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!

This Southern rock soirée took place at one of Charleston’s most iconic venues, Middleton Place. Planned by Ashley Rhodes Event and Design and photographed by the lovely Perry Vaile, this destination wedding felt every bit of the rock n’ roll and glamour that it deserved. With a Sperry sailcloth tent anchoring the reception space, our Napoleon chairs made its wedding debut for these two songbirds, Ana Christina and John Cash (son of iconic country singers, Johnny & June).
With intimate nods to the couple’s personal love story and shared passion for music this Charleston wedding was truly a special affair - and one for the books!
With cocktail hour beginning in the popular Octagonal Garden at Middleton Place, our Plantation Bar awaited guest’s arrival. Small belly-up tables with Mahogany Chivari chairs were also placed around the grounds to allow guests to sit and enjoy the beautiful setting.
After cocktail hour, guests made their way to the reception tent to enjoy a stationed meal provided by Cru Catering, served on our Purio China. The cake was provided by Minette Rushing served on our scalloped Magnolia China.
Outside and adjacent to the tent sat our Vintage Empire Lounge, complete with Louis X Chairs, a Queen Anne Coffee Table, Vintage Empire Sofa and Victoria End Table. A comfortable setting for taking a break from dancing!
We were so happy to be a part of this special evening and contribute to this beautiful design for these two Nashville natives. You can view the wedding featured in Baubles & Bowties, here. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest to see more wedding inspiration and recent events.

The holidays are almost here and we have many new products to help you deck the halls! We hope you are ready to browse our latest in china, lighting and furniture…just in time for the New Year.
One product we are very excited to share with you is our newly designed Chloe Chair and Chloe Barstool. With the recently modified unique “C” design, these white-wash chairs will add elegance to any occasion.
Fresh to our lighting collection, we are introducing our Light Dover Bronze Chandelier. This nine light chandelier is an elegant color and boasts a uniquely modern design. These are a perfect addition to our existing chandelier collection, which currently includes our Crystal Chandelier and Mod Chandelier.
We also excited to share a newcomer to our ever-growing tabletop collection - the Aria Glass Charger.
This charger adds texture to all place settings and is a great subtle touch to any table. The glass material allows for light to bounce and your linen choice to pop.
Adding to our stage design, we are introducing our Mahogany Stage Facade and matching steps. Just like our White Stage Facade, these pieces are an ideal alternative to skirting to give your stage a finished look.
During the past two seasons, we have focused on growing our Lounge rentals. This fall, we added a Brown Tufted Leather Sofa to our inventory and have been searching for a perfect coffee table to pair with the collection ever since. Well, we’ve finally found it… our new Tristan Walnut Coffee Table pairs perfectly with this masculine leather sofa.
With the holidays upon us, we know there will be many delicious desserts abounding. What better way to present them than on our Gold Cake Stand? With the same vintage design as our Silver Cake Stand, our Gold Cake Stand comes in three different round sizes.
