In 2022 we brought a lot of trends to fruition, from micro-weddings and backyard gatherings, to boho and retro-inspired rentals, as well as neutral and earth-toned color palettes. But now it’s time to look to the future! Today we’re going to take a look at some of the anticipated 2022 event trends, so that you can start planning your best gathering yet.
We saw a snippet of this trend in 2021, with opulent garden parties. But in 2022, we’re taking it to the next level with set ups inspired by the hit series Bridgerton, also known as Cottagecore. For this event style, we’re expecting pastel-rich color palettes, luxe textures, and vintage-inspired furniture.
Start with memorable tablescapes, featuring unique colors and fun rentals. For example, our Fern or Sea Glass velvet linens, or more decade appropriate Blue Kensington print. Top them off with our mismatched Heirloom China, or break up all the prints with our dainty Darcy China. The best choice for flatware is our versatile Abby or Sophia flatware. Finally, incorporate a splash of texture with our Green or Amber Goblets.
If you’re hosting an accurate event, then you’ll also need an equally impressive cocktail hour setup – high-society gatherings were all about mingling! Rent our Franklin Antique White Bar and a lounge to match. Such as our Fern Velvet Sofa, a set of Everly Chairs, and our Rhodes Coffee and side tables. Cocktail tables are also available for those who prefer to remain standing room!
Due to a large number of couples postponing their nuptials in 2021, sequel weddings will be a hit in 2022. That is, a big party following an intimate ceremony. Which can also be used following a vow renewal, or any type of post-pandemic celebration. These events will be focused on living in the moment, so they don’t have to be luxe – but they can be!
At these events, we’ll want to help create a small and cozy feel, which can be achieved with soft textures and warm colors. Think earthy, natural tones, like Terra Cotta or Rust. For a ceremony, start with our classic White or Fruitwood Folding Chairs and line the aisle with mismatched cowhide rugs.
For your reception, as well as any other small dinners, you’ll want to create cozy tablescapes and lounge areas where people can gather. Start with one of our beautiful Farm Tables paired with a neutral-colored runner, in Ivory or Natural Sahara. Next, feature simple serving ware, such as our Artisan or Earthen Alabaster China. For some fun pops of color, consider our Amber Goblets and elegant velvet napkins in Spice or Cameo Blush. Easily create a complementary lounge with our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs.
Mocktails & Sober Cocktails
Wellness is a priority for a large amount of the population at the start of a new year. And to help you and your guests achieve that goal throughout the year, we recommend upping your mocktail game! Which is easy to achieve with our wide selection of gorgeous glassware rentals. For this 2022 event trend, grab some of our favorites, like our Audrey Gold Rim Glassware and Whimsical Cybil Glassware. If you want a more colorful look, go with our Colored Glassware in a Meridian Blue and Smoke.
At Southern Events, we’re excited to help you continue to celebrate with these 2022 event trends! A reminder, however, that as we see an increase in gatherings our rentals will book up faster than ever. Be sure to secure your rentals as soon as possible to ensure that the pieces you love the most will be available at the time of your event. Reach out today, at firstname.lastname@example.org!

The wintertime is a festive season, but when it comes to hosting some people prefer a more minimal and timeless look. A setup that oozes warmth and charm but is totally on trend! Get inspired when you take a look at some of our favorite minimal winter event rentals, from serving ware to lounge furniture and more.
Planning to host dinner at your winter event? Check out our beautiful Earthen China! These simple neutral-colored serving plates are so gorgeous your guests will want to take them home. They come in three colors: Alabaster, Onyx, and Stone. For a luxe metallic touch, pair any of these dishes with our Austin or Brushed Copper Flatware.
White Eiffel Arm Chairs
When featuring a minimal dinner table, like our Farm Tables, you can have some fun with your chairs. Our White Eiffel Arm Chairs are a unique contemporary option that are insanely comfy! Alternatively, use our Rustic Benches to lend a more cozy touch. You might also decorate these seats with soft throws or pillows for a fun pop of color.
Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa
For a large social event or even an intimate cocktail hour you’ll want a cozy lounge area. Our Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa and Saylor Navy Velvet Chairs are ultra-soft, simple, and beautiful. A rich blue hue, they are especially gorgeous if you are hosting an ice-inspired event or featuring a cool-toned palette.
Gold Hammered Coffee Table
To create a fully functioning lounge area, don’t forget some accent tables! Our Gold Hammered Coffee Table features an organic shape and a muted color that will complement most any furniture. If you prefer a more toned-down color palette, opt for Pewter instead.
Gold Bar Cart
Last but far from least, we recommend our Gold Bar Cart! This elegant piece is oh so versatile, whether you want to offer a table-side drink service or a small self-serve drink station. It’s a beautiful piece for both large and intimate events alike. Just don’t forget to stock up on glasses – like our Reese Glassware.

