Skip the downtown crowds and opt for a moody modern New Year’s Eve party to ring in 2023 – we know, the year has flown by! Whether it’s a large corporate gala, casual holiday office party, or intimate countdown cocktail hour, we’ve got the perfect New Year’s Eve party rentals to host a memorable fete. Think plush modern retro furniture, luxe neutral linens, and a bar featuring the most divine glassware; for tasty themed drinks. Keep reading for ideas on everything from trendy tablescapes to lounge areas fit for a long night of sipping and sitting!
Moody Metallic Tables
So you’re hosting a seated dinner? Creating a moody modern New Year’s table is a breeze! Black is the color of choice for this celebration, but we like to add luxe touches where we can! The easiest way is serving ware featuring metallic accents – plates, glassware, flatware. Start with a set of our elegant tablecloths, in a solid black or with a subtle pattern, like Black Nova. If you prefer a brighter but equally elegant linen, Gold Furrow is a stunner. Top it off with a stack of china. Such as a Gold, Silver, or Black Rim Glass Charger and any of our Earthen Dinner Plates. Choose serving ware that complements existing metallics, whether it be our Gold Austin Flatware, Brooklyn Flatware, or Brushed Copper Flatware. For a spunky touch, include some fun modern glassware – Cybil or blue-hued Meridian Tumblers.
Cozy Countdown Lounge
A lounge (or two) are a must-have for New Year’s Eve. It will be a long night and to keep guests cozy you need a space where they can sit, sip, and mingle to their heart’s content! Our favorite modern moody setup starts with Regent Black Velvet Sofa and a set of Acrylic Ghost Arm Chairs. Pair it with our Capriano Marble and Copper Accent Tables, or a similar set. Another alternative is our Modular Pearce Lounge, which can be arranged as desired to fit your event space. Be sure to surround it with some layered rugs for an extra cozy vibe! For larger parties, we recommend adding in a sprinkling of bistro tables and barstools near the bar area.
Perfect Bar for Toasts
Speaking of bars, you will want one – whether you are serving cocktails or mocktails! Our Black Franklin Bar is a classic staple which you can accessorize with our Avenue Bar Back Shelving. Here you can stock bottles or display fanciful glassware. For smaller gatherings, grab our Gold Bar Cart for storage or a beverage service. When it comes to choosing glassware, you’ll want to offer an array of choices. Start with Gatsby Champagne Coupes for toasting. And Upton Glassware for bourbon or mocktails! If you’d like to wow guests with a champagne tower, our White 6-Tier Serving Tower is a must-have!
Soft & Moody Event Lighting
Candlelight sets the perfect mood for midnight festivities. Create intimate centerpieces using our Davis Glass Cylinders filled with candles and surrounded by a soft runner or greenery. Or feature votives in our Acrylic Rectangle Container. To warm up lounge areas, strategically scatter Oversized Lanterns. We have a variety of styles to choose from to complement different themes! Another fun option is to cozy up around our Hammered Rectangle Fire Pit! Just be sure to supply some plush pillows and afghans or blankets.

Sometimes less is more, and modern minimalist events prove just that! There is beauty to be found in simplicity, not to mention it often comes with a smaller decor budget. Less cluttered, modern minimalism can make it feel easier to breathe within your event space, without compromising style. Learn how to host a modern minimalist event when you take a look at our in-stock rentals that will lend a clean and timeless look.
To achieve a modern minimalist table, you’ll want to keep any decor simple and maintain as much open space as possible – perhaps stick to greenery! As for serving ware, opt for pieces that are sleek. Such as our Earthen China, available in 3 neutral colors, or Plain Glass China. Easily feature an elegant pop of metallics with our simple Austin Gold or Noir Matte Black Flatware. For a romantic minimalist table, feature a touch of color in your otherwise neutral palette with a set of our poly napkins. Perhaps in Ice Pink, Slate, or Lilac! Or, grab a velvet set for subtle texture.
Stylish Guest Seating
Of course, your dinner tables will need chairs, of which we have many to choose from. For a modern event design, we recommend sticking to pieces that feature neutral colors and simple details. Any of our acrylic chairs are a great option, which will lend a unique contemporary look to your event. Both our Acrylic Ghost Arm Chairs and Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs are a popular choice! For a slightly more romantic vibe, or to complement a warm-toned palette, you might opt for our Harlin Dining Chairs.
Sleek Lounge Areas
As always, every event needs a lounge to socialize. And one of our personal favorites are modern minimalist event lounges, starring clean & elegant furniture. We have a wide selection of timeless pieces that you can mix and match to create a one-of-a-kind social area. To start, choose a plush sofa, like our Regent Black Velvet Sofa – perfect for a moody minimalist lounge! Then, add-on chairs, such as one of our acrylic pieces or our unique White Eiffel Arm Chairs. And don’t forget to include areas for guests to set their drinks! We’re currently favoring our Rhodes, Rivet and Granger accent tables, with their sleek legs.

