You will not believe this transformation! When you have a dad with a fabulous collection of classic cars and a son with a passion for film making, you’ve got the beginnings of one amazing bar mitzvah! Father and son put their heads together and came up with a movie premiere-themed bar mitzvah that oozed with real-deal Hollywood glamour.
Event planner Melisa from The Event of a Lifetime was called in to transform the clients’ garage and basement into their vision of a Hollywood event. She had plenty to work with – including a 5 million dollar vintage classic car. Even the most utilitarian space can be converted to a dazzling affair in the hands of the right event designer.
Before: This garage was, well… just a garage
After: Trendy VIP Bar Mitzvah Lounge
Now this garage is a lounge the likes of a sophisticated night spot. The plain walls are hidden behind a soft white pipe and drape with cool, blue-green uplighting. Satin lounges are accented with plush pillows. The pillows are customized with the bar mitvah’s initials and event date. Blue, white and silver is the perfect color palette for this VIP lounge.