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.

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.

Monochromatic event design takes one color and weaves it throughout the event rentals and decor. We’ve all heard the phrase “less is more” and that’s definitely true here. If you’re looking to create a lot of drama and make a memorable statement, choosing one color and layering in different textures and materials will go a long way. It’ll be bold no matter what, but the mood varies depending on the color.
This look can be achieved by keeping furniture, linens, lighting, and florals (and pretty much anything and everything in between) in the same color palette. Also, there’s no need to stress about making sure everything matches just right. For monochromatic design, it’s more about pulling together varying hues, tones, and textures in the same color family. We’ve used our in-stock rentals to showcase how to pull together this look.
A black monochromatic design creates a sophisticated feel. Our Black Velvet Sofa paired with our Black and Silver Rug build out the perfect lounge area. For dining, our Carrera Marble Dinner Plate and Black Dupioni Linens join forces to give off an ultra-sophisticated and seamless look. Finally, we used our Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs to compliment the black monochromatic design and carry the sophistication even further. (Our Acrylic Chairs are a nice companion to pretty much any monochromatic event design.)
An all-white design is a dreamy and glamorous option for weddings and other events. It gives off an ethereal, magical feel. There are so many ways to go about a white monochromatic design. For this look, we pulled together our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Loveseat and Cowhide Rug for a comfortable lounge area. For the dining area, we brought in mismatched Vintage Chairs, Athena China, and Cybil Glassware.
A blue monochromatic theme is both bold and classy. The Saylor Sofa and Loveseat set the scene for this look. To accent the blue monochromatic theme, we pulled in our Navy Rug and Meridian Blue Tumblers.
We’d love to create a show-stopping look for your wedding or corporate event. If you’re feeling inspired by these designs, send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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!

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.

Nautical-inspired event design is classic and timeless. Whether you’re talking about clothes, interior design, or party themes – nautical themes are elegant, preppy, and here to stay. There’s just something about the combination of whites, navy, and gold that produces an air of a New England soiree. This event theme is ideal for sweet baby showers, seaside or mainland weddings, and fun corporate events. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to this fresh nautical color combination. You can go as “theme-y” as you want, or shoot for a more subtle approach. Southern Events Party Rental Company has plenty of nautical-inspired event rentals to have you and your guests feeling as if you’re celebrating oceanside (no matter where you are). Ahoy!
Fresh and crisp whites, such as our Santorini Sofa, paired with sophisticated blue linens (Royal Poly or Midnight Poly, for instance) achieve an elegant and preppy nautical theme – effortlessly and subtly. To really have your event set sail, we recommend bringing in flatware and dinnerware with gold accents. Our Austin Flatware and Kate Polka Dot dishes fit quite nicely here. You can anchor the theme with items like our Navy Rug, aptly named Saylor Sofa or Rory Navy Velvet Chairs for extra seating. The sky really is the limit when it comes to how nautical you want your event to be.

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.

2019’s Pantone Color of the Year is Living Coral, and we have all the heart-eyes for this color! There are tons of ways to go about incorporating Living Coral: sweet, feminine, classy, Southern…the ideas go on and on. Here, we are in love with how the spunky color combination of teal and coral can evoke both glam as well as fun vibes. If you’re looking to incorporate 2019’s Pantone Color of the Year – Living Coral – we think this is a fabulous way to do it. We adore how the color pops up in a myriad of ways at this Spring Tasting Event at CJs off the Square (even down to the adorable cocktail).
This glam and fun theme incorporates gold, mismatched and detailed dinnerware, and our swoon-worthy Farrah Teal Velvet Chair. The teal color woven through the theme takes the coral to a new level. The Tessa Tufted Beige Loveseat just had to be part of this look, with the glam and fun lines on the piece calling out to be included in this Coral shin-dig.
Poppies and other coral floral designs–along with coral linens–accented the event, assisting the teal and coral theme in adding to the glam and fun vibes.
Beautiful images by Jenna Henderson Photographer.
