Float away with me

Floaties are the perfect addition to any pool party and these colourful and Instagrammable inflatables will be a total hit with your guests. Lounge around in style with rose gold flamingos, rainbow unicorns and even pretzel-shaped floats. Not everyone has a pool in their backyard (or even a backyard!), so you’ll be glad to know that Letsfloatsg offers rental services where you can choose from over 40 float designs in its catalogue. They are available for rent for up to seven days and come with a free electric pump if you’ve paid for more than three floats.


Aww Snap!

Photobooth fun

Having a Harry Potter-themed party? Or a funky, retro-styled birthday bash? Whatever you’ve got in mind, the folks behind Aww Snap! have got you covered with a multitude of props and backdrops that fit any celebration. Offering two types of photobooth packages – bespoke and no-frills – Aww Snap! allows you to either design your own backdrop and props, or select themes available in its inventory. But here’s the best part: the bundle is comprised of an optional GIF booth and unlimited filmstrips so you can snap and print as many photos as you’d like.


Loco Loco

Go loco for churros

Sure, buffets are great – but finger foods are a necessity at every party. Fill up tummies with free-flow bite-sized churros that are always perfectly deep-fried. A local spin on the Spanish dessert, these churros come in flavours like pandan. Have them plain or drench your golden nuggets with sauces such as chocolate, caramel and gula Melaka. The churros live station from Loco Loco sets you back at least $480, but it comes with a fryer, two chefs, foldable tables, serving cups and sauces. For an extra $0.10 a cup, you can customise your own party stickers.


Kafve Coffee

Kafve Coffee

Something's brewin'

Dedicated to sharing its passion for the bean, Kafve Coffee only brews handcrafted and quality joe that’ll have you sipping on more than just a single cuppa. Other than espresso-based options, its menu also presents non-coffee drinks, ranging from hot chocolate and matcha latte to a wide selection of tea.

Henna art

Whether you’re throwing a hen’s night for your bride-to-be BFF or just planning a get-together with the ladies, Zulaikha Hanif and her team at Zulustyle will pamper you and your girls right. Boasting henna art for any occasion such as bridal showers, birthdays and Diwali celebrations, the studio provides various patterns like Indian-style and Arabic.
