Garden weddings are popular themes, especially during the warmer months of the year. As we sit and dream with couples, we hear their love for the romantic feel this theme offers. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of seeing garden weddings come together in a myriad of ways, and we have fallen head over heels for the whimsical palettes and charming event design. Keep reading to get inspired by our take on the modern garden wedding, featuring sleek and sophisticated rentals that make for an incredibly chic celebration!
Sleek and Chic Tables
This modern take on garden weddings can be achieved by bringing in bright rentals featuring geometric shapes that contrast dramatically with the freeform nature of, well, nature. Outfit your tables in colorful linens that will POP against a lush garden setting. For balance, feature our Harlin Dining Chairs or Cross-Back Chairs, made of natural wood. If you prefer an equally romantic but vintage-inspired look, consider our Antique White Bentwood Chairs.
Dreamy Velvet Details
Masculine elements, such as monochromatic color schemes contrast beautifully against soft florals and greenery. All white or all black furniture against a dreamy, floral aesthetic is both masculine and modern! Although, we’re still a fan of lighter palettes that complement whimsical florals. You can achieve a luxe but chic look by featuring textured details, namely in the form of velvet linens! Some of our current favorite colors include bold blue hues and romantic pinks and purples!
Elegant Social Areas
When hosting an event outdoors you tend to have more area to fill – in which case there is no reason not to have a cocktail lounge! Something simple yet elegant and cozy where guests can enjoy a drink and socialize. Take a look at our curated lounge packages, or mix and match our pieces to make your own. Our Bennett Leather Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs are a fine pair, especially when complemented by a set of Chocolate Poufs and stylish accent tables. Meanwhile a rug will help frame the space!
We adore taking lovely decor pieces and transforming them by creating interactive designs that deliver jaw drops from the guests and serve a purpose. In this case, our Boxwood Wall shows up to look gorgeous, with bright ice pops that also serve as a stylish backdrop for a photo-op. Alternatively, you might dish up some champagne to greet guests at the door!

Trends and Inspiration
Warm tones have been trending in events and weddings over the last few years, and we are in love with this palette! Take a cue from nature with these sunset-inspired event colors and event rentals that wrap your Nashville event in warm nostalgia.
Go for the gold… in event rentals other than your flatware or furniture. Try layering linens in warm neutrals with your event rentals – like the subtle yellow of our Wheat Satin Linens – or add some flair with our Midas Gold Bench.

Copper has been popping up in event design from elegant to bohemian events – and everywhere in between. But this color chameleon isn’t just a metallic. “Copper” hues offer a range of shades in Southern rentals – like our Rouge Charger or Russet Satin Linens.

Not just for fall, use shades of scarlet to wow at your events year-round. From brick red accented with gold to a pop of burgundy, these rich sunset-inspired event colors are sure to have depth to your Southern event.
This isn’t your Granny’s curtains anymore. Not quite a rose pink or a chocolate brown, mauve is the perfect color to bridge between feminine & masculine in your event color palette. Layer textures like blush velvet linens with our warm wood Harlin Chairs or a dusty rose pillow on the leather Bennett Sofa.

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!
If you’re drooling like us over this elegant day, send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’d love to chat about your upcoming wedding.

Trends and Inspiration
Pastels are a growing trend in event design this year. If you watched the Oscars, you know it (we are still swooning over Maya Rudolph’s glorious pink gown – among other amazing looks). Pastels were everywhere. Bonus: This trend incorporates itself beautifully in weddings and events. You can make this color scheme work with whichever various themes you’re going for. Classic? Of course. How about “garden charm”, or Southern, or “rustic glam”… yep, you can do that, too! Whimsical, romantic, and even glamorous, pastels will lend an enchanted feel to pretty much any event or wedding.
Often, when people think of pastel color schemes, they think “sweet, traditional, and girly.” That’s definitely not the case anymore! This pastel color scheme can most definitely be luxe and modern. Imagine monochromatic shades of pastel blue – that look is both sleek, modern, and incredibly fresh.
When creating a fresh look with these colors, you can bring in pastel linens, dishes, furniture, or florals. You could also weave pastel colors through your invitations, food (think French macaroons), or wedding party gowns and accessories. If you’re wanting to create a look with pastels, Southern Events Party Rental Company has everything you need – from linens to dishes to coffee tables!
Love pastels and want help incorporating this fresh palette into your next event? Send us a message at email@example.com.