When it comes to event decor, table linens are a stylish way to dress up your event. Although simple, they are effective thanks to the wide variety of colors and materials, which contribute to the overall event design. Currently, we’ve been loving textured linens, from chic runners to velvet napkins. Get ideas on how to elevate your event tables when you feature a set of our on-trend textured linens!
Texture Table Runners
If you are featuring tables with an attractive top, then you won’t want to cover it up! Gauze runners are a stylish way to feature some contrasting texture, while still showing off the existing tabletop. Perfect for our Farm Tables! Our Sahara Runners pair beautifully with the wood finish, and are available in three stunning colors. Ivory and Natural are ideal for a modern minimal tablescape. Meanwhile, Rose will lend a fun pop of color! Our Chiffon Runners, available in Rose, Dove Grey or White lend to a more romantic feel. Want a more glam accent? Take a look at our Sequin Table Runners!
Dreaming of natural but sophisticated event tables? You can’t beat our Kennedy Linens! These linen-style tablecloths and napkins are lightweight, soft, with an organic texture. They are perfect for warmer months of the year as they are slightly sheer, lending a laid-back look. Not to mention they are available in a range of neutral and dusty colors, fitting for a modern event table! Some of our current favorites include Cactus, Fawn and Topaz.
The latest and greatest fad in event linen rentals is velvet! Velvet linens create a rich, yet seasonless texture for your tables. And they are available in a huge array of gorgeous colors, making them fitting for a variety of event styles. A few of our current favorites include Fern, London Fog, and Rose. For an especially sophisticated look, check out our etched velvet linens featuring metallic accents – a fun option for cocktail tables. Or your cake table! If you want to switch things up a little, consider topping velvet table linens with satin napkins! A buttery texture with a soft sheen, they will make for an extra romantic tablescape.

If you’re looking for a bright and chic look for your upcoming wedding, look no further! Earlier this year our team at Southern Events collaborated with other local vendors for a fresh and fun desert bloom themed style shoot at 14Tenn in Nashville, Tennessee. Enjoy the breathtaking image by Gray Kammera Photography as we show off some of our featured rentals!
For the intimate indoor reception, we opted to use our modern Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs. Meanwhile, our Davis Glass Cylinders with white pillar candles lined the aisle way, extending the airy look and creating a warm ambiance. Of course, the floral backdrop created by SS T Villager Designs stole the show! Their bright whimsical florals took this reception set up to another level, with lush greenery and bold colors.
Shifting to the reception, we featured more of our popular acrylic furniture. This time our Acrylic Carrigan Side Chair. A mix of contemporary and industrial/rustic furniture makes this set-up stylish yet inviting.
On the long dinner tables, we created place settings using our Coronado China, Athena China, Faux Wood Round Chargers, and Austin Flatware. Our Fuchsia Etched Velvet Napkins brought a POP of color that complimented the bright floral centerpieces. For drinks, we selected our classically elegant Cybil Glassware.
Also, note the beautiful calligraphy escort cards by Fanciful Ink!
When styling the bride and groom’s table, we always like a little extra drama. The bold florals dripped all the way to the floor where they met our Gold Metal Intersect Cube and Davis Glass Cylinders, for a warm and luxe look.
In addition to long dinner tables, we also used round tables. For these, we selected our stunning Fuchsia Etched Velvet Linens. A mix of our acrylic chairs were featured, for that popular mix and match vibe.
While the place setting were identical to those on the long dinner tables, we switched out the napkins. Our London Fog Etched Velvet Napkins provided a much-needed neutral contrast to the otherwise bold table. Our favorite element? The super cute potted plant wedding favors/place settings!
Lounge areas are a must-have for any wedding with a cocktail hour. This cozy lounge was created using our Nickel Grey Bench, Henley Grey Velvet Tufted Sofa, and Acrylic Fantasma Side Chairs. Cheval Gold Miror Side Tables were decorated with lush plants for that chic desert vibe. Nearby, bistro tables were set up with our Ocean Blue Velvet Linens.

Create an elegant event lounge with our Black Velvet Sofa and Black and Silver Rug, or layer our matte Onyx Earthen China with Black Velvet or Dupioni Linens for a chic table setting.

Art Deco Blues
Update traditional Art Deco event themes with Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year – Classic Blue. For a Tennessee twist, think blues instead of jazz with event rentals like our Navy Blue Velvet Linens, Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa, Rory Navy Velvet Chair, and Meridian Blue Tumblers.

Warm-up your 2020 events with earthy tones and cozy textures like velvet (again, we are so. in. love!) – from dusty rose, peach, terra cotta and, of course, gold! Take a note from City Winery’s open house and mix linens for a more interesting look – like our Cameo Blush or Merlot Velvet Linens with the neutral and glamorous Furrow Gold Linens. Bring in another trend with the modern, clean lines of our Acrylic Carrigan Chairs and Midas Gold Benches!

At the beginning of March we had the pleasure of helping our friends at Dream Events & Catering celebrate the grand opening of their new location, which features a spacious kitchen, offices, craft nook, and tasting room. Southern helped the “Dream Team” stage a tablescape using our new Eiffel Chairs, Midas Gold Velour Benches, and Artisan China. (The gray farm table in the photos is a custom piece that belongs to Dream Events, but is very similar to our new Grayson tables!) The event welcomed several hundred guests, including Nashville’s Mayor, Megan Barry! It was such a fantastic evening to support our fellow vendors in the events industry. Congrats again to Becki Annastas and the Dream Team!
Thanks to Jen & Chris Creed Photographers for sharing these images with us!

We are so excited to introduce these new beauties! The Santorini Couch and Santorini Loveseat are upholstered in ivory linen with a tufted style and modern lines. They’re part of our larger collection of modern lounge furniture, and would pair well with any of our Vintage Prop Shoppe Coffee Tables or Silver Drum Side Tables and we love these as a sleek alternative to our Vienna Furniture. It’s also pictured below with our brand new Mykonos White Coffee Table.
