On June 29th, 2013, Aaron celebrated his bar mitzvah with friends and family at The Fairmont Pittsburgh with games, dancing, delicious food, and great entertainment. It was a wonderful night for both adults and children. The party ambiance was reflective of early 1920’s elegance with a modern twist. The color palate was all neutrals which was in sharp contrast to the colorful luncheon enjoyed by guests earlier that day at the temple. The table centerpieces were created with fresh floral in white and ivory tones and lucite candleabras created by Allison Mcgeary Floral Design. The ballroom featured eight gorgeous crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling provided by All Occasions and installed by PSAV. The ceiling above the dance floor created by Festivities featured large clusters of tan, white, clear and ivory balloons creating a champagne bubble effect dripping overhead while dancing.
Upon entering the Fairmont lobby cocktail area, adults were directed to food stations with choices of mini tacos or chicken and crab sandwiches, while trays of sushi and other hors d’ oeuves were being passed. Kids immediately made their way into the grand ballroom where they participated in a game show provided by Wenning Entertainment competing for prizes. After adults had found their seats by table charts displayed on mirrors, hung, and illuminated in the lounge area and the game show had come to an end, the DJ kicked up the energy with some music and dancing. Kids danced, received balloon sculptures from ABC Ballon Twisting, and got creative with Interactive Entertainment’s Virtual Graffiti Wall. At dinnertime, kids’ sat at long rectangular tables covered with pecan linens located in close proximity to their buffet dinner station, while adults were seated at round tables behind the kids where they were served each of their courses. An Italian Soda Bar was set up inside the ballroom for soda refills all night long based on a customized menu. Their drinks were served in personalized light up cups for kids to keep as a souvenir from the event. After a trio of desserts were served to adults and cotton candy and mini milkshakes were passed to the kids, guests gathered around to watch dancers from Glyde Productions perform a break dancing set.
With the fun and excitement at an all time high, kids continued their night was more dancing and casino games provided by Entertainment Unlimited. For a sweet ending, a candy station was set up and guests filled personalized take out containers with assortments of sweet goodies. There was also a tcookie table, traditionally seen at most Pittsburgh weddings, with a delicious assortment baked by friends, family and Bella Christie Sweet Boutique. At the end of the night adults were seen packing cookie bags with treats while kids stuffed personalized drawl string bags with the prizes and gifts they had gathered all through the night. We loved being a part of your big night, Aaron! Mazel Tov!
