We were so fortunate to work with this fantastic family a second time around. A couple years ago, we got to be all chic and sparkly. But this time, we were able to capture Alec’s vision which, of course, was completely opposite of his sister’s party. The focus was on all his favorite sports teams and treats from Philadelphia.
We started with the logo which was inspired by the renowned graffiti artist (Alec Monopoly) with the same moniker. The rest of the design then flowed seamlessly. Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, and 76ers were going to take center court. We then went to Galaxy Productions to discuss our thoughts and decided it would be a slam dunk to convert the Boca West Country Club’s Grand Central Deli, Sports Bar, and Grill into a personalized arena for our Guest of Honor (GOH).
Upon arrival, guests entered an inflatable sports tunnel on green turf to our extended cocktail hour which gave a taste (literally) of what was to come. The space was transformed into a sports lovers’ paradise. Bleachers were placed in the corners next to a giant wall which had video mapped images of Philadelphia sights and sporting events while the perimeter had incredible food carts reminiscent of an authentic ballpark. There was even a sighting of the Phillie Phanatic, the beloved furry green mascot of the Phillies, and Swoop the iconic mascot of the Eagles.
After indulging in tasty treats and libations, guests were then escorted to the sports-themed restaurant. Just like any game day, excitement was in the air and there was no doubt that we scored a home run with this crowd. The massive LED wall displayed our GOH’s logo before showing all kinds of graphics in combination with colorful lasers which added to the enthusiasm.
The abundance of food choices was unreal and if guests were not eating, Dale the Host had them dancing! Guests of all ages scored plenty of dance floor swag. Authentic jerseys, oversized team slippers, hats, shirts, and so much more including Reese’s Puffs cereal were fan favorites! And if all of that wasn’t enough, the Chick-fil-A food truck greeted guests upon their departure for an early (unheard of) Sunday morning snack.
Jonathan Mavila of Mavila Photography never sat on the bench as he took full court advantage to capture the entire evening’s festivities. This past summer, he even went to Philly with the family to get great shots of our GOH in his treasured hot spots which we used as part of our décor.
Shining the light on what you love always makes a STYLED EVENT!
Mazel Tov again to Alec and his family!
