5 places to help you throw your dream Christmas party

It’s the time of the year again, where we prepare for that one all important day, the 25th of December. I love this period where all the festive decorations are up, and Christmas songs are blasting in every mall and supermarket. Because you know, 1 day to celebrate Christmas is just too short! This year, Christmas falls on a Friday which is great because it means an extended Christmas celebration!

How will you be celebrating Christmas? If you’re planning to throw your own Christmas party, I say go for it! It’s more economical, you get to have more food and you can escape the traffic jams of Orchard Road. Actually it’s not too difficult these days to quickly put together a home party. There are so many places where you can pre-order your Christmas turkeys, Christmas platters and other festive goodies. Some have even come up with new twists to traditional favourites in a bid to help you wow your guests. Here are 5 places you should check out for your Christmas goodies.

Dulux Let’s Colour [Part 3] : My transformed room after using Dulux Painting services

After the nail biting decision of going for a really dark wall colour, we waited for the good people of Dulux to come turn our white walls into the beautiful image we had in mind. The painters arrived at 9.30 am on the dot as arranged, and immediately got cracking. They looked very experienced and seemed pretty methodological in their process.

Dulux Painting Serice (2)

First things first, armed with a ton of old newspapers and plastic sheets, they got right down to covering all the surfaces that were not meant to be painted. Where the cupboard edges met the walls, they were meticulous in ensuring a straight line. If only the HDB painters had put such heart into their work, I wouldn’t be “boasting” cupboards with white splotches now. At one point, the painters even asked me who it was that did the last paint job. I gave them one word, “HDB”, and they nodded at me with sympathy.

Ethnicraft Singapore – Emorational Furniture

I have been fervently scouring the furniture stores in the last few weeks to jazz up my upcoming study room that #DuluxSG recently helped me paint in the colour America’s Cup. I have never been a fan of contemporary styles that feature glass, plastic or leather. Instead, I like stately looking rooms with a touch of Parisien flaire or old-world charm. I also love the woody look so I do like Scandinavian designs as well. The irritating thing is that it is an uphill task to make the tiny apartment that we live in stately looking in the literal sense. Hanging an ornate mirror on the wall practically takes up the entire wall already! So it’s becoming clearer to me by the day that I may have to give up my stately looking furniture and just stick with Scandinavian. (I am however not giving up my dream of having a study desk 2 metres length x 1 metre depth!)

IKEA is one place that would definitely spring to mind when you think Scandinavian furniture. They have some good pieces at affordable prices if you keep your eyes peeled, but IKEA’s certainly not the only place to sell affordable Scandinavian furniture. I just found out last week about the existence of Ethnicraft. Ethnicraft is an international furniture company started in Belgium. The furniture sold at Ethnicraft is made of solid teak wood either reclaimed or from plantations in Java in Indonesia. Teak is a dense hardwood with high natural oil content, naturally repelling moisture. Apparently, no other wood shares teak’s exceptional strength and durability.

I love the furniture designs offered by Ethnicraft! I wish I could buy up everything! Some ladies buy branded bags but I’m the type that would consider it money well spent (not splurge!) if I spent it on good quality, long lasting furniture that would make me happy every time I step into the house. Zoomed to the Ethnicraft furniture showroom in Eunos within 3 days of checking them out online. You can scroll down to check out the photos or go to their website to look at individual pieces.
