To help complete the decor look for your Egyptian-inspired Quince party, props can help set the ambience. Your guests will feel as if they are sitting by the Pyramids of Giza instead of a banquet hall!

Props help any event make a good first impression.  It is a good way to pull any theme together. However most quinceañeras struggle with the vision for their day.  They are not sure how to pull together the theme. Props can be life-size statues, movie props, or custom pieces.  Props are a good way to draw the eyes to look and compliment the décor in the room. They can brand the theme of your event, create photo opportunities, or simply be décor. It also sets the tone of the event.  When you walk into a space, the décor is the first thing you see.
