We were fortunate to have the opportunity to create a Bat Mitzvah in a most unique venue. Our Guest of Honor (GOH) didn’t want the typical party in a typical venue, so we ventured over to The Village at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach. Strike 10 Bowling & Sports Lounge was a perfect space to plan a memorable night for our Mitzvah family and their guests.

Upon entry, the young guests entered the arcade area where they had plenty of tokens to play the abundance of games. While the cocktail hour offered plenty of food and drinks for everyone, it also offered additional amenities such as billiards and over 30 large HD TVs for the adults to enjoy in a plush lounge area.

Once cocktail hour was over, Dale the Host opened the dance floor. The facility’s state-of-the-art sound system and lighting complemented our “MC Kingpin” who had everyone on their feet. From the grand entrance to the hora, no ordinary formalities were missed during this not so ordinary mitzvah.

Everyone loves traditional bowling alley treats, but Strike 10 really knew how to put a spin on the classic cuisine. They certainly upped their game with signature staples such as pizza to international buffet stations and more; The only turkeys here were made by the guests!

Later in the evening, the ropes were lifted, and the lanes were open and ready for bowling. Plenty of SWAG was given out while the teens showed off their fancy skills. Guests big and small also scored big with a candy bar, s’mores station, and a special cookie display.

With no time to spare, Toni Jade Photography was on-site to capture every frame.

A perfect game always makes a STYLED EVENT.

We knew right away that our Guest of Honor (GOH) didn’t want a traditional evening Bar Mitzvah party with lots of dancing, over-the-top décor, performers, etc. His favorite part of attending mitzvahs is the cocktail hour when a variety of games are usually available. When we told him that we could create his entire party around his love of video games, he no doubt was GAME!

So, it was time to let the games begin… We started with our GOH’s list of must-haves and were sure to reserve all of them way in advance from Cocktail Hour Entertainment before doing anything else. We then made a game plan to design a space that would coordinate nicely with our arcade-filled ballroom at Congregation Kol Tikvah.

Tali Table Designs created sophisticated custom tables and centerpieces with neon touches which scored plenty of points during this luncheon celebration. Pure Energy Entertainment never disappoints; Emcee Matt and his crew always come to every event with their game faces on and ready to play! Another star player was VIP Caterers. They served up the perfect brunch menu for gamers big and small.

Marjy & Andy Photography and JC Video Productions know it’s all fun and games but didn’t miss a shot to capture all the winning moments.

Mazel Tov again to Lee and his family!

Keeping your head in the game always make a STYLED EVENT.

We had an ABSOLUTE connection when meeting this client! It was instantaneous since our style and taste were so similar. We discussed important elements and there was no hesitation when determining that this Bat Mitzvah was going to be ultra-feminine and elegant with some old Hollywood glam.

We began the planning process with a black and white color palette. Later on, we decided to include a pop of purple especially after our Guest of Honor (GOH) chose her invitation which we had also created.

Next on our list was décor. We had plenty of ideas and went to Galaxy Productions to discuss them. Our perfect vision was to have classic black art deco style vases topped with white roses to make a simple, yet stylish statement. Clearly, we wanted modern white tables to place them upon. Plus, the plush white velvet chairs were an ABSOLUTE favorite find!

We further went on to make custom logo chargers to add a personalized touch to each place setting. The teen area also needed a giant splash of black and white, so a custom graphic wall was designed creating an ABSOLUTELY perfect backdrop next to the dance floor.

Our unique venue was EMKO Palm Beach. The popular artsy restaurant was undergoing an ABSOLUTELY extreme renovation and fortunately, they completed it just in time for our event. The evening began with a cocktail hour in the courtyard on the most beautiful South Florida night. As guests mingled and enjoyed the large garden sculptures, they were greeted by our living wall where a hand-painted performer surprised and took photos with everyone. Before moving into the party, a stilt-walker cut adult guests their place cards from ribbons above for a different and fun effect.

