Tips for Picking a Venue
As fun as it can be to celebrate a Sweet 16, the additional emphasis placed on this day can be the root of stress or social pressure. Begin your hunt for the perfect venue by considering the three key factors: atmosphere, size, and food.
Think of Atmosphere
As you look for a venue, consider the tone of the event you’re hosting. Chances are, your teen isn’t anticipating an overly formal, stuffy environment. This isn’t a business meeting; it’s a party!
The ideal venue for your Sweet 16 should have the right balance of elegance and laid-back relaxation. Though this party is intended to celebrate a young person’s first steps into adulthood, the venue should be a fun-filled reminder that they are still a child, if only for a little longer.
When touring locations, keep an eye out for clean, modern designs that speak to both sides of this time in a young person’s life. Look for cozy, open spaces where your teen will have no problem entertaining both friends and family.
Consider Crowd Size
Much of your party, from the general tone to the energy level, comes down to one key factor: crowd size. A small party can be just as memorable as a huge one, but to make the most of every moment, you must select an venue tailored for the number of people you expect to attend.
City Roots Catering and Events supplies a variety of venues all over the New York area, guaranteeing that you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect fit for your Sweet 16. Select from among:

Keep Your Menu in Mind
Possibly the most difficult part of planning an event boils down to the menu. The bigger the party, the more difficult it can be to balance the various meal preferences, personal tastes, and dietary restrictions of every guest. To keep your Sweet 16 running smoothly, invest in a caterer who has something to offer every party guest.
Each item on a City Roots Catering and Events menu is constructed from completely fresh vegan ingredients. Our creative meals are inspired by global flavors and prepared by world-class chefs, offering big flavor in every bite. The adventurous among your guests will appreciate the opportunity to sample dishes from all over the globe, while the more reserved can find comfort in healthy, vegan takes on old classics.
City Roots Catering and Events doesn’t come with the “rabbit food” of vegan stereotypes; we prepare bold, creative dishes every palette will love! No matter who attends your party, they’ll find something to adore on their plate.
In taking the leap on this event, you’re doing more than just selecting a location; you’re deciding with whom to trust a party that many teenagers consider one of the most momentous occasions of their young lives.
