Hey Bluming Fans! We are SO excited to be able to bring you some fresh content and give you a look at what we’ve been working on. If this is your first time seeing the new website, we hope you love it! We also wanted to feature how events have changed during the pandemic. Ryan threw a fabulous Mitzvah in spite of it all! Take a look below:

Ryan’s family hosted the perfect outdoor ceremony at Ray’s on the River for his close family and friends. The setup was a bit different; all the tables and chairs were spaced apart and families sat together. Face masks were required but, as you can see, they made it fun!

There were extra masks available, sanitizer at every table and lots of cleansing wipes to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Let’s Celebrate brought Ryan’s fishing theme to life with some awesome décor; and the river setting was just perfect, thanks to Ray’s.

Ryan did wonderfully during his ceremony and afterwards everyone enjoyed appetizers of small bites in individual containers and main courses served family style. Dessert was a gorgeous display of fruits, cheeses, and small cakes, and each table got their own spread.

After lunch, people departed only to reunite a few hours later at the reception, which was held at Ryan’s grandparents’ house.

They enjoyed pizza from Southern Crust Catering as well as appetizers and s’mores for dessert. Cookiebeccary made these adorable fishing themed cookies as well!

The party ended with full stomachs and full hearts; it was so wonderful to see how happy people were to be together again. And how proud they were of Ryan becoming a Bar Mitzvah. Here’s to more like this as we navigate the road back to “normal”!
