A brilliant solution to styling your reception...


Suffolk Wedding Photographer


Today we discovered a really brilliant website! http://www.styleboxe.co.uk/ They sell packages of table decorations which include centre pieces for tables, place name cards, table cards, table plans, table clothes and even cute little tea light holders! The only thing not included is the flowers :) 

Styleboxe take all of the hard work out, you pick the style, tell them how many tables, the names of the tables and they post it all out to you in a neat little box. They cheapest option is £150 for 4 tables and the most expensive box is £600 for 10 tables (they can cater for more tables on request). We can't imagine how much time, money and effort this would normally take, so we did some research... 

We've taken a styleboxe and tried to find exact replicas of the pieces included on the internet to do a direct price comparison. 

Here is one of our favourites, the country bloom box, priced at £600 for 10 tables. 

Bursting with colours and a world of prettiness…Our county theme represents everything beautiful… Think English Gardens… Think pretty blooms flowing in the wind on a hot summers day.Just stunning! Perfect for any outdoor wedding!
