FAQs - Event in a Box

How does Event in a Box by Shape Events work?

Select one of six settings, all containing an oversized luxury fabric table runner, fabric serivettes, crockery, cutlery, glassware, taper candles, and candlesticks. Complete your online order and make payment. Your Event in a Box is then delivered to your doorstep the day before your event. After the party, repack your linens along with your rinsed dishware and glassware in the box the settings arrived in and leave at your front door for Shape Events to collect from 10am the next day. Simple!

I'm having a dinner party with multiple tables, how many runners and candles will I get?

If you are using more than one dining table, please make a note of this when placing your order. Our luxury oversize fabric table runners fit up to a 3m long table. All orders typically come with one runner and two taper candles and candle stick holders.

Can I mix and match items from different settings?

Unfortunately, each setting is not customisable. However you can make 2 or more orders and choose different styles.

I don't have enough furniture, can I hire tables and chairs from you too?

Yes! We have tables and chairs available for hire. There is a section on the online order form for you to complete to let us know what you need. You can also let us know other details in the 'details' section.
