Single Level Custom Basketball Bar Mitzvah Centerpiece Table Decoration

Posted by Michael on September 19, 2010

Single Level Bar Mitzvah Basketball CenterpiecePictured here is a custom single level basketball centerpiece that is simple to make. It is creative, yet unique in the way it tells its story theme. The party celebration centers around college basketball teams.

The basketball centerpiece parts are easy to transport for do it yourselfers.  Assembly takes but a few minutes at the party or event celebration.

We spray paint the top of the 12″ square styrofoam base with silver paint and ribbon the edges.  Mylar paper poofs in team or theme colors are placed around the center where the ball is attached to the base.  A team banner is added on a wooden dowel embellished with curling ribbon.  The team name is the table name which corresponds to names on the place cards.

Another simple but unique creative idea for your sports banquet, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, theme wedding rehearsal or reception, retirement, birthday, or corporate event or party.

Use Easy Laminations to Accent Your DIY Party Centerpiece Creations

Posted by Michael on December 5, 2009

We added a new page on lamination cut outs to our site. A-BnC Parties can clear laminate a furnished picture, graphic or other art work for your do it yourself centerpiece. Then we mount it on a piece of rigid 3/4” polystyrene. We will custom cut out the photo as well as the backing piece. Most pieces are mounted on both sides and we accommodate reflected images. Use for a Bar Mitzvah Centerpiece, Bar Mitzvah Centerpiece, Wedding or other party centerpiece.

A Simple DIY Formula for a Halloween (or other) Centerpiece Decoration for a Bat Mitzvah Party

Posted by Michael on November 18, 2009

We wanted to share a formula for some cute centerpieces we helped put together for a Halloween themed bat mitzvah party a just a few weeks ago.

Use these construction techniques to decorate your party with attractive centerpieces.  Support a stick or flexible plastic tube by gluing onto a piece of styrofoam or wood.  Insert into your base (here a plastic jack-o-lantern) and glue.  The base can also be a shopping bag, small box, decorated box, theme box (i.e. computer), etc.  Camouflage with some tissue or mylar paper.  Add a large picture (or other theme piece)  at the top mounted to a rigid piece of cardboard or polystyrene and attached to the stick or flexible plastic tube.

Add theme related garnishments – here we used leaves, scarecrows, dried flowers, etc.  Or it can be anything complimenting the theme you select.

Posted by Michael on October 6, 2009

This past weekend we had the privilege of setting up the centerpiece and balloon decorations for Daniel’s Bar Mitzvah party in Buffalo Grove, IL.  The theme was da Chicago Bears’ football!   The party participants were greeted at the place card table with this “name” centerpiece.

Two different sized Chicago Bears football themed centerpieces decorated the tables, along with matching balloons.  There were one level centerpieces with a picture of one of Daniel’s favorite players.
