Lower level, synagogue community rooms are ROUGH to decorate- especially on shabbat when you can’t light candles or have nice room lighting. And they always have the worst chairs- I have no clue why. But considering I think this Bar Mitzvah luncheon turned out really nicely. Excuse the cell phone pictures, it was the best I could get, sadly.
My Bar Mtizvah boy, Alex, was very opinionated, he had certinan colors he liked and other’s he loathed. He even hand drew his logo for the cocktail napkins! Just my kinda kid! His parents wanted a luncheon that looked like a luncheon, nice but appropriate. She loved the balloons I did for another event (Noa’s Balloons) so we used them for inspiration. Plus we needed an excellent candy buffet!
Every detail was handmade- from the dot streamers to the table numbers…
For the kids centerpieces we did candy topiaries and hand cut confetti! With 3-foot balloons hung upside-down from the ceiling- its was so fun!
And the candy buffet was all hand picked color coded candies with a back drop specially fabricated for this event. Alex loves Brooklyn and he wanted an image of the Manhattan Bridge without any building and no view of NYC. Harder than you think! And because of shabbat, when you can not show a video montage we used the candy buffet to display loads of cute baby pictures- it was very sweet.
Thank you to Pride Catering for making it always perfect!
