Chinese New Year Table Decoration

Chinese New Year Table Decoration

This post is supposed to be for our February 2018 blog post and we would like to take this chance to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year before it ends. We hope you have had a great Chinese New Year celebration for those who celebrated this festival.

 

It is the last day of Chinese New Year 2018 today, which is also called Chap Goh Meh. Chap Goh Meh means “the fifteenth night” in Chinese. Chinese New Year lasts for fifteen days every year. We wrote about Chinese New Year in our previous blog post last year and also about the seventh day of Chinese New Year, which is supposed to be a birthday celebration for everyone according to the Chinese tradition.

 

This year, we did some table decoration for Chinese New Year. We decorated the dinner table with some decoration relevant to the Chinese New Year theme, which usually involves gold and red colour.

By decorating your table, it makes your table look more interesting and enhances your food presentation. Instead of just a plain and simple table, you have a better looking table once it is decorated. It sure will leave a good impression on your guests dining at the table. The decoration gives the table a brighter overall outlook. Just to give you an idea, here is a picture of how the table looks like before and after the decoration has been added.

It definitely looks better once it is decorated. If you are interested in having a decorated table for your next event or celebration and you do not want to do it yourself (perhaps you are too busy or do not know how to), then we can always offer our services to you. We can decorated tables and your venue for events, not just for Chinese New Year, but also for other occassions.

 

Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year and a Happy Chap Goh Meh. May you have a prosperous, joyful year with good health, plenty of wealth, happiness and success.

Ice Cream Day

Ice Cream Day

Today is Ice Cream Day. It is not Ice Cream Day because it is a day to eat ice cream but rather it is a celebration. You can always enjoy ice cream anytime you like. Some ice cream have milk and this is not good news for those who are allergic to milk. Natural ice cream and sorbet would be a better choice for them.

 

We have an ice cream recipe which is a sorbet. Even if your ice cream vendors are disappointing you with their ice cream or you cannot go to an ice cream shop to get your ice cream, you can always make yourself this ice cream. You can also make this to serve to your guests during your party or events.

 

Ingredients :

1 banana

Goji berry for garnishing and flavour

Honey (optional)

 

  1. Peel and mash the banana.
  2. Put the mashed banana into a container suitable for freezing.
  3. Put some goji berries as topping on the mashed banana.
  4. Freeze the container with your ingredients in it. When the ingredients are fully frozen, you have your sorbet.
  5. Serve.

 

If you are using honey, you can either add honey during the mashing process or you can drizzle honey onto your sorbet when serving. Ensure that you mix the honey and banana well if you are including honey into the banana during the mashing process.

 

There you go, a sorbet recipe so simple you can make it on your own. Happy Ice Cream Day.

Event Tip : Using Picture For Your Event’s Marketing Materials

Here is our event tip for this week, which is about using pictures for your event’s marketing materials for example to promote your event in a flyer or on your social media :

 

” Use an original and clear picture for the marketing materials and for your event page online. Avoid using watermarked pictures of other companies for your event.

 

If you do not have an original picture of your own, you can purchase pictures online. It is advisable to use a clear picture to promote your event so that it looks better for you. It will also be more professional to use a picture which is not watermarked with other company’s name or organisation.
