On Trend | Pretty In Pastel: Our Most Popular Spring Rentals

On Trend, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration


Nothing is quite as invigorating as a bright spring gathering after a long and dreary winter. As nature springs back to life consider hosting a casual outdoor party. Whether it is a simple backyard dinner or a semi-formal cocktail hour, light bites, refreshing beverages, and good company are exactly what the doctor calls for! Get inspired by our most popular spring event design ideas, featuring our pastel event rentals. From chic linens and elegant serving ware to dreamy lounge areas, we have everything you need to host a sunny spring soiree.

Sleek & Chic Serving Pieces

Is it just us or does a well-thought-out place setting make for an extra charming table? Modern chic event design calls for a bright palette featuring crisp serving ware with a splash of color. Start with simple china, such as the Classic Round or dainty Darcy, and for a more muted white, consider Alabaster Earthen China. You can add texture with our Elegant Rattan White Wash Charger or Scalloped Wood Charger – paired with pastel linens, you’ll achieve an elegant table. If you would like a little more color, swap the white china out for brighter plates – perhaps the Coronado, Laguna, or Veral Floral China. Choosing flatware is simple. Just select a polished, matte, or brushed finish.

Fancy Glassware + Drink Displays

One of our favorite spring event ideas is signature drinks. And we have a variety of gorgeous glassware that will elevate any cocktail (or mocktail)! Popular choices include Cybil Wine Glass, Monaco Rock Glass, and Pure Water Glass. Our Franklin 4 Ft Antique White Bar is a classic choice for a small gathering. Use it to display your favorite alcohol and mixers. Or feature batch cocktails placed atop our Rattan Beverage Jar Stand. If you need additional display pieces, take a look at our White 6-Tier Serving Tower or White Bookcase.

Bright Linens

Linens are one of the most effective ways to incorporate color into your event table. And we have a huge array of pastel event rentals to help you create a spring-inspired tablescape! From subtle blue and purple hues to sunny yellows and greens. You can add as many colors or shades of color as you like by mixing and matching tablecloths and napkins.

Create a trendy monochromatic look by pairing our Peaches n’ Cream Poly Linens with Coral Velvet Napkins, or pair classic colors with a buttery texture when you combine our Fern Velvet Tablecloth with Navy Blue Velvet Napkins. Other gorgeous choices include Lilac Poly, Honey Poly, and Light Blue Pindot. If you prefer muted pastels, be sure to consider our Kennedy Collection.

Sunny Outdoor Event Lounges

Is there any better way to enjoy the outdoors than a sunny lounge area? Having at least one, if not several, will encourage your guests to cozy up and hang out – hopefully with a cocktail in hand! Start with a stylish sofa that will stand out against nature. Such as the Everly or Bennett Leather Sofa. Then consider armchairs, like our always popular Gloria Velvet. Or sub in dining chairs for an extra-chic look, whether it be the Harlin or Adeline chairs.

You will also want a set of accent tables, which can be a great way to add in metallics – like the Gold Hammered or Cheval Gold Mirror Side Tables. One of the most underrated spring event rentals is our stylish rugs, which will help frame lounge furniture placed on a lawn or gravel – to make the space extra cozy you can also feature a mix of poufs and ottomans.
