For this special bar mitzvah celebration we wanted to take a slightly unorthodox route, with the birthday boy’s passion for poker driving the event’s flow and decor.
To create the beautiful entrance we covered the tent with luscious florals and candles, and upon entry guests were transported into a chic poker lounge like no other. Starting with birch tables, we created a light color palette, featuring tan and white with touches of elegant black. Natural colored fringe chargers and a variety of brown water goblets were augmented by black runners and napkins, and our custom menus that finished off the tablescape. The refreshment area of the tent featured a full watering hole for the grownups, as well as a special bar where a mixologist made festive mocktails for all the kids. Poker, blackjack and roulette tables framed the outskirt of the tent, and the epic prize table tickled the guests’ fancy, showcasing what potential winnings are available for different amounts of earned chips. The ceremony was conducted in a separate area of the yard by the beautiful pool, where we had the family's rabbi and close friend Zoom into the ceremony for a very special message to the audience.
As the sun went down, candles around the pool and bistro lights in the tent created a luminous starry night for everyone to enjoy.
