Amrita Rao lists five party must-haves for the season
A room with a (rainy) view
Monsoon venues need to be thoughtfully selected... a good view of the rain coupled with the breeze minus the discomforts of dampening your spirits is most essential!
Let the rhythm get you
Mild music playing in the backdrop always helps to pep up the energy and helps you to set the kind of mood that you want to give your party. Bollywood music has serenaded monsoon many a times anyway!
Kuch spicy ho jaye
Amazing starters tell you that rest of the evening is only going to get better. Any snack with a tangy spicy element compliments this season. Chaat, bhel, corn puffs and cheese stuffed mushrooms are something I would like to see on the menu!
The best parties with the most perfect ambience can go kaput if you don’t have interesting company.
Return gifts leave a good taste in the mouth and can score above the sweet dish in many cases! How about a fancy umbrella? Because you never know, they might just need it! (laughs)
