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.

Events and Style Shoots, On Trend, Trends and Inspiration
Nothing beats the classic elegance of black-and-white wedding design! This timeless color combination is perfect for any season and creates a sleek and sophisticated ambiance for your big day. Get inspired by a styled shoot hosted at Diamond Creek Farm, featuring stylish event rentals from Southern Events Online. From chic acrylic seating to bold linens, we have everything you need to host an elevated black-and-white wedding.
Simple Chic Ceremony
For this styled shoot, we aimed to showcase the beauty of a modern black-and-white wedding. Starting with an elegant outdoor ceremony! Hosting outdoors is all about letting nature shine. At Diamond Creek, this entails the sprawling Tennessee farmlands. Just past the veranda, a manicured lawn overlooking the countryside is a fitting setting for a vow exchange. Ceremony seating consisted of our Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs. The clear material is chic and it doesn’t take away from the view. The outdoor space is elevated with a floral backdrop made of white flowers and dark greenery. An equally stunning alternative, consider our Fiona Mantle with the same flower arrangement. Off to the side, a bistro table is dressed up with Black Nova Linens for a live painter.
Luxe Black and White Lounge
An elegant black and white lounge area with some grey accents is the perfect addition to any wedding. An essential for a cocktail hour! This type of setup creates a chic and sophisticated space for guests to relax and socialize in. Start with our luxurious Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa and the matching Armchairs. To frame the space we always recommend a rug, and in this case, our Black-Silver Rug is perfect. It pairs beautifully with a set of Echo Mirror Silver Side Tables. If you like a little contrast, place a Gold Hammered Coffee Table in the center. Or you can keep to the color scheme and opt for pewter.
The perfect addition to black-and-white wedding decor is a touch of greenery! If you aren’t hosting outdoors, our Boxwood Walls are an elegant and natural addition. Use it as a backdrop for the cake-cutting ceremony, or to place behind the sweetheart table. It is easy to customize, whether you prefer fresh flowers or a neon sign.
The table was set with a stunning combination of black-and-white elements. We used a Grey Goose tablecloth as the base, complemented by a romantic Dove Grey Table Runner. The use of soft grey linens allowed the pure white flower centerpieces to shine! On top, we placed Glass Chargers with a Black Rim and Earthen Onyx China to create contrast. Matched by Noir Matte Black Flatware and solid Black Poly Napkins. Cybil Wine Glasses and Champagne flutes were a fun and funky addition that lent a contemporary flair. Complete with the same acrylic seating from the ceremony, this tablescape exudes modern luxury. Thanks to the natural palette it is also versatile! It would look just as beautiful for a minimalist celebration in a modern event barn as it would for a black-tie wedding in a grand ballroom.
Let our team help you plan a modern wedding that will stand the test of time! Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org, or view our full range of rentals in the catalog. For more wedding inspiration, take a look at this Modern Celestial Wedding.

