find where to store everything afterwards - that's where Simply Borrowed comes in! 

Our goal is to provide vintage, unique, and style worthy rental decor so you can have your dream celebration. We aim to be a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to achieve your desired design aesthetic. We are delighted to help create your breathtaking experience that you will simply love.
