About Us

The Pretty Prop shop specialises in renting out unique and stylish props and decorations for parties, weddings and corporate events which have been sourced from New Zealand and around the world.

Owner Sarah Cruickshank started The Pretty Prop Shop after having trouble finding stylish props for hire in South Auckland for her own wedding in 2012.  Sensing a gap in the market for all sorts of unique props and pretty details, she has built up a wide inventory of stock available for hire.


View our hire range under “Props Gallery” and contact us to make a booking to view in person or send us a quote request email through the website quote function with your hire requirements.

We hire all the pretty little things to make your wedding or corporate event that bit more special:  chalkboards, cake stands, apothecary candy buffet jars, drink dispensers, sequin table linens, gold and copper cutlery, charger plates, marquee letter lights, wooden signs, seating charts and tea light holders to name a few.

Check back frequently as we are constantly updating our stock with all sorts of new and trend setting pieces.  And if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, chances are if we don’t have it we can source it for you.  We draw on close to twenty years experience in furniture and homewares buying.


We have a small studio workroom/showroom located in Patumahoe (near Pukekohe), New Zealand for clients wishing to view our products and have an informal consultation. We believe that having the opportunity to see the items personally and play around with different combinations of items, really helps craft your styling vision and refine your ideas.

Our showroom visits are strictly by appointment only and are predominantly offered on weekdays between 9:30am and 1:30pm. As we are extremely busy during weekends, we are limited to offering Saturday appointments twice a month. Do get in touch with us to find our more or book an appointment.

We are approximately 45 minutes from Central Auckland off-peak, but make a day of it – Patumahoe has a fantastic cafe and a pub/restaurant which is just down the road.