Farmhouse-inspired weddings and events are very of-the-moment, and for good reason! This trend is classic, fresh, and uber-relaxed. Perfect for a gathering of friends and family that is down to earth (literally) while being effortlessly stylish.
We partnered with the Gifford Collective at Meadow Hill Farms, where we used some of our favorite neutral rentals to bring this Southern Farmhouse look to life. The tablescape features our Sophia Flatware, Artisan Dinner Plates and Artisan Dessert Plates, Madison Glasses, and Havana Ecru Napkins. Fresh bread wrapped in butcher paper serves as place cards (love!), while cream, greenery & silver accents atop a Farm Table, paired with our Cross-Back Chairs, created an elegant and approachable Southern Farmhouse table. The ivory and handpainted wedding cake sits on our Fruitwood Round Cake Plateau as a tempting finish to the delicious meal one can imagine enjoying here.
The Southern Farmhouse style has been growing in popularity and is still going strong as a trend for 2019! We are excited to help create this beautiful scene for couples this upcoming year. Thank you Cassidy Carson Photography, for the beautiful images.

A waterfall. 138 acres of a reclaimed rock quarry. Forest and meadow. Streams and ponds. Limestone cliff walls. We aren’t talking about some magical land in a Disney movie. We are talking about a real-life wedding venue in Nashville–Graystone Quarry.
Photography by Amilia Photography
Graystone Quarry, located in Nashville, TN, is a sought-after venue for weddings and events. Full of natural beauty and resonating with history and culture, this Nashville venue has limitless options for a sure-to-be-talked-about wedding or event. As the exclusive rental company for Graystone Quarry, Southern Events Party Rental Company has had the honor of working with their team to create a multitude of event design and looks for weddings and events at this venue. From moody & elegant to timeless & classic, the property’s stone backdrops and upscale buildings work with any event style.
Wedding Ceremony Space
Graystone Quarry’s signature glass doors inside of the Hillside Pavilion have been the quiet and reverent observers of vows exchanged. Couples can choose between opening all three glass doors or leaving them closed. Guests are treated to gorgeous views from every angle. The benches found here stay with the venue.
Wedding Reception Space
After the wedding ceremony, guests are taken to the wedding reception area–the Gathering Hall, where they find a fireplace, a double staircase, and glass doors opening to a courtyard (complete with a pond and a 20-foot waterfall). The Gathering Hall boasts plenty of seating, a sweetheart table directly near the fireplace, and dramatic backdrops at every turn.
With all their events, one thing remains the same, and that is that each event is equally memorable, meaningful, and magical. To top it off, you will be sure to find Southern hospitality at each and every turn. If you’re seeking a wedding or event venue that is equally unique and breathtaking, charming and memorable, historic and gracious–Graystone Quarry fits the bill.

Here at Southern Events, we love a modern tablescape! While modern can sometimes mean stark or cold, your table design can have a modern feel and still be elegant and timeless. With earthy elements, luxe fabrics, clean lines, and ghost chairs, we created three modern Southern tablescapes to inspire you.
#1 Modern Luxe Tablescape
Moody and glam, our modern luxe style features our Black Dupioni Linen, Carrera Marble Dinner Plates, Cybil Glassware, Sofia Flatware and Glass Chargers with Gold Rim. Taper candles in a sleek iron candle holder with carefully placed succulents as well as our Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs, give this tablescape it’s modern lines while remaining understated. This table design would be perfect for a black tie gala, fundraiser or chic rehearsal dinner.
#2 Modern Seaside Southern Tablescape
Navy linens, relaxed china & glassware combine with an airy centerpiece and copper flatware to create a tablescape perfect for dining al fresco! For this modern seaside-inspired Southern tablescape, we used our Navy Blue Velvet Linens, Earthen China, Davis Glassware and Brushed Copper Flatware. Our Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs once again keep this relaxed tablescape modern. Plus, we love using navy as a neutral, especially when it’s velvet.
#3 Modern Tuscan Southern Tablescape
Give your event a modern Tuscan feel! With patterned dinnerware, aqua linens and an oversized, this modern southern tablescape just needs wine! Featuring our Coronado China, Earthen China, Sofia Flatware, Davis Glassware, Ocean Blue Velvet Linens, Dove Gray Chiffon Runner, and Acrylic Armless Ghost Chairs. The bold linen and coordinating china are reminiscent of Italy art and flair, while the simple centerpiece and glassware keep this modern look the perfect fit for outdoor garden events, dinner parties and springtime wedding & baby showers.

