You’ve never heard of Americana decor? Let us introduce you! This unique style is a throwback to the industrial age, with rustic details, vintage pieces, and other nods to star-spangled pride. Nostalgic, classic, and versatile, this theme is fun and will lend a casual yet put-together look to your next event. Making it the perfect vibe for a corporate meeting or summer party on or near July 4th. Take a look at our favorite Americana event rentals, to help you achieve an iconic yet effortless setup.
Laid Back Furniture
From tables to chairs and bars, Southern Events has a multitude of in-stock Americana event rentals. Easily create a cozy lounge using our Bennett Sofa and layered Cow Hide Rugs to set the scene. Alternatively, a Blue and Red Rug bring warmth and a bit of modern style to the Americana theme. For a bistro area, use our classic Whiskey Barrels and our Remington Gunmetal Barstools. To complement your dinner tables, we also carry vintage and urban-inspired chairs.
Is an Americana event complete without a bar for toasting and celebrating? Absolutely not! The Bond Bar is equal parts laid-back and vintage. Then there’s our always popular Hob Nob Glassware which lends a touch of elegance. Of course, if you prefer a more sleek design, opt for our Recycled Glassware. To set the table, Artisan China creates a beautiful relaxed look! We also encourage you to infuse a subtle touch of color into your tablescape using our luxurious linens. Try out a natural tan or ivory, or a subtle shade of blue.

Both functional and decorative, we offer a variety of stylish nostalgic props to infuse even more personality into your event. It just takes the right combination of classic American colors, vintage pieces, and contemporary lines to create an Americana-inspired event that is welcoming and beautiful. For example, these Urban Wood Side Table! Or our Hungarian Baby Bath, which makes for a unique drink cooler (as do any of our vintage washtubs). Place them alongside the bar for a casual grab & go set up! And to decorate your tables or frame a space, check out our all-American fruit crates. To see similar rentals, be sure to visit our Vintage Prop Shop!

Though we hope every event goes off without a hitch, postponing or rescheduling weddings and events happens. But you don’t have to sacrifice your event style for a shift in seasons with these classic, season-less event design tips & rentals from Southern Events.
Take a note from nature to plan your event color scheme. Blues, teals, and greens are classic colors that can easily transition your event rentals from one season to the next. We love our Saylor Velvet Sofa and Chairs, Ocean Blue Velvet Linens, Coronado Salad Plates, and Fern Velvet Linens for the perfect pop of season-less event design color.

Keeping your event color palette neutral can avoid a seasonal shift – but it doesn’t have to be boring!

Warm + Cool
Use both warm and cool colors in varying shades in your season-less event design. This way you avoid seasonally inspired palettes – like spring pastels or rich fall colors. These colors can be mix in your florals, linens, furniture, and even flatware – like mixing our Brushed Copper Flatware and Sea Glass Velvet Linens.

There may be mixed feelings about 90s trends swinging into the 21st century, but one thing most can agree on is we are here for the velvet. All the velvet party rentals! Luxurious, warm, comfortable, and sophisticated, this moody fabric is making its way onto catwalks and into event design.
Not only is velvet incredibly elegant, but it’s also versatile. Combine velvet with more rustic elements, such as farm tables and Crossback Chairs for a warm and approachable vibe, or combine it with elements a bit more on the fancy side – think black velvet linens and gold flatware for a breathtaking tablescape.
With Southern Events Party Rental Company’s in-stock rentals, you can go all-out velvet with couches and chairs, or you can go the understated and elegant route by weaving velvet elements in the details.
All Out Velvet
If you’re obsessed with velvet (hey, we get it!) and want to go all-in for your next party, our Black Velvet Sofa, Saylor Velvet Sofa and Chairs, Henley Gray Tufted Sofa, and Rory Velvet Chairs are going to be great choices for your foundational pieces. Pair with gold accents for an elegant vibe or natural wood for something a bit warmer!

Velvet in Moderation
Are you a fan of “velvet in moderation”? There are SO many velvet linens to choose from. Pick one color and go modern with monochromatic, or pick several colors and go for a boho layered look! We love the muted White, Rose, and Gray Velvet Linens, and we can’t get enough the Merlot Velvet.

