Garden weddings are popular themes, especially during the warmer months of the year. As we sit and dream with couples, we hear their love for the romantic feel this theme offers. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of seeing garden weddings come together in a myriad of ways, and we have fallen head over heels for the whimsical palettes and charming event design. Keep reading to get inspired by our take on the modern garden wedding, featuring sleek and sophisticated rentals that make for an incredibly chic celebration!
Sleek and Chic Tables
This modern take on garden weddings can be achieved by bringing in bright rentals featuring geometric shapes that contrast dramatically with the freeform nature of, well, nature. Outfit your tables in colorful linens that will POP against a lush garden setting. For balance, feature our Harlin Dining Chairs or Cross-Back Chairs, made of natural wood. If you prefer an equally romantic but vintage-inspired look, consider our Antique White Bentwood Chairs.
Dreamy Velvet Details
Masculine elements, such as monochromatic color schemes contrast beautifully against soft florals and greenery. All white or all black furniture against a dreamy, floral aesthetic is both masculine and modern! Although, we’re still a fan of lighter palettes that complement whimsical florals. You can achieve a luxe but chic look by featuring textured details, namely in the form of velvet linens! Some of our current favorite colors include bold blue hues and romantic pinks and purples!
Elegant Social Areas
When hosting an event outdoors you tend to have more area to fill – in which case there is no reason not to have a cocktail lounge! Something simple yet elegant and cozy where guests can enjoy a drink and socialize. Take a look at our curated lounge packages, or mix and match our pieces to make your own. Our Bennett Leather Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs are a fine pair, especially when complemented by a set of Chocolate Poufs and stylish accent tables. Meanwhile a rug will help frame the space!
We adore taking lovely decor pieces and transforming them by creating interactive designs that deliver jaw drops from the guests and serve a purpose. In this case, our Boxwood Wall shows up to look gorgeous, with bright ice pops that also serve as a stylish backdrop for a photo-op. Alternatively, you might dish up some champagne to greet guests at the door!

When hosting a backyard party we like to go big! And that starts with creating memorable tablescapes at which people can gather to dine and socialize. The foundation of which are your linens, which set the stage for your event design. Today we’re sharing our luxe event linens that will elevate your outdoor celebrations in Nashville. Keep reading to learn about our in-stock rentals, available in a range of on-trend colors and high-end materials.
On Trend Colors
By far the easiest way to choose the best linens for your event tables is considering color. For a backyard party, we recommend one of two options. First, go bold with striking color! In the spring, we love soft pastels that pop against a lush natural setting – say pink or purple. Although dusty hues, like blue, can be equally beautiful. Second, keep it natural! Opting for colors that complement an outdoor space is an easy way to achieve a timeless look. Consider a crisp white or light shades of brown, like driftwood or taupe. More recently greens have been a hit, in sage and moss.
In addition to colors, the type of materials you feature can help set the tone for your event. Our selection of luxe event linens includes a range of materials, from soft velvets to buttery satin and more! Here are just a few of our current favorites!
Velvet Event Linens
Velvet linens are the latest and greatest fad in event linen rentals. Largely because it is a simple yet effective way to feature texture at your tables. And it’s available in a huge array of gorgeous colors! For a backyard gathering, we recommend bright colors like Light Pink, Sea Glass, or Fern Velvet. Or, for an especially sophisticated look, opt for one of our etched designs featuring metallic accents. Such as Dusty Blue Etched Velvet or White Etched Velvet.
Satin linens are a more classic option for tablecloths, but a modern option thanks to the wide range of colors available! The buttery material is light yet has a slight sheen that oozes luxury. During the spring, it is one of our favorite choices – and it will be yours too if you have an appreciation for pastels. Consider colors like Wisteria, Mint, Mediterranean, and Wheat.
With their gorgeous texture, Kennedy Linens are one of our favorite tablecloths for a backyard party. Lightweight and with a natural feel, it is one of the best choices if you’re hosting a laid-back event with an upscale and airy vibe. It comes in a range of natural colors, including Cactus, Fawn, Topaz, and White. Make sure to grab matching napkins – but in a different color!
Patterns & Prints
Want a more bold yet still luxurious table? Be sure to take a look at our inventory of miscellaneous linens! There you’ll find unique patterns and prints like our elegant Gold Furrow and Gold Aurora Linens.

To help you host a memorable warm-weather celebration in Tennessee, we’re sharing some organic spring wedding inspiration featuring our on-trend rentals.
Airy Reception Setups
First things first, let’s talk ceremony details! You can pull off a modern organic look indoors or out, regardless of the state of the weather. Starting with simple and timeless seating. Our Fruitwood Folding Chairs are a natural color, ideal for an outdoor setting. Whereas our Antique White Bentwood Chairs will brighten any indoor space! And, don’t forget an elegant ceremony backdrop – both our Metal Ceremony Ring and Wedding Canopy are easy to customize.
Organic Reception Tables
When designing your reception tables, carry over the simple but romantic theme. But don’t be afraid of color! This year, we’re loving rich table linens – perfect when featuring white china. A few of our favorites include the Fern Velvet and Sea Glass Velvet Linens. Both of these pair well with our White Round China and Rattan White Wash Chargers. For an extra pop of color, you might also feature our colored goblets in Green or Amber! We love this look for an indoor dinner.
If you’re hosting outdoors, we recommend a brighter palette that will stand out against a lush backdrop, such as a garden.

In 2022 we brought a lot of trends to fruition, from micro-weddings and backyard gatherings, to boho and retro-inspired rentals, as well as neutral and earth-toned color palettes. But now it’s time to look to the future! Today we’re going to take a look at some of the anticipated 2022 event trends, so that you can start planning your best gathering yet.
We saw a snippet of this trend in 2021, with opulent garden parties. But in 2022, we’re taking it to the next level with set ups inspired by the hit series Bridgerton, also known as Cottagecore. For this event style, we’re expecting pastel-rich color palettes, luxe textures, and vintage-inspired furniture.
Start with memorable tablescapes, featuring unique colors and fun rentals. For example, our Fern or Sea Glass velvet linens, or more decade appropriate Blue Kensington print. Top them off with our mismatched Heirloom China, or break up all the prints with our dainty Darcy China. The best choice for flatware is our versatile Abby or Sophia flatware. Finally, incorporate a splash of texture with our Green or Amber Goblets.
If you’re hosting an accurate event, then you’ll also need an equally impressive cocktail hour setup – high-society gatherings were all about mingling! Rent our Franklin Antique White Bar and a lounge to match. Such as our Fern Velvet Sofa, a set of Everly Chairs, and our Rhodes Coffee and side tables. Cocktail tables are also available for those who prefer to remain standing room!
Due to a large number of couples postponing their nuptials in 2021, sequel weddings will be a hit in 2022. That is, a big party following an intimate ceremony. Which can also be used following a vow renewal, or any type of post-pandemic celebration. These events will be focused on living in the moment, so they don’t have to be luxe – but they can be!
At these events, we’ll want to help create a small and cozy feel, which can be achieved with soft textures and warm colors. Think earthy, natural tones, like Terra Cotta or Rust. For a ceremony, start with our classic White or Fruitwood Folding Chairs and line the aisle with mismatched cowhide rugs.
For your reception, as well as any other small dinners, you’ll want to create cozy tablescapes and lounge areas where people can gather. Start with one of our beautiful Farm Tables paired with a neutral-colored runner, in Ivory or Natural Sahara. Next, feature simple serving ware, such as our Artisan or Earthen Alabaster China. For some fun pops of color, consider our Amber Goblets and elegant velvet napkins in Spice or Cameo Blush. Easily create a complementary lounge with our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs.
Mocktails & Sober Cocktails
Wellness is a priority for a large amount of the population at the start of a new year. And to help you and your guests achieve that goal throughout the year, we recommend upping your mocktail game! Which is easy to achieve with our wide selection of gorgeous glassware rentals. For this 2022 event trend, grab some of our favorites, like our Audrey Gold Rim Glassware and Whimsical Cybil Glassware. If you want a more colorful look, go with our Colored Glassware in a Meridian Blue and Smoke.
At Southern Events, we’re excited to help you continue to celebrate with these 2022 event trends! A reminder, however, that as we see an increase in gatherings our rentals will book up faster than ever. Be sure to secure your rentals as soon as possible to ensure that the pieces you love the most will be available at the time of your event. Reach out today, at email@example.com!

