Your apartment The secret to having a party in your home is to keep the party short, simple, structured, active and small.

Your favorite NYC Park or Playground NYC offers many picturesque parks. From Central Park, Riverside Park, to Prospect Park, Carl Schurz, etc. Click here to find parks in your neighborhood

Your child’s school Many elementary schools will let you have a short class party. No need to worry about invitations, renting space, etc. PLUS your child gets to celebrate with the entire class! Ask for permission and start planning at least 6 weeks in advance. Many schools are also willing to rent the cafeteria, gymnasium, etc.

Your Community Center, YMCA, or Place of Worship may have spaces to have a party. Try booking at least 6 weeks in advance. On the day of the party, arrive early to set-up, arrange the room, and hang decorations (remember to use party supplies that are “wall-friendly” like sticky-tack).
