Cocktail hour on your wedding day. It’s a fancy happy hour – with all of your closest family and friends. Along with planning your favorite signature drinks for your guests (and yummy hors d’oeuvres), you’ll also want to create a comfortable space that’s perfect for conversation. Cocktail hour is for moving around as your guests meet new people and connect with each other. With this in mind, barstools and cocktail tables are ideal when creating a setup fit for mingling! Take a look at our unique cocktail tables and bar stools that will complement your reception theme or venue.
Do you love farmhouse-inspired style? Our Farm Bistro Tables are a classic choice, available in two beautiful colors: White Wash and Fruitwood. If you prefer a more subdued rustic setup, you can top any of our classic bistro tables with luxe linens that will suit a woodsy setting. Forest Poly or Kennedy Natural will complement any rustic venue, as well as most urban backdrops. For a complete look, be sure to grab our Crossback Barstools.
Bright colors and chic rentals are a must-have for a modern romantic celebration! Vibrant linen-dressed cocktail tables are an easy way to feature some color at the reception. And if you’re into the clean lines of mid-century modern, our Mid-Century Barstools in Black or White will fit perfectly into your theme. Prefer a more luxe look? Our Charleston Bistro Table is an easy choice. It looks stunning with a set of popular Gold Chiavari Barstools.
Going for a modern or minimal theme? Our Loren Gold Bistro Table and Acrylic Ghost Barstools are a darling pair, especially when set atop one of our vintage rugs. For a softer look, you might place a runner across the table, for that modern romantic look. Try a neutral color like Havana Ecru or Bloom Chiffon! To create an equally impressive but more traditional setup, opt for a simple bistro table outfitted in bold linens. Any color will look stunning with a pair of sleek Acrylic Casper Square Back Barstools – or any of our acrylic chairs for that matter.
Cocktail Hour Essentials
A successful cocktail party requires some specific furnishings! Starting with a beautiful bar, where mixologists can whip up impressive beverages. To assist them in a stunning presentation, be sure to stock the bar with a selection of gorgeous, on-theme glassware. And maybe a display shelf or two! For a fun interactive element, you can’t go wrong with our Boxwood Walls, complete with a champagne shelf and lots of bubbly.
If you’re ready to get started planning your upcoming cocktail hour, we’d love to help! Send us a message at email@example.com, or view our full range of wedding cocktail tables and barstools.

From customizable bars to on-trend glassware and elegant backdrops, Southern Events stocks it all. Keep reading to learn about our event bar and bar accessories for rent, for every type of event.
Stylish Bars for Rent
A well-outfitted bar is the sign of a well-planned event. Part of your event planning list, if you’re including alcohol, will include “Get items for the bar”. So let’s get that item checked off. First things first – what’s your theme or style? Going for a rustic or bohemian theme? Check out our beautiful Bond Bar. Or an upscale, Southern look? Try our Antique White or Black Wood Bar. How about an elegant, sophisticated look? The Harpeth Bar is always popular! If you are hosting an intimate event, we also carry a Gold Bar Cart, perfect for providing table service.

This is why Southern is excited to stock a diverse range of on-trend glassware, suitable for a variety of different themes and event styles. As well as the different types of drinks you plan to serve, whether it be wine or signature cocktails. Our Champagne Glassware is essential for a celebratory event, but we also carry some statement pieces. Including our retro Davis Glassware and contemporary Cybil Glassware.

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.

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.

Boxwood Champagne Walls
Cocktails are a highly anticipated treat at any event, but why not take your service to the next level with an interactive champagne wall? Creative, interactive, gorgeous, and full of bubbly – we’re definitely here for it! Guests will be absolutely delighted as they walk by this fun drink station, which can also double as a photo op!

Boxwood Wall Photo Backdrops
Entirely customizable, our boxwood walls are a must-have for a trendy photo station. Easily create a photo backdrop that complements your event, whether it’s for a wedding or another social gathering. The options are truly endless, as long as you have the creativity and gusto! As shown below, a bright neon sign is always a nostalgic decoration. However, it would also look lovely with a monogram or pictures of the newlyweds. We also love it with a colorful balloon arch for a shower or birthday party.

For large corporate events, our boxwood walls are an effective way to keep your business at the forefront of guest’s minds.

Boxwood Wall Seating Chart
At a wedding, you want to leave a lasting impression! Aside from a champagne wall, one easy method is with an interactive seating chart. Popular in recent years, a boxwood wall seating chart is a fun way to greet guests and guide them to their respective tables. You can simply list their names, like on a mirror or acrylic sign. Or you can use wedding favors that double as escort cards, like these beautiful horseshoe ornaments.

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.

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!

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

Modern Outdoor Weddings
If a couple is desiring a modern vibe at their wedding ceremony, Acrylic Chairs look absolutely gorgeous – they are the perfect modern approach to seating at an outdoor wedding. Pairing an outdoor setting with modern materials creates an upscale, yet approachable feel.

We adore dressing fabulous Nashville area venues in Southern Events rentals, and Long Hollow Gardens is one of our absolute favorites. Long Hollow Gardens is a super unique event venue. It is actually a greenhouse! Couples can achieve that “outdoor wedding” feel with all of the comfort of remaining indoors (think gorgeous summer wedding without all the heat!). Oh, and don’t forget about the exquisite natural light pouring into the venue. On this 35 acre property, you’ll find a vineyard, their Farmhouse Bridal Cottage, and Hearthroom Barn. With enough space for 200 guests, it’s a great venue for weddings and events of all sizes.
Our neutral, natural rentals really shine at Long Hollow Gardens. The Cross-Back Chairs look tailor-made for this venue and are incredibly inviting paired with ivory linens. When outfitting the Greenhouse, we typically stick to neutral color palettes in order to let nature shine. From the Bennett Leather Sofa to the Fruitwood Farm Table, many of our rentals look as if they belong at this one-of-a-kind venue. However, we are not opposed to dreaming up a colorful look with our Saylor Velvet Furniture rentals. We are in love with how this location serves as a backdrop for pretty much any dreamy look a couple could conjure up.
If you are hosting an event in one of Nashville’s finest venues, we’d love to take the rentals off your plate. Send our team a message at email@example.com.

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.
