One of our favorite Linen Specialists Tina Smyth, who enjoys the outdoors & the waterways, wrote the following blog about how we at U.S. Tent Rental and Linens by the Sea get geared back up for season. Tina knows best about how to enjoy the off-season, as well as how important it is for us to be ready for your upcoming events!
About this time every year, is when our “season” in Florida starts to slow down a bit. It’s also a great time of the year for us to recap and get ready for the next season to start again!
Since most of our events have come and gone, everyone is taking vacation and trying to relax with their families. We at U.S. Tent Rental and Linens by the Sea stay busy by learning and researching the new trends that are getting ready to hit the market, attending networking events and revisiting old and new clients in our industry. We update all of our linen swatchbooks and equipment catalogs, clean up all rental accessories, tents, china, glassware and flatware, and my personal favorite, INVENTORY THE WHOLE WAREHOUSE. We do this now so that when the phones start ringing off the hook in the fall, we are ready to go with our best items ready for our clients’ events.

We have our annual linen sale coming up next week July 11th to the 15th with our Super Saturday Sale being held at our offices on July 16th. We will be selling items that weren’t industry standard in size, or the colors have changed. A few came in to get items to use for holiday décor, using some items to make into tree skirts, and runners for their holiday village sets.
Summer months are also good for our team to play with new and colorful fabrics that we have gotten in over the past months but have been too busy to play with. As you can see in the photo below of our showroom, we like to play around with items to find the best underlay and napkin pairing we can create. Call our new toll-free number 800-588-8235 for a showroom appointment and you can see the newest items of the 2016 season!
