Are you dreaming of a wedding that is out of this world? Check out this modern celestial wedding! A theme that is all about creating a bright and modern atmosphere, with an ethereal touch. It is perfect for couples who want to have a unique wedding that is contemporary yet tasteful! Featuring our stylish rentals and a cool-toned color scheme, check out the details of a styled shoot hosted at Southall Meadows, inspired by the magic of the cosmos.
A Chic Indoor Ceremony
The Hall at Southall Meadows was the perfect setting for a ceremony, with a towering ceiling and blank white walls. It lent an airy atmosphere, softened by romantic white drapery. For the backdrop, a row of lush Boxwood Walls sat in front of a wall almost entirely made of glass. It beautifully illuminated the space, and cast a glow on the wedding party! White bases maintained a crisp look, complemented by our Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs.
If you have a larger guest count or are feeling inspired by the universe, place them in a half circle for an elegant ceremony in the round. Want to make a memorable first impression? Greet guests at the ceremony space with a colorful mocktail displayed on a White 6-Tier Serving Tower.
Bright Modern Cocktail Party
A bright celestial-themed cocktail hour is a fun and unique way to celebrate your big day. In line with the ceremony, we created a modern setup where guests could grab a drink, get comfortable and mingle prior to dinner. Starting with an elegant bar, starring the same boxwood walls. It was a gorgeous backdrop for our curved Harpeth Bar. A classic piece that can be customized with your new last name or a custom monogram!
The bar was stocked with a variety of contemporary glassware, including Gatsby Champagne Coupe and Temptations Glasses. The unique shapes are perfect for serving up quirky signature drinks that embody the theme. Such as a blue-colored drink with glitter for a “galaxy” effect! For additional seating, we opted to feature our modular Pearce Lounge with a Black-Silver Rug. We also have cocktail tables outfitted in Black Nova Linens with Mid-Century Barstools, in black or white.
Modern Celestial Wedding Reception
Come dinner time, we wanted to create a slightly more intimate atmosphere. This is why we set up in the historic barn, which lent a more down-to-earth vibe. It also ensured that the tablescapes, starring a splash of celestial-inspired colors, stood out! Wood banquet tables featured a Sahara Runner in Ivory and round were covered with White Etched Velvet Tablecloths. They were contrasted by sleek serving ware: Glass Chargers with a Black Rim, stacked with Earthen Alabaster and Stone China, and Noir Matte Black Flatware. Meridian Blue Tumblers and Dusty Blue Etched Velvet Napkins lent a unique pop of blue! While Acrylic chairs were a modern and elegant touch.
Non-Floral Table Centerpieces
At each table, centerpieces starred voluminous plumes of dried ferns and pampas, for a subtle bohemian vibe. Although if you want to tone down the florals, consider a non-floral centerpiece starring our Gold Metal Intersect Cube. The bright geometric design is ethereal and the shimmering gold will make your serving ware pop. Place candles around each cube or at the center, depending on how much lighting you would like to feature.

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.

A stylish tablescape is a memorable element at any event, corporate gala or social dinner party. For many, the first addition is a charger plate, a large decorative base upon which other dinnerware is placed. These pieces serve as an effective yet simple way to elevate a tablescape, by complementing or contrasting your other serving ware, decor, or color palette. Take a look at our selection of unique chargers, now in-stock and available to rent!
A classic favorite, the Belmont Charger is a clear glass plate featuring a beautiful silver beaded rim. This versatile piece looks beautiful when stacked with bright or dark serving ware, creating an elegant yet subtle sparkle. Below, it is complemented by our Onyx China, Cameron Flatware, and Cybil Glassware, for a modern and dark yet whimsical look.
Copper Glass Charger
A newer item in our catalog, the Copper Glass Charger is a chic piece that lends a gorgeous touch of metallic to any tablescape. The bright copper rim has a feathered edge, giving it a fun contemporary vibe. Consider complementing this unique charger with our Brushed Copper flatware and Carrera Marble Dinner Plate.
Darcy Bone China Charger
When your goal is a classically feminine tablescape, you can’t go wrong with our Darcy Bone China Charger. With a dainty rim, this delicate plate looks stunning for a more traditional design. If you’re a fan of the current cottage core trend, we recommend pairing this plate with our Heirloom China, Abby Flatware, and vintage-inspired Hob Nob Glassware.
Glass Charger with Gold Rim
Our Glass Charger with a Gold Rim is a must-have for any luxe modern tablescape. Simple yet bold, it features a clear glass center and a metallic gold rim. Popular for weddings, it looks especially beautiful when contrasting rustic elements, or when complementing other minimalist details. As shown below, it is paired with our Austin Flatware and Pure Glassware.
Glass Charger with Silver Rim
Similar to the previous design, our Glass Charger with a Silver Rim is an equally gorgeous alternative to gold. It offers a cooler tone to a tablescape that may be preferable for a brighter palette or cool weather event. On the tablescape shown below, it is complemented by a modern color palette of grey and purple.
Gold Round Laquer Charger
Our Gold Rouge Laquer Charger is a classic that can be dressed up or down. It can be paired with a wide range of china, including our Darcy China or mixed and matched with our Gold China. To complement the metallic shade, feature it alongside our Gold Austin Flatware.
Medallion Gold Glass Charger
If you want a tablescape that screams luxe, check out our Medallion Gold Glass Charger! This intricate design is a stunner and looks even more beautiful stacked with our Athena or Ophelia China. The tablescape shown is topped with a Spice Velvet linen for a slight boho look. But for an equally dramatic yet moody vibe, opt for a darker color such as Black velvet.
Rouge Round Laquer Charger
A versatile piece, the Rouge Round Laquer Charger is a rich copper tone. Although it looks gorgeous with neutral tones, feel free to spice up your tablescape by adding in more vibrant colors! As you can see below, it looks beautiful with a deep blue, true red, as well as silver metallics, and Earthenware.
Scalloped Wood Charger
Boho is in and our team at Southern Events is here for the trend! Our Scalloped Wood Charger is an easy way to lend a rustic yet charming look to your tablescape. It features a beautiful wood grain that perfectly contrasts bright serving ware, such as our White Round China. On the other hand, keep this unique charger front and center when pairing it with Clear Glass China.
Silver or Black Round Laquer Charger
Our Silver Round Laquer Charger is a stunning base for a cool weather tablescape that is modern and luxe. Consider pairing these unique chargers with vibrant linens, such as our Light Blue Pindot or Wisteria Satin tablecloths. Meanwhile, our Black Round Laquer Charger works well in as a grounding element in both neutral tablescapes and bright and bold looks. Consider pairing it with our Fuchsia Etched Velvet Linen or against our Grayson Tables.
White Round Porcelain Charger
There is nothing wrong with a traditional tablescape starring our White Round Porcelain Chargers! Lending a traditional look, this style is preferable for corporate events, in addition to formal weddings or similar social events. It is easily paired with a selection of our white or ivory linens. Consider adding a luxe metallic touch via the flatware!
Wood Round Charger
Don’t be mistaken, our Wood Round Charger can be used for more than rustic-themed tablescapes. While this faux wood charger looks beautiful next to other rustic elements, it can also be used to create a fun and modern design. See below, where it is paired with bright whites, vibrant pink, and gold metallics.

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!
