"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."

Monique Pratt

Director, Special Events

Monique Pratt has always loved creating.   Even as a child, she transformed spaces, savoring the pleasure of returning to rooms that reflected her personality and tastes.  Under an inspiring art teacher, Sandra Illingsworth, Monique discovered a love for drawing, oil painting, and batik work.  In high school, she joined her first Junkanoo group, learning the craft from the ground up.  Constructing spectacular costumes and floats for these national festivals, Monique found she had an uncommon ability to interpret visual and 3D themes.   

Working with a prominent land developer early in her career exposed Monique to architecture.  Soon she could  walk into any room and envision how she would bring the space to life.  

As a young creative, she explored various other industries, but always returned to art, her first love.

Monique married and raised three beautiful sons, which offered plenty of opportunity to express her surging creativity.  Ultimately, this journey led her back into business. “When guests came to our parties, they  experienced a whole concept, designed around a theme.  Whether a birthday, sports event, or holiday, our friends became totally immersed in the event.  They began asking me to do parties, and the work took off.”  

From these private events, Monique launched a freelance career in visual merchandising and interior decor.  For fifteen years, her canvas included windows and displays for the city’s top resorts, luxury department stores, and boutiques.

Monique’s avant-garde displays have evoked powerful emotional connections.  One couple has returned to The Bahamas year after year, creating holiday greeting cards around her displays.  After Monique decorated an upscale Chinese restaurant for its New Year celebrations, the client called back to purchase the entire installation.  The seamless decor became a permanent feature in their glamorous space. 

Her skill also attracted recognition among event planners and destination management companies who hired her to design and execute over-the-top looks, on time and on budget.  Monique Pratt’s imagination, coupled with warmth and attention to detail, made her a preferred event specialist.

“I can set up for anything from an intimate table to a state dinner, but I prefer working with teams of people to develop an event.  I enjoy mentoring staff, and find that most people like learning as they work.  I love to see people happy.  Nothing satisfies like the “wow” factor, once my team and I have finished a project.  I love surpassing our clients’ expectations.”

Monique has volunteered with two major Bahamian festivals, Junkanoo and Junkanoo Carnival, teaching the craft to youth, and training judges for both events. 

In 2020, Monique joined The Green House to offer premium event decor and event planning services.  “Challenge motivates me.  As an artist, I am drawn to so-called impossible projects.  Those scenarios unlock my imagination, and my mind begins to engineer solutions.  What I respect about this floral studio is the collaboration with other seasoned creatives.  Our experience gives us a real edge in this industry.  We love our clients and vendors, and love what we are able to produce together.”
