2021 is rapidly approaching and with it are new event trends! Our team at Southern Events is looking forward to getting creative to help you design memorable celebrations in the year ahead. Get inspired for your future events by looking at the 2021 trends, featuring our in-stock rentals.

Luxe But Sustainable

Luxe events aren’t going anywhere but we’re seeing an increased interest in sustainability. There are multiple ways to host a sustainable event via rentals. The first is reusable serving ware, including china, flatware, glassware, and linens. Rentals are an easy and beautiful way to reduce the waste produced by your event.

In terms of styling, expect lots of lush plants & greenery. Potted plants are especially beautiful and perfect for aisle decor and table centerpieces.  The same goes for dried plants, which lend lots of texture. Pampas grass in particular is trending, as it easily adds volume and height. Expect to see an increasing amount of dried flower bouquets and arrangements.

All Out Events

Go big or go home right? One 2021 trend is events that are memorable, not necessarily in size but in the details. Diva Boho-themed events are a great example. Think of bold & intricate geometric patterns, and voluminous flowers or other organic arrangements. Metallics are also here to stay, as they are a quick way to add some sparkle and shine to an event. At this type of event, you can tell that every thoughtful detail was well planned and executed.

A Focus on Sentimentality

People are gravitating towards heirlooms and the texture of various things that draw them to the past – we expect this event trend to only get bigger in 2021. Not necessarily a boho theme, but colors and textures that incite a sense of nostalgia. So sustainable handmade pieces lend texture, such as clay, jute, and wicker decor. This trend also applies to attire, in the form of heirloom jewelry, clothing, and accessories. For weddings, think dresses with intricate old-school embroidery in an ivory or cream color. One great example is celestial-inspired events, where texture and vintage or retro items are easy to incorporate into the design.
