What an exciting bat mitzvah we had on October 13th! Amanda, a tennis phenom, at her young age, wanted to share her love of the sport with all of her friends and family for her bat mitzvah. We took her inspiration of tennis and her young energy to create a fun event for both the kids and adults!
While entering the venue, guests were able to find their designated table on paper tennis balls that were attached to real tennis nets. The tables did not have numbers. Instead, the tables were all names of cities in which Amanda has participated in tennis tournaments. When adults arrived at their tables there were “statistic cards” which explained more details about each of the tournaments. The adult’s table centerpieces included 3-D pictures of Amanda at her designated city tournaments, and a giant tennis racquet with ball were raised high above the photo bases.
The kids were free to choose whatever seat they would like in “The Players’ Lounge”. “The Players’ Lounge” featured fun balloon centerpieces with tennis ball bases.
Hanging from the ceiling were giant posters of Amanda playing tennis and “posing” with her favorite tennis pros for a dramatic effect.
Food was plentiful during the cocktail reception and it did not stop the rest of the night. Both kids and adults dined at stations set up by Common Plea Catering for dinner. While a full bar was provided for the adults, kids were able to treat their taste buds to an Italian soda bar, where they could create their own flavored sodas! Bella Christie Sweet Boutique created a beautiful tennis-themed spread of treats which also included fresh donuts made onsite from their donut cart. Common Plea Catering passed mini milkshakes to enjoy while dancing.
MC Chris Cross really got the party going for both the kids and adults! Though, the dancing was just one fun aspect of this party, the digital graffiti wall seemed to be a popular place for the kids to hang out and adults and kids alike enjoyed getting decorated by airbrushed tattoos. All kids went home with a persoanlized drawstring back pack filled with lots of goodies including a custom designed beach towel and personalized candy and chapstick . It was a fabulous event for a lovely young lady – best wishes Amanda!
