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, and also party games.
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 appetizers like a cheese platter, snacks and more snacks!
Support local and ensure your guests are helping themselves to Made in Singapore snacks like these scrumptious bites.
Keep the party going with the right drinks. Be consistent. A National Day party calls for locally-made brews like these non-alcoholic homegrown selections for both kids and adults.
