Brand new flower delivery service The Bloom Room now supplies artfully arranged floral bouquets to homes and offices in the Joo Chiat, Marine Parade, Tampines and Pasir Ris area on a weekly basis. Plans are afoot to expand the service to the rest of the island this year. With subscription prices starting from $25 a week, you can sign up for a minimum of four weeks and receive gorgeous bunches at your door – and you even get a complimentary glass vase with your first delivery for good measure.
Give your guest room the five-star treatment by adding a few simple touches to really make your visitors feel at home. Decorative soaps, reading material and fresh water on the bedside table in a new Snapware Eco Flow carafe, which comes with a convenient glass that fits on top, are just the beginning. Towels folded into the shape of animals are going to require a bit more effort. $25. Available at major department stores including Metro, Tangs and OG.
