Many families want their children to participate in the religious ceremony of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, even if they don’t belong to a synagogue. Such was the case for a recent client of Showplace Floral & Event Design. The creation of a temple ambiance in The Paramount venue – where the party would be celebrated immediately after the ceremony – is absolutely amazing! See for yourself…

This client wanted to recreate an atmosphere for services that had the overall appeal and ambiance of a modern temple.
Lighting was extremely important to achieve the desired mood. The Showplace used a combination of perimeter uplighting with an abundance of candles to create a warm glow and atmosphere. Staging was used to create a raised platform (bimah) to feature a low floral arrangement of hydrangea and orchids.
The show stoppers were two 8′ tall panels The Showplace custom designed and built, back lit to give the appearance of stained glass windows with a modern acrylic console table lined with more cylinders and pillar candles.
Baseball Theme Bar Mitzvah Reception
While the guests were sipping cocktails, Showplace Floral & Event Design transformed the space into a fun, vibrant setting for dinner and dancing.
Bar mitzvah boy Max’s baseball theme was reflected on giant video screens and with tall vase centerpieces creatively filled with bats or baseballs. Greenery and signage throughout the room also made guests feel like they were on the baseball field.
Once the room was set, the guests were more than ready to hit the dance floor!
