With event season right around the corner, we’re thinking of unique ways to display smaller decor and family heirlooms during receptions and corporate events We have some amazing rental items that will be perfect additions to your rental order.
Our Boxwood Wall is an excellent way to grab your guest’s attention. With it being a bright green 8-foot tall wall, it can serve as a lush escort card display or make a beautiful backdrop behind your ceremony arch or head table. We loved seeing them as a focal point in a recent wedding where the planner used a velvet blue ribbon to attach escort cards to the wall.
Another great piece is our Silver Metal Display Stand. We usually see it filled to the brim with champagne flutes; a lovely way to greet your guests upon arrival to your reception. It can also be used to display appetizers or favors for your guests.
Our Mahogany Wine Barrel table has been used for dessert displays, escort cards, favors, gifts and even as a ceremony altar. We love how versatile it is and the creative ways in which planners have utilized them! You also can rent the wine barrels separately and use them for cocktail tables, aisle markers or as a cake stand. We have also seen them used as “hydration stations” with our Glass Beverage Dispensers on top of them near the dance floor so that guests stay hydrated all night long

Each year we look forward to hearing the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year, as it helps inspire and shape event colors. We absolutely loved the Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery – but we were thrilled to learn Ultra Violet was the color selected for 2018! While we will always incorporate neutrals and Earth tones into our designs, we’re loving that Ultra Violet signifies that bold uses of color in event space designs are back.
Defined as “a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” Ultra Violet “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”
EventWorks has several options for how to use our rentals to showcase Violet at your event this year!
We have five styles of linens available to rent, all with different shades, sheens and textures. From lighter lilacs to deep eggplants, we have a plethora of purples to select from. One of our favorites is the Krinkle Violet – with a textured, reflective look and feel, this linen is perfect for an elegant affair.
One of our favorite patterns of China that we carry is the Vintage line. It comes in four beautiful, different colors, one of which being Violet! Ideal for a spring or fall event – our Vintage Violet plates are subtle in color, but make a table pop once set. We have the Vintage Violet available in a B&B plate, Salad plate, Dinner plate and Charger.
A few other fun ways to add a hit of Violet to your event:
- Sash your cocktail tables with a shade of Violet to add a pop of color
- Preset a Violet napkin at place settings
- Use Violet gels with our Can Up Lights at your event to add color reflections on the wall

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.
