I’m a 7th grader and live in Westchester, NY. I love tennis, soul cycle, fashion, hanging with my friends, and traveling around the world. Camp Vega is my summer home and my favorite place on earth! I founded the company #Kindnessistherealcool for my Mitzvah Project, and invite everyone to visit us on Instagram @kindnessistherealcool and join the movement. I celebrated my Bat Mitzvah in March, 2015. Read about my celebration here.
Last weekend, I attended my friend Max’s Bar Mitzvah in a tent in his backyard. His color scheme was neon yellow and silver-gray.
Everything at his party reflected this color scheme, and his logo was “Take It To The Max”
During the cocktail hour, there was a basketball station, a photo booth, a family feud trivia game, a magician walking around doing tricks, a four-player pac man game, and a large table that was a giant iPad.
We all loved the Pac Man game
Here is the iPad table
After cocktail hour, we were led to the dance floor where we stayed the entire night! Guests were given neon yellow tank tops, t-shirts and hats on the dance floor, all featuring the “Take It To The Max” logo.
Here’s all our neon swag!
The adults were seated at one long table with a unique sculpture of neon lights hanging above it
Kids, when they weren’t dancing, could hang out in a lounge area featuring gray couches, neon yellow pillows with Max’s initials, and chic modern glass tables
In the middle of the party, some dancers changed into neon costumes. Special lights were turned on and everyone in the room “glowed” in their neon gear, along with the dancers. It was so cool!
A glowing Neon dancer!
Near the end of the party, a giant dessert table was presented. There was an insane amount of dessert! There were 7 different kinds of cupcakes, cakes, huge chocolate covered strawberries, shopping carts filled with candy, pop tarts and more!
As party favors, kids received cool mesh, neon drawstring bags, and gray Alternative Apparel waffle shirts, along with the neon gear they got on the dance floor.
Max’s party was amazing – everyone had the best time. Mazel Tov Max!
