Theme it and send your invites

Once your guest list is ready, set a theme. Get your guests to wear their interpretation of the chosen theme with prompts like “National day”, “orchid”, or “red and white”. Besides the dress code, setting a theme will provide you with a clear direction when it comes to food and drinks, decoration, party games and even music.

Decorations

A little touch such as red and white balloons or LED lights can do wonders to add to the theme and create the right mood for your guests.

Welcome snacks, bites and drinks

There’s no party without food. Besides mains, make sure to prepare appetizers or snacks for hungry guests. Those waiting for latecomers will need something to occupy their hands and mouths. Try appetisers like a cheese platter, fruits, snacks and drinks!

Here's a suggestion: Pick the colour red, for example, and serve a platter of red-hued fruits. Imagine how pretty your plating will look with strawberries, dragonfruits, red grapes and donut peaches!

Instant noodles & frozen food

I was first introduced to the amazing taste of our locally-made Prima Taste pastes by foreigners. I hear of foreigners (Japanese and Hong Kongers included) stocking up on Prima Taste pastes. The same goes for locals who are based overseas. Many friends of mine also bring said pastes during their travels cooking up a storm (and saving money) in their overseas Airbnbs. True stories! Not surprising, considering each paste has hundreds of ingredients packed in them in our science labs.
