NY Giants Football Tailgate Bar Mitzvah Party

Football Tailgate Bar Mitzvah Party ThemeFootball season kicks off this week, making it the perfect time to share this creative event.  Melisa Imberman of The Event of a Lifetime planned a great bar mitzvah with a fresh take on a football theme. The party was inspired by a NY Giants tailgate. Nearly every aspect of the party was reminiscent of a tailgate from the décor to the food.

Personalized Bar Mitzvah Football Theme

The bar mitzvah was held at the Temple Beth-El of Northern Westchester.  The Event of a Lifetime did some really creative branding to transform the venue into a football tailgate party.  The Giants logo was converted to the bar mitzvah boy’s last name (Janis), the NY logo was changed to his initials (MJ), and luckily his name was Matthew so it was easy to change Metlife Stadium to Mattlife.

The party started with an entrance video. The last scene of the video was Matthew’s friends waving rally towels that said Mattlife. Matthew then ran into the room in his custom Giants shirt.Football Bar Mitzvah Rally Towels, Party Favors