Galaxy Entertainment had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Lou and Sal were high-energy, and the crowd ABSOLUTELY loved it! A surprise appearance by LED performers also had everyone wanting more. And more, there was ABSOLUTELY more! A candy wall was unveiled displaying an abundance of favorites. And if that wasn’t enough, an ABSOLUTELY beautiful cake made by Nina’s Fresh Bakery was served alongside other sweet creations.

Who better to capture all the magical moments than Mavila Photography and JC Video Productions. Both teams always work ABSOLUTELY amazing together and are sure not to miss a thing. Boca Photo Xperience was also on hand to capture live moments with their roaming camera and fun portraits with their “Photomingle” booth. Thank goodness Freddy the Artist was airbrushing great bags for guests big and small to carry all their swag.

Chic and sophisticated mitzvahs are right up our “ALI”, and always make a STYLED EVENT.

This was the first time we collaborated with another industry professional to bring an event to life. Our Guest of Honor’s (GOH) mom’s very dear friend is an event planner in New York and of course, this Jersey girl wanted her input along with ours. So, we combined notes with Beth Fink Event Planning, made the proper recommendations and executed ZEE perfect celebration.

The theme came together by using the GOH’s initials and then deciding how to create a Manhattan nightclub vibe. We immediately went to Galaxy Productions, Tali Table Designs, and Just Bars to project our vision. As always, all of them are ZEE best team to work with.

From the massive modern and sleek silver wave bar with the DJ built into the back bar to the custom silver crocodile tables and unique centerpieces set with mini calla lilies and a pop of electric green, the ambiance was ultimate for a non-stop party. Ricky City from Rock with U Entertainment flew straight in from the Big Apple to give the crowd a true NYC Club experience.

ZEE dance floor was packed all night while Palm Caterers of Weston served up ZEE most incredible menu of favorites. Just when one thought the club-like atmosphere was in full swing, the LED drummer made an entrance with his spectacular performance.

Victoria from Toni Jade Photography and the Timeline Video Productions’ crew were all over ZEE ballroom capturing every moment.

Guests big and small enjoyed lashes and tattoos, a green screen photo booth, plenty of DJ giveaways, a candy bar, and so much dessert. But in true Jersey style, one should only have more food, so La Nostra pizza truck was ready to serve up slices as guests departed.

Watching everyone have ZEE best time always makes a STYLED EVENT.

Mazel Tov again to Zach and his family!

Two brothers with one love for baseball made planning this event a great start at home plate. However, the athletic duo along with their number one fan (Mom), didn’t want a traditional rendition of the game. It needed to be sleek and modern with slight touches of the classic sport. We immediately knew who we would recruit to be on our all-star team.

First up to bat would be Galaxy Productions, we know they never allow any curve balls. So, we began the design plan and decided on not just one pop of color but two. Orange and red would be our choices for this grand slam event. We wanted the teen area to replicate a dugout and feature giant video mapping of famous baseball moments such as the Red Sox winning the World Series. The rest of the playing field would need a wrapped dance floor, custom tables, great seating, an oversized bar, and amazing centerpieces.

Our other key players would be Tali Table Designs followed by Just Bars. The hand-made tables to look like a leather ball complete with red stitching were supreme as were the laser cut acrylic logo base-shaped placemats in coordinating colors. Our massive grass bar was also quite the hit with this crowd.

More VIP players on our infield team consisted of Artisan Foods Catering, Rock With U Entertainment, Lux Images, and Jason Chandler Video Productions. Emcee Chris kept the dance floor packed all night while the Artisan team scored a home run with their incredible menu. Nothing kept our photographers and videographer from capturing each play-by-play moment either.

We know that the players in the outfield are just as important, so we had Capture Pod Photo Booth and Freddy the Artist entertain our big and small fans alike. The baseball concession stand at the end of the evening was stocked with iconic ballpark treats including the original Cracker Jack.

