Southern Events is prepared with silver and gold event rentals for New Year’s Eve. A stylish and modern choice that will ensure that your festivities are nothing short of spectacular! Get ready to welcome 2024 in style with our guide to hosting a dazzling soirée featuring bold metallic details that ooze luxury.
Serving Ware that Shines
Make a statement from the moment your guests arrive with serving ware that sparkles and shines. Elevate your dining experience by opting for metallic flatware, gold-rimmed glassware, and eye-catching chargers that exude sophistication. We offer a curated selection of metallic serving pieces that will not only impress your guests but also elevate the overall aesthetic of your New Year’s Eve feast. If you prefer gold, create a timeless stack using the Glass Charger with Gold Rim and Ophelia China with Austin Gold Flatware. For those who love silver, its easy to achieve an elegant table with a Silver Round Lacquer Charger and Carrera Marble Dinner Plates or Glass China. Complete the place setting with our classic Brooklyn or elegant Abby Flatware. Alternatively, metallic flatware will POP against bold linens! Just like this Brushed Copper Flatware on top of Black Linens and Onyx China.
Shimmering Event Linens
A subtle detail that can elevate any table is the right choice of linens. Drape your tables with shimmering tablecloths in gold, silver, or metallic hues to create a luxurious foundation. Consider the Silver White Leaf or Silver Furrow linens for an elegant icy look. If you aren’t afraid to go big and bold, the solid Gold Gold Fairmount or Victorian Luxe Gold are a striking choice! Meanwhile, the Gold Furrow Linens are more subtle. Lastly, dark linens will beautifully contrast bright china. Such as our popular Grey Nova with soft swirls of silver and gold. The play of light on these textured linens will create a captivating atmosphere. Ensuring your guests remember this New Year’s Eve celebration for years to come.
Furniture that Wows
Stylish metallic furniture rentals for New Year’s Eve that wow? Southern has you covered! We offer a range of metallic-finished chairs, and accent pieces that will add a touch of glamour to your party space. A classic choice for New Year’s dinners or galas is our Gold Chiavari Chairs. You might also consider incorporating gold and silver furniture pieces throughout lounge areas. One of our favorite ways to achieve this is with accent tables. We have beautiful standalone pieces like the Blanche or Avalon Round Coffee Table. Or sets, such as our favorite Echo Mirrored Side Tables. Your guests will appreciate the attention to detail as they lounge in comfort and style. Or, keep it simple when you feature our Charleston Bistro Table or the larger Loren Gold Bistro Table.
No New Year’s Eve party is complete without a well-stocked bar, and what better way to showcase your libations than with a sparkling bar area? Elevate your drink service with metallic glassware, including the Celia Gold Rim. Served from the contemporary Cheslea Marble Top Bar. To ensure your beverage station not only serves top-notch drinks but serves as a visual centerpiece, store your glassware or bottles on the Gold Avenue Bar Back Shelf. Another option is to create a self-service drink station with hot beverages. Our Silver Coffee Urns are perfect for dishing out coffee or hot chocolate following dinner.

When it comes to hosting a memorable event, the right event bar layout can make all the difference. Southern Event Rentals offers a vast inventory of stylish event bars, designed to cater to your specific needs. Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a large-scale celebration, we have a range of options to suit your guest count and style. Explore the different event bar layouts available. From single event bars to full oval event bars, and even event bar backdrops.
Single Event Bars
A single bar is the go-to choice for your typical event. They strike a perfect balance between style and functionality. These bars are designed to accommodate two bartenders at most, making them suitable for events with moderate guest counts. Although two can be placed side by side if needed. Single bars account for the majority of our inventory and encompass a range of styles and colors. Some of the most popular include the Chelsea Marble Top Bar and Collins Black Wood Bar. For smaller, cozier events such as at-home gatherings or backyard parties, the 4-foot Antique White Event Bar is the way to go. Mini bars are tailored to suit more intimate settings, providing a charming and approachable option for serving your guests.
Half Oval Event Bars
If you’re expecting a larger number of guests and want to maintain an elegant bar setup, half-oval event bars are your solution. These bars feature a half-oval shape, offering ample space for bartenders to work their magic. Plus, plenty of internal storage for your beverages, glassware, and equipment. They work exceptionally well when placed against a wall, optimizing your event space and providing an aesthetically pleasing focal point. This event bar layout can be achieved with both our Thompson White and Thompson Oak Bar Collections. Although the Harpeth Bar is also a beautiful choice as it can also be customized!
Full Oval Event Bars
For grand events where serving a large number of people at once is a top priority, the full oval event bar is the best choice. The Thompson White and Oak Full Oval Event Bars are the largest in our inventory, ensuring that your guests won’t have to wait in long lines for their favorite drinks. The internal storage of these bars is spacious. But if you require more room, additional shelving can be placed in the center. This will allow you to stock a wide range of beverages and supplies.
Event Bar Backdrops
To take your event bar to the next level, consider adding event bar backdrops. Shelving is a stylish and functional choice for stocking a beautiful selection of glassware, as well as bottles. Choose from two styles, a Barback Shelf and a Bookcase. Alternatively, Boxwood Walls are a classic choice that is easy to customize. They can be affixed with decorative elements or signage, perfect for showcasing corporate event sponsors.
Southern Event Rentals offers a large inventory of stylish event bars to choose from. Ensuring that you find the perfect solution for your next event.

