You can’t leave the house without choking on a thick cloud of smoke. Your dog won’t stop peeing in the house thanks to the firecrackers. You’ve lost more money than you knew you even had on card parties. It’s definitely Diwali.

After experiencing all this and more, you’ve woken up and realised today is Diwali! Last day to throw something together, last day to awkwardly wear your kurta or salwar kameez before they go back to gathering dust in your closet. What are you going to do?

Don’t worry we got you covered.


Possibly the most important ingredient for your last-minute gathering is the alcohol. If you haven’t had time to do any shopping, here are a few easy home-delivery options, along with bartenders you can hire to make your night easier.

Bartenders: Elixir Coterie

Alcohol Delivery: Lakeforest Wines

With a series of locations all over Gurgaon, Lakeforest Wines is a safe bet. Call your local Lakeforest to find out more.

Unfortunately if you’re throwing together an impromptu shindig, caterers can’t help you. Most require at least 24-hours notice for such a party. With that in mind, here are some last-minute food delivery options. Keep in mind most locations will close early on Diwali, and orders should be placed by the afternoon at the latest.

Biryani Blues

Get your fix of Hyderabadi biryani. Available at most locations across Gurgaon {you can check the website for more details}, with quick and easy home-delivery. Biryani Blues even offers veg and non-veg party meal options that serve up to ten people.

Price: INR 1,000 for two {approx.}

Al Zaitoon

Middle-eastern and Lebanese delights make for easy and enjoyable sharing plates to gather around while playing cards. Have tasty chicken rolls as well, in case you prefer individual orders. They only take orders till 2pm, so be sure to call early.

Tunday Kababi

Open on Diwali to offer you some melt-in-your-mouth mutton is Tunday kebabs, along with some curries, biryanis and other kebabs. It’s a hearty, hot meal for your celebration and is available for pick up or home delivery.

Ambarsari Chowk

From scrumptious mutton biryani to mouth-watering kadhai paneer, this place will make sure that your guests don’t leave without having a nice, heavy Diwali meal. Make sure you order their gulab jamun as a cherry on top of the amazing meal.


With a huge range of starters that include to surmai tikka fry and malai soya chaap, Kaiser is the place to order from when you want a filling plate of snacks. The amazing part is that they do late-night deliveries as well.

Unfortunately we can’t tell you where to rent any friends for the evening, and we seem to have misplaced the number for free friend home delivery.

Happy Diwali!
