Even though paper plates might be the go-to option when serving your guests, why not host them with a little more sophistication this time? Not only will they be impressed by the plate’s cute pineapple design, but they’ll also get to snap lots of Instagramable pictures of their food!  

You can get this microwavable CNY-themed plate from The Little Dröm Store’s Strangely collection for $12.90 each here. What’s more, there are even ‘Huat Ah’ keychains, notebooks and tote bags that you can check out on their website!

Here’s another great alternative if you don’t wish to head outside to shop for wall decorations – simply pick any design that catches your eye on The KCottage Studio’s website, personalise your chosen wall decoration with a text of your choice, and they will then deliver it to you in a few days. Doesn’t that sound amazingly helpful to the lazy ones out there? /winks/

KCottage Studio’s wall decorations and plaques are not only famous for their pretty designs, but also because they’re all made of long-lasting materials like plywood and acrylic, with prices ranging from $50 to $80.