A new year and new design trends call for new event rentals! In 2023 we expect to see an increase in elevated events that showcase an attention to detail, big and small. Whether you’re planning a bold modern wedding, an intimate birthday bash, or a casual backyard soiree. To help you host a well-thought-out event that will leave a lasting impression on your guests, take a look at our new in-stock event rentals, from luxe linens to sleek serving ware and trendy event furniture.
Stylish Serving Ware + Linens
Modern event tables are bigger and brighter than ever. But rather than featuring intricate serving ware, centerpieces serve as the focal point. Such as large floral arrangements and bold textured linens. Meanwhile, chargers, china, and flatware are sleek and simple. Together, these details lend a perfect balance between minimalism and maximalism! This aesthetic is easy to achieve with our new serving ware & linens. Create a moody neutral table starring our Sahara Runner in White, topped with a Glass Charger with Black Rim and Noir Matte Black Flatware. For a more chic design, try our Sierra Runner in Rose with Georgia China and Fresno Matte Gold Flatware.
Trendy Lounge Furniture
If you’ve read any of our blogs then you know we love a stylish event lounge! They are a simple but effective way to elevate any event, from corporate cocktail hours to weddings or backyard parties. To help our clients create one-of-a-kind areas that encourage guests to sit, sip and mingle, we’re adding new furniture to our inventory. Including accent tables, plush sofas, and armchairs. Some of our favorite additions are the Marine Navy Velvet Chair and Grey Tufted Ottoman. Both of which look stunning paired with a Hammered Coffee Table, in Pewter or Gold. To stay on top of the trends we have also updated our lounge packages – be sure to take a look to see if any of these curated collections align with your upcoming event.
On-Theme Event Bars
If there is one item that every event needs, it’s a bar! These versatile pieces aren’t just for serving drinks, but can also be used for displaying food, decor, and more. That’s why this year we are adding a new variety of bars to our inventory that will align with current design trends and event themes. Take our Chelsea Marble Top Bar, a luxe piece fitting for modern retro events or chic cocktail parties. Meanwhile, staple pieces like the Harpeth 8ft Bar can be customized with signage, for weddings or corporate galas! Or create an elegant dessert or champagne tower using White 6-Tier Serving Tower.

Team Southern recently had the opportunity to collaborate with local vendors on a whimsical styled shoot at The Cordelle. An event venue & garden situated in Downtown Nashville, it was a stunning backdrop for the colorful outdoor wedding. With a mix of historic and modern spaces, featuring grandeur and charm, there was no shortage of room to create a functional and on-trend wedding layout. Check out the details from this dreamy garden-inspired wedding, featuring our stylish event rentals.
Seating for a Whimsical Indoor Ceremony
The ceremony took place in The Victorian, featuring brick walls, hardwood floors, and beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows. Contrasting the urban event space, we opted for our elegant Harlin Dining Chairs. Featuring light wood and detailed backs, they were the perfect choice for the dreamy indoor ceremony. An equally gorgeous alternative would have been our Adeline Dining Chairs! While we decided to keep the aisle bare, featuring a mix of our vintage rugs would have also been a beautiful choice, lending a cozy vibe.
A Dreamy Outdoor Reception Set Up
Meanwhile, the 5,000-square-foot Garden Lawn created an ethereal garden reception. The manicured lawn and bistro lights overhead made for a charming outdoor setup – especially come nightfall. Our Fruitwood Farm Tables and Harlin Dining Chairs were the base for the guest tables. This banquet style is perfect if you want a more intimate feel! Set with Heirloom China, Hob Nob Glassware, and Sophia Flatware, the look was elegant and vintage-inspired. Fun fresh florals and Turqouise Poly Napkins provided a punch of color, fitting for the season! Our Davis Glass Cylinders filled in the table centerpieces.
Blue-Hued Wedding Lounge
Eventually, The Victorian was flipped into a cozy cocktail area. Contrasting the warm-toned space, we chose our always popular Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa and Chair. It paired beautifully with a bright Aqua Rug and modern Rhodes Coffee Table. To optimize the space were a handful of cocktail tables – dressed up with deep black linen. Combining with the whimsical florals, it was a perfect cocktail hour set up for the colorful garden wedding.
On-Theme Wedding Cocktails
To match the colorful event design, equally bold wedding cocktails were required! J Jackson Mobile Mixologist served up a variety of delicious colorful cocktails in our Davis and Coupe Glasses. We chose these pieces for their clean shape, contrasting the vintage-inspired Hob Nob Glassware used at each table. We also loved the fun colors of the beverages as well as edible florals!

