Fly to your DREAMLAND

This New Year’s Eve, North Delhiites would travel to Swiss beaches, African jungles and to the sets of Bollywood. Thanks to the theme parties that would give them a taste of the world, right at home. Gone are the days when New Year’s Eve was a very personal affair, restricted to either a small get-together at home or a terrace bon-fire party with friends. The concept of theme parties is now catching up amongst the party freaks in North Delhi. The bigger, the better is the tagline for North Delhiites who are going all out to get the world home in their New Year parties. From Goan Beaches to the beaches of Switzerland, you name it and it is all there, right at your home. The beachside ambience is simply perfect for the New Year’s Eve, exclaims Sumit Sethi of Shalimar Bagh. Beachside Party was the theme of his last year’s New Year bash. "We had a beach created at home and the dress code was obviously beach wear. It was quite chilly outside and we got the entire venue covered. We made sure that even the temperature was perfect for those dressed up according to the dress code. It was sheer fun. The guests enjoyed sitting in boats and chilling out on the sands with palm trees all over," narrates Sumit. Well, for this year, Sumit’s guest will witness one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Eiffel Tower. Playing up with the theme of ’An evening in Paris’, Sumit has already aroused the curiosity of his guests.

To make people have the real-life experience, these parties are given 3-D effect. "There is no point in transforming the venue to a particular theme, if it doesn’t give you the real feel. We focus on giving add-on effects like mashals are put up all over in the Arabian theme, celestial bodies are created in the Space theme and so on," explains Director Eventz Delhi, Ranju, a theme party organiser. A lot of focus is given on the light effects as well. "Neon lights, UV lights, gobo lights, city lights and even the pillar candles are lit to suit the ambience," explains Ranju.

While last year’s hits include sets of Bollywood flick Om Shanti Om, this year too the look of 60s and 70s are in demand. Ashok Vihar’s Ekta Bajaj had OSO theme of her last year’s New Year bash. "All the guests were dressed up in outfits of 60s—bell bottoms, big white glares and huge hairdos. The jazzy retro theme set was created with a splendid display of colours and guitar as the main prop. The party simply rocked," recalls Ekta. This movie freak plans to have Bollywood as the theme for her this year’s party too. All the leading stars will come live—to her home, rocking in their Bollywood ishtyle. Does that give you an idea?
