On Trend: All-Black Event Design & Tablescapes

Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration

There’s nothing more luxe than a black-tie event and this season that formal luxury is coming to your tablescapes, too. The all-black event design trend is one we are proud to get behind – these onyx details are so dreamy!

The key to designing with a single color instead of a color palette is to select varying materials and textures to keep things three-dimensional. Luckily, Southern Events and Party Rental Company has dozens of rentals in each color to choose from, including this season’s coveted all-black. From the chic tablecloths to stone Onyx China, this all-black aesthetic was absolutely stunning.

Tables were surrounded by our Ghost Armless Acrylic Chairs and covered by a luxe Black Dupioni Table Linen. Austin Gold Flatware provided a metallic accent, while the modern and sleek Cybil Glassware were the perfect modern adornment. Black Table Napkins sat between Onyx Earthen China Dinner and Salad Plates, breaking up the black luxe without veering from the color of choice.

Looking to add in just a touch more color? We kept the Ghost Chairs, the glassware, and the table linen, but made a few key changes to the place settings to bring another all-black design to list. Our Carerra Marble Dinner Plates were perfect for keeping things moody and dramatic while adding just a bit of brightness to the tablescape. Featuring one of our Glass Chargers with Gold Rim was a unique way to keep to the all-black color palette – the glass added a bit of texture while still letting the black truly shine. One final change in adding Sophia Flatware made it so that two metallic accents didn’t overshadow the beautiful all-black design.
