Skateboarding is definitely a favorite activity for many here in Southern California. You can find skate parks almost everywhere…and if not kids will make their own! Our client Salo is a fan of the sport so it was the perfect theme for his bar mitzvah celebration.
When it came to styling the tables we decided florals (even though we love them) didn’t belong. This party was all about giving our 13 year old client something exactly in his wheelhouse…something he could relate to and get excited about.
We wanted to paint a typical skating scene: back alley with empty crates, graffiti everywhere, even a wire basket that looked like a trash can which we filled with shredded paper and skateboard wheels! The kids were mesmerized by the skateboard decks, which were even gifted at the end of the party! We had a graphic designer custom make logos that looked like the popular skate brand, Vans, but with our clients name and event imbedded in.
We also styled a dessert table and a Mexican treat table. The dessert table had modern acrylic risers packed high with mini donuts and then a truly amazing custom cake which fit the theme perfectly. The Mexican “junk bar” had clear glass containers filled with spicy chips, dried fruit covered in chili and some favorite Mexican candy. The labels were custom made to go with the black and white checkered design throughout the theme and we even used Vans shoe boxes to give the jars some height and dimension. And did you notice the cake on this table? It’s basically a savory cake version of all the snacks you see at this bar!
We loved hearing the ooohhhs and awwws from all the young teens there that night! We should definitely be your go to styling team for your next bar/bat mitzvah!
