Admit it. You miss hanging out with a group of friends outside. You miss the gatherings, the laughter, and the catch-ups. It is almost impossible to gather now unless you cap the number of people to 5 and below.
But parties are still possible when you are at home. Wait, home parties? Does it mean… catering vendors, drink vendors, snacks preparations and….. so on and so forth?
Well, home parties are made easy when you have PartyDiva.Co. PartyDiva.Co is an e-commerce marketplace that brings merchants, consumers and partners together in a seamless event planning experience. It is a one-stop solution to gifting, events and party planning – and not just for home parties! They have a comprehensive list of vendors for all your celebratory needs. From getting a host to photobooths, event props, PartyDiva.Co is truly your partner in celebrations, and they were there every step of the way for me as well!
Just last weekend, James and I hosted a house party with my in-laws and his cousin. It was a belated birthday celebratory dinner for his mom and an early National Day celebration for us.
I was very impressed as I could get all my food catering, cake, cocktails and party decoratives from PartyDiva.Co. I did not even have to source for them separately!
My in-laws were filled with praises for AMICI Catering. It was our first order from this East-meets-West fusion boutique caterer we chanced upon on PartyDiva.Co with 15 elegantly crafted dishes that we could select from.. We ordered the mini gourmet 5-course National Day buffet ($108+) and it was delivered (for free!) right to our door – hot, fresh, and nicely decorated with vegetables and cherry tomatoes.
To top off the feast, the mini buffet came with a complimentary six-inch Raspberry Lychee Rose cake that was both light and rich in flavour, with a fruity floral fragrance lingering after every bite – what a great way to end the meal on a sweet note.
I love my kuehs and so do the elderlies at home. They commented that the specially handmade Merlion Ang Ku Kuehs and Heart Kueh Lapis ($37.50) from Kueh Ho Jiak were very flavourful. We wiped out this celebratory platter of kuehs in 10 minutes even though there was only 5 of us. Lol.
The highlight for me was the limited-edition Nasi Lemak Cake ($132) from Nasi Lemak Indulgence. I love Nasi Lemak a lot so I was really looking forward to this.
I thought that it was only chicken + ikan billis + peanuts on top but wow, I was mind blown when I cut the cake open.
There were THICK layers of egg and muar otah!!! I swear this was SO DAMN GOOD. You would think that with such a modern twist, the traditional taste of the Nasi Lemak would be compromised but it was not nearly the case. Made with a sincerity and nostalgia for authenticities, the Nasi Lemak Cake was truly a sensory experience. I even saved half of it for my own parents and they couldn’t stop going “wow”, “this is good!”, “very nice!!”
James, on the other hand, was more interested in the drinks.
We had Pétale Tea’s limited-edition National Day gift set ($65) and summer exclusive cocktails, the Nana Sling ($90, set of 5x120ml bottles) from Three Wisemen. He finished a bottle of it even before our guests arrive. Lol. Nana Sling is specially concocted for Singapore’s 55th birthday by the way! It comprises of Brugal Rum infused with banana leaves. The tropical mix was also especially refreshing with its combinative blend of zesty Cointreau, freshly squeezed lemon juice and homemade orange blossom water. As for Petale Tea’s exclusive “My Fair Lady” tea ball, you can see the flowers bloom after you add hot water to the flower! Pretty Instagram-worthy!
If you are observant enough, you will realize that I have a few decorations topped on my food! These thematic cake and food toppers are from PartyDiva.Co! This National Day will feature their very own limited-edition party bundle ($100) comprising of food and cake toppers, a bunting and cupcake holder that features notable Singapore icons such as the Merlion and Gardens by the Bay, as well as local slangs such as “Relax Lah” and “Shiok Ah” to make this celebration a true Singaporean affair. The addition of these decoratives add to the visual experience of the celebration, making the party even more memorable!
They even offer customised stickers which you can use to decorate your photo frame before you snap and save that precious celebratory moment with your phone! Simply scan the QR code to https://partydiva.co/sg55 on your phone, click on the stickers set of your choice and allow the website to access your camera. This is a very good idea for wedding lunch/dinner actually! Plus it is so easy to use, even the elderlies at home had fun with it!
All in all, I’ll strongly recommend PartyDiva.Co to anyone who needs a fuss-free and seamless party planning experience. Whether it is an upcoming party, wedding or gathering, PartyDiva.Co is truly a partner in celebration.
