Have a New York Party and you’ll be singing “New York, New York, what a wonderful town!”

This is a broad theme that can be used for adult party ideas or teen party ideas…even for a sweet sixteen party or sleepover!

New York Theme Party Invitations

New York City is full of famous images. Make use of these in your invitation! Write your invitations on the back of New York postcards.

New York Food

New York has some of the best restaurants in the world. But when you think of New York food, you also think of the great food you can easily get on the street. This food is easy to handle and serve, so it would be great at your party!

You could serve...

  • Giant Pretzels
  • New york style pizza slices

  • Party Entertainment - New York Style

  • Play Broadway Songs or Frank Sinatra
  • Have everyone come dressed as a Broadway Character or New Yorker (cab driver, Donald Trump, Carrie Bradshaw…)
  • If you have a big budget, get a famous New Yorker celebrity impersonator to mix and mingle with your guests (in character of course!) or hire some “street entertainers” – magicians, mimes, instrumentalists, artists, etc.

  • New York Party Decorations

    More than anything else, decorations will really help set the mood and theme for your party. Here are some easy ways to transform your party space:
