In search of a secluded country atmosphere for your future wedding? Located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Saddle Woods Farm is a Southern old-style cedar wood barn situated on 25 beautiful acres. To help inspire you for your event, check out a variety of ways that you can dress up this stunning Tennessee wedding venue, featuring our modern & stylish rentals.
Modern & Minimalistic Neutrals
One of our favorite wedding trends is neutral wedding palettes, which lend a timeless look to any event! This style is easy to pull off at The Barn, full of warm woods and southern charm. For this tablescapes, we featured our Glass Charger with a Gold Rim, Alabaster China, Austin Gold Flatware, Colored Glassware & Pure Glassware. The simple but luxe centerpieces were made using voluminous arrangements of pampas grass and our sleek Davis Glass Cylinders. With their large vaulted ceiling, we can’t resist going big with decor!
Bright & Bold
If you’re a couple who wants a less traditional look, we say rock some bright and bold colors! The warm tones at Saddle Wood, provided by cedarwood and iron details, contrast beautifully with bright shades. The following boho-inspired table packs a fun punch of color via our Burnt Orange Poly Table Linen and gold metallic accents. For a chic statement lounge area, check out our Saylor Navy Velvet Chairs, paired with a set of elegant Rhodes Side Tables and trendy Gloria Velvet Ottoman. It’s the perfect mix of both bold and classic colors.
Dark, Moody & Chic
While Saddle Woods has more rustic elements, tt looks equally gorgeous when outfitted with our luxe black rentals. Although non-traditional, this color is sure to lend a moody yet chic vibe to your event and the space. Below is a luxe sweetheart table paired with our contemporary Acrylic Ghost Armchairs. Behind it, you’ll notice a small lounge made with our stylish Regent Black Velvet Sofa and Echo Silver Mirror Side Tables. For the dinner table check out our Glass Charger with a Silver Rim, Onyx & Stone China, Hammered Flatware. The Black Nova Linens and a dab of pink in the centerpiece add a small touch of whimsy.
Should you prefer a traditional wedding look, then you’ll love this romantic set up. With the cedar rafters decorated with string lights, greenery and blush drapery, the Barn looks absolutely magical. To complement it, we dressed the reception tables in a mix of both burgundy and blush linens surrounded by cozy social areas. These areas feature our cowhide rugs and Conga Gold Drum Side Table as well as Bennett Leather Sofa, Grey London Loveseat and Cheval Gold Side Tables.

Luxe Outdoor Lounges
Of course, you have to take advantage of the lush landscape, which is perfect for an outdoor lounge area. Depending on the season in which you host your event, why not host a cocktail hour outside? You can easily create a variety of stylish wedding lounges, whether you want a look that is more moody, modern or chic. The following layouts include a set of our Acrylic Ghost Armchairs, Nickel Grey Bench and Regent Black Velvet Sofas.
For these smaller areas, starring bistro and accent tables, seating is more minimal. See below our favorite White Eiffel Arm Chairs and Acrylic Casper Square Barstools! For additional texture, consider using our sequin table linens or etched velvet linens.

If you’re looking for a bright and chic look for your upcoming wedding, look no further! Earlier this year our team at Southern Events collaborated with other local vendors for a fresh and fun desert bloom themed style shoot at 14Tenn in Nashville, Tennessee. Enjoy the breathtaking image by Gray Kammera Photography as we show off some of our featured rentals!
For the intimate indoor reception, we opted to use our modern Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs. Meanwhile, our Davis Glass Cylinders with white pillar candles lined the aisle way, extending the airy look and creating a warm ambiance. Of course, the floral backdrop created by SS T Villager Designs stole the show! Their bright whimsical florals took this reception set up to another level, with lush greenery and bold colors.
Shifting to the reception, we featured more of our popular acrylic furniture. This time our Acrylic Carrigan Side Chair. A mix of contemporary and industrial/rustic furniture makes this set-up stylish yet inviting.
On the long dinner tables, we created place settings using our Coronado China, Athena China, Faux Wood Round Chargers, and Austin Flatware. Our Fuchsia Etched Velvet Napkins brought a POP of color that complimented the bright floral centerpieces. For drinks, we selected our classically elegant Cybil Glassware.
Also, note the beautiful calligraphy escort cards by Fanciful Ink!
When styling the bride and groom’s table, we always like a little extra drama. The bold florals dripped all the way to the floor where they met our Gold Metal Intersect Cube and Davis Glass Cylinders, for a warm and luxe look.
In addition to long dinner tables, we also used round tables. For these, we selected our stunning Fuchsia Etched Velvet Linens. A mix of our acrylic chairs were featured, for that popular mix and match vibe.
While the place setting were identical to those on the long dinner tables, we switched out the napkins. Our London Fog Etched Velvet Napkins provided a much-needed neutral contrast to the otherwise bold table. Our favorite element? The super cute potted plant wedding favors/place settings!
Lounge areas are a must-have for any wedding with a cocktail hour. This cozy lounge was created using our Nickel Grey Bench, Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa, and Acrylic Fantasma Side Chairs. Cheval Gold Miror Side Tables were decorated with lush plants for that chic desert vibe. Nearby, bistro tables were set up with our Ocean Blue Velvet Linens.

