It’s no surprise that many kids opt for a sports themed Mitzvah because who doesn’t love sports, right? Micah’s sports themed Mitzvah reflected his love for not one specific sport, but many. He is a baseball, soccer, tennis and basketball player, and his party certainly reflected his ‘love of the game’.
Held at Sweetwater Brewery, guests entered the parking lot to be greeted by a huge Micah banner hanging from an outdoor balcony with Micah’s logo and the slogan “Game Time, It’s On!”
The Micah logo was everywhere; from silhouettes on vases, to hanging “M”s, to logos on the backs of the chairs, decals on the walls, and graphics on the TV screens.
The décor was simple yet made such an elegant statement: rustic wooden signs, candles, and gorgeously simple arrangements of succulents among the tables.
We’d like to thank Kim Quinn Designs, I Do Linens, Let’s Celebrate and Atlanta Event Décor for all of the fabulous work they did to make Micah’s event so memorable. We’d also like to give a shout out to Peachtree Tents and Events for the tables, linens and lounge furniture.
Getting back to the party, before the guests even entered the main event space, they enjoyed cocktail hour on a beautiful evening outside on the front patio of the brewery. Nick Edelstein and his band played country music while the guests enjoyed their cocktails, delicious appetizers of ahi tuna, pigs in a blanket, shots of gazpacho, and some good ole’ fashioned tailgate cornhole.
As the guests entered the main event space, they were greeted with dozens of Micah’s game jerseys, all hanging from the second story balcony, as well as a super cool chicken-wire fence (of sorts) with all kinds of action shots of Micah playing the sports he loves so much.
Once guests entered, they were immediately ready to party! Zest Catering was ready with a full service bar, and various food stations, some of which included a lettuce wrap station, a tailgate station and a taco station. The Zest staff even wore aprons with the “M” logo; it was everywhere!
Atlanta Fever cranked up the party right away and guests never left the dance floor. The room was dark, lit only with some red shine on the walls and Micah’s red logo, the guests loved it!
One of the coolest parts of this party was the Second Line, a traditional New Orleans dance. Apparently, the first performers in a parade are called the “first line” and a “second line” just consists of people following the parade and dancing to the beat of their own drummer, to put it simply. They often twirl parasols and hankerchiefs in the air too, and this is just what this crowd did! Songs like When the Saints Go Marching In, and the Mardi Gras Mambo blared. Everyone loved it. Something a little different is always fun!
While some of the younger guests took breaks from the action, Memories in a Moment was onsite to provide a fun photo outlet for all.
We’d also like to mention the great work done by photographer Vosamo, and videographer James Futch for capturing all of the wonderful moments throughout the evening.
As the party began to wind down, guests began to reach for desserts of cake and rice krispy treats, as well as passed macaroon and cupcakes.
As guests made their exit, they departed with “M” logo backpacks containing blue tooth speakers, a sno ball from the sno ball truck parked outside, and memories to last a lifetime! Aunt Tara and her team were thrilled to call this one a success!
