Nothing brings good tidings and cheer like delicious holiday fare – deviled eggs, butter-laden potatoes, gravy-smothered turkey. In fact, food remains the focal point of most holiday celebrations, wherein family and friends gather around the table. This makes it all the more important that you serve your painstakingly created dishes in style – that and it somehow makes the food taste better. Take a look at our stylish serving pieces for holiday parties, and other catering rentals, that will make for a memorable food-focused gathering.
Luxe Hors D’oeuvres & Entrees
Which is better – hor d’oeuvres or entrees? We can’t decide, but there is no doubt that appetizers have picked up in popularity in recent years. Maybe it’s the charcuterie fad, but people seem to love these flavor-packed and visually stunning creations. And what better way to display them than a gorgeous Silver Tray – try Carson Rectangle for charcuterie or Carson Round for tidbits on toothpicks. If you prefer a rustic-inspired alternative, our Wood Charcuterie Board or Wood Melamine Tray are both gorgeous.
Come time for dinner, create a complete look using our crisp white Melamine Serving Pieces. From deep platters to bowls and trays, there is a piece for every tasty morsel. Add on other essentials, like a Rattan Bread Basket – for those fan-favorite rolls. Plus a Stainless Steel Gravy Boat (or two)! If you plan to have a larger guest count and want to keep dinner service easy peasy, no problem. We rent chafing dishes, plus stock a variety of other catering rentals.
Fanciful Dessert Plates
What are the holidays without your favorite desserts? Alongside charcuterie, dessert displays are also popular – elegant tiered arrangements featuring everything from homemade pies to handheld puddings. Our Marble and Gold Cake Stands are adjustable, ideal for creating a custom arrangement. And our Windsor Stands would be a fun add-on. For a rustic-inspired table, feature the Wyatt Pedestals alongside the Willow 2-Tiered Stand – perfect for minis! Of course, you’ll also need plates. We recommend any of our gold accent china, for that luxe seasonal look. Check out Hamlet for a traditional table, or Athena for a more modern setting.
Beautiful Beverage Displays
Easily the most underrated serving pieces for rent are our beverage dispensers, for a coffee or tea service. Regardless of the size of your holiday party, these elegant pieces will make for an elevated experience. We have options for table service or drink stations, including the Silver Coffee Server and Silver Coffee Urn. Just don’t forget the matching cream and sugar set – a must for that charming old-school look. For larger parties, or if you plan to feature a build-you-own hot chocolate bar, opt for a larger Copper Coffee Urn. You might also throw in a second Silver Urn, to provide a spiked coffee or hot chocolate option for the adults!

The key to throwing a successful holiday party (and not throwing your sanity out of the window) is proper preparation. If you’ve ever hosted a holiday party before, you understand how chaotic planning can be. Even then, you may still feel like you’re scrambling trying to get things done at the last minute. This is why we want to treat you to a stress-free holiday party planning experience. Whether you’re hosting an intimate holiday dinner at home or a large formal gala! Check out our tips below on holiday party must-haves, featuring our stylish rentals. Plus, grab our Holiday Party Checklist that will make it easy to execute a jolly affair!
On-Trend Holiday Office Party
Hosting a holiday party at the office can be limiting, but that doesn’t mean it should be boring. Start by adding some color to the office with festive linens in a brilliant Heritage Cranberry or deep Magnolia Green. If you’re serving food, even just appetizers, pass on the paper plates and opt for Gold Accent China paired with matching Gold Austin Flatware. Finally, serve up a DIY Hot Cocoa or Coffee Bar (don’t forget the Baileys!), with our hot beverage dispensers. Alternatively, treat your team to a casual cocktail hour featuring a formal bar and a menu of seasonal cocktails in fancy glassware!
Casual Holiday Luncheon
When hosting a holiday luncheon, chances are you’ll be inviting co-workers, peers, and people you may want to network with. That’s why you’ll want the event to feel approachable, yet still have a formal holiday vibe. In order to achieve this, you’ll want to have coordinating linens such as our Champagne Sequin Linen, Chafing Dishes, and Copper Beverage Service Equipment – to give your holiday party a festive feel. To make sure guests feel welcome and encouraged to mingle, we also recommend a stylish lounge. Our Fern Velvet Sofa and Bamboo Arm Chairs are a chic set!
Feast at a Festive Gala
The holidays are a great time to celebrate in a big way and a grand gala is just the way to thank VIP clients or your team for all they contribute to your company’s success. If you’re hosting a large formal company holiday party, there are a few items you’ll want to make sure you include. A red carpet entrance area sets the scene, as do our Boxwood Walls – emblazoned with your company logo or festival holiday decor. Cocktail and bistro tables are a must for mingling and should be decked out with luxe linens, say Etched Velvet or a shimmery Satin. Then there is the bar, where guests can enjoy their favorite seasonal drinks, from a Hot Toddy to spiked cocoa. We also recommend having formal place settings with china, chargers, and plenty of glassware for toasting the year past and ahead.
At-Home Holiday Soriee
Cozy home holiday parties are a wonderful and intimate way to share seasonal good tidings with family and friends. But these gatherings can stretch the limits of anyone’s kitchen! Whether you need extra plates or forks, serving dishes and platters, or flutes for toasting, we have it all. We even offer a selection of carefully curated Holiday Boxes, packed with all the essentials for creating a stylish holiday tablescape – like the ice-inspired Silver Soiree! We can also elevate your seating, with our Adeline or Harlin Dining Chairs. For an extra luxe look, create an elegant drink display using our rolling Gold Bar Cart. As always, we’re glad to schedule a delivery or pick-up at our Franklin warehouse.
If you’re hosting a holiday party, we’d love to help! Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance designing a seasonal get-together, big or small, that will have your guests in awe.

