Grand Entrance Essentials
First impressions matter, and a grand entrance will set the tone for the entire evening. Whether your event is black-tie or business casual, Southern Events has a stunning array of entrance essentials. Start by rolling out the red carpet, along with red rope and chrome stanchions to create the illusion of exclusivity. If you want to create an elongated entrance, pipe and drape make for an elegant hallway. Or, create a photo opportunity using Boxwood Walls, fitted with signage showcasing sponsors or donors – perfect for sharing online. Let us help you create an entrance that exudes sophistication and excitement!
Elegant Fundraiser Dining Tables
Dining is a central element of any corporate fundraiser, and your tables should not only accommodate your guests but also reflect the theme and purpose of your event. We offer a diverse range of dining table options, from classic round to elegant banquet tables. Or elevate your event tables with stylish linens and runners. Whether you prefer a bold look provided by the Black Nova or Blue Kensington Tablecloths. Or the more neutral vibe of a Natural Sahara Table Runner and Kennedy Ivory Tablecloths.
To create eye-catching place settings, we recommend servingware with a subtle metallic accent. Consider the Glass Chargers with Gold Rim, Athena China, and Austin Flatware. Or, for a luxe minimalist look, feature the Glass Mosaic China with Abby Flatware. Another way to elevate your corporate fundraiser is with unique seating. While we love the Gold Chiavari Chairs, the Harlin Dining and Acrylic Carrigan Side Chairs will elevate any event.
A Bar That Can Handle the Crowd
No successful fundraiser is complete without a bar! Namely, one that is large enough to handle the crowd. Southern Events stocks a variety of bars, in every shape and size, to ensure that you can serve your guests quickly. And to accommodate any event layout! Take a look at our Thompson Full Oval White Bar or opt for something smaller, like the customizable Harpeth Bar. Whether it’s signature cocktails or a selection of fine wines, we have the resources to keep the drinks flowing smoothly. Including a wide inventory of glassware, from simple rock glasses to champagne coupe glasses and contemporary wine glasses. Of course, to store it all we recommend that you consider elegant barback shelves. Or, help guests settle after a long night when you feature hot beverage dispensers and mugs for a self-serve coffee station.
Staging & Dance Floors
As the night progresses, entertainment becomes key. Ensure your guests have the space to dance and the perfect stage for any presentations or performances! We offer high-quality, professionally installed staging to keep speakers front and center. In addition to sleek podiums. Essential rentals for corporate fundraisers, whether you have an award show, silent auction, or raffle on the program.

A well-designed stage not only provides a focal point for speakers and presentations but also adds a touch of professionalism. Especially our Acrylic Podium! We can also provide skirts, for a more cohesive look. And to make the stage even more captivating, consider using our Boxwood Walls as backdrops. These versatile walls will add a touch of greenery and elegance – to avoid the mundane corporate vibe. However, they can also be customized to feature event sponsors or display important branding elements. As well as serve as a photo opportunity!
Lounge Areas for Networking
Networking is one of the primary benefits of attending a professional conference or convention. To give your attendees ample opportunity to foster connections, encourage mingling in lounge areas. Our event furniture includes plush sofas, cozy armchairs, and elegant accent tables. Perfect for attendees to unwind or mingle and network between sessions or during multi-day events. These pieces will allow them to take a break and recharge before diving back into the conference. Take a look at our curated Lounge Packages, or mix and match pieces to create a one-of-a-kind lounge. Just don’t forget to complete the look with a rug!
Cocktail Hour Essentials
End your conference on a high note with a stylish cocktail hour! Our event furniture for conferences includes bars and storage that are functional and will add a touch of sophistication to your gathering. Consider our contemporary Sorrento White Bar or the elegant Collins Black Wood Bar. Either of which paired beautifully with the Black Barback Shelf or Gold Bookcase. To complement the event bar, ensure you have on-trend glassware that suits your menu. From modern wine glasses to bold beaded tumblers, we have a wide selection to choose from. If needed, add on a set of cocktail tables where guests can comfortably enjoy their drinks.