Regardless of the type of event you host, a lounge area (or several) are essential – encouraging guests to sit, sip and mingle. And at Southern Events, we’re making it easier than ever to create a lounge area that is timeless and cozy, with stylish rentals featuring luxe textures, neutral colors, and organic shapes. Take a look at our new natural luxe lounge furniture perfect for your next Middle Tennessee event, from galas to weddings!
Hammered Side & Coffee Tables
Our Hammered Side and Coffee Tables are a gorgeous centerpiece for any lounge area, especially for a cocktail hour. A classic shape and a muted metallic color, they pair well with most any color furniture. We offer both the side and coffee tables in both a beautiful Gold and Pewter color!
We love a cozy ottoman and our Caramel Leather Ottoman is a must-have! A rich chocolatey brown, this stunning leather piece will complement most any furniture. It pairs especially well without Gloria Velvet Armchairs – and always looks stunning atop a cowhide rug.
Grey Tufted Ottoman
If you want to lend a slightly more chic look to your natural luxe lounge furniture set up, opt for our Grey Tufted Ottoman. This super cozy piece features beautiful tufted details in a classic grey color. It’s the perfect piece to use if your other furniture is especially vibrant or colorful.
One of our favorite new pieces, the Charleston Bistro is oh so elegant! It features a stunning gold metallic base and a marble top. It’s essential for a luxe cocktail hour, especially if you’re working with limited space and don’t have enough room for a full lounge area.
Fern & Jaqueline Sofas
The epitome of natural luxe lounge furniture, our velvet sofas will be your new favorites! They feature rich natural colors and ultra-soft textures that will make it hard for your guests to leave. They also feature beautiful tufting – Fern Velvet with classic, and Jaqueline with vertical.
Bamboo Arm Chair
A unique statement piece, our Bamboo Arm Chairs are as comfy as they are stylish. A muted gold, this high back chair features beautiful bamboo details throughout. We recommend pairing it with either our Fern Velvet or Jaqueline Sofas!

One of the premier charity events in Tennessee, the Phoenix Ball is a black tie gala benefiting Cumberland University. This year’s theme was Draped In Decadence: Masked in Mystery, featuring our luxe gold & ivory gala rentals. Keep reading to get inspired for your own fundraiser or gala.
A Grand Event Entrance
Upon arriving at the venue, guests were welcomed inside via a red carpet. To create a more elegant entrance, the walls were lined with white draping. Our Loren Gold Bistro Table was set up to greet guests, along with some bubbly! The Gold Boxwood Wall was decorated with white shelving for flutes and a custom neon sign, making for a fun photo op.
Gold & Ivory Tablescapes
Matching the theme, the dinner tables were created using gold and ivory serving ware. To make the most of the space, we used a mix of round and rectangular tables, along with our classic Gold Chiavari Chairs. They were dressed in coordinated linens, including Gold Furrow, Ivory Pearl Shalimar, and Victorian Gold Luxe. Each place setting featured a gold or silver charger, along with our stunning Ophelia or Hamlet China, and Austin Flatware.
Luxe & Comfy Lounges
For any fundraiser or gala to be a success, you need comfy areas for guests to relax and converse. Throughout the event space, we created a range of small and large lounges. The largest being our neutral Pearce Lounge, complemented with the sleek Blanche Coffee Table. Smaller areas included a pair of Fantasma Acrylic Chairs and a trio of Cheval Gold Mirror Side Tables. And our always popular white leather Mercer Collection!
Spaces for Entertainment
The focal point of the gala was an expansive white dance floor set to our Harpeth Stage Facade. Set to the beautiful white drapery and crystal curtains, it was a stunning setting for dancing & celebrating. On either side, bars were also accessible. And they were stocked with a variety of classic glassware, including Martini and Highball Glasses, plus Champagne Flutes.
Custom Bar & Food Displays
With such a large event space, we wanted to ensure that food and drinks were easily accessible from any point. In addition to being welcomed with champagne, guests could access a bar both indoors and outdoors. Our elegant white Harpeth bars were outfitted with a custom insert to match the gold & ivory gala theme. A pair of gold bar back shelves were also used to display some sweet treats and was adjacent to a small coffee bar.
A special shout out to Phindy Studios for sharing the photos from this fabulous event!