We knocked this one out of the park because having an all-star team and mitzvah family always make a STYLED EVENT.

It’s not too often we get to create a graduation party, so we were extremely enthusiastic to have the honor of creating a special one for twin graduates of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Just as any other event, we wanted to hear the girls’ thoughts and visit the space.

The theme was going to be their college selections which were the University of Arizona and the University of Wisconsin. Fortunately for us, the color palette worked together with red being our dominant hue. We instantly knew that custom tables were a necessity, so we went to Tali Table Designs with our grand plan and collaborated to make this a backyard party like no other.

The teen space included lounge seating groups with custom pillows, giant bean bag chairs, a game of corn hole, and a custom designed imitation pong game (used with lemonade and iced tea) to replicate dorm life. The custom adult bar had the Guests of Honor’s (GOH) logo design as the back bar, while the high tops had alternating school logos.

Chez Gourmet Catering received an A+ for presenting a delicious menu and CAKED by Cynthia White also made the grade with her two incredible custom designed and delectable cakes. DJ Juan was a big man on campus as he played the duo’s favorite tunes. Another popular extracurricular activity was the photo booth. Guests of all ages loved sharing smiles and memories.

Staying on course always makes a STYLED EVENT.

Congratulations to Sydney, Hailey, and their family!

…and an extraordinary night it was for our last Bar Mitzvah of the 2017-2018 season! Although this party was at the impressive Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in downtown Miami, our Guest of Honor (GOH) didn’t want his event to be themed as such. He wanted a cool, hip, club vibe among the incredible aquariums the venue is known for.

As always, we like to listen to our clients and give them what they want. So, after a few site visits we took our vision to Galaxy Productions and together we curated a look and a feel to make our teen happy.

We wanted the room design to complement the interactive LED dance floor which was quite a focal point. Therefore, we decided to have giant LED structures built around some of our guest tables which housed centerpieces of glass cylinders in a variety of heights with candles and orchids. Other tables had large custom built acrylic arches with crystal fixtures suspended and finished with blue roses and more candlelight at the base.

Starr Catering exhibited an abundance of food stations fit for any craving, while Matt and his team from Pure Energy Entertainment dived right in and packed the dance floor. Guests of all sizes couldn’t get enough of the great playlist, LED dancer, mirrored girls, the pop socket photo booth, and the dessert selection which included a candy bar that could stock a movie theatre. Every surprise element made the evening quite the masterpiece.

Once again, Jonathan of Mavila Photography was front and center to capture and archive every minute.

Making and preserving memories always makes a STYLED EVENT.

Mazel Tov again to Andrew and his family!

We always love all things pretty in pink, but we also love when we get a Bat Mitzvah teen who has sophisticated taste. Our Guest of Honor (GOH) wanted a gold and white color palette, so we were super excited to design and create an event around her request.

We knew our golden ticket would be to get Tali Table Designs to create custom tables. These beauties were designed with gold crocodile fabric and gold mirror to truly reflect our GOH’s style. Custom built gold-mirrored troughs filled with an overabundance of gold roses surrounded with plenty of glowing candlelight sat upon these magnificent creations.

Place settings were accented with a laser cut-out of our GOH’s name and complemented with gold utensils and fabulous French-style Louis chairs. The GOH namesake bar was also a WOW! factor as guests commented on it all night.

Galaxy Productions added a teen lounge with gold accents and they suspended metallic gold curtains above the dance floor which pulled the space together in the Temple Dor Dorim ballroom. They also provided the video mapping in great gold and bold graphics.

Palm Caterers of Weston never disappoints with their gold standard menu and service. From their signature cocktail hour and main course to dessert and personal to-go pizzas nothing was left out. Although no one was leaving hungry, LiquidXCream served up some fun nitrogen popcorn and the Best French Fries food truck greeted guests as they departed with some of the best gourmet french fries.

