Planning a Party, New York-Style
NYC is ridden with parties galore. What makes yours special?
An event that inspires will leave the greatest mark
The best events are the ones that leave you with something to think about. New York is ridden with parties in every corner. What makes yours special? Whether it’s a cool theme or a unique exhibition, your events should at least encourage people to strive for something, whether it’s for a cause or simply to have a darn-good and unforgettable night. Your event should introduce something new, if not add a fresh twist to something that’s been tickling the crowd’s fancy for quite some time. If you’re set on a specific objective, for instance, a launch of a new cosmetic line, your outward goal is to get the brand known, while your underlying agenda involves making the women feel better about themselves when they leave the place. You want people to write you thank you notes after your party. You want people to say “I learned something last night”.
Stay away from the weekends
Party planners all over Manhattan know that weekends are a danger zone. The best events take place on a week night from a Tuesday to a Thursday. Now, if you are planning a weekend event like a birthday party or a wedding party, obviously that is a different story. The earlier in the week it happens, the more business-related the event. The more creative and fun-related parties usually happen toward the end of the week.
