How to “Hit” Your Bat Mitzvah Outta the Park!

How to “Hit” Your Bat Mitzvah Outta the Park!

Daniella Jacob loves baseball and everything it represents — hard work, determination and teamwork. These same principles guided her studies to become a Bat Mitzvah, so when planning her celebration Daniella knew baseball would play a starring role. The Jacob family worked with Amy Rubel of Rubel Event Management, to develop a theme that reflected their daughter’s passion in a unique and feminine way. Rubel collaborated with Oh So Fabulous Events to create a fun and playful vibe combining vibrant red (Daniella’s favorite color!) with pops of turquoise for a girlie, unexpected color story. 

“Mitzvah Mom Deborah knew she didn’t want the party in a typical  space, so after looking at many traditional venues we decided upon the gorgeous atrium at Kean University,” says Rubel. “It was important to the family that the festivities be fun and less structured. We partnered with the amazing Encore Catering to develop a continuous cocktail party menu with everything being passed or at stations. There was no assigned seating. The crowd was on the dance floor all night from young to old(er) and Xplosive Entertainment rocked the house!” She adds: “As a planner, I love it when client and planner are a true team and this was the case every step of the way with the Jacob family. We made thoughtful, practical decisions along the way which allowed us to knock this party outta the park.”
