We at Prestige know a thing or two about throwing an awesome party (flashback to our Double Happiness bash with Lifestyle Asia at China Tang in October). However, planning one can be tiring and stressful, especially at this time of the year. But there’s no need to fret – we’ve done all the hard work for you. Once you’ve ordered the drinks and planned the menu, check our mini list of extras to make your festive fete a truly fun and memorable one.
Get Gorgeous: Makeupbees
Founded by award-winning make-up artist Karen Yiu, Makeupbees’ team of professionals will set up a fabulous beauty booth at your next event – whether formal, themed, corporate or just for fun – and be on hand to give you and your guests glowing cheeks, the perfect pout or any other beauty touch-up that you want. However, if you want to doll up before the event itself, then the staff at Makeupbees’ sister company, Hong Kong Makeup Artist, will happily come straight to your doorstep … it’s as easy as that.
Make Memories: Luster Hashtag Printers
Posting photos on social media is one thing but printing ’em out is pretty groovy, too. Make this happen at your next gathering with Luster’s hashtag printers – the operator(s) will arrive two hours before to set up and will stay on site throughout the event. For this to work, you’ll need a power outlet, an internet connection and a flat surface. All your guests need to do is take a photo and post it to their Instagram account, include the event’s hashtag in the caption and collect a printout … voilà!
Let Them Eat Cake: YYY House of Cakes
What’s a party without a beautiful custom cake? Boutique cakery YYY House of Cakes (set up by mother-of-two Yvette Yan Yi) can whip up a selection of tasty treats for your upcoming soirée. We’re talkin’ unicorn-themed creations, mini boxed cupcakes and other delicious desserts … cinnamon nutmeg doughnuts and s’mores in a cone, anyone? If you’re looking for something a little more festive, then opt for the traditional Christmas chocolate log. Yum!
Get Back To The Drawing Board: Pirate Illustrations
This talented Hong Kong-based artist – who goes by the name of Pirate – offers live illustration services at private parties and fashion or corporate events. If you book her for your next celebration, you and your guests will be able to walk away with a fabulous custom fashion portrait (trust us, you’ll love it). Pirate has done live illustrations at luxury brand events hosted by Christian Louboutin, Dior and Fendi, among others.
