Keep a realistic food budget

Did you know that providing a custom cake can cost about $3 per person? Providing a full meal can run $10 to $20 per person, depending on the food. That’s why it’s important to establish a food budget. Estimating the type of meal and number of people attending your party can help keep your budget in line.

Escape Virtuality provides you multiple options to choose from according to your goals. Our select menu has something for every party from pizza, to finger foods and other delicacies. We can also provide you with your very own crepe station!

You can also arrange to have your own food brought in. If you’re looking for special orders or need to cater from one of New York City’s finest restaurants, we give you the option of doing that as well. This is your big day, and Escape Virtuality wants to make your birthday party one to remember for the ages!

Low-key fun without the fancy invitations

Planning a birthday party event in New York City doesn’t have to be a complicated, expensive affair. You don’t need to hunt down addresses and mail expensive card stock and photo-realistic invitations. If you’re looking for an affordable way to send invitations, Facebook and other social media platforms are the perfect places to start.

You can easily invite and track in real-time the number of people who RSVP and plan your budget around it. Not everyone has or uses their Facebook account, so consider using email or standard invites for those who are not reachable through social media. That way you invite the people you want while keeping your mailing list to a reasonable number.

Affordable decorations are a must

Planning for a child’s birthday party event can get expensive if they’re looking for a specific theme or custom decorations. Consider websites such as Pinterest to discover unique ideas that other parents have used for their parties. You might just find the perfect hand-crafted designs that allow you to decorate your child’s party in style.

You can also bargain hunt on the internet. Using Google, Amazon, and even eBay will help you find party supplies without the big retailer markups.

The DIY approach may not be for everyone, but it can help you plan a big event and parties in Manhattan without breaking your budget.

Don’t try to do everything

Planning a birthday party in NYC can be an overwhelming experience, but only if you let it become one. The best part about hosting a party at Escape Virtuality is that all the entertainment is included. You can book your party in one of our unique spaces, or just let your group discover our many VR games and adventures.

A memorable birthday party requires the perfect gift. What better way to treat yourself or your child than to throw them a birthday party at Escape Virtuality. We offer group rates and flexible hours. We can open early and stay late to accommodate your party.
