In 2022 we brought a lot of trends to fruition, from micro-weddings and backyard gatherings, to boho and retro-inspired rentals, as well as neutral and earth-toned color palettes. But now it’s time to look to the future! Today we’re going to take a look at some of the anticipated 2022 event trends, so that you can start planning your best gathering yet.
We saw a snippet of this trend in 2021, with opulent garden parties. But in 2022, we’re taking it to the next level with set ups inspired by the hit series Bridgerton, also known as Cottagecore. For this event style, we’re expecting pastel-rich color palettes, luxe textures, and vintage-inspired furniture.
Start with memorable tablescapes, featuring unique colors and fun rentals. For example, our Fern or Sea Glass velvet linens, or more decade appropriate Blue Kensington print. Top them off with our mismatched Heirloom China, or break up all the prints with our dainty Darcy China. The best choice for flatware is our versatile Abby or Sophia flatware. Finally, incorporate a splash of texture with our Green or Amber Goblets.
If you’re hosting an accurate event, then you’ll also need an equally impressive cocktail hour setup – high-society gatherings were all about mingling! Rent our Franklin Antique White Bar and a lounge to match. Such as our Fern Velvet Sofa, a set of Everly Chairs, and our Rhodes Coffee and side tables. Cocktail tables are also available for those who prefer to remain standing room!
Due to a large number of couples postponing their nuptials in 2021, sequel weddings will be a hit in 2022. That is, a big party following an intimate ceremony. Which can also be used following a vow renewal, or any type of post-pandemic celebration. These events will be focused on living in the moment, so they don’t have to be luxe – but they can be!
At these events, we’ll want to help create a small and cozy feel, which can be achieved with soft textures and warm colors. Think earthy, natural tones, like Terra Cotta or Rust. For a ceremony, start with our classic White or Fruitwood Folding Chairs and line the aisle with mismatched cowhide rugs.
For your reception, as well as any other small dinners, you’ll want to create cozy tablescapes and lounge areas where people can gather. Start with one of our beautiful Farm Tables paired with a neutral-colored runner, in Ivory or Natural Sahara. Next, feature simple serving ware, such as our Artisan or Earthen Alabaster China. For some fun pops of color, consider our Amber Goblets and elegant velvet napkins in Spice or Cameo Blush. Easily create a complementary lounge with our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs.
Mocktails & Sober Cocktails
Wellness is a priority for a large amount of the population at the start of a new year. And to help you and your guests achieve that goal throughout the year, we recommend upping your mocktail game! Which is easy to achieve with our wide selection of gorgeous glassware rentals. For this 2022 event trend, grab some of our favorites, like our Audrey Gold Rim Glassware and Whimsical Cybil Glassware. If you want a more colorful look, go with our Colored Glassware in a Meridian Blue and Smoke.
At Southern Events, we’re excited to help you continue to celebrate with these 2022 event trends! A reminder, however, that as we see an increase in gatherings our rentals will book up faster than ever. Be sure to secure your rentals as soon as possible to ensure that the pieces you love the most will be available at the time of your event. Reach out today, at firstname.lastname@example.org!

With beautiful weather and stunning foliage, there’s no better time to host an outdoor wedding than the fall. Keeping reading to get inspired by fall garden weddings at CJ’s Off the Square. This outdoor wedding venue in Franklin, Tennesse is a beauty, where our team has enjoyed several opportunities to help couples design the fall wedding of their dreams. From which we’ve compiled some of our favorite color palettes and designs, featuring our modern event rentals.
Blush & Brown
A subtle palette, blush and brown are a trendy color palette for the fall that perfectly complements the season. It’s especially popular amongst brides who want a bohemian theme. While pink is feminine, brown (and white) will lend a timeless look. With this simple palette, you’ll want to add dimension via texture. Like how the team at Petal & Fields decorated our Metal Ceremony Ring with pampas grass. For the reception and bistro tables, feature a mix of linens like our Light Pink Etched Velvet and Bloom Chiffon Runner. To keep the look modern, feature fun modern furniture, such as our Mid Century White Barstools.

If your goal is a timeless fall wedding, then you can’t go wrong with neutrals. Colors like white, ivory, and brown are beautiful, plus they’ll complement the seasonal foliage. This fall wedding featured a range of warm neutral shades, that lent a timeless rustic look. For this design, we recommend opting for detailed serving ware, so that your tables aren’t too plain. Consider the following tablescape with vintage inspiration, created using our Hob Nob Glassware, White Round China, and Belmont Chargers. To complement this table, we selected our elegant Cross-Back Chairs. Just don’t forget outdoor seating that will allow your guests to fully enjoy the outdoors, like our Sand Sutton Collection!
Cool Blue Hues
A unique color palette for the fall, cool blue hues are often used for winter. But, they can provide some fun contrast next to the warm-toned foliage! The key to pulling off this palette is making sure that you incorporate some ivory or brown, versus just white. For example, check out this icy tablescape featuring our Alabaster China, London Fog Velvet Linens, White Chiffon Runners, and Bentwood Antique Chairs. The same applies to the lounge are we designed for the outdoor cocktail hour. Our Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa is paired with Adeline Dining Chairs and Echo Silver Mirror Side Tables.

Trends and Inspiration
Garden weddings are popular themes. As we sit and dream with couples, we hear their love for the whimsical, charming, and romantic (pretty much the definition of how a bride wants to feel on her wedding day) feel of this theme. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of seeing garden weddings come together in a myriad of ways, and we have fallen in love all over again with the look and feel of this theme.
A growing trend for 2020 is a modern take on this classic trend: modern garden weddings. By drawing from modern inspirations, these classically gorgeous weddings are transformed into sleek, sophisticated celebrations that are incredibly chic.
Sleek and chic
This modern take on garden weddings can be achieved by bringing in sleek metals, acrylic furniture, and geometric shapes that contrast dramatically with the freeform nature of, well, nature.

A little velvet never hurt
Masculine elements, such as monochromatic color schemes and bold colors create contrast perfectly against soft florals and greenery, achieving a modern take on the romantic garden wedding. All white or all black furniture against a dreamy, floral aesthetic is both masculine and modern. A little velvet never hurts, either.
We adore taking lovely decor pieces and transforming them by creating interactive designs that deliver jaw drops from the guests and serve a purpose. In this case, our Boxwood Wall shows up to look gorgeous, serve champagne, and show up as a backdrop for photo-op perfection.