In a post-pandemic world, the health and happiness of employees is a priority for many companies and business owners. A focus that your team and attendees will appreciate, especially during a conference, convention or corporate summit. Today we’ll share how you can create corporate wellness rooms to help maintain positive and motivated participants!
Create an Ambient Setting
The first step you’ll want to take when creating corporate wellness rooms is selecting a designated area or areas within your event space. We recommend selecting an area that is a ways away from the primary room in use so that your guests can fully escape the hustle and bustle – whether you are hosting a training session or an annual meeting. Once established, pipe and drape can be used to enclose a space. This will help create a more private and ambient setting, in which guests can sit back, relax, and recharge. Choose from a range of beautiful and calming colors, such as black, ivory and white. If you like, you can even designate this area as a quiet or non-tech space!
Within your wellness room, you’ll want some comforts that encourage guests to sit and stay for a while. Specifically, lounge areas where people can casually converse or even meditate for a time. Start with cozy neutral or warm colored furniture, like our Bennett Leather Sofa or Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa. Pair it with a set of accent chairs, like our beautiful Gloria Velvet Arm Chairs. Then, finish it off with a plush area rug and a set of matching coffee and side tables. Avoid any pieces that are too contemporary and might give off a cold feeling! Of course, you can also choose from our selection of beautiful lounge packages (we recommend #03 or #26). If you prefer, you can also create smaller areas using our bistro tables and bistro chairs.
Food & Beverage Stations
In addition to helping your guests relax you also want to help them recharge. A scrumptious food and beverage station will help keep them satiated and in tune for a long day of meetings or workshops. Start with an elegant display shelf, like our Black Bar Back Shelf – to store a selection of simple water goblets or other glassware. Nearby, keep refreshing cucumber water or similar beverages in a Glass Beverage Jar. Display snack foods, like fresh fruit or vegetables, in our white family-style service pieces for light on-the-go bites. Accompanied by simple white china! If you’ve been approved for alcoholic beverages, a stylish and well-stocked bar never hurt either.

The entrance to an event is a guest’s first impression of what’s to come! It will set the tone for the remainder of the event, and so it’s important to start things off on the right foot. Today, we’re sharing some of our in-stock rentals that can be used to create a grand event entrance.
Want to wow your guests? A carpeted entrance to your event is a sure way to do that. A red carpet is an easy way to lend a hint of old Hollywood glamour – regardless of the formality of the event! It will lend to the overall look and experience, making guests feel as though they are special and creating excitement for what lies in store. Of course, your carpet doesn’t have to be red! Feel free to feature your event or company colors like the grand event entrance done in blue and white below.

Stanchion & Rope
Along with a grand carpet entrance, you’ll want to rent stanchion and rope. Our Chrome Stanchions are a timeless addition that will help you maintain an orderly entrance. It is especially great for events that will require attendees to queue up or that are ticketed. You will also be able to choose between our Black Velour Rope and Red Velour Rope, depending on the theme or color palette featured at your event.
When you have a thoughtful theme or event design, vinyl appliques on your event flooring can be a unique way to welcome guests. Custom appliques can be added to our Black, White or Natural dance floors – doubling as entrance flooring- as part of your grand event entrance. Here we replicated the florals from the event invitation and linen pattern onto floor appliques. Also, consider showing off your new monogram to welcome wedding guests or brand at a product launch.

A popular way to decorate an entryway is with our lush Boxwood Walls. These customizable pieces can be decorated with details of sponsors, used as a photo op with a step and repeat, or simply act as decor. Alternatively, add an interactive twist by greeting guests with a cold refreshment! Our champagne/beverage shelves are an elegant and memorable way to welcome guests at the entrance of your event, whether it be a cocktail hour or seated dinner. They are available in two trendy colors, modern Fruitwood and classic white.

Company Retreats and Corporate Summits are an important and exciting part of any company’s culture. Whether you’re having a creative brainstorming summit with a small team, or a large conference with hundreds of attendees, Southern has great rentals and a huge quantity of everything you need!
Whoever is speaking at your company’s next event, you’ll want them to have a stage to share from. And if you’re looking at a creative location, sometimes it’s not obvious where exactly to have someone deliver their presentation. We provide staging for all kinds of venues, whether indoor or outdoor, to make it easy for all attendees to be able to hear and see.
Pipe and Draping
Add elegance and grandeur to your event with pipe and draping – a bonus when you add it in your company colors! We love how pipe and draping instantly elevates the design of any event, and when you’ve planned a large conference in a neutral space, it easily adds personality and reflects your company culture.
Lounge Furniture Packages
Lounges are the perfect way to break up an oversized space or provide your colleagues with a comfier place to mix and mingle. Create a professional looking lounge area with one of our many Lounge Packages – all of which can be added on seamlessly to any event’s design.

Rolling out the Red Carpet is a fun way to express gratitude to your team to show them how much you appreciate their work. We love how much fun guests have when they walk down – such a fun added touch!
Folding Screens and Stanchions
Folding Screens and Stanchions are another great way to break up a massive room design and control foot traffic. Think about different stations being set up (check in station, information station, etc) and how you’ll want to create good foot traffic flow and obvious signage. Prevent long lines from overwhelming with stanchions placed strategically, and have folding screens act as the backdrop to various stations creating a “room within a room” look without setting up a wall.
Unique Stage Seating
Looking for a way bring beautiful design to your company event? We love how our Bennett Sofa, Eiffel Chairs, Adeline Chairs, or other Vintage Chairs look on stage, or placed throughout key points.
Whatever corporate event your company is throwing next, Southern can help! Send us a shout at email@example.com and we’ll show you all the ways we can upgrade your next Nashville, Franklin, or Middle TN event.
