Great Gobos

When using lighting as part of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah decor, why not add your child’s name, theme or interests in lights!

A “gobo” is a special metal or glass disc that goes into the light fixture to produce the desired pattern.

Having a visual projected onto the dance floor or as a backdrop on walls has a big “wow” effect…and not for a huge expense.

It can be done by your entertainment company, photographer or event planner. The example to the left is from Brad Austin Florals.
