Orchard Road Christmas Decorations 2007

This year, the theme is “A Fairytale Christmas.”

This is inspired by a fairytale romance of Prince Noel, the toy soldier and our beautiful Princess Ballerina.

There will be a grand celebration arch right at the junction of Scotts Road and Orchard Road. This is essentially the majestic palace of Prince Noel and from the towers, this is where he will catch sight of the beautiful Princess Ballerina.

In two beautiful set-pieces that we have, one is of a glittering carousel where the Princess Ballerina dances all day to music from an enchanted harp, which is just across the road at Shaw Centre. (Sorry did not capture the harp)

The story goes that Prince Noel falls in love with her instantly and decides to ask her to marry him on Christmas Eve. And on Christmas Eve, he tries to visit her to ask for her hand in marriage but is heartbroken to find her missing. And so advised by the enchanted singing harp, he follows the snowflakes trail, which is part of the décor on the Christmas light-up.
So he embarks on an adventure to search for her and midway he chances upon a crystal ball which shows her dancing away in a distant land.

And after a long walk, he actually stops at a Crystal Forest, which is at the junction of Heeren, and this is where there are four ice towers, where in one he actually sees a reflection of her.

And on one of the other towers there is this beautiful Crystal Fairy,
which will give Prince Noel a hand with her magical chariot led by a flock of swans to aid him in his quest.

And finally Prince Noel finds the Princess Ballerina at Marina Bay, where there is another beautiful arch set in poinsettia floral balls highlighted with red and gold jewels. (sorry , no photo at marina, will try to get one)
Road leading to Marina, beautifully decorated.
