When Justin Havas was getting ready for his bar mitzvah, he expected a quiet luncheon following the service and a dinner party reception with basketball decorations. Who could have guessed the surprises that lay ahead would have the entire day pay homage to his beloved sport, and sure – a little bit to him as well. Photography by: A Magic Moment.
A lunch reception at Rosen Campus South JCC followed the ceremony. A kiddush with basketball balloons and team cookies enhanced this sports-lovers dream!
The décor was just the beginning when it came to Justin’s favorite sport. Imagine his surprise when former NBA player Nick Anderson showed up to play a few rounds of hoops with the bar mitzvah boy and his friends. Talk about a dream come true!
Like any well-mannered man, Anderson didn’t show up this party empty-handed! He brought Justin a basketball autographed with the NBA’s most impressive signatures.
One day with an NBA legend and Justin was already a high-roller. He was surprised with this flashy blue Lamborghini and absolutely ecstatic when he got to drive it to his reception.
Talk about memories! Guests signed in on this chair that will stay with Justin through sports games and BBQs as an ongoing reminder of his special day.
Bar Mitzvah Centerpieces
The day of basketball continued at the Omni Championsgate Hotel, where nets and balls became clever centerpieces at Justin’s evening dinner party. Justin and his friends were seated at tables with different basketball team names. Team jerseys made for unique and colorful centerpieces.
As intertwined as ever, this card box was as much about basketball as it was about Justin, welcoming all the guests to a sports-themed occasion!
Sometimes less is more; these place card holders flawlessly honored Justin’s bar mitzvah theme.
Golf shuttles made for the perfect transportation for guests.
Games & Entertainment
Basketball-themed games were scattered throughout the reception hall, allowing guests of all ages to take part!
As if the basketball-themed activities weren’t entertaining enough, caricatures, photo booths and arcade games awaited the Havas family’s happy guests.
Sports Theme Cupcakes & Candle Lighting
Cupcakes decorated with different party and basketball designs replaced the cake, and made for a delectable treat! Without a traditional cake, this colorful and simple design was a perfect alternative for Justin’s candle lighting ceremony.
What a special day it was! Thank you to the Havas Family for letting us be a part of it and Mazel Tov to Justin. Photography by: A Magic Moment.