The Southern Events team had a fabulous time at CJ’s off the Square in Franklin, TN, where we collaborated on their winter tasting and wedding style showcase! We worked with the team at CJ’s and Enchanted Florist to design a variety wedding style inspiration tablescapes for engaged couples getting married at this intimate garden venue. We brought along some of our most-loved wedding rentals for a truly beautiful affair!
In the garden, we paired rustic Fruitwood Farm Bistro Tables with Cross-Back Bar Stools for a cocktail style set-up. By the koi pond, our luxe Cameo Blush Velvet Linen and Cecilia Floral Matte Satin Linen gave a sumptuous variety of texture within a rosy color palette.
Boho Chic Wedding Design
In the wedding pavilion, brides and grooms-to-be were treated to a bouquet of wedding ideas and inspiration. For our Boho Chic tablescape, we featured Fruitwood Round Farm Tables and Cross-back Chairs, the natural wood set off by our Chiffon Table Runners. We paired Rogue Round Laquer Chargers with our Earthen China in Stone and Pure Glassware to achieve a relaxed and boho-inspired tablescape.
Southern Garden Glamour Wedding Design
Couples looking for more Southern garden glamour were wowed by the Garden Party wedding table. We went all out feminine with our color palette, featuring our pops of gold and soft pink with our gorgeous Gold Chiavari Chairs, Glass Chargers with Gold Rims, Austin Gold Flatware, Blair Salad/Dessert Plates. Vintage-inspired touches like our beautiful Darcy China, Champagne Lace Runners and Gatsby Champagne Coupe Glasses pulled the elegant look together while an ornate and girly centerpiece by Enchanted Florist made everyone swoon.
Modern Minimalist Wedding Design
For a modern engaged couple looking for a sleek design, our Modern Minimalist look is perfect. We kept the color palette and wedding design simple and clean, featuring our Glass Mosaic Dinner Plates and square-bottom Cybil Glassware. Our striking Brushed Copper Flatware provided a pop of color against elegant Charcoal Dupioni Linens and our classic White Resin Folding Chairs.
Moody Modern Drama Wedding Design
The Moody Modern Drama tablescape was a hit with engaged couples looking for a bold wedding design. We highlighted our Onyx Earthen China against bright ivory linens and paired our popular wooden Harlin Dining Chairs for a natural touch. Gold accents with mercury votives and Austin Gold Flatware completed the show-stopping look.
Sweetheart Table Wedding Design
For the sweetheart table, our Cowhide Rug was placed beneath a mini Fruitwood Farm Table. Then it was set with Vintage Constance Chairs and Bloom Chiffon Runner. Copper tubing and over-the-top wedding flowers made this sweetheart table design a striking focal point, fitting of the guests that will cozy up as newlyweds here!

Team Southern had the honor of designing a meeting for Tennessee’s Wedding and Events Specialists Association (TWESA) with Homestead Manor recently. We brought along our distinct rentals, including our most loved Mercer Leather Couches and Farm Tables and placed them amongst our newest and most popular rentals, like the Harlin Dining Chairs and Chiffon Runners.
White Leather Mercer Couches and our Nickel Grey Bench with soft velvet fabric and acrylic legs were set up alongside the barn to create lounge areas for meeting attendees to enjoy throughout the event. Inside, tall cocktail tables were draped with Burgundy Red linens and tied together with a satin ribbon. Our Gold Metal Spheres were placed throughout the property for added charm.
Our center tables were dressed as soft golden daydreams, with hues of rose and greys throughout. Dove Grey Chiffon Runners were draped carefully as Harlin Dining Chairs provided a unique architectural touch. Earthen China dinner plates in stone were placed atop Darcy Bone China chargers for a modern design, and our Austin Gold Flatware added a metallic flourish. Satin Rose linen napkins kept things soft and sweet while our Pure Glassware added striking and timeless lines. Gold Metal Intersect Cubes completed the look, with shimmering gold and clean lines for a perfectly crisp, positively beautiful style.

We love an ethereal design that pulls light colors and soft fabric from the days of disco without jumping into a time capsule. A Dreamy Disco design takes 1970s flair and gives it a contemporary feel- pastel greens and peaches are soft and sweet while bold gold accents liven up the party. Silky smooth velvet invokes a classic 70s vibe while a more modern design keeps the party in the present day. We love a Dreamy Disco for weddings, tea parties, ladies’ luncheons or corporate events looking to channel 70s Dolly Parton.
