There is nothing more refreshing when your guests have just stepped out of their cars, walked to your home then to be greeted with a welcome drink. Whether it is a fresh fruit juice, a cold young coconut or a glass of champagne, it shows your warmth to your guests. And we think for everyone to relax and mingle, a glass of bubbles is a perfect choice.

2. Casual & intimate food displays
For those intimate gatherings, we love to have space to talk to everyone present. That is the reason why we love to display our food kind of buffet style, it’s more fun & casual! The space of a buffet is spacious, convenient for everyone to move, attendees at the party can help themselves, they take the food they want, continue socialising while enjoying all the delicious dishes you have set out. Depending on the overall taste of your guests, you can arrange many different options of cuisines, from Asian styled dishes or more European way. If you want to try a European buffet, we love a cheese & charcuterie platter with tasty cold cuts, nuts, and all different kinds of cheeses. Everyone easily gathers around this large delicious platter, eating and chatting. We really do love a buffet style dinner or lunch to keep it fun, and the food is always a huge success!
