Tips and Tricks for Party Planning in NY

Planning an event in the city of New York has its unique challenges, from finding the right venue (that isn’t booked) to picking a theme and making sure all the kids have a blast. Whether you’re a parent preparing a child’s birthday party or a professional party planner, here are some tips to help you navigate the unique challenges of the city that never sleeps.

  1. Start Planning well in Advance
    As we all know New York is a bustling city with a busy event calendar. Venues, entertainers, and party suppliers often get booked up 2 months in advance. To secure your preferred providers and choices, start your planning early. I recommend at least 6 weeks before your event date.
  2. Get the Right Venue
    New York offers a wonderful variety of venue options, from intimate rooftops with stunning city views to historic landmarks and modern event spaces. Consider factors such as the number of guests, the theme, and your budget when selecting your venue. Keep in mind that transportation and parking logistics can also be challenging, so choose a location that’s convenient for your guests and age appropriate.
  3. Embrace our City’s Diversity
    One of my favourite things about party planning in New York is our cultural diversity. It is easy to embrace this by incorporating the variety of cuisines, music, and entertainment options into your event that you can find in NY.
  4. Navigating the Weather
    Any seasoned party planner will tell you that New York experiences a range of unpredictable weather conditions throughout the year. If you are planning an outdoor event, especially in the unpredictable months, have a contingency plan in place. Consider renting tents or marquees and provide heaters in the winter. *Most NY based suppliers and venues (Yombu included) are familiar with the rain plan and will have terms in place in case of cancelations, but we recommend checking this with them before booking.

Thats if from us. I hope that planning your next Birthday party in NY is a breeze. If you get stuck and need assistance or just want to chat, get in touch with us we would love to be a party of your special day.
