Mazel Tov to the Barr Family! We were so honored and deeply touched by the thought and care that went into the preparation of Ethan’s Bar Mitzvah celebration. When we first met with Gina, our Mitzvah’s Mom, she told us that while this event was all about her youngest son Ethan and the importance of truly celebrating his becoming a Bar Mitzvah, they also wanted to embrace the wide circle of family and friends that would be coming from near and very far to celebrate with them. So while we naturally wanted to feature Ethan and his passion for sports, we also were tasked with involving everyone invited. We immediately thought of the ‘Wide World of Sports’ but with a twist. Why not embrace the wide world of Ethan’s family and friends? And thus a logo was born!
Gina put alot of thought into her menu and we had the pleasure of working with Aaron Gold of Zeffert and Gold who fully embraced our client’s vision to offer a wide menu featuring the Barr Family’s ancestry. We designed luncheon menus and food station signs to showcase the amazing menu of foods from around the world including Russia, India, Turkey, Israel, Italy and Morroco. Stations had clever names embracing the food and warming the guests heart such as ‘From Kasha With Love’. Guests raved about the unusual menu and the delicious delicacies, prepared by Zeffert and Gold.
We also had the pleasure of working with Spinny who entertained the teens for the first hour with basketball tricks. He and Ethan had a little show prepared for the guests which they performed right after the grand entry. This lead into the welcome speech, which was one of the most touching moments of this thoughtful event. Ethan’s Dad, Michael, invited several family members to offer their heartfelt congratulations to Ethan in their native language ranging from Moroccan, Russian, Italian to Yiddush. One of our favorite was a cousin of Gina’s from New York who simply said “Yo Ethan, you did great!”
