As soon as we start hanging out with friends and family again, I want every occasion to feel like a party. Fortunately, the newcomer to the entertainment scene, Party by Numbers, is ready to make this dream a reality by making the way we entertain effortlessly. How? By bringing everything you need – food, cocktails, flowers, and more – straight to your home on the day of the meeting in a modern, multi-level, organized cart!
The founders of the creative agency The Gathery, Nicky Balestrieri and Luigi Tadini, have teamed up with the talented catering duo behind Pinch Food Design, Bob Spiegel and TJ Girard, who happen to write our Taste Taste, to improve entertainment at home. The one-stop shop balances form and function in every element, allowing you to focus on your guests and relax. Just log on to the website, answer four questions and they will create the perfect party. The food, drinks, plates and cutlery, glasses, decorations and even ice cream are in the car. Hosts can choose from themes inspired by the founders’ trips to places like vibrant Condesa in Mexico City, the artistic enclave of Marfa, and sun-drenched Sorrento in Italy.
Caterers know what restaurants don’t have to do, and the three types of service we’ve developed for any Party by Numbers experience are designed to stay fresh all day with little to no reheating.

Your PxN cart comes with simple step-by-step instructions and an easy-to-follow style guide. The 13 simple steps correspond to the 13 compartments of the cart, and the culinary instructions are just as easy. The car then serves as a cocktail bar, and when the soiree is finished, everything is packed in it and PxN picks it up the next day. Best of all, maybe? Aside from being easy to clean, it’s also sustainable. No plastic covers, one-off decorations, or plastic cutlery are used. Designed for gatherings from eight to 96, as the party grows, so does the number of carts to accommodate anything from a small cocktail party to a gallery opening.
PxN is divided into four categories on their website: Set, Cuisine, Flair and The Gift. The set consists of glassware, linens, and cutlery, while the kitchen is the artful food and bottled cocktails. Flair is the flower arrangement, the centerpiece, mood lighting and decor. The gift tops everything with a custom scent and Spotify playlist that can be played on the included Bose speaker. It seems that they really thought of everything and included everything.
Party by Numbers has already launched bespoke carts in New York City. An expansion is planned for Westchester and Long Island. To learn more about PxN, visit partybynumbers.com.
