Dahlia Dreams Floral Display
The Lunar New Year kicked off with delightful dahlias blossoming at Dahlia Dreams floral display from 19 January to 4 March 2018. The display was inspired by the picturesque landscape of Chinese imperial gardens, and featured elegant dahlias, camellias and bromeliads in a courtyard garden setting.
“The Chinese imperial landscape, colourful dahlias and cool temperature seemed to have transported us to another place and era. It almost doesn’t feel like we are in Singapore! The appearance of God of Fortune mascot also adds a nice festive touch to the Flower Dome!” says Mr Lee, a Family membership cardholder who visited during the lunar new year period to soak in the festivities.
Spring Surprise 2018 and Hong Bao Giveaway
Members and visitors to the Gardens were treated to an array of festive performances during Lunar New Year. Headlining the show was Singapore's first UV Lotus Dragon Dance and Northern Lions which was truly a feast for the eyes!
There were also plenty of things to do at the Gardens. These included complimentary do-it-yourself clay mask painting, Chinese knots and Chinese calligraphy in Flower Dome as part of Spring Surprise programmes and activities from 17 – 25 February.
Spotted at the queue for the Calligraphy booth on the fourth day of Lunar New Year was Mr Chua, his wife and two kids.
“We visited the Flower Dome today to enjoy the Dahlia Dreams floral display and soak in the Lunar New Year festivities in the Gardens. We have been members for the past few years, and have coming over during major floral displays and events like Chinese New Year, Christmas and Mid-Autumn Festival. The festive craft booths and calligraphy artwork for members in the Flower Dome is a useful initiative. The children enjoyed the DIY face mask painting as well.” says Mr Chua who holds a Family membership.
Last but not least, members who visited Friends of the Gardens Centre during the Lunar New Year period received a complimentary set of 8 exclusive Gardens by the Bay red packets.
PROSPERITY PACK GIVEAWAY FOR MEMBERS
The Year of the Dog was made even more bountiful for members who received member-exclusive prosperity packs on the two festive weekends during the Lunar New Year period.
Mr Chan was one of the members who arrived early at the Friends of the Gardens booth on 18 February.
“I came here to catch the festive performances at the Supertree Grove. The Prosperity Pack came in handy, we can now enjoy the festive snacks and drinks while watching the open-air performances!” shared a very upbeat Mr Chan.
The Prosperity Pack Giveaway for members was held at the Supertree Grove on February 17, 18, 24 and 25.
FESTIVE GIFT CARD PROMOTIONAL ROADSHOW AND SANTA MEET-AND-GREET

Members also got up close and personal with Santa from Lapland in the exclusive members-only Meet-and-Greet session. In case some of you are still wondering, yes, he is really the Santa from Lapland who had specially flown to Singapore to visit us!
