During my most recent trips, I was most enraptured by the Christmas tree decorations that have been put up by the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Each tree has been specially decorated by various embassies, schools, MNCs, local organizations and government bodies in Singapore. Today, I bring you a special feature for the holiday season with photos taken at the park.
Singapore Orchid Christmas Tree Decoration
The national flower of Singapore is the Vanda Miss Joaquim, a hybrid orchid cultivar. Here is a tree decorated with sprays of Vanda Miss Joaquim, blue lights, purple balls and gold ribbons….a beautiful creation that is truly Singaporean….

Christmas Tree Decorated by My Kids’ School
Well, even though they did not get to decorate it, my kids sure got excited when they saw the tree submitted by their school….
Christmas Wonderland at Singapore Botanic Gardens
All in all, the entire park has been turned into a beautiful Christmas Wonderland.
Most of my photos are taken during the day but I highly recommend that Singaporeans enjoy their experience in the night with sparking lights on the trees. Hmmm….my girl was spotted prancing around in her PJs one night…
My Vote for the Best Christmas Tree Decorations
It was quite hard to pick my favorite tree of them all. In the end, I decided that the one by the Indian embassy demonstrated sincerity in its wishes of unity, goodwill and peace. The tree was decorated with pictures of Indian faces. At the top of the tree was a star with the word “Namaste”. Here is how the tree looks like…
Here is what the sign by the side of the tree said…
This is a close shot of the tree’s decorations depicting the friendly faces of India…
And finally, an early Christmas wish:
May you and your loved ones experience magic, joy, light and beauty this holiday season!
