Event planners Tracy Davis-Fox and Judy Davis of Party Artistry were asked to create a one-of-a-kind experience for a B’not Mitzvah. The team at Party Artistry transformed the traditional ballroom at the Hilton Short Hills in New Jersey, into a country-western inspired Mitzvah hoe-down. This was one amazing Brodeo, a play on the family’s last name.
Saddle up, and get ready to read about this amazing party.

Party Invitation/Place Cards/Menu
This engraved wooden invitation was sent in a crate of hay and set the tone for the upcoming party
When guests arrived, they were greeted by engraved wooden horse place cards
At each place setting, there was a menu in the shape of a cowboy boot
Party Artistry created a western village complete with Sheriff’s office, saloon, jail and a general store.
A stylish, rustic feel was achieved by using mismatched chairs, vintage plates and solid gold table linens to signify "The Gold Rush" era

The R&D Saloon named using the sisters' first initials was a popular hangout. Party Artistry also brought in rolls of wide plank faux wood linoleum flooring adding to the western feel
Guests loved the saloon-style brown wooden tables and galvanized light fixtures suspended from the ceiling
Some of the centerpieces were tall faux cactus with wildflowers in assorted containers
Other tables had cowboy boot centerpieces filled with dried wheat
The dance floor was wrapped in a photo of hay and dirt with the logo superimposed along with a rope like border
On the walls there was a combination of faux distressed wood,(corrugated paper), and feminine lace. There were a few seating options like this cozy lounge area with bales of hay
Additional Party Details
When guests got off the elevator, they were greeted by a life-sized horse and cowboy in a scene with lanterns and tumbleweeds at the place card table
Of course, there was a mechanical bull-riding station which guests all enjoyed
Custom logo'd pillows and throws were a great decor element in the lounge area
The dessert was S'mores presented in mason jars
