In the heat of summer, there is nothing quite like a garden party – whether you are celebrating with family, friends, or even coworkers! An intimate celebration outdoors is the perfect way to spend an afternoon, with light bites, and tasty drinks gathered around a lawn game or two. Get inspired on how to host a colorful fete when you check out this city chic garden party at CJ’s Off the Square!
Summer Champagne Wall!
You don’t have to host a huge celebration in order to incorporate a ‘wow’ factor. Our boxwood walls are a simple addition that will uplevel any event. It is a fun way to greet your guests with appetizers or a cocktail, as seen with this popsicle champagne wall. Or, they can visit it later, to find a sweet treat or dessert. Like fresh donuts and milk or coffee! And, since they are easy to customize you can incorporate elegant decorations such as a neon sign or vibrant florals.
Chic Cocktail Lounges
A must-have for a cocktail hour is a social area, where guests can sit down and sip on their drinks for a while. Consider a bistro table or lounge areas, or even both! Feature a combination of our sofas, chairs, and accent tables to create a chic setup. Consider our Everly Sofa and Chairs, paired with a set of our Capriano Marble and Copper Accent Tables. We also recommend including a few of our colorful event rentals, whether you opt for a Vintage Rug or swap out the Everly Chairs for our Saylor Navy Velvet Chairs.
Don’t forget to grab a selection of our beautiful glassware for rent – to serve up colorful fruit-infused cocktails! If you won’t have a bar and would prefer a self-serve drink station, our Gold Beverage Jars are a stylish way to dish up big batch cocktails.
Intimate Yet Luxe Dining
If your goal is a true garden dinner party, with more than just appetizers, you’ll also need some elegant tablescapes. We have a variety of beautiful tables and linens for rent, an essential foundation for colorful event design. Start with our Kennedy Fawn or Dusty Blue Etched Velvet Linens. Pastels will lend color but allow vibrant floral centerpieces to shine! If you like the look of more layers, top it off with any of our chiffon runners. For serving ware, keep it simple but don’t be afraid of some texture. Check out our Rattan White Wash Chargers, which pair beautifully with any of our white china. For napkins, any of our luxe linens will do. We also recommend incorporating some pieces featuring metallic colors, whether it be our Austin Gold or Brushed Copper Flatware, for that chic touch. Maybe even our Vera Floral China!

To help you host a party that feels like a timeless period drama, take a look at our Cottagecore inspired event rentals.

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.

Functional and stylish rentals, Southern Events offers a range of area rugs for events & weddings. Although simple, a beautiful decorative rug will lend to an all-around cohesive event space. Whether they are used to line an aisleway or placed beneath the featured furniture. You go to major lengths to decorate and furnish the space in a way that aligns with your event, and the floor is the foundation! Take a look at our in-stock area rugs and how you can feature one or several at your upcoming Nashville event.
Tie it All Together
Area rugs are more than just decoration. Take for example the use of layered rugs as an aisle runner. Our Brown & White Cowhide Rug and Dark Brown Cowhide Rug are perfect for a trendy urban desert wedding ceremony. Meanwhile, our vintage-inspired rugs look stunning for a cozy, boho-themed affair. Feel free to layer them up or use one standalone alongside a ceremony backdrop.

Frame a Space
Rugs assist in creating a frame in which to place the furniture. A trick that is especially useful for social areas, like a cocktail lounge. Consider using a rug to lead guests from the bar to a lounge area. It will help prevent your guests from huddling around the bar and encourage them to sit down, get comfortable, and stay for a while. See how our clients have used a range of area rugs for events & weddings, including our Navy and Aqua Rugs.

A Cohesive Design
Similar to cocktail lounges, rugs can be placed beneath standalone furniture to help create a more cohesive aesthetic. Without one, it can feel as though your furniture may float away! A rug can also help tie different areas together that would otherwise look out of place. Featured below, our vintage Blue-Red Rugs were used to accent a whiskey-barrel bar and create a charming buffet area. And to create a stylish outdoor cocktail area, it was placed beneath our Loren Gold Bistro Table.

Emerald and gold speaks to opulence and set the tone for the event design at the 13th Annual Rutherford Society Gala.
