A Cleveland Browns B Mitzvah

A Cleveland Browns B Mitzvah

Sports themes are one of the most common and popular themes for a B Mitzvah party- and in New York and the east coast, the local professional teams reign supreme. While a Giants or Yankees or Red Sox party is always a huge hit, it’s always a challenge to reinvent the proverbial party wheel. That’s why Melisa Imberman of the event planning company The Event of a Lifetime was pleasantly surprised to be tasked with designing a Cleveland Browns themed party for Bar Mitzvah boy Alex.

Set at scenic Tappan Hill in Tarrytown, New York, Alex’s Browns Mitzvah service took place on a bright and beautiful day in the stunning outdoor garden lined with lush florals and greenery.



After Alex’s turn up at the Torah, the tone shifted from scenic to sporty sensational as everyone headed inside for cocktails, dinner, and all of the fun to come for the evening. The first thing they saw inside was an escort card table decked out in Browns memorabilia and florals that surrounded an “Alex” goalpost. To find their seating arrangements, guests looked for their “ticket” that indicated which team’s table they’d be sitting at.

Walking into the party was like walking into the Browns’ fan section the Dawg Pound, and Alex and his guests were ready to get wild. The kids’ bar as well as the locker room style photobooth were decked out in Dawg Pound insignia, making it feel like a private VIP tour of FirstEnergy Stadium.

And what’s a VIP experience without a luxe lounge to relax in? Plush brown leather couches and matching orange ottomans let the MVPs kick their feet up and chill in between all of the action of the party. Adults could take the edge off with a drink from the dogged up open bar.

Of course, a rugged sporty party does not have to come at the expense of class and luxury- just look at the table settings, floating candles, and stunning floral centerpieces, all of which highlight and complement the Browns’ iconic brown and orange color scheme. The subtle orange uplighting warmed up the space and tied the whole room together.

After a joyous celebration of dancing, eating, and games, the big game was coming to a close. As a final stadium style treat, guests were treated to a fresh baked pretzel plucked right off of a quirky pretzel umbrella. They finished them off with their favorite toppings, making for a perfect treat for the ride home.

Every sports B Mitzvah is unique in its own way… and even more so when a New Yorker backs their Midwest team from halfway across the country! For Alex and his Mad Dawg crew, the chance to be first string players in an epic Browns Mitzvah was an event they’ll never forget. After becoming a man on this monumental day, Alex is well on his way to playing in the big leagues of life.
