Southern Events had the best time helping the Nashville Cavaliers celebrate puppy love at their Valentine’s Day Party… aka the CALentine’s PAWty! We were pleased as punch to work with the wonderful Fete Nashville and Enchanted Florist, providing some of our sweetest rentals for the adorable affair.
White wash Farm Bistro Tables were on display and used to show delectable desserts for both canines and their humans. Our Hob Knob Glassware was a delightfully whimsical touch for the puppies’ people to sip and mingle, while darling dogs were treated to the yummiest treats! Our Children’s Farm Tables and Children’s Cross Back Chairs paired perfectly together and were just the right height for the sweet pups to enjoy a delicious snack. The fruitwood from the tables and natural wood from the chairs were a perfect accent and looked even more stunning with florals from Enchanted Florist. And because everyone loves a lounge area, the Cavaliers were treated to one as well with our Black & White Stripe Cabana Bench and the always gorgeous White Trellis Side Table.
So many cute pups, such little time! Thanks so much to Mandy Whitley Photography for these lovely photos.

Planning your big day can be an overwhelming endeavor, but designing your big day should be genuinely fun and exciting! The overall style of a big day should reflect the couple’s personalities and set the tone for a joyous occasion. No matter what design best encompasses you, adding character to your chosen wedding venue in Nashville or Franklin, TN is easily done with the right rentals.
Not sure exactly how to get started? The experts at Southern have put together different wedding styles to provide a little inspiration for your upcoming Middle Tennessee nuptials:
Wedding Style: Modern Chic
Modern Chic is a darling design that features sleek lines combined with bright colors and lots of texture. Neutral Grayson Farm Tables set the scene and a dressed to the nines with Gold Austin Flatware, Medallion Gold Chargers, and Black & White Triangle Plates. We love the acrylic Ghost Chairs on one side, and the Midas Gold Velour Bench on the other for a unique take on seated dinners.
Looking to add some vintage flair to a modern and chic event? Out Gatsby Champagne Coupes look perfect in any setting and bring the old-world glamour to any occasion.
Wedding Style: Garden Romantic
A sweetly romantic garden party is a wonderful and heartfelt way to exchange vows, with a soft color palette and plenty of vintage touches. Distressed Farm Tables in white wash with natural wood Cross Back Chairs or our Harlin Dining Chairs welcome guests into a secret garden, where dreamy rentals set the scene. Tables are adorned with ornate details like our Hob Knob Glassware and Abby Fine Silver Flatware next to satin dinner napkins, or placed perfectly among Chiffon Table Runners. Lounge areas aren’t left out, as our Tessa Tufted Linen Beige Loveseat with wooden legs adds natural subtle romance to any area.
Wedding Style: Textured Boho
Couples with a genuine love of nature and vibrant colors fall perfectly in love with this Textured Boho style – a gorgeous mix of organic elements topped with vintage & metallic details. Wood Chargers, Artisan China, unique Como Flatware, and gold flourishes stun in any setting – not to mention, they are accented perfectly regardless of your chosen color palette. Painted vintage furniture is perfectly Bohemian with bright and vibrant colors – the vividly colored Charlotte Chair and vintage Basil Arm Chair are just two selections from our vast inventory of delightful vintage chairs. Natural texture continues from dinner to dessert as a delicious cake is even more beautiful served atop Barnwood Square Cake Plateaus. Free spirits, happy hearts, and a bohemian design that never disappoints.

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.

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.

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!

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.
