Having balloons all around like Bobbie in Company could be the way to kick off the decorations for your Tony party. Feel like a Broadway star on a night filled with Broadway stars by making the entrance to your party a stage door or by making your Broadway debut with this on-stage photo op.


Snacks

Make sure to have all the fixings ready for your party. You can never go wrong with your chips and salsa, but here are some fun dishes inspired by this year’s Tony Award nominees.
