We love doing Bar Mitzvah parties. We especially love doing these parties when the Bar Mitzvah is as cool and down to earth as Jake. Jake and his family wanted a great party with no theme- just something that looked great, had delicious food, and was a ton of fun!
The modern and sleek Annenberg Beach House was the backdrop for Jake's party. The weather cooperated perfectly and guests enjoyed a relaxing cocktail hour after an impressive and sentimental service at the family's Temple.
We drew inspiration from the beach, but kept it simple and clean with a palette of silver, gray and white.
Curly willow and a smattering of silver shells created unique centerpieces that filled the space and brought a little bit of the outside in, while subtle "Message in a Bottle" table numbers were a fun way to assign the tables.
Guests found their seats with these beach inspired "lounge chair" seating cards...
The food was incredible. The talented team at Feast Catering created a magnificent spread, that not only looked perfect, but had the guests raving!
The amazing duo of Cindy Gold and Claudia Wong from Gold Wong Photography captured the essence of the day & evening perfectly. Their pictures are nearly as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. What a dream team to work with!
We ended the night with a decadent sweets table. A combination of candy and bite sized desserts for all- everyone was so eager to sample it, that we had to hold back the crowd just to get a few pictures!
We loved working with this amazing family, and I think this Mitzvah Project display gives you a little hint about who they are. Jake felt passionately that he wanted to do something to help a dog rescue or shelter, but he is too young to be allowed to officially volunteer. That didn't stop him. Instead, he called the local shelter, found out what they were in need of, and organized his own fundraiser in a local park! This display is a portion of what he, his family and his friends raised for the shelter! Great work Jake!!
Congratulations to this lovely Family! We get all warm and fuzzy inside when we think about your beautiful event. There was so much love in the room that night, and we feel honored to have been a small part of it!
