Nisha JamVwal Hosts A Valentine Party For Ritu PandeThe Bombay ‘set’ are always alive to the idea of meeting, bonding and enjoying a wonderful evening , and this one had an uncharacteristic nip in the air. A thematic Valentine’s Day Evening I hosted for Creo's Ami Patel at their designer store Creo to celebrate their flowing romantic couture turned out to be more extravagant than I'd imagined. And that too mid-week!

The evening felt even more magical with music of the sixties wafting through, as friends came in right through the evening, up until eleven. 

There was a Valentine fragrance (if at all there's such a thing)  with the choice of red and pink Marzipan Heart Cakes by Harsha Kilachand, pink champagne in long flutes, red, pink and orange heart balloons floating everywhere, heart shaped hors d’oeuvres, scones, muffins, streamers and a festive mid-week feel, that acts like a shot in the arm when we’re all in work and routine mode!

As I entered the venue, I was riveted by an impressionistic flowing black and white dress that I couldn’t resist for one minute more; it was love at the first sight. So I changed into that dramatic  black and white impressionistic print dress, flowing like a train behind me- quite regal. I don’t adhere too much to a dress code, so flamboyant  flowing dresses work for me always and for most occasions, understatement was never a word I’d payed too much heed to !

Barbara and Hira Seghal had just flown in from London, and came to celebrate with us, to my delight.  Mona Narang kept to the Red Theme.

Neena Mehta, Arti,  Varsha Javeri were meeting  Radhika Agarwal after a gap, she'd  just come in from San Fransisco and had a mini reunion. Mridula Kadam and Arti Sarin came in straight from work, and were delighted at the idea of a mid-week theme evening. Friends traipsed in through the evening, enjoying the romantic spirit that set off Valentine’s week, and especially enjoyed the red theme for the evening. Sangeeta Mehra looked most political in her military khadi jacket and shirt – very impressive.
