Sweet 16 Ideas You Wish You Thought of Sooner!

One of the most memorable birthdays a girl can have is a Sweet 16! From lavish decorations to a dance floor filled with your closest friends, it’s truly the definition of birthday party goals! If your daughter has a Sweet 16 on the horizon, or you’re the birthday girl looking for a theme, then here are some out-of-the-box theme ideas for an incredible celebration:

Halloween Theme
Although this spooktacular holiday only arrives once a year, Halloween can be celebrated at any time of the year — especially if you’re a huge fan! If you’re looking to get the ball rolling, you can always visit your local costume shop (such as Rubie’s Costume Company Flagship Store of Westbury) for a surplus of incredible decorations and special effects to add to the venue on the big day! As for the dress code for the Sweet 16, you can have all of your guests arrive in costumes! No matter how you choose to celebrate with a Halloween theme, you and your guests will have a frightfully good time!

Roaring 20’s Theme
One of the most iconic moments in history was the roaring 20’s! From classic film stars to Model T Fords, the 20’s were a time when popular culture soared — and made a lasting impact on the world! If your daughter is a fan of The Great Gatsby or just the art deco style of this time period, then this will be the perfect theme to have! Starting with the decor, the bigger your table centerpieces are, the better — since the 20’s were a time of lavish, show-stopping decor! From plumes of luxurious feathers to strands of faux pearls, nothing is off limits! Now, when it comes to your guests, you can have them dress up as their favorite icons of the twenties, flappers, and even famous cartoon characters of the time! Let’s face it: the 20’s will never go out of style — especially when it comes to a party theme!

Music Award Show Theme
Is your daughter a huge music fan? Then a music award show theme will be the perfect fit! From the MTV VMA’s to The Grammys, the list is completely endless when it comes to iconic award shows that showcase the talents of musicians from today and yesterday! To start, you can give out invitations that are shaped like backstage passes that detail everything about the party. Then on the big night, you can have your guests show up wearing the invitations as an entry to the party. If you want to really go over-the-top, you can also have your guests dress up as their favorite musicians. From Britney Spears to Elvis, the possibilities are endless and fun! Think about how fun and memorable this will be!

Need transportation to the big party? Dynasty Limousine has a vehicle to meet your needs. We offer stretch limos and Cadillac Escalades as well as stylish, modern Party Buses. Your group will enjoy the convenience of traveling together and having the excitement begin when they leave the driveway. Our professional drivers will ensure your party will arrive at their destination safely and on time. For more information or to reserve a car, give us a call at 631-587-8500!

Why March is the Perfect Time to Visit the Hamptons

Do you need a little more fine dining, cozy stays, delicious wine and tranquility in your life? Lucky for you, you don’t have to travel far to obtain it. The Hamptons may be a popular summer spot for good reason — think plenty of sunshine and beaches — but there are also many things to do and enjoy during non-peak times.

With the spring season around the corner (or so we hope), here’s how you can take advantage of an off-season trip out to the east end:

Attend East End Restaurant Week.
Although this year's East End Restaurant Week isn't in March, it's still great to know about this incredible event before it happens! From April 8 through April 15, 2018, enjoy a three course prix fixe menu for $28.95 at participating restaurants as well as discounted stays (10-20% off) at participating lodging properties in honor of East End Restaurant Week! A great way to enjoy one of the most beautiful regions on the east coast, before peak season rolls in.

Taste wine at a local vineyard.
Channing Daughters (Bridgehampton) is open daily, year-round from 11am-5pm, offering tastings of at least six different wines each day; Duck Walk South (Water Mill) is also open seven days a week, the tasting bar closes at 4:30pm on weekdays and 5:30pm on weekends; and Wolffer Estate’s (Sagaponack), which is known to attract celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Beiber, is open daily, year-round!
Watch the sunset over the harbor.
Catch a beautiful sunset, complete with an outdoor terrace, wood burning fireplace and ceiling heat lamps to keep you cozy, all at Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor. The terrace is open daily until 10pm, serving up beer, wine and specialty cocktails that pair well with their Bar Bites Menu. 

Go ice skating at Southampton Ice Rink.

