Somerville House Diamond Ball

For the past few years The Prop House has styled the Somerville House Ball, this year the theme was diamonds! Our intention was to turn the gala space into a glittered, elegant and magical room that would ‘wow’ each guest as they entered.

The students and parents entered through a ‘wonderful light’ curtain onto a red carpet and immediately were awed by the beautiful glittering room. In order to achieve this ‘wow’ factor, The Prop House created gorgeous overhanging features to fill up the large event space. Two ‘wonderful light’ chandeliers were the focal point of the suspended display, drawing each eye to the ceiling. Eight crystal chandeliers filled the rest of the room creating shiny features throughout the space.

The table centrepieces were set on white tablecloths and chair covers to accentuate the glistening crystals. Three centrepieces, each silver crystal, set on a mirror base with crystal scatters were alternated throughout the room. For entertainment, a champagne stilt walker for pre dinner drinks and a balloon drop for the closing of the night, created stunning and very special additions to the beautiful styling elements. The end result was a gorgeous event that will create lasting memories for the year 12 students and their parents celebrating their last year of high school.
