On Trend, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
With regal and royal trending in event design, we’re all about appreciating the finer things in life – including black-tie dinner parties! This theme is perfect for adding an upscale feel to any celebration, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, reunion, corporate achievement, and so on. Plus, planning a formal event is easier than ever, thanks to our elegant in-stock event rentals. Check out our serving ware, furniture, and decor that can be used to elevate your tablescape and impress your dinner guests!
Elegant Serving Ware
Black tie event design is all about luxury! For the table, we offer a range of stylish serving ware that suits any palette and style. White China is always a good start, whether you prefer Round plates or a more charming design, like Darcy. For a more moody table, opt for Earthen Onyx or Stone China. And should you prefer a more glam look, check out pieces that feature metallics. Such as our Glass Charger with a Gold Rim or Medallion Gold Glass Charger. If you want a touch of color, take a look at our gold accented Laguna or Coronado China.
Just don’t forget to grab matching flatware! Our Gold Austin and Abby Flatware are always popular. Meanwhile, the Noir Matte Black and Como Flatware are edgy yet stylish.
Although your own dining chairs will do just fine, swapping your seating for a special evening can make a big impact. It also makes for more cohesive black-tie dinner parties! We offer a variety of stylish seating options, from more traditional designs to unique contemporary pieces. Our Harlin Dining Chairs are ideal for luxe Southern-inspired gatherings, as our the Adeline Chairs. Whereas the Acrylic Carrigan Side Chairs offer a more modern but equally formal look! Then there is the always popular Chiavari Chairs, available in four beautiful colors, which look stunning in any setting.
Hosting a black-tie wedding or black-tie corporate event? Don’t fret! We have plenty of seating in stock for small parties as well as large gatherings.
The ‘Wow’ Factor
While most black-tie event themes entail neutral palettes and elegant serving ware, we love a ‘wow’ factor. In fact, we encourage it! Little details that will have guests talking, snapping pics, and admiring the thought that went into the design. It can be as simple as quirky glassware, like our always popular Cybil Wine Glasses or Champagne Flutes. Or luxurious velvet linens, in a deep Magnolia or eye-catching Merlot – they won’t be able to keep their hands off it! Another luxe addition are stylish centerpieces like our Davis Glass Cylinders, paired with greenery and candles. Or our contemporary Acrylic Rectangle Container.

Real Wedding: Boho Luxe Inspiration at Saddlewood Farms
Nashville Venues, On Trend, Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
If you’ve been dreaming of an event that is equal parts moody and elegant, then you won’t want to overlook the boho luxe style. Featuring beautifully contrasting colors and geometric details. Keep reading for some boho luxe inspiration from a recent wedding we participated in at Saddlewood Farms in Tennessee.
Hosted on the grass lawn, the wedding ceremony was a classic bohemian affair with luxe decor. Guests were seated in our simple White Folding Chairs. While the aisle was lined with Cowhide Rugs and arrangements featuring dried palms and fresh roses. For a backdrop, the two opted for a solid black Triangle Wedding Arbor. It was the perfect choice to ensure that the two stood out against the lush forest.
Afterward, they retired to the large reception bar, where string lights dripped from the ceiling and walls. The space was practically glowing, with the most beautiful soft light. Guests were immediately greeted by our white Harpeth Curved Bar, making it approachable from any side. For a one-of-a-kind look, don’t forget to opt for a custom bar sign!
The dinner tables were outfitted in slick black linens with short floral centerpieces that lent a fun touch of texture. They were set with our Classic White Square China, Hammered Flatware, and Davis glassware. For linens, they opted for our stunning Azalea Poly, a moody yet feminine color. The couple’s sweetheart table was equally luxe, featuring our Fruitwood Farm Table with Ghost Acrylic Armless Chairs. Davis Glass Cylinders sat on the floor with pillar candles, making it especially romantic.
Of course, what is a wedding without designated areas for mingling? Flanking the bar was our sleek white Mercer Lounge. It was topped with matching florals and soft pillows – to make it extra cozy! To ensure guests could make full use of the lush event space, other small lounges sat just outside the barn. Including small accent tables, where people could set their food and drinks. They were decorated with pure black linens that manicured lawn.

Romantic Old-World Elegance | 2017 Heritage Ball
Southern Events Products, Trends and Inspiration
Southern Events was honored to be invited back to the Heritage Ball at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park in Franklin this September. The Heritage Ball plays a proud part in the preservation of historic Downtown Franklin, and is the longest-running annual event in local history! This year’s lavish ball featured several of our rentals, styled to add an ornate old-world elegance to this Southern tradition.
Most popular rentals, like the Cross-Back Chairs and our London Loveseats, were combined with brand new pieces like our Cecilia Floral Matte Satin Linens and Winstead Gray Tufted Bench for a romantic black-tie affair. Our large selection of furniture created several lounge areas designed to enhance conversation by producing pockets of comfortable seating throughout the venue.
Guests were teased of the romantic vision to come with a lounge featuring our Santorini Couch, Rose Pillows, black flooring with floral details and potted trees in the entry. Looking up, chandeliers with lush garland enhanced the old-world romantic affair. A variety of lounge areas were situated throughout the perimeters of the space, mixing comfortable couches, vintage chairs, and stylish loveseats with sleek and modern side tables for an ornate design. Guests were welcome to grab a drink at one of the many 8 ft Franklin Bars – each accented by a matching mini 4 ft bar topped with a lush centerpiece.
Guests dined in comfort in our artisan Harlin Dining Chairs, which we paired with our architecturally striking Cross-Back Chairs for added texture. Our new Cecilia Floral Matte Satin Linen and Blush Satin Linen draped gracefully amongst cocktail rounds, while Charcoal Dupioni Satin, Wisteria Matte Satin and Russet Satin Linens were used on dining tables for a uniquely elegant color palette. Attendees were treated to a stunning tablescape with modern elegance and lavish heirloom details thanks to our Austin Flatware, Darcy China, and Medallion Gold Glass Chargers, paired with our striking Pure Glassware. After dinner, guests danced the night away on our Plank Wood Dance Floor.
This stunning event was a dream to bring together, and the reality was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Many, many thanks to the Heritage Society, gala chair, event staff and all of those who came together to celebrate Franklin’s history and future! Special thanks to Phindy Studios for capturing this event so beautifully. We hope to see you all again next year!
