We love weddings at the historic Carnton Plantation, where the grounds are full of rich Southern history and luxe manicured gardens. With outdoor and indoor facilities in Franklin, TN that can host up to 500 people, it makes for dreamy and grand Tennessee weddings! The splendor of the lush arches covered in greenery was the perfect setting for this styled shoot with Weddings by Raina & John Myers Photography.
Rentals with metallic details and natural wood set the scene to be a magnificent combination of elegant and organic luxe. Chiffon Table Runners in soft blush draped on the Franklin Fruitwood Bar, and signature cocktails were elevated when served in our Hob Knob Glassware and Pure Glassware Champagne Flute.
For dinner, our most-loved Harlin Dining Chairs stunned, especially when seated alongside our Farm Tables. Gold Metal Spheres added modern lines while our Dove Gray Chiffon Table Runner kept the design romantic and lush. Darcy Bone China Charger Plates and Stone Earthen China Dinner Plates were topped with our Blair Gold Accent Plates for a decidedly chic place setting. The tablescape was completed with striking Pure Glassware, gold Austin Flatware, and the new Satin Russet Dinner Napkins in a delightful color that completed this garden fairytale.

Elegant Chiffon Runners add a new element of texture to your upcoming tablescapes. The sheer, smooth fabric adds a romantic touch and looks especially stunning when paired with a farm table or the Fruitwood Bar. We have also had clients used this as part of wedding ceremony backdrops, intertwined with flowers and greenery garlands. Available in blush, dove gray or ivory, the muted colors coordinate nicely with any color palettes.
Cecilia Floral Matte Satin
Feeling bold? The Cecilia Floral Matte Satin fabric adds a bold romantic pattern in muted colors, creating effortless elegance for your cocktail hour or main event.

We love this at any occasion, whether a romantic garden wedding or a grand gala!

Cheval Gold Mirrored Table in Large and Small
A side table that glistens adds depth to an event’s style. The Cheval Gold Mirrored Table comes in two sizes (large and small) has striking lines in a metallic finish, ideal for a modern design. Gold adds a bit of romance, making it perfect to accompany a blush or all white color palette. We can’t wait to see how you’ll design it!

Our Echo Silver Mirrored Table in large and small is just as stunning as the Cheval, only in silver metallic. The chrome finish lends itself well to any modern seating areas and is welcomed by guests as a place to rest their drinks while mingling with others.

An inspirational dance floor really elevates the entire look of an event – when the design is coordinated from top to literally bottom, it stands out in a marvelous way! The new Floral Printed Dance Floor features oversize prints in various corners of the dance floor. Peonies in a barely-there pink are featured, allows the elegance to carry over from dinner to dancing. We loved it at the Heritage Ball 2017 as an entry into the main space – the striking and romantic design had guests swooning!

Real Nashville Weddings, Southern Events Products
Ellen and Mason had a magnificent Southern wedding at the Carnton Plantation, with outdoor luxe design at a historical venue in Franklin, TN. Dozens of tables and chairs were set up for this extravagant affair, featuring vintage details and outdoor everything! The main feature? Our brand new Harlin Dining Chairs – and we’re in love! They gave this wedding a rustic chic look – more upscale than the Crossback Chair, but less formal than the Chiavari Chair.
Our Vintage Tasker Writing Desk welcomed the couple’s family and friends to the rustic affair, where guests were able to write their well wishes to the ceremony. For the cocktail hour, guests were able to grab a drink at our Antique White Franklin Bar, with signature drinks served sweetly in our Hob Knob Glassware – a favorite! While some mixed and mingled around our traditional cocktail tables, others were able to lounge on our Sutton Furniture Collection in Sand – the perfect addition to this gorgeous outdoor space.
Dinner was served on Gold Ophelia China with Abby Flatare while sitting at traditional round tables or our Farm Tables. It was truly the most elegant rustic event we ever did see!
Many thanks to Allison Lewis Photography for the capturing the day and all these gorgeous details!

