Events and Style Shoots
With summer weather in full swing, we’ve been especially inspired by all things outdoors. If you’re in Nashville (or anywhere in the United States), take one step outside around dinner time and you’ll smell it. It’s cookout season. From neighborhood block parties to back-to-school parties (soon!) to corporate get-togethers, most events migrate outdoors to make use of the green grass, fresh blooms, and blue skies. Southern Events recently partner with local Nashville vendors to create a fresh look for an outdoor party style shoot. Join us as we reminisce over the laid-back feel of the event.
Most people love the easy-natured feel of an outdoor cookout party. It just brings people together. Simple and comfortable textures, rustic accessories, and bright colors marry to create a fresh and fun vibe. We used Red and White Check Linens to emphasize the nostalgic feel and bring a fun, picnic theme to the look. The cookout food was set atop our White-Washed Barnwood Barrel Bar. Festive ice-cold drinks were served in our Hungarian Baby Bath.
An important part of any event is having more than just one area for guests to lounge. If you want them to stick around after the food (or make sure they’re comfy while waiting to dig in), we recommend a lounge area. For this outdoor cookout party, we brought our Simplicity Bench, Chocolate Pouf, Stone Round Fire Pit, and plenty of pillows and blankets for texture and to help make the party feel more inviting.
We had so much fun working on this shoot with the talented Locklane Events and Feather and Oak at Cedarmont Farms and adore these images provided by Erin Allender Photography. Here’s to Southern summers!
If you’re planning a back-to-school outdoor party or a fun corporate get-together, we’d love to help make it stylish & Southern. Send us a message at email@example.com.

Southern Events Products
Nashville and Franklin, TN are home to several unique event spaces, from grand ballrooms to intimate gardens. Whatever kind of event you’re hosting, Music City certainly has the perfect venue. Team Southern is always honored to be able to work with some of the best venues in the business, where our distinct rentals help transform a space into a unique vision. One of our favorite spots is the beautiful Carnton Plantation, where Southern history and gorgeous gardens make for breathtaking events.
Carnton Plantation is a historic landmark that has been a gathering place for ladies & gentlemen over the last two centuries. It features an antebellum garden for Southern ceremonies and receptions, an 18th-century mansion, and the Eastern Flank BattleField where the annual Heritage Ball takes place. While all the venues are rich in history, they also include upgraded modern amenities for everyone’s comfort.
With the ability to host 225-500 guests, the property is perfect for large-scale events. Corporate retreats, company-wide trainings, or grand Southern weddings are all more than welcome in this historic gem.
Multiple Event Spaces
The garden allows couples to exchange vows in front of a grand tree, while the antebellum garden is manicured and maintained for the most romantic photo shoots. The Eastern Flank BattleField is rich with Tennesee history and holds up to 500 people in a large reception tent. Carnton’s 1826 McGavock family home offers a glimpse into 18th-century Southern living while providing a stunning backdrop for more photo opportunities that capture the elegance of Franklin.
A Blank Canvas
The tented reception space lets couples and event designers start with a blank canvas to create any design, all while guests are able to take in the Southern charm and Tennesee history that surrounds them. Southern’s rentals have been used at the Carnton Plantation to help define corporate events, romantic garden weddings, opulent black-tie gatherings, and more.
We’re proud to partner with Carnton Planation to help couples design beautiful wedding days. Our rentals help customize the space while still being surrounded by Tennessee history. Interested in learning more? Visit their website for package and pricing information.