The only covered and refrigerated ice rink on the East End, the Southampton Ice Rink is open for public skating daily until Monday, April 2, 2018. So whether you’re the next Michelle Kwan or you spend more time on the ground than you do on your skates, enjoy an afternoon of fun complete with a stocked snack bar.

Whether you’re traveling out east from Long Island, New York City or are flying into JFK — let Dynasty Limousine handle your transportation needs. Spend your time en route relaxing and getting into vacation mode, we’ll worry about getting you there! Contact us today for more information and to view our availability: (631) 587-8500.

Non-traditional Bachelor/Bachelorette Celebration Spots

Let’s face it: a wild night on the town isn’t for everyone. If this sounds like the soon to be Mrs./Mr. of your group, skip the typical booze-fest and treat the bride-to-be/groom-to-be to party as one that really reflects their interests! Take a look at the below for some offbeat bachelorette/bachelor party ideas:

Fitness Enthusiast: A Wellness Retreat
Hotels across the country are offering packages that involve fun workouts, spa treatments, beach time, and healthy gourmet meals. For a closer to home option - look into one of the many 5k fun runs like the Color Run, Electric Run, etc. This will not only be the best way to celebrate before the big day, but you’ll also be maintaining your fitness routine, too! It’s a win-win situation!

Nature Loving: Glamping
Go camping, but with glamour (sorry, tents). Grab your friends and head off to a decked-out cabin in the mountains. Add in some bachelorette/bachelor party games, drinks, and a day trip to a nearby town and you’ve got yourself a luxe weekend escape. It’s the perfect way to enjoy some time away from home in the great outdoors — but also have some modern amenities, too!

Thrill-Seeking: Zip-lining and More!
From zip-lining, to sky diving, to every thrill in-between, think of this bachelorette/bachelor party as an opportunity to try something new! Not a fan of jumping out of a plane so close to your wedding day? Try something a bit more low-key — a trapeze class perhaps, at least they have nets. This is the perfect option for not only the thrill-seeking bride/groom, but also guests who are looking to have some fun outside of a traditional setting!

Offbeat: Music Festival
Drinking and dancing are common bachelorette/bachelor party pastimes, so why not take it up a notch and attend a music festival! With a variety of festivals to choose from this spring and summer, you’ll be able to see multiple performers, indulge in plenty of food and drinks, and be among a crowd ready to celebrate. Plus some include daily workshops (like yoga or inspirational speakers) and others hone in on the areas culture for further celebration (like NoLa’s Jazz and Heritage Festival)!

Whatever you decide, don’t forget to start the party off right by choosing Dynasty Limousine: Long Island’s Premiere Limousine Service, as your transportation for your special weekend. Dynasty Limousine has a beautiful selection that is promised to meet your every need for a great night out on the town or simply to and from the airport. Contact us today for availability!

Run: Now playing through February 10, 2018

With music by Sir Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, this classic show tells the tale of romance, heartbreak, and one woman’s determination to ultimately do what makes her happy. AIDA is a powerful show that tells the tale of Aida, a Nubian Princess who was stolen and brought to another land, and how she falls in love with a soldier named Radames — who has already won the affection of Amneris, an Egyptian Princess, who isn’t a fan of Aida. Which princess will win the heart of Radames? See this incredible production at The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre at CM Performing Arts Center to witness how this tale ends.

Romeo & Juliet
Run: Now playing through February 18, 2018

William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet is one of the most famous plays in the entire world — and is now being performed locally, thanks to the Cultural Arts Playhouse! Taking place in Verona, Italy, the play tells the tale of the star-crossed lovers Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, their forbidden romance, and how their passion ends in tragedy. If you’re a fan of the works of Shakespeare or have never seen this classic tale performed live, then this is the perfect opportunity to do so!

The Crucible
Run: February 10, 2018 through March 4, 2018

Looking to see one of the most timeless theatrical tales on a stage near you? If you’re a fan of the work by famed playwright Arthur Miller, then The Crucible is the play for you! Taking place in 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, the play gives an inside look of the Salem Witch Trials and how a whole town was turned upside down because of them. From the antagonist Abigail Williams to the famous John Proctor, you’ll meet a series of characters that will only thicken the plot of this dark, eerie tale. If you’re in the mood for a suspenseful, classic thriller than this production at Merrick Theatre and Center for the Arts will be the perfect fit for your theatrical plans!
