There is so much you can do with a NYC Party Theme! Buildings, landmarks, parks, neighborhoods, bridges, colors, food, taxis….the list goes on and on. Which means the possibilities to express your creativity are endless!
ICONIC NEW YORK EVENT SPACES

Football season kicks off this week, making it the perfect time to share this creative event.

When it comes to planning an event, whether it be a Jewish wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party, it can be easy to overlook the small stuff. No one forgets that big centerpiece sitting in the middle of the table, but what about the rest of the space? Nothing dials down the décor like neglected areas. This is where you want to work smarter, not harder. You want something easy and plentiful. It doesn’t get any more plentiful (and affordable) than water. You’d be amazed by what you can create when you freeze the stuff. Ice décor can be that unexpected touch that gets your guests talking.

Your Kippah can be Kool! Yarmulkes, also known as kippot and skull caps, can be as much a part of your Jewish wedding or bat/bar mitzvah celebration as the decor, music, and other traditions. Your kippah design can reflect your personal style, match your color palette or theme, and can be a great way for the younger set to embrace the tradition if you get them involved in selecting kippot. There are even eco-friendly options and endless possibilities for personalization.