Mix & Match Furniture
Keep your event casual yet maintain a consistent aesthetic with a mix of furniture that complements one another. By using Barnwood Furniture of a variety of shapes, you can make the most of the space and also feature some statement pieces. Take for example our beautiful Fruitwood Farm Tables. In regards to chairs, we used a mix of rustic benches and our elegant Cross-back chairs. Although simple, it creates a foundation from which to add color!

Metallic Place Settings
An easy way to add warmth to a colorful backyard event is with gold or silver accents. Featuring our Gold Round Lacquer Charger and Austin Flatware, adds a touch of metallics that contrasts beautifully against turquoise centerpieces. It also complements the golden yellows and sunset-inspired oranges throughout the event design. Don’t forget to pull these accents into other parts of your events with gold-rimmed glasses on your bar or gold side tables in your lounge. This creates a more cohesive look.
When it comes to table centerpieces people often feel the need to use matching pieces. A colorful backyard party is a perfect time to experiment with creative shapes and colors. This tablescape features a mix of vases, in teal, white, gold and clear glass – easy for a DIY backyard party. For candles, we suggest varying heights to add some dimension (though you can also create this with taller arrangements). As far as flowers go, consider keeping it simple but bright with a variety of wildflowers. Orange & yellow tones perfectly contrasted and popped against the teal and white glassware!
Vibrant linens are so much fun! The use of bright colors will lend a sense of liveliness to your event, plus make your event photos pop. Don’t be afraid to use different linens for each table either! Note how we were careful to switch up the color of our table centerpieces depending on the linen color. As a general rule: place lighter colored centerpieces on dark tablecloths and vice versa. Our Fuschia Etched Velvet Linens with their gold veining would be a another way to bring in a subtle metallic accent and a bold pop of color.

A smaller wedding does not mean smaller style! To help inspire you, we’re sharing a handful of ways that you can pull off a small, yet elegant intimate wedding, featuring wedding design ideas from a recent styled shoot at the bright and airy boutique Noelle Hotel in Nashville.
Up Close and Personal
By far the most rewarding aspect of hosting an intimate wedding is that you can be truly yourself, as you will be most comfortable amongst the special few whom you invited. With less people around, your guests will also feel more connected to you, as they witness this milestone in your lives and share in your emotions. As shown with our Harlin Chairs, create a seating area that allows everyone to see, hear and be a part of the intimate ceremony.

Elegant Place Settings
When it comes to planning a small wedding, you can still make a statement! Take the elegant table setting we created, which includes our Gold Austin Flatware, Glass Mosaic China, Glass Charger with Gold Rim, and White Round China. It absolutely POPs on the rich Blue Velvet Linens! We were also careful in our choice of Cybil Glassware which, while slightly more whimsical, still fits into the overall aesthetic.
Make the Most of Your Venue
Often times, couples who host an intimate wedding will utilize the same space for both their ceremony and reception. This will save you the effort and cost of a secondary event space, and allow you to make the most of the venue you truly love. Take this into consideration when researching potential venues, as a large enough area can accommodate both the weddings ceremony seating and dinner tables. If everything can be set up from the get-go, there will be less hustle and bustle to rearrange furniture when it comes time to eat.
Splurge on Special Touches
One benefit of opting for a smaller-scale affair is that you will have the budget to splurge on items or elements that you love, like our comfy and downright beautiful Tabby Tufted Grey Linen Loveseat. These special touches can be an item that sparks joy for you or is simply more convenient. Take the opportunity to treat yourself and your loved ones to a special space.

