Celebrate - New Season
The Udell Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

Ethan Udell is into music and wanted a “Rock Tour” theme for his Bar Mitzvah celebration which was held January 22, 2011 at The Hamlet in Commack, New York.

We are excited to share their ideas with all of you!

All vendor information is listed at the bottom. Party photography was done by Classy Candids.

Stamp - Mitzvah Decor

 

United Floral did a great job transforming this ballroom using life-sized mannequins dressed as rock stars. They were placed on the tables as centerpieces and appear to be holding guitars, mikes and gear bags. They also used goth black lamps with red bulbs; black cylinders with faux red rose balls; vases with black florals.

There were also enlarged posters of Ethan rocking out, along with posters of his favorite bands on easels around the room

Guests knew they were in the right place when arriving and seeing Ethan’s name projected on the entryway floor!

Ethan’s own guitar case served as the sign-in board.
