They sent me rocks and travel luggage tags for my wandering feet with the invite. They sent me a diary. I was charmed by the little details, like the pair of rocks with words “life” and “love” on them, and wanted to meet the people who had made such a thoughtful gesture. So, one fine afternoon saw me walking over to meet the duo: Priti Agarwalla and Sunaina Agarwal, who were the faces behind the brand Desi Lantern, an event décor brand.

Now, let me be honest: I am not completely sure about every nuance of the Desi Lantern brand, but primarily, the brand is all about furniture rental, especially for events. Desi Lantern can provide you with a customized, one-of-a-kind décor within a short time to suit your event’s need in Kolkata. For example, the event we were attending (a fun Blogger’s meet-and-greet) had a travel theme, to be more precise, it was meant for those with a severe case of wanderlust.

So, you enter and are asked travel-themed questions, based on which, you get to sit at the spot assigned for you. I got Italy, and happily sped off upstairs, where I was faced with a giant balloon shaped photo booth, a fun start to a rather hilarious evening.

We were treated with good wine, great food with a global theme, and even had someone who made us dance to his tune (I bowed out pretty soon, though!). I was, however, fascinated by the tiny detailing in the table setup.

The theme was religiously followed right down to the tiny notes beside everything we ate, and I definitely want to explore this brand if I am throwing a themed (or not) event which would make the attendees gasp with glee.

I spoke to Priti and Sunaina and they claimed that every item of décor were handpicked and pieced together to maintain a theme. Some parts were sourced from around, but a majority of it was found abroad and brought in, and so, are unique items rarely found otherwise. I definitely had a better idea about event decorations after the event, and also, brushed up my geography!
