    Let's accept it, Covid is still playing spoiled sport, but that won't damped our spirits. It's just going to make us want to have a small, quiet do at home, or at a BFFs place. Here's a guide on how you can transform your simple house party to an extravagant affair, by adding in a couple of elements, and then voila, party like it is 2019!

    Once you've sorted the guest list, invitations have been sent out (try making some fun GIFs to get them excited), let's talk about the most essential aspect of a party, food! Rule of the thumb, most people are sloshed by the time it's dinner, so your focus should be on lip-smacking starters, chips, dips, et al. Kick off your evening with nachos + corn chip combos from Makino, fancy munchies from Prime Foods such as Sweet Potato BBQ Chips and Nutcracker, and this collection of Sauce & Dips from Aamra which contains Chilli Basil Pesto, Spicy Salsa, Chilli Peanut Dip, Chilli Ginger Dipping Sauce. If you think your guests are health-conscious, try these gluten-free snacks and Keto snacks you can order online. There's SO much more on LBB Shop.

    Make some easy-peasy but healthy finger food at home or check our ready to eat cooking options and whip things up in a jiffy! Psst, there are healthy and easy desserts on the list too. 

    P.S.: You might have guests who take dinner seriously. Have a dinner backup ready for them. How about these healthy pastas and noodles?

    You want peeps to talk about your party and take picture-perfect memories too? Get some luxury plates, y'all. Pretty and aesthetic ceramic/wooden ware is always the first choice. Be experimental, mix and match and show off your idea of a super party, your way. We love this Brown Sheesham Wood Round Serving Platter. This Traditional Jaipur Design Triangular Shaped Platter is small but apt for those bite-sized appetizers. Get this Round Chip & Dip Platter for your chip and dip. After all, your tempting food deserves to look pretty AF!

    The more attention given to the minutest of details, the more jazzier the party is. We know you know that celeb parties are wayyy more than alcohol and chakhnas. They are grand. And so is their cutlery. Spoons, forks, knives, dessert spoons, you have to make sure it's all perfect to the T. You can get this Heritage Cutlery Set, in the photograph. If you want to go for something casual and stylish, this serving spoon set is just fab. Throw in these autumn-themed forks and you're good to go!

    This one's the life of the party (for most of us)! Some like it on the rocks, some like a fancy-garnished cocktail, some stick to the ol' favourite G&T and then there are non-alcohol people too. Keep a good stock of alcohol, make some punches, line up the bar at home with beers, gin, whisky and wine. For the non-drinkers, keep some mocktails in hand or even better, some yum non-alcoholic ginger beer. The party can be more happening if you get this Limited Edition Party Pack of Cocktail Mixers & Tools from Jimmy's Cocktails and watch your guests channeling their inner bartender. Also, just in case there are people who surprise you with a request for a cup of good coffee amidst the madness, keep this Whisky Barrel Aged Coffee in handy. No one goes disappointed at your party. Also, don't forget to play a few boozy games for fun!

    Fancy Is The Word

    Fancy food, fancy plates, fancy cutlery and fancy cocktails deserve super fancy glasses. These Shimmy Brass Glasses are shiny, stylish and have the party vibe you need. Considering it's a luxurious party you're planning, there must be glasses for everyone and their varied drinks. Vodka? These shot glasses will sort you out. But if it's bee, you've got to get these Nordic horn beer glasses. But if you want to get a whole lot of glasses, standard for all drinks to make it easy, we tried these whiskey glasses for our Christmas party, and love them. Light but durable, the whole range from Good Homes is a good option!


    Up Your Decor Game

    This ain't no festival party with fam or college party with friends. When you're planning the best of it all, the decor has to be just right. No, we aren't asking you to spend thousands of rupees on furniture, just a couple of additions here and there. Throw in pretty cushion covers for the lounging areas, cover the windows with gorgeous curtains, get eye-catching table runners for laying all the food and booze, and yes, lights! Lights can go from mood bummers to mood lifters. While fairy lights look good for every occasion, try housing this handcrafted Pendant light for the big party.

    Check out this list for cosy and comfy cushion covers and if you're looking for lanterns instead (because they're more convenient and can be put up anywhere temporarily) check out this list.

    Make It Smell Like A Dream

    Candles & Fragrances

    The ambience counts, every bit of it. While you've got the tangible decor sorted, it is important you get the intangible things sorted too. Ideally, keep diffusers in your rooms. While you've got your lights in place, a couple of aromatic candles will make it all warmer and very welcoming. It's best to go with mild yet crowd-puller fragrances and stay away from very powerful hard-hitting scents. Cinnamon, Lavender, Rose, Jasmine, Mahogany, check this list and you're sure to be spoilt for choices. 

    Pro-Tip:

    Prepare playlists on Spotify, JioSaavn and Soundcloud beforehand to save you the hassle of song requests or wrong song playing at the wrong timing. Play some nice melodies, preferably retro or jazz. Once the party is lit, feel free to have desi upbeat Hindi and Punjabi songs to lighten up the mood. Check out the best Spotify playlists to tune in to. And don't forget, keep these hangover drink sachets in handy for the aftermath. Just in case, your party peeps decide to stay over the night, here's a brunch-at-home guide; thank us later.
