We had fun checking out the inaugural Desi Diva event, held at Toronto’s Palais Royale. We felt pampered the moment we walked through the doors. Champagne was poured by lovely ladies from an archway above the main reception room. Now this is a VIP treatment your guests will remember. We chilled in Distinct Occasion’s lovely tent, sampled the culinary delights including lamp chops, lentil soup and lobster bisque, and checked out the magic being worked on in the beauty room. At the end of the festivities, each guest got a swag bag full of goodies when we left. A pretty good deal at $5/person.
Check out highlights below.

Our champagne was a performance in itself.
Inside of the main hall was decorated in bright hues.
Tiramisu shooter. Yum.
Chocolate truffles on a stick. No more messy chocolate-stained fingers.
A walking table gets food to your guests where they are. It reminds me of Beauty & The Beast (you know, magical dancing teacups and all).
Lobster bisque. It’s like they knew all my favourite foods 🙂
