Top Interactive Games, High Tech Activities, and Virtual Reality
Who can resist playing a game that is beautifully lit up in neon colors – or doing something they’ve never done before, like skydiving or playing in a rock band? The entertainment options at bar & bat mitzvahs and teen parties are getting bigger (literally!) and better every day. It’s no surprise that, in addition to DJs and bands, more and more families are including interactive games and entertainment during their cocktail hours and receptions – all updated with the newest technology and trends. Guests young and old are loving it!
We’re excited to share the newest and hottest interactive entertainment and games!
Jane Sheinfeld, the visionary and founder of The Pieced Palette, sets out to create items – whether it is a gift, a piece of clothing or a party sign-in – that families can use on a daily basis. The personalized item will remain unique and meaningful to the family and honoree long after the bar/bat mitzvah or special event is over.
MEN’S NECKWEAR AND WOMEN’S PRINTED SCARVES
The Pieced Palette – Necktie & Coordinating Sign-In Pillow

So, you’re planning a wedding – Mazel Tov! While much of the focus is on the food, the décor, and the entertainment at the reception, the ceremony is at the heart of a beautiful wedding day so be sure to plan accordingly.
Candles are, of course, important for your ceremony as they’ll be incorporated into the procession. Dress your aisle up with a simple runner lined with lanterns filled with candles to give a welcoming glow. If there are steps at the end of the aisle, placing clusters of candles within vessels on each step can add a beautiful touch.
Some couples also have the honorees that walk them down the aisle carry candles to symbolize a joyful life. Be sure to have enough taper candles for each escort and perhaps a couple extra – just in case.
A unity candle can also be a touching addition to the ceremony, especially if it is an interfaith celebration. With one main pillar candle in the middle of the table, the newlyweds join together to light the unity candle with their individual tapers as a recognition of their newly joined lives.

We all need to be called something, we all have a name. When my son says to me, “that boy with long hair,” I always answer back, “that kid’s mom didn’t name him the boy with the long hair.” We all have a name. So, where do they come from? Sure, we can choose a name off the top 100 baby name list, but that isn’t all that is involved when you give someone an identity. History and thought goes into that name as well. READ MORE ......→
Whether you’re a jet-setting couple or a beach-loving teen, we are absolutely loving the idea of a beach theme for your wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party. You can showcase this theme in the hot summer months or in the winter – when if our feet can’t be in the sand, our heads and hearts certainly are! Using summertime decorations like sand, beach balls, starfish, and sea shells are all fun – not to mention inexpensive – ways to incorporate this theme. The traditional nautical color scheme of white and navy is popular, while including a bright pop of color such as coral or turquoise can really make your decor stand out.
Here are 10 ideas we’re loving for your beach theme!
Thanks to Joanna Greenfield of Ruby J Events for sharing another spectacular wedding venue transformation (view another example here).
Oftentimes the venue is booked way before there is a clear vision of the setting, decor or theme for the wedding or bar/bat mitzvah. Joanna Greenfield shared some of the key steps that Ruby J Events took to transform an urban hotel into the bride and groom’s Winter Wonderland. Witness this amazing transformation, and be sure to check out the video at the end!
According to Joanna, “the month of December is always a magical time of year. The air is crisp, the streets are lined with holiday lights, and the shops are filled with gifts for our loved ones. So when we have the opportunity to create a Winter Wonderland inspired wedding, we are fully on board!” READ MORE ......→
Zack celebrated his Bar Mitzvah in a modern, basketball-themed party that was as light-hearted as it was elegant. This New York celebration was a full weekend event, complete with a Kiddush, ceremony, and evening affair, and Chad David Kraus Photography captured every memory for us! READ MORE ......→
Now that the warm weather is almost here, we’re sure you’ll be attending, and maybe even hosting (!) some outdoor events! Here are 6 of our favorite inspirations for an al fresco wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah or any type of party!
1. Play Up The Venue
If you’d like at least part of your event to take place outside, a location with a beautiful and functional outdoor space is crucial. The Sands at Atlantic Beach (pictured above and below) is a premiere beach-front venue on Long Island, and a perfect option for your next outdoor event! While the interior of the space is gorgeous, you can also set up a tent on the beach. The only thing more fun than dancing is dancing barefoot on (or near) the sand! READ MORE ......→
