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 ......→

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 ......→
When it comes to hosting a wedding, bat & bar mitzvah or party, presentation is everything. Appetizers, cocktails and desserts can be easily forgotten. But you don’t need to serve the crème de la crème to make your food and drink choices memorable.

New York City has an eclectic and varied number of event spaces for Jewish weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, parties and corporate events. Our modern city is home to the hottest trend-setting architecture and fashion, so we were delighted to discover The Prince George Ballroom. Located in the FlatIron District in Manhattan and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Prince George Ballroom is a feast for the eyes with its Beaux Arts style and Neo-Renaissance flourishes.