If you’ve been dreaming of an event that is equal parts moody and elegant, then you won’t want to overlook the boho luxe style. Featuring beautifully contrasting colors and geometric details. Keep reading for some boho luxe inspiration from a recent wedding we participated in at Saddlewood Farms in Tennessee.
Hosted on the grass lawn, the wedding ceremony was a classic bohemian affair with luxe decor. Guests were seated in our simple White Folding Chairs. While the aisle was lined with Cowhide Rugs and arrangements featuring dried palms and fresh roses. For a backdrop, the two opted for a solid black Triangle Wedding Arbor. It was the perfect choice to ensure that the two stood out against the lush forest.
Afterward, they retired to the large reception bar, where string lights dripped from the ceiling and walls. The space was practically glowing, with the most beautiful soft light. Guests were immediately greeted by our white Harpeth Curved Bar, making it approachable from any side. For a one-of-a-kind look, don’t forget to opt for a custom bar sign!
The dinner tables were outfitted in slick black linens with short floral centerpieces that lent a fun touch of texture. They were set with our Classic White Square China, Hammered Flatware, and Davis glassware. For linens, they opted for our stunning Azalea Poly, a moody yet feminine color. The couple’s sweetheart table was equally luxe, featuring our Fruitwood Farm Table with Ghost Acrylic Armless Chairs. Davis Glass Cylinders sat on the floor with pillar candles, making it especially romantic.
Of course, what is a wedding without designated areas for mingling? Flanking the bar was our sleek white Mercer Lounge. It was topped with matching florals and soft pillows – to make it extra cozy! To ensure guests could make full use of the lush event space, other small lounges sat just outside the barn. Including small accent tables, where people could set their food and drinks. They were decorated with pure black linens that manicured lawn.
Special shoutout to Brasspenny Photography for sharing the images from this pair’s day with us!

With virtual options becoming more normalized for corporate meetings & summits – but attendees still wanting in-person experiences, we expect to see more and more hybrid meeting options. Hybrid corporate summits bring together attendees both in person as well as virtual, making for unique opportunities and challenges when setting the stage and choosing your rentals. After all, they’re still meant to inform and inspire – and impress! To help you host a memorable corporate event for our new normal, check out our essential event rentals that are as functional as they are stylish. Plus! Be sure to grab a copy of our Event Essentials Guide with tips and tricks.
Camera-Ready Stage Set-Ups
It’s important to create the right focal point for your event! A stage that is comfortable, stylish, and on-brand as well as virtually interesting is key. From unique stage seating to out-of-the-box chairs, Southern Events Party Rental Company offers quite the selection to choose from. Our Bennett and Henley Sofas, Eiffel Chairs, Adeline Chairs, Rory Chairs, and Farrah Chairs offer stylish, unique, and comfortable seating for the speakers as they sit on the stage. Accent tables make for a cozy and complete look (as well as a perch for speaker notes or water). Be sure to also consider your stage backdrops – they help frame the space and create a uniform look for virtual users. We love our Boxwood Walls and Pipe & Drape for stage backdrops.
If you are hosting a more formal speaker or handing out awards, then you will need a lectern. Helpful for keeping your guests front and center, as well as amplifying their voice, they are a staple whether or not you have staging. It will also create a more overall organized event layout! In addition to providing a focal point for in-person guests, it will make live streaming easier for the camera crew as there is an obvious mark for people to speak from on stage. Our Acrylic Lectern is a unique contemporary (and customizable with a cling) choice, while Black Metal is a classic.
Upgrade Your Seating for In-Person Socializing
Want to uplevel your event seating? Make the space extra special for in-person attendees and opt for fun contemporary pieces, like our Acrylic Chairs. Available in a variety of styles, they make for a unique addition to any table. You’ll also want cozy lounge and bistro areas. Whether they are used for breakoff sessions or breaks between speakers where people can spread out. Check out our Mercer Collection (with built-in charging ports) or Pearce Furniture. Or opt for one or two of our curated lounge packages, complete with sofas, chairs, rugs, and accent tables.
Show Off Your Brand
Because corporate summits exist to instill pride and cast vision, weaving on-brand materials and signage throughout the event is typically a strong move in the right direction. You can do this through our customizable Harpeth Bar. As well as custom pillows or colorful clings placed on the back of seating. Or opt for a memorable, photo-worthy entryway, made using our elegant Boxwood Walls.
