Once deciding on the venue for this B’nai Mitzvah, the theme pretty much created itself. The vision was to design a beach resort feel with underwater experience to coordinate with the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort in their Compass Ballroom. Although, it’s not difficult to feel like you’re on vacation when you check into one of South Florida’s newest beachfront properties on Hollywood Beach, we wanted this event to be a passport to paradise.
The idea was then incorporated into the invites. The invitations were engraved in wood to replicate driftwood complete with an RSVP in a glass bottle. They were then shipped in a box with tissue shred instead of the traditional envelope.
Next up was designing a floor plan to accommodate a large amount of guests and recreate a standard ballroom into a vacation retreat. Of course, Galaxy Productions always loves our visions and took on the challenge to build cabanas to house our guests’ tables and seating.
The other key component was to video map the space to look like an aquarium. This was definitely a “WOW” focal factor which added to the already amazing ballroom. An entire wall had huge moving images of sea life which changed throughout the evening.
The color palette of only white filled the space making a chic statement around the custom dance floor with water image video mapping. The main florals used were Phalaenopsis Orchids, Pincushions and Anthuriums held in vases with seashells for a tropical feel. Just Bars then installed the perfect bar to complement the look with a nautical back bar complete with an aquatic visual of swimming fishes.
Margaritaville Resort served up delicious cuisine on the most incredible themed food station displays. Rock With U Entertainment played a set list fused with their drummer that had the guests on their feet all night long. Lux Images and Senderey Video Productions were on site to capture all the picture perfect memories.
The teens enjoyed a variety of games including a surf simulator, as well as an assortment of smoothies to give them a vacation-like experience. Similar to being on vacation, everyone was happy to indulge in Donut Divas’ delectable confectionaries and the hostesses’ over the top candy bar which was a sweet way to complete the evening.
To relax and enjoy always makes a STYLED event.
