About Us

Kate Ryan Linens was founded in 2011 by Kristin Rose with the support and fellow vision of her husband Dan Rose. A true family business, the name “Kate Ryan” derived from Dan and Kristin’s daughters name, Katelynn Ryanne. The company came to fruition through the family’s combined experience in several areas where this type of expertise and passion is needed to own and operate a successful event rental company. The business has grown and evolved over the past several years into our new name-Kate Ryan Event Rentals-reflecting the fact that we offer so much more now than just beautiful linen.

Kristin LOVES beautiful and unique fabrics & decor. Kristin’s degree is in Interior Design and while attending the International Academy of Design she was elected the student President for the American Society of Interior Designers. Prior to founding Kate Ryan Event Rentals she worked as the Visual Merchandise Manager and Buyer for several Ethan Allen Design Centers in the Tampa Bay area where she managed and designed over 30k sq ft of display space. This experience has become invaluable to forecasting trends, purchasing to meet our local demand and effectively managing a growing -design forward- inventory.

Kristin’s husband Dan is originally from the New England area and moved to Tampa to obtain his degree in Business Administration from the University of Tampa. Dan previously owned and operated a commercial laundry processing facility where he rented restaurant and hotel linen as well as a dry cleaning drop location. This experience gave him a vast knowledge of the linen rental and dry cleaning process.

Their previously mentioned daughter has been a part of the business from day one and although Katelynn left Tampa for a few years for college she graduated last in 2018 from Florida Gulf Coast University with her Bachelor Degree in Hospitality Management. Kate is a member of The Junior League of Tampa Bay and joined the company full time as the Director of Operations shortly after graduation. Kate Just married her college sweetheart in a beautiful wedding at the beginning of January 2021 and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Captain Taylor Walsh to the family!

Katelynn’s brothers -Dominick and Hayden- are the youngest members of the family business and although their schedules are busy with school, friends and hockey they already work with the business after school as excited junior rental sorters.

Our Reviews

Kate Ryan is seriously wonderful to work with! Their entire team from the owners, to office crew and delivery crew are all fabulous! I work for a venue with lots of load in challenges and their delivery team are professional and actually go out of their way to make sure our hotel guests are not bothered by them. I’ve had events recently where something wasn’t ordered by the client and they sent people back to their warehouse to bring additional items. This shows their true professionalism and how they are ready and willing to go above and beyond! They work so well with other vendors and they also make sure that the clients vision has come to life! I was onsite over 18 hours one day recently in May 2023 for an event with insane setup and the only person onsite longer than me that day was Katelyn! She’s amazing and so is the whole team!

Kate Ryan Event Rentals is the elite rental company in the Tampa Bay area. They are seasoned professionals who made our vision come to life with zero stress. They were fast to respond and so patient with all of our adjustments along the way too. Whatever rentals you need, Kate Ryan should be your go to without hesitation.

Kate Ryan Event Rentals has a fantastic inventory! They supplied us with beautiful, quality linens and dinnerware for our wedding in November of 2020. It was easy to get in touch with them via phone or email and communication was always pleasant. Our guest count changed several times due to COVID and I am so thankful for Kate Ryan Events' understanding and assistance with updating our invoice each time. We highly recommend Kate Ryan Event Rentals!

Recently worked with Kate Ryan rentals on a styled shoot and I couldn’t be happier! They were super accommodating and provided some absolutely beautiful rentals for the shoot. Great customer service and amazing selection of high end items. Highly recommend for anyone needing any rentals for their next event. Can’t wait to work with them again!

I've known Kate Ryan and team for 4 years now. They are the best of the best! They strive to have products that not every rental company has so that your event looks unique to you and gorgeous. Kristin has a background in design and is always so helpful putting a room together. When you hire KRE, you're not just getting a gorgeous product, but an awesome customer experience. They are always on time for deliveries, the quantities are accurate and they will steam linens to make sure everything is perfect for your special day. They are true team players, no 'I' in team...and help set up on the day...true PERFECTIONISTS!!! Definitely a vendor team I love working with because I know they give their all for every client. Give them a call, their warehouse has a design room that you can play in to see it all come together. You will NOT be disappointed.

Kate Ryan Event Rentals is the BEST! What a great wedding vendor! I was able to rent the most beautiful linens and classy chairs. They had everything we needed all within a reasonable price point. I received answers back quickly and they could not have been more pleasant to work with. Highly recommend using their services for your wedding!

Kate Ryan was so easy to work with! They had the most gorgeous linens and chargers for our wedding. We also got a great seating rental from them. Our entire "look" was tied to together thanks to Kate Ryan!

Love working with Kate Ryan Event Rentals. I have been using them for years, not only for our linen needs, but also various rentals (tables, chairs, flatware, glassware, plates, chargers, decor, etc.). Always professional; great quality; competitive pricing and a wide selection of inventory. Kristin's attention to detail and the time she spends with you to bring our clients vision to life, is like no other in the area. She's been my go to for many years and I will continue to use her and refer her whenever I get the opportunity. Thank you Kristin and Kaitlyn!!

Hiring Kristin and her team was one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding. From our initial conversation to the wedding day, Kristin went above and beyond to help us with our wedding planning. We rented all of our tables, chairs, linens, flatware, glassware and an etagere for our San Pellegrino station from Kate Ryan Rentals. Everything was in mint condition! Kristin and her team were reliable and professional. They genuinely cared about us as clients, and I can't say that about every vendor we hired. I highly recommend Kate Ryan Rentals!

Kristin is so talented and professional! We came to her with a couple of ideas for our wedding linens and she completely transformed our vision into reality at the wedding. We loved our linens and gold chiavari chairs - they completely elevated our wedding reception look. Kristin/Kate Ryan Linens is an incredible vendor who is so passionate and kind. Her selection of linens is outstanding. Definitely recommend her to all brides who are looking for high quality linens and rentals!
