Daughter of company founders Mr. and Mrs. Phillip P. Mullins, Phyllis is the visionary behind Mullins Special Occasions. She began working with her brother Kevin in 1983, serving as bookkeeper when the party and equipment stores were both located together at 800 Holmes Avenue. Phyllis saw potential in the Party and Events industry and founded what is now known as Mullins Special Occasions.

Phyllis holds a Bachelor's in Business Administration from Faulkner University and also is a Certified Rental Manager (CRM), having been the first female to complete the curriculum at Appalachian State University. She is the wife of the late E. Philip Anderson and has 2 adult children and 14 grandchildren. Phil and Phyllis enjoyed riding motorcycles with the Christian Motorcyclist Associates, and Phyllis now spends quite a bit of time at her Tennessee farm or traveling with family.

Having grown up around the rental business, Philip shows no stress in making your event rentals go smooth. Philip joined the Mullins team in 1996, when he began as a part-time Delivery and Yard Assistant. He quickly found out that event rental was in his blood and joined the staff full-time later that year, advancing through the ranks to Operations Manager before purchasing a portion of the business in 2017. Philip enjoys all aspects of teh special events rental industry, and has specialized in corporate groundbreaking events lately.

Philip holds certifications from rental-specific programs such as Top-Tec Tent School, has earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Faulkner University, and has completed seminary coursework from Slidell Baptist Seminary.

Shirley Jones (1998)
Washroom Supervisor
meet the staff

If you've ever wondered who handles all the dirty dishes and linens returned from special events, look no further:  Ms. Shirley Jones is the woman for the job! Shirley began as a Delivery Driver in 1998, moved into the washrooms later that year, and now supervises the Linen and Dish Sanitation. She has read up on all the stain-fighting techniques and can remove almost any stain from our fabric inventory. Shirley oversees a crew of up to seven people during peak season and will make sure your linens and dishware are sanitized and ready to use when you receive them.

Shirley is a proud mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother who enjoys spending time fishing or bingo when not fighting stains at Mullins. Since she also serves as a backup for other departments, she has earned the nickname "Super-Shirley."

Deneen Calavitta (2005)
Dishware Prep
meet the staff

Deneen Calavitta joined Mullins Special Occasions in 2005 and was "thrown into the fire," as we sometimes say, during one of our busiest times of the year. Deneen works with a team of up to 3 people who keep your dishware in tip-top shape. Every individual piece of dishware passes through this department for inspection, sanitation, and maintenance as it is returned from your event.

Deneen is the mother of four sons and has two young grandchildren. When not ironing your tablecloths or playing Grandma, Deneen loves everything sunflowers and leopard print!

Melissa Williams (2018)
Linen Prep
meet the staff

Melissa Williams joined our team during the slower month of February, 2018, and immediately came to work "with her bells on."  She trained for one month on dishware, then moved to the presser with Mrs Shirley.   Melissa currently keeps all your linens clean, pressed, and spot-free! 

Always happy in the morning, Melissa loves hard work and does not mind getting her hands dirty.  Melissa is the proud mother of two sons and loves being a mom, as well as writing and painting.   Watch for an occasional creative display or centerpiece made by Mrs Melissa Williams!

We first met Dimitrik McCants in spring of 2015, when he worked with us through a local part-time agency.  Dimitrik proved himself loyal and willing to do anything, from setting tents to washing dishes to loading tables and chairs.  His dedication proved worthwhile when we brought him on board full-time as warehouse and delivery assistant in July of 2017.  

A proud veteran of the United States Army, Dimitrik served our nation in various capacities across the workd before returning to settle in Huntsville.  Dimitrik credits his current success to agencies such as the VA and First Stop, and enjoys travelling home to Mobile twice a year.
