EventWorks Staff Spotlight: Meet Nichole Carpenter, Client Relations and Sales Manager
Location: Myrtle Beach
With a degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland, Nichole has come a long way from her Criminal Psychology roots. She always wanted to live on the coast so after graduation she moved to the Myrtle Beach area. Before diving into the rental industry, Nichole worked for a local catering company, as well as for a local event planner. Her comprehensive understanding of the event industry has tremendously helped her be able to better service our clients.
While she loves organization and design, she wanted to be able to spend more time with her son, Jackson, so when a position opened in 2016 at EventWorks, it was the perfect fit – event-industry oriented, yet with a manageable work-life balance. After all, she has always had a passion for design and loves seeing client’s visions come to life.
Her favorite EventWorks products include the Natural Chalkboard. She loves using it as a fun decor piece or personalized signage.

We have several unique products we are so excited to highlight to kick off (almost) spring season! How is it already February!? Clients have been asking for new options and we are so excited to share them with you. We cannot wait to see how our clients creatively integrate our newest products into their 2018 designs.
With a matte finish and smooth texture, the Heirloom China comes in two colors: White and Smoke. Currently available in White are the B&B plate, Salad plate and Dinner Plate. In the Smoke, we currently carry the Salad plate, but hope to add the other sizes to our inventory later this year.
We have added several new chargers to our inventory within the past year, but the Rattan option is definitely one of our favorites. Simple and southern, these chargers can be paired with our Farm tables and linen tables alike for an elegant affair or a backyard soiree. More photos coming soon!
We love the Driftwood X-Back chairs, but we are really excited about our lighter, Natural X-Back chairs, especially for our spring and summer brides! With the same gorgeous cross back design, the lighter color can be dressed down or up depending on the elegance of your event!
Not only do we provide rentals for weddings and social events, we also are involved in many corporate events throughout the year. We are excited to introduce our Executive Chair to our inventory! Perfect for panels or meetings, these cushioned, armed chairs on wheels can add a sophisticated touch to your next function.
Last year, we introduced several new statement lounge pieces to our inventory. And this year, we’re excited to showcase our Green Metal End Table. With a patina finish that can be modern or classic, this piece pairs perfectly with many of our sofas including the Green Velvet Tufted Sofa and Brown Leather Tufted Sofa. With the clover side designs, it is truly a unique option for the client who is willing to be creative!

With December upon us, what better way to kick off the new month then checking out some of our favorite fall and winter table designs? We’ve been inspired by the holidays and the cool, crisp color palettes of the season and have put together a mixture of chargers, china, flatware and glassware to adorn any winter table.
With festive flair, these tablescapes are perfect for upcoming holiday parties with delicate touches of greens and reds.
Design A Dream Event also used a Majestic napkin to add a hint of festivus to this table, featuring our Mosaico Charger, Gold Rim Glassware, Amalfi China, and Savoy Gold Flatware, all on a White Wash Farm Table.
As you know, gold is an accent color that compliments every season, but it certainly has an extra ornament feel around the holidays! Against a softer linen color, our Gold Glass Beaded Charger made a statement on this setting designed by Pure Luxe Bride.
With touches of greenery, this simple setting, photographed by Paula Player Photography, features Gold Flatware, Gold Glass Beaded Chargers, Versailles China, and Gold Rim Glassware placed on our Mahogany Farm Table.
Whether you are looking for a bolder (or “gold-er”) design, or a classic holiday affair with reds and greens, we have your rental needs covered. Be sure to check out all of our designs on our website, Facebook page & Instagram page!
