Florida Atlantic University Stadium – Bnai Mitzvah Celebration, Boca Raton

For these twin brothers, the Florida Atlantic University Football Stadium was the perfect venue  to host their memorable Bnai Mitzvah celebration.

Completed in October 2011, the FAU Football Stadium is a breathtaking open-air venue and is the only stadium in the nation with a unique view of the Atlantic Ocean from the skybox. Located just off of Glades Road, Florida Atlantic University is a perfect venue for Boca residents who want to keep their celebrations close to home. The FAU Football Stadium is not just a venue for the sports loving teen, but also is a versatile space with a balcony, skybox and a great view.

A big thank you to Judy and Gary for their love and passion for their boys making this celebration for Brandon and Adam nothing short of perfect. Photography credit: Neil Cohen Photography

Basketball Bar Mitzvah Theme

Basketball is one of the most favorite themes chosen for a Barmitzvah . Perfect timing , we are almost at the end of another NBA finals. When selecting a Bar Mitzvah theme, the guest of honor usually selects something that showcases who they are and what they are passionate about.  When designing a sports themed mitzvah  one does not have to fill the space with sports paraphernalia. What I like to do is use the color of favorite team or sport to serve as inspiration for the design.  A clean contemporary feel without the clutter goes a long way to create a fresh look to your room and make it look like a $$$.

Featured below are sporty events we produced  that show two unique basketball themed Bar Mitzvahs .

Blog 1 Entire RoomA basketball arena is an ideal location for hosting your basketball themed event.

Blog 2 Teen PhotosAdorn the walls with photographs of the Bar Mitzvah boy playing basketball with an added splash of his chosen color scheme. The logo displayed here as well personalizes this event even more.
