One of the most fun parts of planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is picking a theme and incorporating the guest of honor’s favorite things into their special day. Bar Mitzvah boy Paul and his family took it a step further by hosting Paul’s reception at Yankee Stadium! From a pre-Bar Mitzvah photoshoot in the dugout and locker room, to a montage played on the jumbotron, this truly was an event of a lifetime planned by none other than Melisa Imberman of The Event of a Lifetime, Inc.

The reception took place in the Delta 360 Suite which is directly behind home plate with floor to ceiling windows that provide unbelievable views of the field. Luckily, the weather cooperated and guests got to enjoy spending time outside on the patio, as well.
Silver balloons provided a cool contrast against the black and white photos that adorned the walls of the suite depicting Yankee greats of the past.
Centerpieces included planters of grass branded with Paul’s logo that housed baseballs, mitts and bats.
Paul’s logo was displayed throughout the day including as a projection on the floor of the space!
Classic stadium snacks like pretzels and popcorn were served in large Yankees buckets with small souvenir Yankees caps for kids to fill with goodies.
As favors, guests received a bunch of Yankees paraphernalia including the socks pictured above!
It was an incredible day for an incredibly special Bar Mitzvah boy, Paul and his family, as well as all of their guests. Aside from the usual dancing and eating, kids got to partake in a Home Run Derby, as well as take pictures that were superimposed on Sports Illustrated covers. Mazel Tov, Paul!
