We set up this banquet party room with balloon decorations a week ago Saturday.  It is amazing how balloons can instantly transform a room’s decor into an event.  We hope you enjoy the transformation as much as we enjoy making it happen.

Saturday’s Party Theme Had Chicago Blackhawk Custom Hockey Centerpieces

Posted by Michael on August 30, 2010

Custom Hockey Theme Bar Mitzvah Centerpiece

Chicago Blackhawks Party Centerpiece

These custom hockey table centerpiece decorations helped Justin celebrate his Bar Mitzvah last Saturday. Every table had a Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory  theme. Standing tall on each centerpiece was a colorfully painted hockey player cut out. A Stanley Cup trophy rendering and a table sign on either side complemented the player. A favorite Blackhawk players was the name of each of Jonathan’s tables. This one had the name Jonathan Toews.

More photos to follow in future posts.

Budget Bat Mitzvah Ideas by Going Theme Less

Posted by Michael on July 11, 2009

Lois Solomon wrote in Moms and Dads on the SunSentinal site about a theme-less bat mitzvah party.

In it she writes:  “To reduce costs but still make a party that is classy and fun, I’m hiring a DJ and buying some centerpieces. I bought invitations on-line and created an e-mail address for people to RSVP. In this economy, I’m not sure guests should expect much more.”  Read the rest of the article

How to Choose a (Bar Mitzvah or Bat) Mitzvah Project

Posted by Michael on June 26, 2009

I found this article by Rabbi Dara Frimmer in the JewishJournal.com on June 24, 2009. She discusses the why’s and the what’s of selecting a mitzvah project. This is an important part of this life cycle event when a young woman, or young man, transitions to Jewish adult life. A mitzvah project Rabbi Frimmer says:

…reminds us that the celebration of the bar/bat mitzvah student amid centerpieces, flowers and balloons is not only a celebration of age and accomplishment but also a celebration of his/her capacity to heal the world.

Later she continued: “Saying ‘thank you’ for all of life’s gifts won’t fit into the last few paragraphs of a student’s d’var Torah. At the moments when we are most aware of our blessings, mitzvah projects help us to concretize our feelings of gratitude through service to others. Sometimes, words are not enough; we need to act.

Read the entire story.
