Hanukkah and Bowling!
Posted Monday, February 27th, 2012
On a Wednesday morning during Hanukkah, family and friends gathered to celebrate the Bar Mitzvah boy’s accomplishments and the joys of life at Congregation B’nai Torah!
The caterer, Avenue K created a fire pit and a latke station for the brunch after the morning services. Guacamole, made to order, was just one of the delicious food offerings.
Hanukkah gelt, freshly made donuts, and dreidels accompanied by directions on how to play, garnished the tables. Balloonacy did the impressive balloon displays. The color scheme of lime green, electric blue and black made the room POP!
The Bar Mitzvah boy and his family and guests were entertained by singers from New York’s Shalom Orchestra, and the animated DJ from Hitz Entertainment.
Party favors included photos with a green screen by Peachtree Pictures, Over the Top Creations airbrushing hats, and caricature drawings by the artist, Mark Mandel.
The Bar Mitzvah ceremony and celebrations were immortalized with photography by Kimberly Maz.
With the Bar Mitzvah boy known to be a whiz, rubik cubes held the place cards welcoming guests to the personalized, fun, and celebratory festivities!
On the place card table, a gigantic Bar Mitzvah boy photo book offered guests an opportunity to share their sentiments as they signed in. In addition, a very large candy menorah decorated the back of the table, announcing that a “sweet” time was to be had by all!
Get Up Cup provided the delicious coffee cart offerings! If guests hadn’t woken up during the Bar Mitzvah boy’s proficient participation in services, the coffee deliciously opened everyone’s eyes!
To declare that this Bar Mitzvah festive party was creative, is an understatement!
Check out the above photo! The Bar Mitzvah boy’s mom invented table names that were so amusing and comedic. Guests sat at “1st Time In Shul,” “Never Met the Bar Mitzvah Boy,” “We Like One Spouse Better Than the Other,””Gave a Re-Gift,” and “We Are Here For the Food” named tables. Table numbers and their “original” names were placed in fresh donuts on each table.
Transportation shuttles were provided by Metro Tour Shuttle.
Alcoholic offerings for the adult guests came from The Wine Store.
With 250 people gathered at services and the brunch, the Bar Mitzvah boy’s family created a more intimate event for the evening’s party. About 100 family members and friends from out of town were invited to the Emory Conference Center for more celebrating. With a chance to bowl, a venue with a cool, modern vibe, and yummy food offerings for the partying guests, a memorable Bar Mitzvah celebration was enjoyed by all. A bowling pin was signed by the family for the Bar Mitzvah boy as a tangible reminder of the amazing day’s celebrations and his achievements.
Multiple pizza offerings and make-your-own salad satisfied the bowling party participants’ appetites!
