There’s nothing like #Chillinglikeavillain in the comfort of home – better still, a group of whacky friends doused in entertaining absurdity, stacks of your much loved liquor and lots to gnaw on. Well, Delhi home party scene has definitely soared high to unbolt the realm 2.0. Not only do Delhites love to throw house parties but they like to do it with an immaculate approach. Nothing less than perfect is counted as ideal. Passionate ideas stirred up well with gallant hospitality and a wee bit of flamboyance makes for a blend you’d barely put out of your mind let alone palette
Let’s decode a typical home party scene for you:
Thematically planning a party is quite hip – it’s interactive fun. One tends to break ice with unfamiliar people effortlessly considering everyone gets to share the experience and space collectively. From a horror theme to masquerade to just hat and tie, thematic parties work in favor of familiarizing friends from all walks of lives turning the home scene convivial. Lights have to be taken damn sincerely, mind you!
Drinks play the foremost role in ascertaining a high-on-power night. For people to enjoy and get a little amusing, open out and crack dim jokes, drinks are the catalyst. Delhi people are known for their gregarious and hospitable nature and as a result, personalized bars at home parties play the lead role.
Gnawing on gorgeous antipasto while enjoying your favorite grog, at the side of easy cruising, is a time-honored custom. And Delhi is the nucleus for scrumptious food – I still have to come across one typical family here who’d not compel food down your throat in the name of inexorable warmth. So, a house party, habitually, would have easy finger-food, canapés before the succulent Biryani is served (most classically). A lot of people choose grandiose layouts with hors d'oeuvres or outside catering depending on the intent of the revelry.
It gets very important to make sure your home becomes an abode for friends to chill and relax – the idea is to give them a good time, a time they’d want to replicate. Few people go an extra mile to alter their stunning abodes into snug heavens… few like to keep it simple and relaxed with good seating arrangements, rugs and cushions thrown around for indolent lounging.
High-octane music, just about a jarring -club-night-feel, is what Delhites are famous for switching their home parties over to. Getting drunk and dancing the night away till wee hours is the basic idea of fun. Madness overload is what makes any home party sought-after – few play dim-witted games and few just do stupid things making memories that last a lifetime.
Decking up for house parties in the choicest of ensembles is very Delhi. Everyone goes an extra mile to dress up, to look unsurpassed for the night even if that just means chilling within four walls – we like to dress up for our friends. We are dedicated narcissists and overbearance is just synonymous with modesty. Dressing up special for someone’s party shows love towards the host and reflects the importance of the person in your life, just saying!
