Carnivals aren't the only place you can lick a snow cone or sink your teeth into a cloud of cotton candy. Thanks to Carnival Parties, event hosts can rent these concessions and other classic amenities for any occasion. The company's carnival games, for example, range from a beanbag toss to Tip-A-Troll, and its team of performers includes magicians and clowns. Meanwhile, a rainbow-hued inflatable bounce castle ensconces tots in a cushy space where they can safely leap and play.

Part of Studio Square NYC's massive event and entertainment complex, The Garden @ Studio Square transports the traditions of an open-air German beer garden to modern-day New York. The 30,000-square-foot beer garden's open-air courtyard––which features imported cobblestones, thick vines, and trees––entertains patrons perched at handcrafted communal picnic tables with projections on a 160-square-foot screen. Additionally, a covered patio at the edge of the courtyard keeps guests in good spirits with its six bar stations and food counter.
Unlike other beer gardens, Studio Square offers guests a place for merrymaking that is protected from harsh elements and the occasional locust plague. Its two large indoor areas bring all of the fun of the outdoors inside with a large indoor grill and multiple bars. Both inside and out, bartenders pump beer from the custom-built taps designed to deliver all 24 available beers at the ideal temperature. Along with the craft brews, more than 30 flat-screen televisions grant multiple views of football, baseball, and soccer games.
MOPAC seamlessly combines socializing and culinary crafting in classes and singles events, where appetite adventurers band together for international eats and cultural creativity. In the classes, eight to 20 culinary-curious students gather with chefs in convivial culture-themed classes that begin with a quick and healthy recipe, easily reproducible in home kitchens, with just five to 15 minutes of prep time. Sprightly sessions often include learning native phrases and culminate in cultural activities or dance instruction, so participants can partner salsa with salsa or do the funky chicken while enjoying eats from the United States of Chicken. The schedule is stocked several evenings a week with 90-minute classes, and MOPAC recommends that students arrive in comfortable clothes, with open minds and their dancing feet on, as unattached dancing feet may be disposed of.
For more than three decades, Barry Silverman and the bloom arrangers at PC Floral Designs have been orchestrating custom arrangements and baskets for special occasions. They emphasize individual customer satisfaction with their PC "personal touch" approach, approaching each pot, vase, and basket like it’s the first one they’d ever laid eyes on. They carefully help clients select the proper petals for their recipient, grouping cymbidium orchids for a tropical plant–lover or arrange a token of appreciation to send to compassionate bosses, well-behaved relatives, and other fictional characters. They also specialize in surrounding brides with favorite blooms, including pew arrangements and elegant huppahs.
Since 2001, RA Photo Booth has enlivened birthday parties, weddings, and dances with DJs, photo booths, and LED visual effects. Inside mobile photo booths, high-resolution digital cameras capture snapshots, which partygoers can use to decorate their lapels or foreheads with a little scotch tape. Alternatively, their DJs can decorate party soundscapes as LED light fixtures embellish floors and walls with a virtually unlimited number of customizable patterns, monograms and messages.
In an effort to make events easy for hosts, RA will set up all the necessary equipment before parties start. In addition, the LED lights they use consume less energy than traditional light bulbs and can often run off a single outlet, which gives guests more room on the dance floor to imitate inchworms.
