With regal and royal trending in event design, we’re all about appreciating the finer things in life – including black-tie dinner parties! This theme is perfect for adding an upscale feel to any celebration, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, reunion, corporate achievement, and so on. Plus, planning a formal event is easier than ever, thanks to our elegant in-stock event rentals. Check out our serving ware, furniture, and decor that can be used to elevate your tablescape and impress your dinner guests!

Elegant Serving Ware

Black tie event design is all about luxury! For the table, we offer a range of stylish serving ware that suits any palette and style. White China is always a good start, whether you prefer Round plates or a more charming design, like Darcy. For a more moody table, opt for Earthen Onyx or Stone China. And should you prefer a more glam look, check out pieces that feature metallics. Such as our Glass Charger with a Gold Rim or Medallion Gold Glass Charger. If you want a touch of color, take a look at our gold accented Laguna or Coronado China.

Just don’t forget to grab matching flatware! Our Gold Austin and Abby Flatware are always popular. Meanwhile, the Noir Matte Black and Como Flatware are edgy yet stylish.

Luxe Seating

Although your own dining chairs will do just fine, swapping your seating for a special evening can make a big impact. It also makes for more cohesive black-tie dinner parties! We offer a variety of stylish seating options, from more traditional designs to unique contemporary pieces. Our Harlin Dining Chairs are ideal for luxe Southern-inspired gatherings, as our the Adeline Chairs. Whereas the Acrylic Carrigan Side Chairs offer a more modern but equally formal look! Then there is the always popular Chiavari Chairs, available in four beautiful colors, which look stunning in any setting.

Hosting a black-tie wedding or black-tie corporate event? Don’t fret! We have plenty of seating in stock for small parties as well as large gatherings.

The ‘Wow’ Factor

While most black-tie event themes entail neutral palettes and elegant serving ware, we love a ‘wow’ factor. In fact, we encourage it! Little details that will have guests talking, snapping pics, and admiring the thought that went into the design. It can be as simple as quirky glassware, like our always popular Cybil Wine Glasses or Champagne Flutes. Or luxurious velvet linens, in a deep Magnolia or eye-catching Merlot – they won’t be able to keep their hands off it! Another luxe addition are stylish centerpieces like our Davis Glass Cylinders, paired with greenery and candles. Or our contemporary Acrylic Rectangle Container.
