Mitzvah Inspire: All About Sports and Orange

If you were concerned that a sports theme might be too simple for your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah, allow Chris Macksey and Barbara Roos of Bold American Events to change your mind. The duo designed this sport-astic April 2012 party for David of Atlanta, and they really pulled out all the creativity stops.

Inspired by the Bar Mitzvah boy’s love for all sports, the Bold American Events team (designers Chris and Barbara along with event coordinator Inda Royall) transformed Atlanta’s Grand Hyatt into a sports fanatic’s dream.
