It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Here in Singapore, a white Christmas might be too far-fetched of a dream to have, but your dream Christmas party, that’s perfectly within reach! Gear up this holiday season with these Christmas party must-haves!
1. Snacks & Drinks
Autumn has its Pumpkin Spice Latte, but Christmas brings a whole arsenal of season-specific flavours — peppermint, cloves, and cinnamon, to say the least! There’s no shortage of Christmas-themed snacks and drinks to choose from, as these flavours are easily found across a wide variety of tasty treats.
Go for some gingerbread cookies, fruitcake, and mince pies for a classic spread. Top that off with traditional eggnog or mulled wine, some candy canes, and you have yourself a merry little Christmas snack spread. Alternatively, you can explore more trendy treats by mixing in more modern flavours, like coconut with cinnamon or raspberry truffle.
2. Log Cake
A good Christmas spread is never complete without the piece de résistance, a log cake to share with the table. This time-honoured Christmas tradition dates back to 19th century France. It represents the yule log, the burning of which symbolised the new year to come, ushering in good luck for the family. Here at Whyzee, we have a variety of classic log cakes, from the traditional Chocolate to the modern and fresh Lychee Rose, freshly baked daily and delivered within hours!
3. Set the Mood
Christmas is a period where we get together with our loved ones, to spend time and share a meal. While the warmth of a hearth might be too much for our Singaporean climate, a heart-warming and cosy space is still something we can achieve. Fairy or Christmas string lights are an easy way to create a comforting and cheerful atmosphere — just turn down the ceiling lights to accentuate the soft, gentle illumination from the string lights.
Add to the ambience of the party with some scented candles in the classic Christmas scents of pine, frankincense, peppermint and cinnamon. You can also throw on some Christmas tunes, which is a sure-fire way to get everyone in the Yuletide mood.
4. Decorate the House
It might be a little difficult to have a full-sized Christmas tree here in Singapore, but that doesn’t have to put a stop to your decorating fever!
Wreaths, garlands and tinsel are traditional, of course. Hang a wreath on your door to welcome your guests, and line the doors, windows, or your tables with garlands and tinsel to bring in the festive cheer. For a personalised and heartfelt touch, you can also spice things up with our wide range of personalised party balloons in Singapore! From confetti balloons to customisable balloon bouquets, get some in red, gold and green — classic Christmas tones that will certainly add a lovely pop of colour to your living room!
5. Christmas Gifts Under the Tree
Last but certainly not least, we come to the most exciting part of a Christmas party. Everyone loves receiving gifts, and here at Whyzee, we have a little something for all your loved ones. Looking for something romantic? Surprise your spouse with a preserved flower dome — a timeless and elegant gift and a lovely symbol of devotion.
Not sure what to get your niece, nephew, or young one? Why not get a soft and oh-so-lovable Jellycat plush toy like these sweet personalised bunnies that animal-loving little ones will adore. Plushies aren’t just for children, though — this stuffed espresso cup is a delightful addition to any desk, perfect for any coffee fanatic in Singapore!
