We knew from the very beginning that this Bar Mitzvah would be one like we had never done before. Add a hurricane warning in the mix and this certainly was a first. Considering our service and party were scheduled at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa which happens to be in an evacuation zone, we were on standby all week. But fortunately, we continued with our preparations and Hurricane Dorian couldn’t keep us from celebrating this milestone moment with this great family.
Our Guest of Honor (GOH) loves fashion amongst many other things such as basketball and rap. He wanted to put all these things together. Although this is a frequent request admidst our teens, this one had to be extremely unique. Our GOH George needed his own brand ~ a collaboration of sorts… and, that’s exactly what we did!
We took the vision to Galaxy Productions and created some elaborate designs to execute the plan. The Flagler Ballroom at the Eau Palm Beach would be transformed into George’s flagship store. Guests would enter through a custom storefront before finding their way to their tables and oversized custom wrapped dance floor and stage. Arches were designed to link the tables together and crystal chandeliers hung from above. Calla lilies, succulents, and plenty of candles completed the look of a high-end department store.
The space had areas for each of the collaborations which included Nike, NBA, KITH, and Comme des Garçons. George’s signature collab logos were on merchandise that guests could wear and take home. From t-shirts, fuzzy PJ shorts, and hats to custom slides, jerseys, athletic shorts, and basketballs, nothing was overlooked. The branded Nike Air Force 1’s were they eye of this storm. (Everyone had their eyes on them.) Of course, all teens and ‘tweens received branded backpacks to put all their swag inside.
Geo and his team from New York had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. This group enjoyed the non-stop party while the Eau served up elaborate stations for dinner. FotoBoyz took great shots of all our party peeps to create a magnificent mosaic image of our GOH and the talented Denis Leon managed to capture the vibe of the night through his lens. The only aftermath from this amazing event was the confetti which came in as a Category 5!
Rockin’ it like a hurricane always makes a STYLED EVENT!
Mazel Tov again to George and his family!
