2021 is rapidly approaching and with it are new event trends! After all the challenges of 2020, our team at Southern Events is looking forward to getting creative to help you design memorable celebrations in the year ahead. Get inspired for your future events when you take a look at the 2021 trends, featuring our in-stock rentals.
Luxe But Sustainable
Luxe events aren’t going anywhere but we’re seeing an increased interest in sustainability. There are multiple ways to host a sustainable event via rentals. The first being reusable serving ware, including china, flatware, glassware, as well as linens. Rentals are an easy and beautiful way to reduce the waste produced by your event.
In terms of styling, expect lots of lush plants & greenery. Potted plants are especially beautiful and perfect for aisle decor and table centerpieces. The same goes for dried plants, which lend lots of texture. Pampas grass in particular is trending, as it easily adds volume and height. Expect to see an increasing amount of dried floral bouquets and arrangements.

All Out Events
Go big or go home right? One 2021 trend is events that are memorable, not necessarily in size but in the details. Diva Boho themed events are a great example. Think of bold & intricate geometric patterns, and voluminous flowers or other organic arrangements. Metallics are also here to stay, as they are a quick way to add some sparkle and shine to an event. At this type of event, you can tell that every thoughtful detail was well planned and executed.

A Focus on Sentimentality
People are gravitating towards heirlooms and the texture of various things that draw them to the past – we expect this event trend to only get bigger in 2021. Not necessarily boho theme, but colors and textures the incite a sense of nostalgia. So sustainable handmade pieces that lend texture, such as clay, jute and wicker decor. This trend also applies to attire, in the form of heirloom jewelry, clothing and accessories. For weddings, think dresses with intricate old school embroidery in an ivory or cream color. One great example are celestial-inspired events, where texture and vintage or retro items are easy to incorporate into the design.

Metallic Place Settings
An easy way to add warmth to a colorful backyard event is with gold or silver accents. Featuring our Gold Round Lacquer Charger and Austin Flatware, adds a touch of metallics that contrasts beautifully against turquoise centerpieces. It also complements the golden yellows and sunset-inspired oranges throughout the event design. Don’t forget to pull these accents into other parts of your events with gold-rimmed glasses on your bar or gold side tables in your lounge. This creates a more cohesive look.
When it comes to table centerpieces people often feel the need to use matching pieces. A colorful backyard party is a perfect time to experiment with creative shapes and colors. This tablescape features a mix of vases, in teal, white, gold and clear glass – easy for a DIY backyard party. For candles, we suggest varying heights to add some dimension (though you can also create this with taller arrangements). As far as flowers go, consider keeping it simple but bright with a variety of wildflowers. Orange & yellow tones perfectly contrasted and popped against the teal and white glassware!
Vibrant linens are so much fun! The use of bright colors will lend a sense of liveliness to your event, plus make your event photos pop. Don’t be afraid to use different linens for each table either! Note how we were careful to switch up the color of our table centerpieces depending on the linen color. As a general rule: place lighter colored centerpieces on dark tablecloths and vice versa. Our Fuschia Etched Velvet Linens with their gold veining would be a another way to bring in a subtle metallic accent and a bold pop of color.
