Award-winning Birmingham business Pretty Odd Props launches online gift store
Pretty Odd Props, the award-winning travelling afternoon tea and prop hire business based in Birmingham have launched their brand new website selling a variety of hand-selected gifts and homewares just in time for the festive period.
Princes Trust-backed and known for their work across charity, business and personal events, Pretty Odd Props first made their name in the themed travelling afternoon tea business, and began venturing into hampers and personalised gifts as an added option alongside their catering and events business a couple of years ago, as they saw a gap in the market for hand-picked quality items that could be personalised. Due to the recent pandemic and the effect it has had on the weddings and events business as a whole, the Birmingham-based business saw it as the perfect opportunity to take things further.
Hollie Price, Founder of Pretty Odd Props commented,
We’ve thought about diversifying for a long time and we knew from catering to others that people want to be able to support local, however with things the way they are at the moment it’s becoming increasingly difficult for people to shop small and have that personalised shopping experience.
We saw the need to diversify as an opportunity to create something that’s centred around the same ethos as our current business model – whether it be to celebrate the little joys, to take time out, or to help people to choose something that will mean something. Our focus is people – our parties all about gathering, but if you can’t do that now, you’re able to show people you care with something lovingly put together for you.
Much like times gone by, we pride ourselves on supplying functional items in beautiful form from our home to yours.”
Supplying a carefully curated selection of provisions, the Company believes in good quality items for a purpose.
The company’s previous exploits include a Wizard of Oz themed open day in aid of Autism Awareness, in collaboration with Sutton Coldfield Council, catering an Afternoon Tea to the Mayor, operating a local Stay and Play group for local mothers, as well as working alongside many local businesses in a local networking group with whom they have won Caterer of the year and a place in the Top 100 UK businesses.

We saw Pretty Odd’s upcoming fifth birthday as an opportunity to refresh our logo and branding in order to help promote our high quality, unusual items to people. Customers can rest assure that they’re supporting an independent local business that prides itself on sourcing eco-friendly items from British suppliers wherever we can.
The new logo and branding needed to reflect this – it’s now less vintage tea party and more that of a Victorian Farmhouse – vibe, that is, a sense of old fashioned products and quality. Our mission is to celebrate the simple things, live life with purpose and to spread joy throughout the home – We’re hoping that there is something for everybody, whether you’re old or new!”
