“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” and the Sheila Raheja Institute of Hotel Management (SRIHM) in true fashion brought this line to life with their festive Christmas lunch - ‘La Fiesta de Navidad’ on the 22nd of December 2023.
The delicious and special Christmas lunch was organized by the S.Y. BSc. G&H Batches. Christmas is not just about the glimmering lights, the beautifully decorated Christmas tree, or the sweet aroma of Christmas delicacies pervading the air, it’s about the joy we share, the memories we make and the celebration of love and togetherness that this season brings.
La fiesta de Navidad translates to ‘the festival of Christmas’. The students of SYBSc. put their creative minds to work and made this event a reality in a month’s time. The delectable Christmas delicacies were served at the 6th floor lobby and the Hibiscus restaurant with a live bar accompanying it. The main inspiration behind the décor was to give the guests a feeling of a winter wonderland. In the ‘Advent Bar’, the entire bar counter was covered with a cotton to give the effect of snow. There were 3 live counters, 2 carving stations for the honey glazed leg of ham and the Christmas turkey as well as a live dessert counter for the Christmas pudding flambeed with brandy sauce. As for the entertainment part of the event a choir was organized by the SRIHM students. There was a photobooth too to create long lasting memories.
The event kickstarted the season of spreading warmth and joy and bringing in the Christmas spirit, days before Santa was ready to knock on all of our doors!
