I loved working with Jake and his family for his hockey-themed Bar Mitzvah Party at Pinstripes Georgetown. They are my favorite type of clients–they knew what they wanted, they appreciated my help and guidance and most of all, they wanted to have a really, really fun party. The venue was the perfect location for his low-key, Labor Day Bar Mitzvah celebration.

The evening started with cocktails for the adults and delicious snacks, bowling and bocce for all!

After that, we went upstairs when the real partying began! The room looked stunning with red uplighting and centerpieces featuring lights, hockey sticks, hockey pucks and Jake’s logo. Some tables had hockey skates and others had hockey helmets as part of the centerpiece base. Each table also had a photo of Jake at various ages playing hockey which served as the table number.

Guests loved the seating chart which was shaped like a hockey ice rink with jerseys on top. The jerseys were removable and served as escort cards, directing guests to their table number.

I always love a good hora and this was one of the funniest ones I’ve ever been part of! With the low ceilings at Pinstripes, one of the guests had the bright idea to take a hockey helmet from a centerpiece and give it to Jake (and the rest of the family) to prevent hora-related head injuries. Hilarious!

It was a pleasure to work with this family for Jake’s Bar Mitzvah party and they were pretty happy too:

Brynne is super easy to work with, detail oriented and on top of everything. She is creative and will help you come up with a great theme, find you vendors that work with your personalities, provide the services you want and in your budget. Most importantly, Brynne was someone I could completely trust. I knew she had our best interests in mind when making decisions about the party. Our son had a clear vision of what he wanted and she never tried to convince him to do anything he didn’t want to do- instead she worked with him to provide the perfect party for him. We were impressed with how Brynne handled coordinating with all the vendors in the weeks leading up to the party. I felt super confident that Brynne had everything handled, so I took her advice and just enjoyed every minute of the party. We couldn’t be happier with Brynne and will be using her again for our other son’s bar mitzvah party.
