Ski Themed B’nai Mitzvah

Ski Themed B’nai Mitzvah

The Klein family from Sands Point, New York celebrated twins Avery and Spencer’s B’nai Mitzvah on January 7, 2017, the date of their actual birthday. The venue, the Sands Point Golf Club in Sands Point, New York was transformed into the ultimate ski lodge for this ski lovin’ family!

Although there was a surprise blizzard that day, the venue was close by for a majority of guests and most made the trek and they are all so glad they did. Mom Rachael thought out every detail and the snow just added to the amazing atmosphere!

Invitation and Service

Mitzvah Style

 Logo and Branding

From the moment the guests arrived to their parting gifts, the theme was constant.

Mitzvah Signage

Ski signage was everywhere. The guests pulled up to the valet as if they were getting off a chairlift and were directed inside for cocktails.  A giant ski mountain backdrop filled the entryway incorporating Avery and Spencer. Trail maps led adult guests to their tables where the table name was printed on logo’d wood.

Music Entertainment

Party Photo Booths

Simon Elliot Events provided 2 amazing and equally fun photo booths. 

Party Entertainment

The tent was transformed into a kids lounge after the cocktail hour and included additional entertainment for the kids. No one likes to miss the party because they are waiting in line so the Klein’s chose games that were able to include multiple players.

Mitzvah Project

Avery and Spencer volunteered at various Autism programs helping to raise money for autism and mentor autistic children. Spencer also attends a camp for those with social needs so he raised money to send underprivileged kids to be able to attend summer camp.

Advice from Mom Rachael

“Most important is that the event reflects the child. In our case with boy/girl twins, we were lucky that they both love to ski. I am a big fan of little details that are interesting and special. Small things make an impact and the night more special and memorable. A lot of events have the same elements. For me, it was incorporating special signage, decor authentic items and cocktail napkins. The dancers and bartenders were in logo’d shirts with ‘Ski Patrol’ on the back and I carried the plaid originally on the invitation through to the service on the kippot and throughout the celebration in several subtle ways. Incorporating personal ski videos into their montage and having the Waffle Cabin as a surprise dessert nailed a ski resort. We kept the party moving on a journey, so the night was always exciting. Really spend time thinking about the theme and the little ways that interesting elements can be incorporated. Anyone can search the internet, it helps spark creativity. Additionally, I kept the party dancing by not doing the Horah right after we entered. We did it later on after the candle lighting time and montage. Guests actually noticed and remarked how clever it was to mix it up as we kept them dancing all night long.”
