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 .
A basketball arena is an ideal location for hosting your basketball themed event.
Adorn 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.
The dance floor is a prime spot for personalization.
A glowing orange bar including the chosen logo.
Floral tablescapes created with ” color orange as the central theme.
Orange print linen from nuage designs custom made for this event.
Basketball teams with two colors, like the LA Lakers above, allows for unique decor from the centerpieces to napkins and more.
Display basketball memorabilia such as hats and basketballs on tables incorporating the sport into the color scheme.

Completing your Basketball Themed Bar Mitzvah by having special guests such as members of the professional Harlem Wizards basketball team shown here, is a sure way to make the event memorable for the guest of honor and all of his guests.
