TikTok. Instagram. Facebook. Your teen is likely on all three- and has their finger on the pulse of social media. Naturally, when they’re planning a party, they’re going to want to share it with their followers. Whether your teen is a budding influencer or just likes posting for fun, here are some teen party ideas for a social media worthy event at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC.

Create a Theme

Don’t just throw an ordinary event - give it a theme! Whether it’s a color theme, a video game theme, a destination theme, or a decade theme, encourage your guests to dress up to match the feel of the party. This can create some very lively photo opportunities and be a lot of fun.

Give Props

A green wall with a catchphrase, a photo booth, or a photo staging area with a ring-light and fun props, are all a great way to let your guests take insta-worthy photos to share with friends. Bright decor and cool lighting effects are sure to make their social media, too, so feel free to get creative.

Fun Foods

Food in fun dishes or shapes make the perfect social media post. How about shot glasses of tomato soup with grilled cheese wedges, or vibrant sushi. What about an ice sculpture to help keep shrimp cold for shrimp cocktails. Trendy charcuterie boards with a variety of cheese, crackers, and fruits are as photo friendly as they are delicious. Finally, delicious desserts can pretty up any feed!

Celebrity Guests

Inviting a celebrity guest such as your teen’s favorite musician not only will keep your guests entertained, it will also create perfect photo opportunities for your guests to post and share the fun!

Get Techy

When all the fun is over, your teen will likely want to know that everyone had fun, and will want to see what all their friends are posting. This is why creating a hashtag for your party is a great way to see all the moments your teen may have missed.

Another fun idea is to create a filter for sites like Instagram and Snapchat. This can be shared in your guest’s stories, and is a fun way to commemorate your event!

You can even livestream your event for friends and family who couldn’t make it to your party!

Room With a View

The power of a great view not only offers breathtaking scenery for guests to admire, it also makes the perfect backdrop for photos. At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we have a beautiful interior as well as stunning views of the NYC skyline that are perfect for photo ops.
