Romantic Old-World Elegance | 2017 Heritage Ball
Southern Events was honored to be invited back to the Heritage Ball at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park in Franklin this September. The Heritage Ball plays a proud part in the preservation of historic Downtown Franklin, and is the longest-running annual event in local history! This year’s lavish ball featured several of our rentals, styled to add an ornate old-world elegance to this Southern tradition.
Most popular rentals, like the Cross-Back Chairs and our London Loveseats, were combined with brand new pieces like our Cecilia Floral Matte Satin Linens and Winstead Gray Tufted Bench for a romantic black-tie affair. Our large selection of furniture created several lounge areas designed to enhance conversation by producing pockets of comfortable seating throughout the venue.
Guests were teased of the romantic vision to come with a lounge featuring our Santorini Couch, Rose Pillows, black flooring with floral details and potted trees in the entry. Looking up, chandeliers with lush garland enhanced the old-world romantic affair. A variety of lounge areas were situated throughout the perimeters of the space, mixing comfortable couches, vintage chairs, and stylish loveseats with sleek and modern side tables for an ornate design. Guests were welcome to grab a drink at one of the many 8 ft Franklin Bars – each accented by a matching mini 4 ft bar topped with a lush centerpiece.
Guests dined in comfort in our artisan Harlin Dining Chairs, which we paired with our architecturally striking Cross-Back Chairs for added texture. Our new Cecilia Floral Matte Satin Linen and Blush Satin Linen draped gracefully amongst cocktail rounds, while Charcoal Dupioni Satin, Wisteria Matte Satin and Russet Satin Linens were used on dining tables for a uniquely elegant color palette. Attendees were treated to a stunning tablescape with modern elegance and lavish heirloom details thanks to our Austin Flatware, Darcy China, and Medallion Gold Glass Chargers, paired with our striking Pure Glassware. After dinner, guests danced the night away on our Plank Wood Dance Floor.
This stunning event was a dream to bring together, and the reality was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Many, many thanks to the Heritage Society, gala chair, event staff and all of those who came together to celebrate Franklin’s history and future! Special thanks to Phindy Studios for capturing this event so beautifully. We hope to see you all again next year!
