Top caterers in Singapore for Christmas or New Year’s
If you’re having a small gathering of four or five, try the limited edition Lumière Boxes from Orange Clove. Packed in a Christmas-themed 3D gift box that lights up from the inside, the specially curated case can be reused or displayed as a collectible festive decoration. There are two six-course options to pick from. Lumière Adore ($168) includes baked honey ginger snapper fillet with fennel salad, and an indulgent dessert duo of almond raspberry Linzer tart cake and Toblerone chocolate cake. We’re going for the Lumière Prestige ($198), which features a cheese box with aged cheddar and brie, and slow-roasted turkey breast with spicy nut butter dip.
Prefer customising your spread? Check out their Festive Indulgence menu that includes traditional festive picks, alongside modern interpretations. The Christmastide Bundle ($168.80) is a wonderful feast of herb-butter-roasted turkey with classic chestnut stuffing, honey baked Christmas ham, and chocolate ganache logcake. There’s also an epicurean cheese and charcuterie platter ($188) that feeds eight to 10 guests! Alternatively, the mini buffets are great for parties of 10. Plan ahead of time and get your order in!
Psst… Can’t get your hands on the Lumière boxes? They’ll be making a reappearance in a festive design for Orange Clove’s upcoming Chinese New Year menu – stay tuned!
Orange Clove’s Christmas items (except the Lumière menus) are available until 10 January 2021.
Love ham? Sunday Catering makes a mean Christmas leg of ham ($260) for your next festive party! The caterer’s version is made tender and less salty by slowly simmering the hams before glazing and roasting. They also make their own marmalade from scratch to get the right balance of citrusy tang and sweetness to compliment the savoury ham. Oh, and did we mention that the ham is a massive 6kg in weight before cooking? It’s big enough to feed 10 very hungry people, and still plenty of leftovers too!
For a complete meal, go all out with the Christmas ham feast ($340), which includes the ham, a bottle of wine, plus sides like buttery mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots. Delivery for the Christmas hams is available from 14 December 2020 to 3 January 2021.
Don’t miss out on the other Christmas sets, too. If you’re celebrating with a cosier group, go for the small wagyu prime rib feast ($275), which feeds two to four people.

The Christmas menus are available until 3 January 2021.
