Noah Glantz is a huge sports fan, whose favorite team is the New York Giants. What better way to show his fandom then by hosting a NY Giants-themed party for his bar mitzvah?! Chad David Kraus Photography captured the entire day, as well as some amazing pre-shots at Met Life stadium where the Giants play.
Noah and the entire Glantz family took photos at Metlife Stadium prior to his Bar Mitzvah to display at his affair. The family wore matching Glantz t-shirts that featured a logo mimicking the Giants logo, using their last name in place of Noah’s favorite team! Several of these pictures were blown up and displayed around the room and during cocktail hour, and also used them as ‘video wallpaper’, displayed on the screen when the montage wasn’t being played.
For Noah’s mitzvah project, he chose to raise money to install a special sound system by William Sound in his sanctuary to help those with hearing impairments, such as his own grandfather.

How creative!

The decor was kept simple and classy, with a scheme of silver, white, red and blue. The football theme and logo were featured throughout the party, including the centerpieces, sign in board, favors, light up logo, t-shirts for servers and dance motivators, and more! Centerpieces featured photo chandeliers with pictures of Noah through the years and small votive candles at the base, and of course the Glantz and NG logo, raised high above the tables. Football-themed photo cubes also added a personalized touch.
Noah’s friends had an exclusive teen area for them to hang out in, that kept with the evenings Glantz/Giants theme, but featured more relaxed touches like a bright blue couch and fun personalized throw pillows!
Noah’s custom logo was featured everywhere throughout the night: from LED photo cubes to water bottles, cocktail napkins to menus, and even a special edition of Sports Illustrated featuring the bar mitzvah boy himself on the cover! Noah’s mom noted that consistent use of the graphic helped her really feel like it pulled the event together.
Noah, the Glantz family, and all of their family and friends had an incredible evening celebrating the bar mitzvah of Noah. Let’s hope the Giants can pull through this season for their biggest fan, Noah! Mazel tov!!
