About The Prop House

From humble beginnings in 1995, The Prop House has grown to be Brisbane’s favourite event theming company.


As of 2019, our Director Jano Kotzas celebrates an amazing 30 years in business.

Her care and creative flair for her clients and career has transcended The Prop House from humble beginnings in 1995 into what the company is today.  During this time, The Prop House team has developed into a cluster of unique individuals that possess the same ethos but with their own little quirks and personal style. 

Buoyed and excited by global trends in visual merchandising and identifying a unique market niche, Jano established the  brand VM+ (Visual Merchandising Plus More) in 2012. VM+ focuses solely on delivering excellence in visual merchandising, Christmas, and VM training. This vibrant brand has designed Brisbane’s much-loved Queen Street Mall decorations, installed over two-hundred corporate Christmas displays, created numerous fashion season launches and created countless retail windows across South East Queensland.

The Prop House and VM+ brands work closely together, delivering excellence in corporate event styling, prop hire, visual merchandising and corporate Christmas displays.

Completing the trio of ‘sisters’ under The Prop House’s roof is the newest addition: Christmas Decorations Brisbane. Bright and sparkly (and with a penchant for online shopping), CDB is a retail space selling all things bright, shimmery and festive year-round.

From cocktail parties to dinner galas, shopping experiences and activation spaces, The Prop House is the umbrella of all things creative. With its two sister companies, VM+ and Christmas Decorations Brisbane, it is safe to say that the family is ever-expanding. Even throughout the growth, however, one thing remains: our belief of “small things, big impact”.

“In order to remain the best, our vision is to always provide a product of distinction; one which ultimately makes our clients and their events a success..”
