Fashion Theme Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party

“Adamcrombie” Themed Bar Mitzvah

“Adamcrombie” Themed Bar Mitzvah

Adam Farber celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in April of 2010 at Warehouse 5 in Island Park, New York. Mom Michelle is the owner of M. Studio Events and planned every detail for their “Adamcrombie” theme. She is known for branding and we are excited to show you all her very clever ideas.

All photography is by Kornfeld Studios and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom.

Michelle created the “Adamcrombie” theme, and wanted her concept to tell a story and tie together all the details. Her idea started with the invitation below and came to life at their celebration when guests watched their entrance video created by Ethan from Kornfeld Studios.

Adam Farber entrance video

Take a look at their creative entrance video here

In the video, Adam arrives at the Abercrombie offices and meets with an executive, (played by his grandfather). He explains that he has a great idea to get their company on its feet again. Skeptically, the owner listens and says, “Kid, I will give you until April 10th to get this business going.” The video shows Adam working very hard to turn things around. This all made sense to their guests who arrived at their celebration to find the venue set up as a store. It was complete with friends and family discount cards, clothing hanging on racks and all the other details you will see below.

Michelle told us, “What I was truly trying to accomplish first and foremost, was to celebrate our son’s Bar Mitzvah in a way that he would love, but I also wanted to showcase my talents in launching my event planning business.”

Michelle wanted to re-create an Abercrombie store experience and her attention to detail began with their invitation. Take a look below:

Adam Farber - Poppy

Adam’s Bar Mitzvah service took place at home. There was a very special moment during the service when Adam and his grandfather “Poppy” were Bar Mitzvah’d together!

Mitzvah Advice from Michelle

“Organization, creativity and working with amazing people will get you to your end result. That is why my business has evolved into more of a “party” concierge service, rather than event planning. I can offer just one or two of the elements that you see in Adam’s party, or work with a client to organize the entire event. My main objective is for my client (who ultimately becomes a friend) to be a guest at their own party. I love dotting every “I’ and crossing every “T.” It makes me happy to see the end result, but I LOVE the process!”
