A new year always brings new event trends, and we are loving these event rental trends for 2020! From monochromatic color palettes to interactive displays, we’ll show you how to wow guests with stunning event rentals from Southern.

Looking for a full-service team to help style your event? Reach out to schedule your personal tour of our Franklin showroom, info@southerneventsonline.com.

Monochromatic Decor

We’ve been crushing on monochrome schemes for a while, so we’re all in with this event design trend. Go for the drama with a monochromatic palette in all black, mixing textures to create depth – ie: All. The. Velvet! Create an elegant event lounge with our Black Velvet Sofa and Black and Silver Rug, or layer our matte Onyx Earthen China with Black Velvet or Dupioni Linens for a chic table setting.

Art Deco Blues

Update traditional Art Deco event themes with Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year – Classic Blue. For a Tennessee twist, think blues instead of jazz with event rentals like our Navy Blue Velvet Linens, Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa, Rory Navy Velvet Chair, and Meridian Blue Tumblers.

Bold Lines

Make it modern and graphic with clean lines and minimal fuss – and a little metallic never hurt! Keep your rentals simple and streamlined like Loren Bistro Table and Acrylic Ghost Barstools for cocktail hours, and deck out your event bar with our geometric Avenue Bar Back Shelving, Harpeth Bars, and Gold Bar Cart.

Warm Tones

Warm-up your 2020 events with earthy tones and cozy textures like velvet (again, we are so. in. love!) – from dusty rose, peach, terra cotta and, of course, gold! Take a note from City Winery’s open house and mix linens for a more interesting look – like our Cameo Blush or Merlot Velvet Linens with the neutral and glamorous Furrow Gold Linens. Bring in another trend with the modern, clean lines of our Acrylic Carrigan Chairs and Midas Gold Benches!
