Say hi to Sean! Sean joined the SOHO team in 2014 and began setting up chairs and installing tents right away. He is from Fairhope, Al and loves to eat sushi. When he is not setting up wedding rentals he competes in mountain biking races with his competition team. 

We asked Sean to describe himself in one word and he said "Adventurous". His goal in life is to "Live the best life I can" and always displays Southern Hospitality by exuding  good, kind, and caring vibes.

Sean's said his favorite part of working at SOHO is "the people I work with everyday".  Having worked at SOHO Events and Rentals for 4 years, Sean installed all of our tents, chairs, and tables, but in the end his personal favorite is the wood dance floor or the black and white dance floor.

If you see Sean in the field - SAY HI!!

Pew Rentals

We have Pew Rentals!

Pew Rentals in Mobile Pensacola Fairhope

We are getting a little more caught up on our website additions and just realized that we had not added our beautiful church pews to the website - YEAH! This may not be that big of a secret, as a few of our clients have called to ask if we rent church pews. We store these beauties at our Fairhope warehouse, and have delivered them to Mobile, Pensacola, and they performed brilliantly at a Rock Creek wedding with Lydia Noble Events.

 

Why Renting for Events Makes Sense

As temperatures increase, so do the activities on your social calendar. From family reunions to graduations and weddings, warm weather means prime event season. If you’re throwing a party of any kind, you likely need a few supplies. But you don’t want to invest a lot of money in items you will only use once. So how do you host the party you envision without buying items you’ll just have to store and maintain later?

In order to hold the best party possible, price out what you need and make smart decisions about buying vs. renting. Renting is very popular because you can get the latest trends in events and rentals without the cost of buying or the storage hassles. Here are some things the pros consider to keep parties spectacular, yet low on cost:

Tip one: Organize with a list

Make a list of everything you need for the event. Come to one of our showrooms in Mobile or Fairhope to review all of your rental options with an event rental professional. Renting will save you time – you won’t have to visit several different stores to get what you need.

Tip two: Rent tables, chairs and tents

Tables, chairs, and tents, for example, are likely to be used only for your event and may not be needed again for years – maybe never. You can work with our rental coordinators to find everything you need and they can help you pick out the right amount/sizes based on your budget and the number of guests. Plus, we can handle delivery and setup – reducing your stress and eliminating the backache.

Tip three: Weigh your tableware options wisely

To make the most of your event and put your personal touch on it, renting table accessories, such as linens, plates, and glassware. Renting gives you access to items in the latest styles, trends and colors, making it simple to create the look you want for an unforgettable event. Plus, you won’t have 200 chairs to store when the party is over.

No matter what type of party you’re planning, renting some items can help you save time, avoid storage hassles and create the event you envision well within your budget. For more information you can CONTACT US!
