Suggestions on how to really make it Authentic?
I am a NY’er all day – Fuggeddaboutit….
I am also buying NY Scratch off lottery tickets for our giveaways
My husband and I moved to Northern Virginia, but are ride or die NY’ers…
I have incorporated the NY Skyline in our invitatons and we plan on going back to visit and take a few pictures there to put on our website.
But, What else would u suggest to really make it OVER THE TOP.
The colors are Royal Blue and White, night time and a lil sparkle on the tables. We have even decided that we are going to get re-introduced into the reception hall to Jay Z and Alicia Keys song – Empire State of Mind.
I am also thinking about doing a sky scape of New York as our poster board displays
the seating charts. Each Table is named after a street in New York we are familiar with.

Give out black & white cookies as favors? We put them in our Out of Town bags and they were a big hit. 🙂
The Williamsburg Bridge was a big part of our theme, and my grandmother sketched the bridge for us to use on our STD’s, Invites, and Table numbers. We also used her sketch on our favors, that also doubled as seating assignments.

Have a skyline on the tiers of your cake! Ask if your baker has any designs in mind. You could also use Ny postcards for your table numbers and maybe the city snowglobe for your favors. If you want to go wayyy you could get all of your customs (napkins, matches etc) with the statue of liberty on it. You could also, for your grooms cake, have Yankee stadium or whichever sports team you guys are a fan of. I think for cocktail hour it would be cute to have mini hot dogs and hoagies! What do you think?

I think I really like the NY Skyline for the cake topper, but the cake has bling on it.. don’t want to make it NJ theme (gaudy) :0)
I might ask about hot dogs and pizza bites, white castle burgers.. ok i am getting a lil nuts with it now.
But His cake is a Yankees hat already.
I might do some Times Square Napkins and snow globes can be part of the Decor on the cake table.. Thanks
