One of the premier charity events in Tennessee, the Phoenix Ball is a black tie gala benefiting Cumberland University. This year’s theme was Draped In Decadence: Masked in Mystery, featuring our luxe gold & ivory gala rentals. Keep reading to get inspired for your own fundraiser or gala.
A Grand Event Entrance
Upon arriving at the venue, guests were welcomed inside via a red carpet. To create a more elegant entrance, the walls were lined with white draping. Our Loren Gold Bistro Table was set up to greet guests, along with some bubbly! The Gold Boxwood Wall was decorated with white shelving for flutes and a custom neon sign, making for a fun photo op.
Gold & Ivory Tablescapes
Matching the theme, the dinner tables were created using gold and ivory serving ware. To make the most of the space, we used a mix of round and rectangular tables, along with our classic Gold Chiavari Chairs. They were dressed in coordinated linens, including Gold Furrow, Ivory Pearl Shalimar, and Victorian Gold Luxe. Each place setting featured a gold or silver charger, along with our stunning Ophelia or Hamlet China, and Austin Flatware.
Luxe & Comfy Lounges
For any fundraiser or gala to be a success, you need comfy areas for guests to relax and converse. Throughout the event space, we created a range of small and large lounges. The largest being our neutral Pearce Lounge, complemented with the sleek Blanche Coffee Table. Smaller areas included a pair of Fantasma Acrylic Chairs and a trio of Cheval Gold Mirror Side Tables. And our always popular white leather Mercer Collection!
Spaces for Entertainment
The focal point of the gala was an expansive white dance floor set to our Harpeth Stage Facade. Set to the beautiful white drapery and crystal curtains, it was a stunning setting for dancing & celebrating. On either side, bars were also accessible. And they were stocked with a variety of classic glassware, including Martini and Highball Glasses, plus Champagne Flutes.
Custom Bar & Food Displays
With such a large event space, we wanted to ensure that food and drinks were easily accessible from any point. In addition to being welcomed with champagne, guests could access a bar both indoors and outdoors. Our elegant white Harpeth bars were outfitted with a custom insert to match the gold & ivory gala theme. A pair of gold bar back shelves were also used to display some sweet treats and was adjacent to a small coffee bar.
A special shout out to Phindy Studios for sharing the photos from this fabulous event!

Southern Events was delighted to contribute to the 43rd 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. The theme for this year’s gala came from a visit by the event chair to NYC – she was inspired by the simple refinement of an upscale New York restaurant. A monochromatic color palette of white & gray mixed with metallic accents and architectural decor created an elegantly chic space to raise funds and celebrate for the 700 plus guests in attendance.
The event featured a wide range of inventory items including our Mercer Lounge Furniture, Ghost Chairs & Barstools, Gold & Nickel Grey Velour Benches, London Loveseat, Eiffel Chairs, Conga Gold Drum Side Tables, Black Franklin Bars, White Silver Leaf & Granite Grey Shantung Linens, Darcy Bone China, Abby Flatware, Madison Glassware, Gold Chiavari Chairs, and both our Black & White Dance Floor as ell as our New England Plank Dance Floor.
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! Thanks to Phindy Studios for their beautiful photos of the event

Cocktails, seersucker stripes and good ‘ol southern fun were the name of the game at the Seriously Seersucker party for O’More College of Design, held at their historic Abbey Leix Mansion. Southern Events had the pleasure of providing rentals for this event in September, which benefits the college’s scholarship fund. Our Vienna White Leather Couch and Chairs made a chic lounge while guests of the patron party to enjoy a delicious bite (served on our White Square China) and a shot of Battlefield Bourbon (in our Sterling Shot Glasses). Later a yummy dinner was served and more cocktails enjoyed prompting everyone to dance the night away on our Checkerboard Dance Floor. A fun time had by all!
