Josh’s Bar Mitzvah celebration took his guests around the world in the span of one fun filled night! pic 9

Held at the Buckhead Club, Let’s Celebrate did an amazing job of bringing Josh’s worldly vision to life; from cool vintage postcards, to centerpieces of bright globes and flags from around the world.

The guests were greeted by a fabulous arrangement of photos of Josh in different locations around the world, and we’d like to thank Button it Up for their creativity on this display. Another huge thanks to Ross Cohen for capturing all of the memorable moments throughout the evening as well!

As guests arrived, they noshed on fun appetizers such as artichoke and goat cheese fritters, and smoked salmon canapé, while the kids got the party started in the party room with mini hot dogs and pizza.


Dinner consisted of a beautiful fresh salad, salmon, grilled asparagus and a PASTA STATION, among other items. Yum! We’re getting hungry again just thinking about it!

The kids were entertained by the always popular Button it Up green screen and by AIR ILLUSTRATIONS, where they all got that “fresh ink” that their parents always forbade. 😉

James Futch caught all the action on camera as he circled the room capturing memories to last a lifetime.

All of the kids left with a cool blanket, some candy and a trip around the world that didn’t cost their parents a dime!


Congratulations Josh, and thanks for taking us all on this fabulous journey around the world with you!


Dear Tara,

I can’t thank you enough for the amazing job that you did coordinating Josh’s bar mitzvah this weekend.  The planning and the event were flawless.  Your guidance through-out the whole process was invaluable.  You helped us choose an event venue that we NEVER would have found on our own.  The vendors that you work with are exceptional.   I felt like the event was always being handled by capable professionals that cared as much as I did about the details and the process.  You were there to keep me on track and to make sure I was doing the right things at the right time.

On the day and night of the party, I didn’t worry about a single thing and only focused on having fun and enjoying the moment.  You make things happen and you do them well.  All of my family and friends were blown away by the attention to detail.  From the decorations, to the invitations, to the placement of the tables you made sure everything was done right.  You and your staff watched over my kids to make sure that they were okay and having fun all evening.  The event was amazing and I wouldn’t use anyone else to make this happen.

Your reputation precedes you in the event planning industry in Atlanta.  This is for good reason. Your hard work and conscientiousness have made you the “go to planner”.   Everyone knows that Tara knows how to throw a great party.   I am so glad that I was directed to you several years ago  and that we hit it off immediately.

Thank you for everything and I am looking forward to working with you again on the next one in 2017!!!

Faye Cohen