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.
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.

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.

Darcy Bone China Charger

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.

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.

When the weather is nice, why not enjoy dinner with your family and friends outside? Come spring and summer in Tennessee, there is nothing better than dining in the fresh air, with a cold cocktail in hand. Get inspired for backyard alfresco dining with our stylish in-stock serving ware.
Vibrant Cherry Red & Teal
To complement the colors of the season, we love a vibrant tablescape. This design features cherry red and teal, for a look that is classically southern. Our warm fruitwood farm table acts as a base for White Square China, Navy Blue Velvet napkins, and Pure Glassware. A cool-toned, Dove Grey runner lends another hint of blue to the table. Meanwhile, our Brushed Copper Flatware and Audrey Gold Rim Glassware bring a touch of glam via metallics.
Natural Lime & Lemon
Sometimes less is more! For this natural table design, fresh citrus and fruit was the star of the show. Atop Heritage Ivory Linens, we placed our simple Artisan China and Wood Round Charger, complemented by Brushed Copper Flatware. The centerpieces consisted of fresh greenery and citrus, which were perfect for the lush lawn setting. To tie some greenery into the tablescape, we opted for our favorite fern velvet napkins. This design is ideal for a bright mid-morning brunch or afternoon cocktail hour!
When you want a casual yet put-together look, opt for a farm-to-table design. This simple tablescape features our Artisan China, Sophia Flatware, and Madison Glassware. Despite the minimal serving ware and linens, what truly makes this layout is the table and chairs. Take our Cross-back chairs, which are plain yet oh so elegant. For a pop of color, you might consider brightly-colored napkins or a table runner. Perhaps in our Cornsilk Poly or Peaches n’ Cream Poly.
Bold Black & Gold
Black and gold are a classic pairing and surefire way to make a statement. This luxe and bold backyard alfresco dining table showcase a mix of moody hues, including black, gold, and a variety of red shades. For the serving ware, we opted for our Austin Flatware, Medallion Gold Glass Charger, and Madison Glassware. What amplifies this tablescape is the balance from glam elements, such as the gold and acrylic details. Take for example our always popular Acrylic Ghost Chairs! If you prefer an equally colorful but bright style, take a look at this colorful backyard party.
There is something so charming about gingham, and this backyard cookout-inspired table just does it for us. It was created using our Onyx China and silver Sophia Flatware. The true black plates are an easy way to bring the fun gingham tablecloth back down to earth. Yet super cute coke bottle centerpieces and our contemporary Davis Glassware keep the overall vibe light. For a look that is slightly more toned down, switch out this tablecloth for a solid or neutral color.