Emerald and gold speaks to opulence and set the tone for the event design at the 13th Annual Rutherford Society Gala. A black-tie affair, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville in southeast Murfreesboro was transformed into an elegant affair. A mix of vibrant and deep greens, white furniture and golden accents made for a luxurious setting.
It is easy to take emerald and gold event design and end up over the top. With beautiful but simple pieces, a chic and functional space is possible. Alongside a pleasing aesthetic our aim is to eliminate any feelings of claustrophobia. It is a cocktail hour after all! Pieces like our Pearce Furniture, a chic modular lounge, and bistro tables will prompt guests towards social areas for a drink well throughout the evening.
The elegant layout and grandeur spilled over to the main ballroom for a 3-course meal. Paired with rich velvet tablecloths and white linens are the perfect amount of gold metallics to make it all pop! This includes Chiavari Chairs, gold-rimmed Athena Plates, and Austin Flatware. A touch of fresh florals in clear glass vases goes on to add some natural beauty.

Rich hues of reds paired with classic Southern blues for this recent vineyard wedding inspired style shoot at Arrington Vineyards. Elegant and romantic in color and style, we were honored to be part of this!
For the vineyard wedding inspired ceremony, we used our Fruitwood Folding Chairs, which complimented the red roses and red anemones that were found throughout the design. We love how this look blends in seamlessly with the expansive winery backdrop while feeling both intimate and warm.
For the reception inspiration, we brought in our rustic Fruitwood Farm Table, modern Brushed Copper Flatware, and timeless White Square China. Floral designs bursting with red blooms topped off the gorgeous tablescape. And to round out the sophisticated vibe of this style shoot, our Cybil Glassware joined the party for a toast! Cheers!
Thank you, Ivory Door Studio, for the lovely images.

With summer weather in full swing, we’ve been especially inspired by all things outdoors. If you’re in Nashville (or anywhere in the United States), take one step outside around dinner time and you’ll smell it. It’s cookout season. From neighborhood block parties to back-to-school parties (soon!) to corporate get-togethers, most events migrate outdoors to make use of the green grass, fresh blooms, and blue skies. Southern Events recently partner with local Nashville vendors to create a fresh look for an outdoor party style shoot. Join us as we reminisce over the laid-back feel of the event.
Most people love the easy-natured feel of an outdoor cookout party. It just brings people together. Simple and comfortable textures, rustic accessories, and bright colors marry to create a fresh and fun vibe. We used Red and White Check Linens to emphasize the nostalgic feel and bring a fun, picnic theme to the look. The cookout food was set atop our White-Washed Barnwood Barrel Bar. Festive ice-cold drinks were served in our Hungarian Baby Bath.
An important part of any event is having more than just one area for guests to lounge. If you want them to stick around after the food (or make sure they’re comfy while waiting to dig in), we recommend a lounge area. For this outdoor cookout party, we brought our Simplicity Bench, Chocolate Pouf, Stone Round Fire Pit, and plenty of pillows and blankets for texture and to help make the party feel more inviting.
We had so much fun working on this shoot with the talented Locklane Events and Feather and Oak at Cedarmont Farms and adore these images provided by Erin Allender Photography. Here’s to Southern summers!
If you’re planning a back-to-school outdoor party or a fun corporate get-together, we’d love to help make it stylish & Southern. Send us a message at email@example.com.

Southern Events recently took part in an Open House at City Winery, and we love how our gorgeous rentals shine at this venue. We used a combination of gold, neutral, and blush to create a luxe feel. Add to that beautiful color combination modern materials like our Acrylic Chairs, Midas Gold Bench, and Gold Furrow Linen, and it was definitely swoon-worthy.
We absolutely adore all the possibilities available at City Winery. Whether you’re going full-on “honky-tonk” or wanting a feminine and modern look, you can make it all happen here.

2019’s Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral, and we have all the heart-eyes for this color! There are tons of ways to go about incorporating Living Coral: sweet, feminine, classy, Southern…the ideas go on and on. Here, we are in love with how the spunky color combination of teal and coral can evoke both glam as well as fun vibes. If you’re looking to incorporate 2019’s Pantone Color of the Year – Living Coral – we think this is a fabulous way to do it. We adore how the color pops up in a myriad of ways at this Spring Tasting Event at CJs off the Square (even down to the adorable cocktail).
This glam and fun theme incorporates gold, mismatched and detailed dinnerware, and our swoon-worthy Farrah Teal Velvet Chair. The teal color woven through the theme takes the coral to a new level. The Tessa Tufted Beige Loveseat just had to be part of this look, with the glam and fun lines on the piece calling out to be included in this Coral shin-dig.
Poppies and other coral floral designs–along with coral linens–accented the event, assisting the teal and coral theme in adding to the glam and fun vibes.
Beautiful images by Jenna Henderson Photographer.