Rock with U Entertainment brought home the gold as they brought down the house with their insane playlist and dance crew, and Jonathan of Mavila Photography captured every moment.

Going for gold always makes a STYLED EVENT.

The celebration continued for this Guest of Honor (GOH). After an amazing Shabbat dinner at The Farmer’s Table two weeks before (see previous blog for all the details), we brought the party to the grand ballroom at the Wyndham Boca Raton. However, the space needed a total transformation to pull off the look we envisioned for our GOH.

Upon our first meeting, we knew exactly the direction to proceed in after our stylish teen chose her invitation. The invite was on a thick board with holographic elements including a lips graphic which became our signature logo. We thought a party with a similar look would be perfect. We then went straight to Galaxy Productions with our ideas, and as always, they were excited to help us bring the vision to life.

Lounge areas with white furnishings, custom logo pillows, and silver beaded curtains would add a fun and playful element, while communal tables and high tops with plenty of candles and orchids added an elegant touch. The wrapped dance floor with enormous holographic lips was the focal point and WOW! factor to complete the design.

Our GOH wanted a unique entrance, so she entered her party in a giant light up inflatable ball. Throughout the evening Rock with U Entertainment (RWU) tossed some fabulous prizes on the dance floor. From Kylie Jenner Lip Kits and Swell bottles to t-shirts and Yeezies, the crowd went wild perfecting their best dance moves. However, the best moves of the night were during the Daddy/Daughter dance where the duo showed off their choreographed moves taught by RWU MC Chris.

The Farmer’s Table served up a most delicious feast of favorites and desserts before LiquidXCreme and Taiyaki NYC came in with some tasty nitrogen popcorn and fancy Japanese ice cream. But, just when guests thought they couldn’t eat anymore, they had to indulge in a special unicorn piñata cake by Bettersweet Bites and amazing cake pops by The Bakery Babes.

Both Jonathan of Mavila Photography and Jason Chandler of JC Video Productions captured all the love during the night.

Sealing everything with a kiss always makes a STYLED EVENT.

After a beautiful Havdalah service at Temple Beth Shalom of Boca, guests were invited for quite the treat at Farmer’s Table in Boca Raton. This dinner party was just part one of the two-part celebration for our Bat Mitzvah Guest of Honor (GOH).

The restaurant was the perfect space for an intimate gathering to truly focus on our GOH. Farmer’s Table is known as the area’s community restaurant which serves only the freshest quality foods with no additives, hormones, chemicals, GMOs, etc. Their made from scratch menu and on-site herb garden have made the local establishment a place neighbors call home. So, it was natural that our vision was to keep with the venue’s atmosphere and theme.

We went to Galaxy Productions with our thoughts, and they were right on board to help us create a natural, clean, and organic look. We chose textured linens and florals in a palette of whites and purples. Ranunculus, Peonies, and Anemones with plenty of bright greenery in natural wood boxes made amazing centerpieces. These sat amongst glowing lanterns and plenty of candlelight. Lavender sprigs were then placed on the custom menus which added just the right touch.

Indigo Dreamers greeted and entertained guests with beautiful vocals and guitar throughout the evening. The musical duo was a great complement to the ambiance with their flawless sound. Guests mingled and noshed on a delicious array of delights during cocktail hour while sipping on a creative signature drink.

An incredible three-course meal was served showcasing Farmer’s Table specialty items during the candle lighting ceremony. Later on, a creative montage, made by the one and only Montage Queen: Amy Kratish, was shown on the big screen where guests got a taste of the vivacious teen’s life thus far. Jonathan, of Mavila Photography, captured every bite of love and happiness surrounding Jancie.

A venue with a fig as their logo to symbolize origin and life couldn’t be better to celebrate one of life’s milestone moments.

A personal space that makes one feel at home always makes a STYLED EVENT.

Mazel Tov to Jancie and her family!
