The Barnett Bar Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Barnett family from Boca Raton, Florida, celebrated son Brett’s Bar Mitzvah on Saturday, January 24, 2015. The service was held in the morning at Congregation B’nai Israel and then it was onto the outdoor party held at the Sunset Cove Amphitheater in Boca Raton, Florida.

B.A.D, Colors 2015 was the theme, standing for (Brett After Dark). The family wanted it to feel like the Color Runs that are popular at festivals and 5ks. There were lots of glow-in-the dark colors, great music, delicious food, which were all really B.A.D,

B.A.D. Colors 2015 was the theme. Party Planner Julie Cohen of It Events worked with the family and it all went off without a hitch! Everyone got into the spirit of the night especially when the color powder was discharged from 15 fire extinguishers.

From Dad Craig and Mom Misti:
“Do not be afraid to think out of the box in order to create something truly unique and memorable. If you don’t see what you want, don’t be afraid to create it yourself and make it truly unique. The Internet is a great source of ideas and lower cost alternatives to customizing your party. Don’t feel obligated to follow the herd. There are no “must-haves.” Include those elements that you want and skip those you don’t. Most importantly, make sure the party fits the honoree’s personality.”
