I’m never one to shrink to a challenge but I have to admit this Bar Mitzvah threw even me for a loop! Three parties, one location, one weekend and EVERYTHING needed to be loaded in before sundown on Friday. And before you get to the photos- I have to admit- they’re the best I could do with my phone since a photographer was not allowed in the synagogue, unfortunately.
This Bar Mitzvah boy loves one this the most! Baseball! He loves the Yankees the most, Phillies second, but then there is the Oriels, Blue Jays and the Red Skins- well he just loves all of them!
For the first party, Friday night, we focused on his #1 love- the Yankees! Since this was just a 75 person dinner we made custom yankee pin stripe table runners, with simple fresh grass centerpieces with rolled napkins and baseball bat wood chairs.
The Saturday luncheon Kiddush was the BIG party with more than 250 people! Each table was a different color and branded with our Bar Mitzvah boy’s favorite teams.
For the escort cards we used baseballs, of course! Easier said than done since they roll! But worth the effort- it was SO cute and people loved it!
Branches, balls, sand, flags, hats and bats! Bam! Baseball centerpieces!
For table numbers we used the official hats from the table’s theme team!
The food was expertly prepared and served by Pride Catering! (And if I thought 3 events in 2 days was hard for decor- try doing it with food for 600 meals! Oy!)
For the kids area, we needed to use the gym and keep it simple- Yankee blue and Phillies red with grass centerpieces and lots of baseballs (which were immediately grabbed and thrown through out the room!)
Once the sunset on Saturday night- the real fun began. Focusing on Yankee away colors- this party was all navy and grey! Custom made pennants from the ceiling and more grass and baseballs was all the decor needed with a great DJ in the room to whip the guests into a dancing frenzy!
And of course, servers with custom made logo aprons!
The guests could not believe the way the room was transformed from party to party! And I can brag that this was one memorable HOME RUN!