Outdoor parties are the perfect way to celebrate any occasion, from birthdays and weddings to corporate events and backyard gatherings. To make your event truly special, consider renting unique outdoor party decor and props that will create a memorable experience for your guests. Take a look at some of our unique inventory items, perfect for creating fun focal points, stylish backdrops, food and drink displays, or social areas, that are sure to impress.
Photo-Worthy Outdoor Party Decor & Backdrops
Every event needs a photo backdrop! A place where guests can snap a photo as a keepsake or to share on social media. Our Boxwood Wall is a beautiful and versatile piece of decor. It can be used to create a backdrop for luxurious photographs, dressed up with drapery, balloons, or fresh flowers. Or you can create an interactive focal point, such as a champagne wall! These same walls can also be used to create a stylish seating chart or welcome sign.
Alternatively, check out our beautiful Fiona Ivory Mantle. Whether it is placed against a wall or standalone, it can also be used as a backdrop or fun focal point. Adorn the mantle with flowers and the base with lanterns, and it is perfect as a backdrop for opening presents at a birthday or baby shower. An equally stunning option is our Wrought Iron Arch. It would look stunning for a garden party, whether you choose to feature it as an entryway to hang a banner. For a more elegant look, weave our Chiffon Runner or fresh flowers through the metal lattice!
Outdoor Drink & Food Displays
One of our favorite ways to make a statement at any event is with a stylish drink or food display. It’s a simple but effective way to elevate a buffet area or to serve up favors to guests! The most popular piece in our inventory of outdoor party decor is our whiskey barrels, with an acrylic or barn wood top. It’s the perfect makeshift bar or grazing table! But you can also use it in tandem with a variety of our cake stands to create a multi-level display of appetizers or desserts. Or create a stylish buffet when you mix and match our beverage dispensers and chafing dishes.
A close second to any of our whiskey barrel bars is our Market Cart. Simple and bright white, it is a chic piece ideal for baby and bridal showers! Use this piece as a welcome area for a ticketed event, as a designated space for presents, or to place favors for guests to grab as they are exiting. If you would prefer a prop with space for custom signage, for a birthday party or themed event, opt for a Ticket Booth.
If you’re hosting a wedding, anniversary, or corporate event, champagne is a must! Toast to another year, or a year of big achievements, with a trendy champagne tower. You can create a beautiful tablescape with any of our linens and a tower created using our Gatsby Champagne Coupes. Or, if you aren’t a fan of a glass tower, feature our White 6-Tier Serving Tower. Sleek and modern, it will make hosting a toast a breeze!
Trendy Outdoor Lounge Areas
Want a focal point for your event that is not just aesthetic? You need a lounge area – maybe two! We stock a large variety of trendy sofas, armchairs, accent tables, and rugs to create a lounge area that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. Start with any of our sofas, like our classic Bennett Leather or the retro-inspired Fern Velvet. Armchairs will increase the amount of seating available, as will any of our poufs or ottomans. If your lounge is being used during a cocktail hour with drinks or light bites, be sure to grab a set of accent tables. And, finally, don’t overlook a rug; whether you prefer cowhide or vintage. It will beautifully frame the space, whereas without one it can leave your lounge feeling incomplete.
Want to feature one or several of our outdoor party decor or props at your upcoming event? Contact our team for help, or if you need additional ideas. Plus, be sure to check out our new tent packages, curated to include everything you need for a stylish outdoor celebration; because planning an outdoor party doesn’t have to be a hassle! Looking for an outdoor event theme that is fresh and fun? Get inspired by this classic cookout party!

Garden-Inspired Table Linens
Nothing freshens up an outdoor table setting like a pop of color and texture from high-quality table linens. Your linens can provide the perfect backdrop for your table settings and arrangements. For garden weddings, we love our richly textured Moss Green Crush and Velvet Linens, as well as our warm and rustic Havana Cafe neutral napkins and feminine Chiffon Runners.
Intimate Lounge Areas
When it comes to a garden wedding, we love the simple, feminine charm of an intimate lounge area! Mix and match our elegant and cozy furniture, to create a welcoming place for guests to sit and stay for a while. Alongside pieces such as our sofas & loveseats, be sure to feature a few Trellis or Capri White Side Tables. Both are elegant and will add a sophisticated, feminine feel to your wedding lounge!
Rain or shine, your big day is going to be beautiful. That’s why we encourage you to take away the stress and enjoy the shade (or shelter) from underneath one of our elegant tents. Featuring heavy-duty aluminum frames and block-out vinyl tops, you and your guests will stay cool in the shade beneath our Peak Frame and Hexagon Tents! Decorate them with billowing drapery and fresh flowers for a wonderful and whimsical outdoor event.
Natural Wood Dance Floor
Dancing in the grass sounds like a wonderful time- until you remember that you and your friends will be wearing heels! Prevent any fashion faux-pas and keep the party going with our New England Wood Dance Floor. The natural wood finish makes a lovely addition to the party, adding function without interrupting the aesthetic.

