For an avid soccer player like Adin Rosenblatt, it was a no-brainer what the theme for his bar mitzvah party would be. Add in the fact that the World Cup had just taken place, and his family knew it was going to be one kickin‘ party!
His parents, Sherie and Todd, partnered with L&Jay Productions and Einat Loskovitz of Eventful Party Planning to bring their vision to life. The Rosenblatts had worked with L&Jay for their own wedding, so the couple had first–hand experience with the amazing job they do.
Jerseys and soccer balls from different countries were incorporated into the centerpieces for a unique look.
Robyn Joyce, of A Catered Affair, helped get creative with the food. Instead of a more formal sit–down dinner, they opted for fun food stations. There were make– your–own tacos with meat or fish, french fries with several dipping sauces, a pasta bar and appetizers from around the world. There was definitely something for everyone, and the stations allowed guests to mingle about as they got their food.
Dingo Entertainment provided the emceeing and music keeping the crowd dancing all evening. Sherie had heard Dingo at other functions and loved how they entertained the guests, so they knew they were in good hands.
The kids definitely had plenty to do…. aside from dancing, games included ping pong, air hockey, foosball and cornhole – and they were all LED, which added such a cool effect!
The photo booth from Amurica provided instant pictures, and the DJ gave away gift cards throughout the night. They even found an artist to airbrush hats for the kids.
After speaking with Einat, the Rosenblatts knew they wanted to do something different than the typical swag and their choice did not disappoint! Sherie said, “It was a huge hit!”
It took a lot of brainstorming and thought to make the evening a success.
“Einat was amazing to work with,” said Sherie. “She helped me make calls when I couldn’t. She organized everything. I had a lot of ideas but needed help putting it all together. I had seen her work at another bar mitzvah and could tell she was creative and had fresh ideas. I recognized her go–get–them personality and knew she would be able to get the job done. She made it so enjoyable. When I would call to ask her about something, she would say, ‘That’s why you hired me.‘”
