Decorating homes for a wishful lunar new year usually brings lots of excitement to families in Singapore.
For 2018 Chinese New Year in Singapore, where would you buy
for your house?
For many of us, Chinese New Year is always greeted with cherished traditions. Red lanterns, symbols of fish, pineapples and Fu are some must-have CNY decorations at home, no matter how time has changed.
We can easily get traditional CNY decorations in many places like NTUC, Giant in Singapore. Even Daiso and Spotlight in Singapore now also have CNY decoration selections to help people celebrate lunar new year.
Yet, we can always explore something unique to make 2018 lunar new year a special one for our family.
Spaceship has found seven new places to buy unique CNY decorations in Singapore, each featuring a different style to suit different hearts:
Whatever style you are looking for, there would be a right CNY decoration just for you to wish you Happy New Year!
1. Noble CNY decorations
Festive lunar new year is a great time to reflect back and thank our loving family for the great support, protection and love that accompanied us throughout the year. Therefore, a shimmer gold surname wall decor (S$50) is a wonderful CNY decoration to glorify our family. Designed by The Kcottage Studio, its metallic shimmery look brings modern homes to a new level with a noble style.
Apart from this, flower lovers may consider a surname wreath (S$75) for your door to usher in big fortune in year of the dog. Bright flowers in the wreath definitely add more life and color to your home. After all, Spring is here and let’s say Hi.

2. Elegant-looking CNY decorations
I remember parents always attach some design with upside-down Fu in red paper on the wall or the door to wish a smooth year with lots of blessings. For 2018 dog year, Spaceship is excited to share another way to immerse your home with Fu.
Sceneshang, a local furniture label that blends Chinese tradition with modernity, has created an elegant trinity blessings serie of Fu that will steal the heart of every new year visitor to your home.
Fu Greeting Card (S$5.90) Fu Brass Frame (S$49) Fu Lacquer Box (S$69)
On this Fu series, we can find birds flitting in a forest of bamboo. In Chinese culture, bamboo symbolizes constant fast improvement and birds are symbolic of good luck. With the trinity series at our home, we may just have more chance to enjoy a prosperous dog year.

3. Wealth-spelling CNY decorations
Pineapple is a must CNY decoration for lunar new year in Singapore, for the simple reason that it is a symbol of wealth. We all have seen pineapple lanterns, table decors and even plates, but this time they come alive.
Pay a short visit to Wood Flower Cottage at 55 Siglap Rd and you will be greeted with this bright and exuberant prosperity pineapple made of yellow chrysanthemums (S$80 for a small set, S$100 for a large set). Your family would be very happy to have this fresh pineapple at home, especially when you bring the one with Hwang Hwang tangerine dogs (S$100 per set) home.

A lunar new year would not be complete without a red in your house. Take the Ang Ku Kueh cushion (S$29.90) in joyous red and may the whole family enjoy longevity.
Chinese idiom 年年有余（鱼） expresses the wish to have fortune in life. That is why fish is a popular CNY decoration.

Next year, you may just find you are richer than you think.
