Frequently Asked

Have a question about our products or services? Click on any of the frequently asked questions below to learn more about our policies and options.
How do I know what size table to get?
Your table size will depend on a few things. First, determine the look you’re going for - do you want square, rectangular, or round tables? Then, you’ll need to determine the size of your space and how many tables you can fit (take a look at our handy tent seating & size capacity chart or call one of our talented team members).
Finally, use our table/seating diagram to see the table that will work best for your event.
Can I pick up my own rental order?
Of course! Please see our information on Delivery & Pickup on the Policies & Guidelines area.
Can I place an order online?
Although we'd like to confirm your order over the phone or in person, you can browse our inventory, select your needed items and place your request for a quote through our 'Build a Quote' website. Once you place your request, an Illusions team member will contact you to verify everything is correct and finalize the quote.
How do I know which office to call?
Any of our offices can help you with questions and orders. We can easily direct you to the appropriate person. We service events all throughout Texas, not just the areas where we have physical locations.
Does every office have the same equipment and rental selection?
Our offices work together to provide every customer the same inventory selection.
How do I know what to order for my event?
Contact us! Our team has decades of experience in the rental industry and we can help you figure out all the needed items and the equipment that will work best for your event. You can also take a look at our resources to find examples of guidelines for your event needs.
How far in advance should I place my order?
We suggest placing your order as far in advance as possible so you are guaranteed the equipment you really want. You can place an order as close to your event as you wish and we will work with you to determine what equipment is available and appropriate for your event.
Do you deliver?
Of course! Please see our Delivery & Pickup under our Policies and Guidelines area.
What if I want a very specific piece of décor?
We can custom make it! We have a woodworking shop, a floral company and incredible designers. Contact us and we will help you create your vision.
Can I just rent a couple of linens from you?
Of course!

Delivery & Pickup


Special containers are provided for your china, silver, glassware, etc., to ensure that you receive your items sterilized, undamaged, sparkling and “table ready.” Our delivery personnel are instructed to deliver to a garage, dock or door readily accessible to our trucks.  * Additional charges may apply if we must carry a long way, etc.


All china, silver, utensils, etc., should be rinsed food free and repacked in the same containers as delivered. Linen should be dry and free of refuse to prevent staining and mildew. Tables and chairs should be stacked in the same manner and place in which they were delivered. All items should be assembled in a single location as specified above. Items not meeting these conditions are subject to additional fees.