A well-planned Nashville Themed outdoor party is likely to include refreshing cocktails. And in Nashville, you’ll most definitely find bourbon!

Of course, don’t forget to keep it stocked with elegant glassware, like our classic Monaco Rock Glasses.
Fire pits just burn with ambiance! Guests love to gather around our Stone Round Fire Pit to perch on Rustic Benches or Chocolate Poufs.

It should be no surprise that with the popularity of the show Bridgerton we’re seeing an uptick in Cottagecore event design. Romantic and regent, this style is a throwback to simpler times and elevated design. Meaning luxe textiles, rich colors, and dainty details that would impress members of high society. To help you host a party that feels like a timeless period drama, take a look at our Cottagecore inspired event rentals.
If you want to impress guests with your Bridgerton inspired event design then a luxe lounge is a must-have. During this period cocktail hours were the WAY to stay up-to-date on the latest gossip! Easily create a comfortable and memorable area for socializing with our vintage-inspired furniture. A velvet sofa, such as Fern, is always a winner, featuring a rich color and texture. Or opt for the more period appropriate Everly, with a shapely back. For a complete look, don’t forget extra seating, like our Bamboo Arm Chairs or fun Turkish Rug Ottoman. Topped off with any of our classic Vintage Rugs!
A cocktail hour requires drinks, served up in regal glassware. It’s always fun to receive a refreshing cocktail served up in an elegant vintage-inspired glass. If you’re wanting to incorporate a touch of color into your tablescape, we recommend our colored goblets, available in Amber and Green. Or for a more timeless Cottagecore inspired event design, try our stunning Audrey Gold Rim Glassware. Then there is a newer addition to our lineup, Monaco Glassware, of which the champagne and water goblets are our favorite. For an especially impressive display, don’t forget to grab a Bar Cart or Bookcase.
Of course for dinner you’ll need equally impressive serving ware! We offer a wide selection of aristocracy approved china and flatware. A popular choice is our mismatched Heirloom China, which looks stunning when stacked. Or, go for a more high end vibe when you feature our gold embellished china, such as Hamlet or Ophelia. Our personal favorite however is Darcy, which has a dainty shape fitting for a more whimsical event. And to keep it simple, all of these pieces looks beautiful with both our Austin Gold and Fresno Matte Gold Flatware.

In 2021 we saw a shift towards organic event design, featuring natural yet timeless colors and vintage-inspired rentals. A theme that we hope will carry over into the new year, especially for galas, fundraisers and other formal events! If this is a trend that you favor or a style you aim to embrace, check out the details from the annual Heritage Ball for some organic luxe gala inspiration.
A Lush Grand Entrance
A great way to set the tone for an event is with a coordinated grand entrance. Guests were welcomed to the Heritage Foundation Ball with a lush Boxwood Wall Backdrop. Here, sponsors of the event were featured. However, it also doubled as a photo opportunity! The lush green wall beautifully tied into the organic luxe theme that awaited guests.
Green & Gold Tablescapes
As the Heritage Ball is based around a formal seated dinner so beautiful tablescapes are a must. To create an organic look at this event, we featured mismatched tables and place settings. Starting with both round and rectangular tables, dressed in a range of green and ivory tablecloths, as well as subtle floral patterns. A touch of velvet here and there lent a luxe look, as did our classic Chiavari dinner chairs. Each place setting consisted of a Glass Charger with a Gold Rim, Abby Flatware, Ophelia Salad Plates, and Pure Glassware.
Custom Stocked Bars
Personal touches are essential to make any event memorable. And for this organic luxe gala, we featured our custom Harpeth Bar with a fun floral print across the front! To accommodate the large guest count, the bar was flanked by Franklin White Antique Bars and Franklin Black Antique Bars. And as always, each bar was well stocked with a beautiful selection of glassware, including a mix of wine glasses and our Davis Glassware.
Luxe Retro Lounge Areas
Surrounding each bar was a mix of comfy luxe lounge areas. By strategically placing these throughout the event space, guests were encouraged to mingle! They starred a mix of retro and modern rentals. Including our Every Sofa and Chair, Fern Velvet Sofa, and Blanche Coffee Table. Meanwhile, our Charleston Bistro Tables with marble tops were a great option for those who preferred to remain standing.
Elegant Staging for Live Entertainment
Of course, we can’t forget staging, as this event had several speakers and live entertainment. A facade was created with beautiful green and gold drapery, and for the podium, we opted for a contemporary Acrylic piece. And if you have live music you have to have a dance floor! So to complement the luxe look, we decided to feature our classic Black and White Dance Floor.
Thank you to Mindy Thornton Photography for sharing the photos from this event with us!
