Visible crew/equipment: When Stanford and Carrie walk backstage with the models, check the reflection on the glass and you'll see: the boom mic operator, camera and, best of all, a group of technicians crouching on the floor, failing to hide and moving around when Carrie and Stanford walk around.

Continuity mistake: When Big arrives at the party Carrie is eating a snack, with a remaining one on her hand. Big sees her and she's eating another snack, which leaves her with zero food. Half a second later there's a wide shot and not only is she not chewing the previous bite, but 2 snacks have suddenly appeared on her hand.

Continuity mistake: Miranda picks food with the chopsticks, then exactly one second later the food is gone and she is talking. Too fast for her to take it to her mouth, chew it and swallow it, for the scene takes place in real time. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: Before dinner, Miranda holds the candles with her right hand. Then puts them in her left hand. A nanosecond later, from a different angle. She is leaving them on the table using her right hand. She couldn't have used her left hand for she is holding the napkins and they would've fallen down.

Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, Sam has Chinese food in her chopsticks and says "she's like a model." She takes the chopsticks to her mouth, then angle changes and she is picking food again, though this time less amount.