Real Nashville Weddings
We recently had the honor of being part of Hailey and Daniel’s Nashville wedding day at Sycamore Farms. Classy, elegant, and full of warmth – this day was bursting with elements that we are thrilled to share with you. From the lush views of the venue, down to the live band… it was utterly fabulous.
Let’s begin with the gowns. The bride wore a sophisticated white bridal gown with intricate details and a plunging neckline. Her bridesmaids looked elegant and beautiful with black bridesmaids dresses. We always adore a good black and white wedding style.
The couple’s vision for an elegant and classy day was brought to life by whites, golds, and accenting greenery. Hailey and Daniel exchanged vows outdoors under Sycamore Farms’ rustic pergola with 360-degree views, draped with white linens and trailing greenery. Guests watched the nuptials take place, seated in white chairs. Everyone dined and celebrated indoors, with tables dressed in elegant White Satin Linens, White Round China, and chic gold Austin Flatware.
The classiness of this perfect wedding day was leveled up by a live band. We brought in our White Harpeth Staging that fit the “elegant” bill perfectly. Clients adore this staging because of its versatility. We love using this white staging for live bands…it would also be a fabulous piece for a grand head table.
Lovely photography provided by Cannon Weddings. Thank you, Hailey and Daniel, for the honor of being part of your incredible wedding!

Fall is drifting in, and as the seasons begin to change, so do wedding trends. Bold and vibrant colors can be found everywhere in nature–from the burgundy mums sitting on your doorstep, to the bright orange pumpkins waiting to be carved into jack-o-lanterns, to the yellow leaves falling to the ground. Who are we to argue with mother nature? The vivid and rich color palette of the great outdoors moves fall wedding trends toward more jewel-toned hues.
So grab that pumpkin spice latte, light a candle, and peruse these gorgeous, in-stock jewel-toned rentals.
Our Saylor Navy Sofa always makes a striking statement. We’ve used it at many weddings and events, and it begged to be included in this lineup. The piece’s deep and powerful hue of blue brings in warmth and vivacity. Our Tabby Tufted Gray Linen Loveseat and Gold Chiavari Chairs are alluring accent pieces that round out the fall color theme.
We love playing with linens- layering them, draping them, and allowing them to pop in unexpected places. When it comes to a fall, jewel-toned wedding theme, linens are a trusty side-kick. They accentuate, build up, and reinforce the vibrant color palette. The possibilities are endless. Our Burgundy Poly Linen, Gold Poly Linen, Magnolia Green Velvet Linen, and Raspberry Poly Linen are our top picks for pushing this jewel-toned vision to life.
Warm, rich, vivacious colors set in gold are the things of fairy tales (and sought-after gifts). Rubies, emeralds, sapphires- they all have several things in common. One of which being they are set in gold. Setting your jewel-toned wedding in gold is simple with our in-stock rentals. Our Austin Flatware, Gold Accent China, and Gold Decor Accessories do just the trick.
Are you catching these fall feels? We’d love to help you create the bold and vivacious wedding you’re dreaming of. Send us a message at email@example.com.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies in Nashville, TN come in all shapes and sizes. Couples may opt for an open-air feel for a variety of reasons – one being the sheer beauty and novelty of exchanging vows with Mother Earth as a front-row guest. Many brides and grooms have envisioned an outdoor wedding ceremony for as long as they can remember. We adore being part of wedding celebrations outdoors, and get giddy with excitement when we see it all come together!
An outdoor wedding ceremony does not always mean the wedding is taking place on some form of a lawn. You could use a rooftop or a venue that offers concrete area. If a couple is looking to take it to the next level, Dura-Trac Flooring is the perfect option in terms of creating flooring outdoors. Otherwise, with nature as the backdrop, the sky is certainly the limit in terms of what kind of look one can achieve for an open-air wedding ceremony. Boho, elegant, rustic, intimate, grand – we’ve seen it all. In order to achieve the look you desire, all that is needed is creativity, a plan, and the perfect outdoor wedding ceremony rentals.
Boho Outdoor Weddings
For a boho-themed outdoor wedding ceremony, we love using rentals such as our Rustic Bench for seating. For texture, Cowhide Rugs draped over benches and over the ground are used. This adds warmth, color, and fun! Our Metal Ceremony Ring would fit perfectly here as well.

Traditional Outdoor Weddings
For a more traditional outdoor wedding ceremony, Folding Chairs in black, natural wood, or white and our Walnut Ceremony Doors create a streamlined, classic look. The combination of natural wood, green grass, and a blue sky come together for a memorable and gorgeous day!
