Towering bright skyscrapers, loud traffic and a city buzzing with activity—New York is a happening place like no other, and the perfect choice for a lively city theme party. Linzi of Linzi Events put together an exciting and trendy New York theme party for Dylan’s Bar Mitzvah. Join us as we head there to enjoy the sights of this grand event.
The illuminated Brooklyn bridge at sunset, and the scintillating lights of the tall buildings behind it form the amazing backdrop of the party. It instantly transports us to the city scene, with dim party lighting and carefully planned decorations perfectly recreating the city scene.
Guests sit across each other on long tables, and the arrangement is simply spellbinding with spectacular tall centerpieces. Sleek black, crystal rectangle containers house stunning clusters of tall yellow calla lilies. White flower pots with green turf and shiny red apples add dashes of color to the stylish décor. Neatly folded golden-yellow napkins hold menu cards, and tiny tea lights in glass votives add a soft glow to the tables.
I love this brilliant idea of using sheets of the New York times for the table cover. Not only does this tie to the theme, it is an unexpected and unusual choice that works brilliantly. The custom-created menu cards popped into the folds of yellow table napkins, have symbols inspired by the New York metro signage. Each place setting also includes an “I love New York” badge for the guests to take with them.
Blue light throws shadows all over the room, creating a spell-binding effect. Here, we can see one of the many large boards with graffiti and city pictures in the party theme.
Black mugs with the trademark “I love New York” print, are party favors for the guests. These also double up as accessories for the tables.
Another part of the party hall is made comfortable with lounge-style seating. Yellow light bounces of two white L-shaped sectional sofas, casting soft shadows and offering respite to the guests when they want to relax for some time. Behind the couch are small garden tables with checkerboard table cloth and beach umbrellas.
Miniature models of the iconic yellow and black New York city taxis, are party favors at the event. The cabs are perfect replicas of the original, with every small detail being perfect. It is attached to a black base with street signs in red and white at every turn. Also notice the typical roof light sign replaced by a colorful “Dylan” signboard. Wasn’t that a great way to customize these party favors!
Cool Party Favors carries some great diecast New York taxi cabs here.
I hope you enjoyed touring this party with us. Don’t you think Linzi did a great job in creating a party that perfectly replicated the city that never sleeps—New York! Great job Linzi!
