Parker Siegel always knew his Bar Mitzvah theme would involve the world of entertainment. He’s been exposed to movies and TV shows through his Mom and Dad most of his life.
He and his Dad both love movies and his Mom has worked in the entertainment industry for the last 20 years. She was even able to have some of her famous friends wish Parker a “Happy Bar Mitzvah” at the end of his very creative montage.
We thank them for sharing Parker’s celebration with our readers.

Parker’s invitations were created by Marjorie Berrant of Invitations Plus.
The invitation was a metallic color
The direction and response cards along with the stamp let guests know the theme would be Parker Productions!
The theme of this Bar Mitzvah was “Parker Productions” with many unique touches as you will see below. The flowers and room decor were by Scarcella’s.
The entrance to his party included a red carpet, step n repeat signage by EJ The DJ, and star decals on the floor from Stumps Party. Parker’s logo was by logotournament.com, a logo contest site where designers all around the country compete to come up with an exclusive design for a winning fee paid by you
Many of the “production” decor came from Stumps Party which was recommended by Mitzvah Market!

With the theme of Parker Productions, it’s no surprise his entrance video and montage were uber creative! Check them out below:
Parker became very fond of rock climbing at a young age. With this in mind, John Braile produced an entrance video showing that no mission is impossible!

Some advice from Mitzvah Mom Jenn:
“Don’t lose sight of who this party is really for. Remember that you want to have an event in which both the kids and the adults have a great night, so be balanced with your plans. And most importantly, make sure you and your family enjoy this special celebration, because there are no better words than when you hear your own child say… it was the best night of their life. Especially when you feel that same way.”
