Nuffnang has always celebrated our birthdays in style, and our 8th birthday bash was certainly no exception.
The place was done up beautifully in shades of white, gold and silver, the theme of our birthday bash, courtesy of the folks over at Give Fun and Assemble Happinest.
Bloggers were greeted by an infinity backdrop painstakingly prepared over many nights by our advertising operations team.
A close up of the infinity board! The infinity sign comprises of individual photographs of our bloggers.
Pristine white tablecloth? Checked. Classy decorations? Checked. Fresh flowers? Checked. We could not have asked for a more perfect table setting.
The Nuffnang Singapore family out in full force.
While mingling at the reception area, we also had loads of fun at the green screen photobooth set up by none other than Hello Stranger.
The green screen is the first of its kind in Singapore, and it meant that not only were our pictures captured in stills, we also had the priviledge of seeing our silly antics acted out in gifs!
As our bloggers got seated, they were greeted by an inconspicuous box with their name on it. It was actually our 8 blogger essentials! The box was put together by our partners and us as a well-deserved present to our bloggers, comprising of 8 essentials every blogger needs in their blogging journey.

Lunch was a hearty affair accompanied by renditions of popular pop songs by the lovely HubbaBubbas.
There were also sweet treats galore from Butter Studios to satisfy our sweet tooth after lunch.
Our first lucky draw which had Bossming more excited than anyone else.
It saw Velda walking away with a Philips Handheld Steamer…
…While Nadnut found herself winning the Philips Air Purifier!
Soap making activity commenced after lunch with the Soap Factory as we tried our hand at making our very own soap with The Soap Factory.
Some of our bloggers doing what they do best.
Our second lucky draw where Jessica (more commonly known as Tippytapp) won herself a Philips Noodle Maker!
Becks, on the other hand, won our second prize of Philips Airfryer!
And the grand prize goes to…Juli! The lucky girl won herself a Samsung 27″ Minimalist FHD monitor, no less!
One of the highlights of the day was a video where our bloggers (and now you!) took a peek inside what goes on in a typical nuffies’ day at Nuffnang. Talent and communication, sales, advertising operations, these are the unseen heroes that work together in synergy to keep the company up and running.
As per tradition, Bossming also gave a speech, but with a twist – we wanted to make a collective impact on Instagram! Even if it was just for a while (hurhur).
We prepped for what was to be 70 people, influencers and Nuffies alike, posting our #nuffnang8irthday pictures altogether on Instagram at exactly 3.08p.m!
You know what they say; there is strength in numbers. At 3.08pm, my newsfeed on Instagram and Facebook slowly flooded with an explosion of #nuffnang8irthday and #nuffnangsg postings!
Even those who couldn’t be with us physically posted from different corners of the world! It was certainly one of the more memorable moments in our history of birthday celebrations.
What’s a birthday without a birthday cake?
It takes many things to build a company; a leap of faith, a sense of fortitude, an unwavering spirit, but most of all a dedicated team that perseveres on even in trying and difficult times.
These people are our staff, our bloggers – and you. These are the people who have allowed Nuffnang to bloom into what it is today. These are the people who have allowed the future we envisioned to become a reality.
From a strength of only 6 people to having over 200 full time employees worldwide, we have traveled far and have much to be grateful for.
Thank you for celebrating our birthdays with us with us through the years, and here’s to the many more (stylish) celebrations to come.
Happy 8th birthday to us!
