Celebrating Our First Anniversary in Singapore

It’s amazing how time flies! A year ago we were getting married at Purdue University among our family and friends. It was a super hot day, topping out at 104 degrees, but made the most of it and had a blast!

After one year of wedded bliss…

To celebrate our anniversary, we went to the “vintage” champagne brunch at Greenhouse in the Ritz-Carlton Singapore. Brunch is huge in Singapore! This was definitely a special occasion so we went top notch with the champagne brunch to celebrate. It was all you can eat and drink. I would reccomned this brunch for anyone celebrating a special occasion or if you have special guests in town. I called a few days ahead of time and got a reservation. The Sunday Champagne brunch runs from 12:00 to 3:30 and costs about S$160 per person, while this is pricey, you can easily spend this much on the alcohol alone. We had reservations right at noon and were there until 3:30.

It was a nice and relaxing atmposphere and our glasses were never empty as there were endless pours of Moet champagne! We enjoyed the selection of food. There was a lot of seafood(I tried, Taylor is not a fan of, but I know we have a lot of family out there that would have loved this!), meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, and desserts.

Here are our pictures from our day! Starting off are some pictures of the food stations.

We tried a little bit of everything on our plates. I even went outside my comfort zone a bit with the seafood.

Our drinks! Champagne, mojitos and a strawberry daiquiri type drink. IMG_1271 - CopyIMG_1293 - CopyIMG_1302

They gave us a cute little dessert. The candle is kind of funny, it felt more like a birthday treat than an anniversary, but still was a kind gesture.

And lastly, instead of keeping the top layer of cake on our wedding night(how would we even gotten that back to DC or to Singapore?!?!) we purchased a bottle of Hawaiian pineapple champagne on our honeymoon. This bottle has traveled a far distance! Since we have had so much champagne at brunch we will be saving this for celebrating in our new home here. That bottle will hopefully be popped in a few short weeks! Woohoo!
