8 CNY Decoration Stores In Singapore 2023 To Give Your Home Extra Huat

CNY Decoration in Singapore 2023


It happens routinely every year – once Christmas is over, the shiny baubles and tinsel strands in malls start making way for flashy red and gold couplets and “福” (luck) signs to signify the start of the Chinese New Year period. *cue “dong dong dong qiang” music*

Instead of just admiring the festive displays at Chinatown, go one step further to invite extra huat to your home this Lunar New Year by decking it out with ready-made CNY decor – no time-consuming DIY-ing with red packets needed. Check these 8 CNY decoration stores in Singapore:


1. CGS Party (Chin Giap Soon) – Banners & plushies


CGS Party (Chin Giap Soon) is a lesser-known party shop quietly tucked away in KINEX. During regular periods, you’ll find their shelves stacked high with colourful kids’ knick knacks like beads, pinwheels, and bubbles. But come Chinese New Year, and their entire storefront will be shrouded in bright red from lanterns and hanging scrolls adorned with gold foil.

If not Chinatown, where else would one make a beeline for CNY-related items?

Of course, traditional Chinese trinkets are available all year round here. But every year without fail, there’s usually a huge CNY bazaar in Chinatown in the People’s Park area (outside OG) with even more of such goodies.

Needless to say, the festivities are always in full swing here and you’ll be able to find all your ong lai lanterns, wall decor, dangling charms, and faux firecrackers at one go without any fuss.

Check out the CNY light-up too that features the year’s zodiac animal.

Besides decorations, you can look forward to pasar malam stalls selling Chinese New Year snacks, traditional and modern garb, house plants, and furniture.

You’re probably familiar with SKP if your mum used to put together goodie bags packs for your kindergarten classmates during your birthday. Other than their affordable range of balloons, confetti poppers, and small stationery items, they also have a sizable selection of couplet banners, good luck signs, and Chinese New year streamers to hang across your hallways.

They are known for decorating large-scale events, notably at shopping malls during festive seasons, so their catalogue of decor and props is extensive.

Check out more items and prices on the All Events Decor Chinese New Year catalogue.

8. Chain supermarkets – Cheap & convenient


Available at Giant: zodiac-themed wall decor, mandarin orange bags, and fortune knots.

Trust a supermarket to have everything. If you’re short on time, simply pop by your nearest neighbourhood Fairprice, Cold Storage, or Giant to pick up a few affordable CNY essentials while you’re grabbing your groceries and last-minute pineapple tarts.

Pretty much every outlet will have the bits and bobs you’re looking for, though the larger ones in malls will probably have a wider selection that includes plants like potted bamboo and pussy willow.

Juz My Party, as its name suggests, is a party supply store located about 10 minutes from Eunos MRT station. They’re especially big on Halloween and Christmas, but do have a yearly CNY selection too.
