You can also include a few other stylish cocktails on your drink list, maybe even something pink, and be sure to serve them in proper, fancy glassware. Your choice of food will depend on your group of friends and whether you are hosting an evening party or an afternoon luncheon. You can opt for sophisticated appetizers such as crab cakes, caviar, and champagne glasses filled with shrimp cocktail.
Or, you can go with something more casual such as an array of New York City street foods like hot pretzels, crepes, pitas, and pizza.
The Sex and the City girls were always dining out, and if they couldn't be found at a local restaurant, they fell back on the next best thing — take out — Chinese in particular. So, make your food preparation easy by ordering-in your favorite Chinese cuisine.
And, while fancy drink glasses are a must, there is no need to bring out your Grandmother's delicate dishes. Eating out of take-out containers was perfectly acceptable for the Sex and the City girls, but don't forget the chopsticks. If you want something a little more glamorous, serve food on pink plates with stiletto patterned cocktail napkins.
Serve any additional snacks in martini glasses, arrange trays of elegant cupcakes adorned with tiny stilettos or faux diamond rings, and have a variety of fancy popcorn for guest to nibble on if you are showing the movies or replaying popular episodes. Sex and the City Party Games and Activities Buy or make a trivia game about the show, and test your friends knowledge of details, facts, or popular quotes from the most memorable episodes.
Have a fashion show. Have guests model their best Sex and the City styles and purchase a few fashion-forward items or accessories that can complement these New York City designs. Use these pieces - such as scarves, jewelry, and handbags - as draw or game prizes.
Give each other manicures and pedicures, or hire a professional make-up artist and hairstylist to beautify you and your friends for a night on the town.
We all have that piece of jewelry that we no longer wear, that belt that we bought on impulse but still sits in the back of our closet, or that handbag that just isn't our style. Well, why not have an accessory swap. It will be just like a shopping spree, only it won't cost a cent.
Sex and the City Party Favors Mix your gossip and girl talk with a few fun activities that will capture the true Sex and the City spirit. From the Academy Awards to movie premieres, the piece de resistance of every red carpet event is the goodie bag.
Send your guests home from your Sex and the City party with a few special mementos to commemorate the evening of glamor, fun, and friendship. Find shopping bags from high end New York City stores such as Berdorf's, Bendel's, or Saks, and use these as your goodie bags. Ebay usually has a great selection. If you are unable to acquire the originals, you could always purchase shopping bags of similar style and attach your own logo.
Fill the bags with a celebrity selection of jewelry, lip gloss, nail polish, and possibly even a gift certificate to a coffee shop, department store, or spa. If you are looking for something a little less complex and costly, give guests a manicure kit, Cosmo drink mix, shoe shaped bottle opener, or the soundtrack from the Sex and the City movies. A Sex and the City party is easy to plan, no matter what budget you are working with.
From an ultra glamorous cocktail party to a more casual evening of girl talk and Chinese take-out, your party is sure to be a success as long as you have good food, good drinks, and good friends.
