But it wasn't Paltrow's first party of the night.
Earlier in the evening, the Oscar-winner threw a birthday bash for her son Moses, who turned two on Tuesday.
"It's so exciting," Paltrow gushed to PEOPLE at the event, held at New York City's Waldorf-Astoria hotel. "We had a little birthday party at 5 p.m. – a little dinner for all of his New York friends."
The locale for this milestone-marking event? "A Mexican restaurant," she said. "He loves guacamole."
But the rest of the birthday celebration will have to wait a bit. "His daddy is in London," Paltrow, 35, said of husband Chris Martin. "So we're going to do presents when we can all be together."
In the meantime, Paltrow – whose daughter Apple turns four next month – is left marveling at how much her little boy has grown.
"[He's] not so little anymore," she said. "He doesn't like a stroller anymore, he doesn't like a highchair. He likes his independence."
