Here at Southern Events, we love a modern tablescape! While modern can sometimes mean stark or cold, your table design can have a modern feel and still be elegant and timeless.  With earthy elements, luxe fabrics, clean lines, and ghost chairs, we created three modern Southern tablescapes to inspire you.

#1 Modern Luxe Tablescape

Moody and glam, our modern luxe style features our Black Dupioni LinenCarrera Marble Dinner Plates, Cybil GlasswareSofia Flatware and Glass Chargers with Gold Rim. Taper candles in a sleek iron candle holder with carefully placed succulents as well as our Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs, give this tablescape it’s modern lines while remaining understated. This table design would be perfect for a black tie gala, fundraiser or chic rehearsal dinner.


#2 Modern Seaside Southern Tablescape

Navy linens, relaxed china & glassware combine with an airy centerpiece and copper flatware to create a tablescape perfect for dining al fresco! For this modern seaside-inspired Southern tablescape, we used our Navy Blue Velvet Linens, Earthen ChinaDavis Glassware and Brushed Copper Flatware. Our Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs once again keep this relaxed tablescape modern. Plus, we love using navy as a neutral, especially when it’s velvet.




#3 Modern Tuscan Southern Tablescape

Give your event a modern Tuscan feel! With patterned dinnerware, aqua linens and an oversized, this modern southern tablescape just needs wine! Featuring our Coronado ChinaEarthen ChinaSofia Flatware, Davis GlasswareOcean Blue Velvet Linens, Dove Gray Chiffon Runner, and Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs.
