The Jet’s Set

by ROP

The design of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah requires the same attention to detail and precision as a wedding or any other major life event however, the process of arriving to that final ah ha moment is a heck of a lot more fun!  Even more so when working with the State of the Art team.

You might be tempted to say that sports is not generally the forte’ of an event designer and you’d be right!  However, in this case thankfully, no one is asking us to dribble a basketball or explain the intricacies of baseball.  What we’re asked to do instead is to create an explosive visual interpretation of the theme; in this particular case it was football.  Unlike the expert fan who might notice a sweet passing play we see the patterns on the field, the stripes on a referee’s t-shirt, the colors of the flags, the way the thousands of spectators create one giant painting of color and shape against a blue cloudy sky.  It’s these observations that help to bring the vision to fruition.

And this time we went literal…with a vintage twist.  From the squares of raw grass holding friendly little sports gnomes to the repetition of stripes on the table linens, pillows and again in larger than life format on our incredible custom designed dance floor to the sports signage on tailored made chalkboards to the hand painted bars and beyond.

We’ll let the photos do the talking for us…
