Mitzvah Inspire: A Backyard Barbecue – Inside A Temple

Exceptional-Events in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, a full service event, design and planning company brought us this great celebration.

Using the Bar Mitzvah boy’s nickname, Goldy, event planner Stacey Kesselman transformed the ballroom of Or Ami Synagogue in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania into “Goldy’s Backyard Barbecue.”

Creating a backyard BBQ feel for the temple ballroom was easy using vintage signage and banners from Visual Resources, the family’s business, as well as picnic tables, paper lanterns and garden flowers. “Eat, Drink and Enjoy” was the theme for the night and everyone did just that.
