This Bar Mitzvah was all about fun from the start. Our guest of honor, Ryan, loves video games, and wanted plenty at his party. We took our cue from this, and we let the games begin.

First off, we had to secure a bunch of his favorite arcade games which would be used during the entire event, and not just for the cocktail hour. Of course, these included Pole Position, Xbox, Air Hockey, as well as LED Ping Pong, Foosball, and the much-requested Light Game.

We then had to configure the ballroom at Weston Hills Country Club to include space for his large selection in addition to the large amount of guests, buffet stations, and dance cubes. Fortunately, the club is sizable and worked well with our game plan.

Next up, was creating décor to complement the theme. Tali Table Designs and Eventorist took our vision and everything was “aglow”. The custom tables with clear ghost chairs had neon lighting around the perimeter, and the centerpieces showcased neon lit game names as well as acrylic structures filled with neon-colored water, and plenty of votives.

As guests arrived they took neon bracelets which had their seat assignments. The purpose was for everyone to have a little glow on. The teens loved wearing a bunch up their arms, as they got into the spirit of celebrating.

Weston Hills Country Club placed a variety of buffet stations which covered every meal for every taste bud. From their infamous French toast sticks to traditional bagels and lox to carving and Asian stations, one did not leave hungry. Adults loved the Mimosa, Sangria, and Bloody Mary bars, and kids loved their very own smoothie bar which, of course, had glowing neon cups.

Pure Energy Entertainment brought their “A Game” as the party on the dance floor never stopped. MC Bryan, not only acted as the emcee, but also a Coach as he had multiple requests for playing “Coke and Pepsi” which kept the kids competitive and entertained.

Heather Funk Photography and All Digital Productions captured all the smiles proving that it’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.

Throwing it back old school always makes for a STYLED EVENT!

Mazel Tov to Ryan and his family!