Southern Events Party Rental Company has large quantities for the most massive parties and biggest balls in the south! For Carly and Wilson’s big day, the couple gathered hundreds of their friends and family to celebrate in grand style in the Tennessee countryside. We were honored to work with the teams at Firefly Events and Enchanted Florist to outfit The Barn at Sycamore Farms in style with some of our newest rentals, including our specialty event bar, the Harpeth!
Guests were welcomed into the luxe barn with our comfortable lounge furniture – the perfect spot to enjoy cocktails or take a seat while waiting for the ceremony to begin. Our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Santorini Off-White Loveseat were set around our popular Brown Barnwood Coffee Table – the perfect display of modern and rustic.
Our Boxwood Walls helped family and friends find their seats – we just loved how each escort card was thoughtfully placed! Guests were encouraged to grab a drink at one of our Harpeth 8 ft Curved Bars that was on display. And, yes, that’s a custom wedding monogram featured on the front. This personal touch goes a long way – whether it’s your wedding logo or company logo – Southern can add it!
Each specialty event bar was truly decked out with more than enough glassware for the hundreds of guests – those signature drinks looked mighty fine in our Gatsby Coupes.
Dinner featured our Fruitwood Chiavari Chairs with a comfortable ivory cushion at each place setting. Our traditional Abby Flatware was gorgeous and placed alongside the popular Darcy Bone China Charger, with a Pink Dinner Napkin to complete the design.
Thanks so much to Nyk and Cali for the gorgeous images!

There are good times to be had at the bar of any Nashville event, whether you’re looking for something refreshing or trying out the event’s signature cocktail. With several event bars in various sizes and designs to choose from, your Middle Tennessee event is not complete without a bar! Southern has so many event bars to choose from – here are some ideas on how to incorporate them at your next wedding or event in Nashville, Tennessee.
Want to chat with an event specialist about setting up your Franklin, Nashville, or Middle Tennessee event? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be so glad to help!
Bars on Display
Looking for a chic way to set up a display of beverages? Having your bar display refreshments in a buffet-style is something we love seeing at Nashville events. Our Harpeth Bar is the latest piece added to our catalog, with chic clean lines and stunning architecture. The recessed inset allows you to customize each bar to fit your event with your company logo, lite panels or floral inserts. Placing our favorite Cybil Glassware alongside bottles of refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic options allows guests to serve themselves at smaller events.
Another great option for using bars to display beverages is setting up infused water stations throughout the venue. Especially if you’re having an outdoor southern gathering, you’ll want to keep your guests hydrated! Having water options somewhere other than the main bar is a great way to help people stay refreshed without dealing with long lines. Our Acrylic Top with Fruitwood Column was gorgeous at this garden wedding styled shoot, and draped with our Bloom Chiffon Runner.
Whiskey Barrel Bars
Nothing says “Nashville Party” like Whiskey! Displaying fun desserts on a Whiskey Bar is a unique and fun way to incorporate southern fun with a sweet tooth. We’ve got plenty of pedestals to choose from, and our Wyatt Pedestal Cake Stands looks especially dreamy on a Whiskey Bar.
We also love setting up the Remington Bar Stools with Whiskey Barrel Bars to create extra high-top tables for the cocktail hour. This helps maximize your Nashville event venue space while adding a rustic touch. Add a lantern or two on top to create the design you desire – we’ve got plenty to choose from!
Franklin Bar Collection
If you’ve got lots of guests to care for, you’ll need multiple bars. Our Franklin Bars are perfect for the job – with 4ft and 8ft long bars with wood columns to match, you can easily mix and match to create the design and flow your event needs. And with their traditional, upscale look in a variety of finishes, the Franklin Bars are perfect for all your corporate, nonprofit, or traditional wedding needs.
Some of our favorite bar setups include two bars with a matching column in the middle, two or three bars side to side, or two bars creating an “L” shape at the corner of your venue – the perfect solution to long lines! With options in Antique White, Blackwood, Grayson, and Fruitwood you’re sure to find a Franklin Bar that fits.
Setting up stations around your event is a great way to keep crowds happy and hydrated. Adding minibars along the perimeter of the dance floor or just outside the cocktail area makes sure all guests can find something to sip on. Have these be a “beer only” or “non-alcoholic beverages only” bar, or display Our Franklin 4ft Bars look amazing at weddings, social events, fundraisers, non-profit events and corporate events in the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area!
Set the scene with rustic specialty bar, like the Bond 6ft Bar made of rustic refurbished wood. This one-of-a-kind bar is a great way to add character to your event.
Looking to create even more character at your Nashville event? The Boxwood Walls are a great way to add foliage to your party, creating walls where there aren’t any. Use it to add a background to your middle-of-the-room bar – your guests will love the greenery!