Events and Style Shoots
This styled shoot at the Carnton Plantation married sleek modern neutrals and mixed metals with heirloom china and soft lighting for a dramatically romantic design. Starting with the 8ft Grayson Farm Table, we added formal Black Chiavari Chairs and Mercer White Leather Couches for a timeless black-tie blueprint. Mixed metals of copper, gold, and rose gold throughout the tablescape brought this neutral palette to life. Our Rogue Shimmer Charger was the base for the place setting, topped with our Alabaster & Stone Earthen China and Black Pindot Napkins. To complete the look and add a bit of vintage romance, our Heirloom China Bread and Butter Plate added the perfect finishing touch.
The bold centerpiece bouquet by Lauren Marie Atkinson and rose gold stationery from Designs in Paper mixed with the unique brass geo terrarium holders kept this styled shoot from feeling too buttoned-up while adding to the mixed metals theme. We love this chic romantic look for a gala, elopement, or dinner party. It was all captured beautifully by the talented Jenna Henderson.

We are always so excited to be a part of A Very Marry Occasion, where Nashville’s top wedding vendors come together for a truly stunning style showcase. The theme was Organic Luxe and CJ’s Off the Square was the perfect venue – the outdoor garden space lends itself perfectly to being both organic and luxe with ease! Here’s how we made it all happen:
Cross-back Chairs in natural wood were paired with the Grayson Farm Tables for a stunning dining design. To add more luxe, our Hob Nob Glassware collection was on full display with both the water goblet and the wine glass giving a vintage vibe without being too whimsical. All this combined with our Abby Fine Silver flatware and a gorgeous Mediterranean Satin Linen made for a stunning styled tablescape, only to be enhanced even more by the stunning floral centerpieces by Enchanted Florist – swoon!
To mix up the seating arrangements, our 65″ Round Farm Table was incorporated into the floor plan, opposite of the sweetheart table. Speaking of the sweetheart table, a mini White-Wash Farm Table was used with our Tessa Tufted Loveseat – the perfect way for a bride and groom to enjoy their first married meal together. Our feminine Darcy Bone China next to the Hob Knob glassware and Gatsby Champagne Coupe were the perfect touches to the tablescape, adding more elegance to an already luxe design.
In the garden area, we incorporated the Farm Style Bistro Tables for easy but stylish mingling. We love when couples opt to keep the decor all in the family – the various farm style tables are beautiful together, yet purposefully unique enough to not look too uniform.
Also in the garden, we made sure to provide comfortable outdoor seating by bringing in our Sutton Furniture Collection. The Mediterranean color was the perfect way to tie in those blue linens on the dining table, keeping every part of the decor and theme beautifully cohesive. The Enchanted Florist helped elevate our rentals again by placing thoughtful low arrangements on the furniture, bringing out the colors of the gorgeous garden and the Organic Luxe theme itself.
Thank you so much to Phindy Studios for the photos! It was a very marry occasion, indeed.
Thank you to all the vendors involved! We love working with each one of you. Wolfe Gourmet Cakes, CJ’s Off the Square, Enchanted Florist, McConnell Hospitality Group, Phindy Studios Photography, and Premier Entertainment Company.

Baby, it’s frigid outside but this is one trend we see heating up! Centered around muted colors, masculine angles, and minimal flourishes, this Nordic-inspired trend comes from a stripping of home decor to only the carefully curated basics. Add a few cozy throws and a roaring fire and you’re set! We suggest mixing the Eiffel White Arm Chair with a Farm Table adorned with strong gold accents like the Gold Metal Intersect Cube. Then pair these rentals with the Earthen China Collection – our Stone dinner plate and Alabaster salad plate work perfectly alongside their matching Mug and Bread & Butter Plate. Add our Heritage Gray Napkin to achieve this Winter Minimalism style for your next event! We love this look for corporate mixers, simple luncheons, rehearsal dinners and winter weddings.

This summer style shoot at CJ’s Off the Square featured gorgeous tablescapes, arranged by their talented interns. We contributed several of our best rentals so they could show off their design skills, and we’re so pleased with the results! Ali’s use of our Round Fruitwood Farm Table was a highlight. Our standard Fruitwood Farm Tables are a popular choice; the round style features the same gorgeous fruitwood finish, but the different shape gives this tablescape a fresh look.
Haley’s woodland tablescape was another lovely design, featuring our standard Fruitwood Farm Table and Crossback Chairs. Both Haley and Ali used our Artisan China and Madison Glassware, so it’s interesting to see how the same products can work with two completely different aesthetics, whether your style is upscale and elegant or rustic and woodsy.
Love these designs? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help you create the perfect farm tablescape with our distinct rentals.
