Let’s throwback to merry making growing up. A birthday party? Drape streamers, blow up balloons and add a khoi bag. A wedding? Bring in fresh flowers and hang up bright lights. But TBH streamers unfasten easy and flowers… they wilt. Resultant, handiwork down the drains. The need of the hour was something different. Fuss free. Celebrations warranted a makeover.
Version 2.0? Desi Lantern to the rescue.
A bane, erstwhile boon, of uploading pictures on social media? The need to do things differently every damn time. Better than before. Better than thy neighbour. Which puts merry making, like the #OOTD, right on top of the *mustn’t repeat* list.
Desi Lantern plays handyman. With bespoke services for decor and design remaining their mantra, gig after gig. Sunaina Agarwal and Priti Agarwalla- two stunning Calcutta women- tailor each event to taste. Like the travel themed Wanderlust, their recent blogger meet-n-greet. From the invite to the gift bags, everything induced in me a state of… wanderlust.
Moments from the evening…
Honestly, it’s not easy. The trick to a successful event lies in the guests feeling pampered. Leaving with content smiles and a stomach full of great food. While half of the credit goes to a good host, event planning take the other share.
Desi Lantern, for me, makes me confident that were I to host an event- be it boo’s birthday or a friend’s baby shower- I’ll have a partner in actuality. A partner who seeks my advice but nudges me to sit back. Relax. Get that blow dry done before the party. And then walk in to slay!
