Prophouse has Just opened its doors in Somerset West!
You know all those boards you have been saving on pinterest, featuring the most fantastical assortment of props and décor that would make your dream wedding a reality? Well then, I am sure you know how hard it is to source these props within South Africa.
....Look No further, Prophouse has opened its doors!
We chatted with the dream team owners of Prophouse, who just happen to be sisters: Kaitlyn (who is an already established, professional wedding photographer) and Jessica De Villiers (who owned and ran a thriving arts and crafts business in Mossel Bay) to find out more about the unique and wonderful dream prop and event décor store that is Prophouse.
Tell us more about how the idea for Prophouse came about?
Prophouse grew from a small idea, to create a magical weekend wedding for a free-spirited family member. We began trying to source the items the bride to be had seen on Pinterest and so desperately desired for her wedding day. No existing events company seemed to supply what we where after and so we began creating the pretty props ourselves. With Kaitlyn being established within the wedding industry she noticed there where so many brides whom wanted to D.I.Y the same pretty things for their special day but most did not have the time or resources to create exactly what they wanted in time for their big day!
What makes Prophouse different from other Décor hire companies?
Whilst we do supply some of the standard table decor items that one would require at their event. Prophouse exists to design magical celebrations, mainly focusing on those one of a kind unique items that add the WOW factor to your special event! We try to keep up with the latest trends within the industry and are more than happy to create a custom piece for your special event too!
Are the props and decor only specifically for weddings?
We provide props and decor for all kinds of events whether it be for a wedding, stalk party, smash the cake, birthday or a styled photographic shoot to name a few, we have you covered! We are also starting up a few consumable ranges which will be available soon.
Tell us a bit more about the styles of props and décor that you offer?
We are strong believers in colour blocking our decor range making it simpler for those whom are shopping for their event with a specific colour scheme in mind, however, we also have themes to shop by, coming to our website soon.
Our largest range would definitely have to me our Bohemian/tribal range, consisting of macrame table runners, backdrops, arches, dream catchers, tee-pee tents and plenty of gold accents. With an entire white and gold wedding signage range to match!
We have so many collections available including Blush pink, Serenity blue, Marble and grey, coral and mint, Lavender and yellow, white, organic and more!
We are focusing on building up our organic range, marble range as it is getting increasingly popular. Also coming soon is our very own craft beer stand!
