In Style: Blue-Hued Winter Wonderland Parties
Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
Winter wonderland parties are where it’s at, with a wintry white color scheme, rows of cozy candles, and lots of twinkling lights. Bring the magic of the outdoors inside when you create a glittering wonderland that is equal parts chic and nostalgic. Learn how you can host a beautiful ice-inspired event with our blue party rentals, from luxe lounge furniture to bold velvet linens.
Elegant Ice-Inspired Serving Ware
Serving up dinner and/or drinks? We’ve got the perfect serving ware for a festive ice-inspired celebration! For a chilly winter vibe, we recommend sticking to silver accented serving ware. Like a Glass Charger with Silver Rim or Silver Round Lacquer Charger. On top, stack crisp White Round China or Earthen Alabaster China, for a softer look. If you prefer to spice things up, our Carrera Marble Dinner Plates are super luxe. Or, consider Onyx Earthen China and Noir Matte Black Flatware for a moody modern touch! When it comes to glassware, go simple. Choose a clear glass that aligns with your style, whether it be our quirky Cybil Champagne Flutes or vintage-inspired Monaco Water Goblets.
Luxe Linens & Seating
Solid foundations are essential for a stylish dinner table. We stock a variety of luxurious linens in an array of colors – blue included! For a modern luxe look, feature bright blue hues such as Ice Blue Poly or Light Blue Pindot. If you prefer a more cozy vibe, consider dark blue linens made of ultra-plush velvet – say a classic Navy Blue or cool London Fog. Just don’t forget napkins! You will also need chairs, which we have a fun selection of. Pair bright fun cocktail tables with Mid-Century White Barstools, for a trendy retro accent. Or go simple and elegant, with our Antique White Bentwood Chairs. Our favorite choice is Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs. They look like slick ice under the right lighting (don’t worry, they’re much more comfortable)!
Cozy Winter Lounge Areas
Winter events can feel cold without a cozy lounge! We have everything you need to create a stylish space for guests to sit back and relax. Velvet sofas, trendy armchairs, and plush rugs! Start with a focal point, such as a large sofa or loveseat. The Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa is a fan-favorite, as is our Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa. Next, grab a set of stylish chairs, such as the sleek Acrylic Fantasma Side Chairs or retro White Eiffel Arm Chair. Or the accompaniments to the mentioned sofas. You will also need a place for guests to set drinks or appetizers. The Echo Mirror Side Table features bright silver, or opt for the more down-to-earth Wood Distressed Side Table.

SOUTHERN GOOD: 2015 Heritage Ball
Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
Southern Events was delighted to contribute to the 42nd annual Heritage Ball at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park in Franklin this September. The Heritage Ball is the historic city’s longest running black-tie event, and underscores the Heritage Foundation‘s efforts to preserve the architectural, geographic and cultural heritage of Franklin and Williamson County. As we mentioned in our Client Inspiration post last week, this year’s theme was “Rhapsody in Blue,” inspired by the famous Gershwin classic. More than 700 guests dined at tables lined with our Sapphire Pintuck Linens, Austin Gold Flatware, and our NEW Hamlet + Ophelia Gold-Rimmed China Collections. The event also featured several of our newest furniture pieces, which we’ve captioned below alongside their photos. The vision for this event came to life even more beautifully than we planned! Thanks to all who made this gorgeous event possible, and to those dedicated to preserving Franklin’s rich history.
