The Launch of our Online Prop Hire Company - Prop It Pretty

Were so excited by our new baby 'Prop It Pretty' which launched this month.  ‘Prop It Pretty’ is a bespoke DIY hire company specialising in gorgeous d├ęcor, linen, furniture and props to make your event truly magnificent.  

We are the preferred supplier of many well respected wedding planners, stylists and florists in the events industry, and also hire directly to brides and grooms, PR agencies, venues, and anyone wanting gorgeous pieces for their next event. Our products have been featured on many wedding blogs and in magazines, who love our products just as much as we do. 

Feel free to hire our pretty pieces for your photo-shoots, weddings, birthdays, engagements, product launches and PR events.  The website will display all the details you should require to make a booking, including images of the product, details of the item, sizing and product availability.  You just need to select the items you require, add to cart, fill out the order form, and we will get in contact with you as to what is available for your date and an invoice.

On the week of your event, your props will be delivered freshly steamed, washed, cleaned and ready to use. All you have to do is tell us what you want to hire, your delivery address, and pay, and your pretties will be delivered the week of your event to your office, house or venue.  We will then arrange pick up following the event or you can save on this fee and deliver back to us.

No need to hand sew 100 linen napkins you will never use again, or search every op shop within South East Queensland for months to acquire 70 crystal champagne coups.  We've done the hard work so you can save your time, money, sanity, and enjoy your event. 

And without a further ado, I present our new logo and a peek at the beautiful pieces we have available for hire.  Pop over to the website to see our entire range of pretties.

2014 Top Gun Florist in Australian Florist Awards

We were delighted to have the floral reception creations for Kate and Dan's Byron Bay wedding accepted into the top 10 finalist for the 'Australia's Top Gun Florist Competition run by Tesselaar flowers for 2014.  We were even more ecstatic to win the 'Flowers to Decorate' category for the second year running with this image.  We were also lucky enough to win the same category in 2013.

This year Tesselaar Flowers received more than 1300 stunning entries into their annual Top Gun competition, which one entrant described as “the Australian Idol of the flower world”!
Their expert judges then selected their top 10 picks across 3 categories (30 finalists in total). From this shortlist the competition came down to a popular vote for the 2014 Top Gun in each category - 3 winners, each who win an iPhone 6 Plus!

So to celebrate you can see our submission image below as captured by our friends at Feather and Stone Photography, as a few of our other favorites from each category.  We were delighted to have have our work showcased among the other beautiful creations.

Thanks again Tesselaars for the awesome competition for florists.

Real Wedding : Lauren and Tim

Lauren and Tim bought the most gorgeous country property at Mt Marrow earlier in the year, and moved all the way from Wellington Point in Redland Bay to country Ipswich.  The property's paddocks are full of rolling pastures of grass as golden as the sun, and Tim built their house just in time for their wedding earlier in the month.  Lauren has even bought herself 3 horses that spend their days chewing grass and running around in horsey joy - she saved them from the slaughter yards, so why wouldn't they be overjoyed with happiness now.

We were delighted to undertake Lauren and Tim's wedding styling and flowers for their day working alongside them to create a relaxed, country styled setting.  All decor, vases, linen and signage used for their wedding can be hired through Prop It Pretty .

Karen Buckle captured the below images on their day, such a perfect fit for Lauren and Tim who I'm pretty sure are our most relaxed couple EVER!

Enjoy,  Roberta
