Sports themed bar mitzvah parties are very popular and I do many of them but I try my darnedest
to make each event look and feel different. My latest was an NBA Draft Themed party.
As soon as guests arrived they were greeted by a large sign announcing that this was an NBA Draft
“presented by Noah” (the Bar Mitzvah boy).
Guests picked up their mini basketball jersey place cards as they arrived. Each card featured
a guest’s name and the team they had been “drafted by”. That team was their assigned table
and the jerseys, while maybe a little tight to play in, made for a nice keepsake.
As the guests made their way into the party there was a gift box for envelopes and a table to
put gifts. This box sported a great logo designed by Digital Design Chick and the logo was used
on various decor throughout the party.
The sign-in board also looked like a jersey where guests could leave a message for the man of honor.
This sign-in board went perfectly with the theme of the NBA Draft.
During the first hour of the party the adults took in the beautiful view from the deck of the
Golf Club of Avon while enjoying a cocktail and some hors d’oeuvres.
The kids jumped right to it by grabbing some socks, designed to look like converse running
shoes displayed in a basket-ball hoop. They started dancing and playing games with the
fantastic team from Bopper’s Events.
There was a Step-and-Repeat sign just like you would have at a movie opening or an important
sporting event, again displaying the logo. This was the perfect spot for guests to get their photo
taken and help provide a lasting memory of the great night.
Each table was a different NBA team and guests were seated according to the team that
Cute mini spalding basketballs and star confetti were scattered around the tables adding a little
pizzazz and sparkle to the decor.
As Noah’s friends left the fun filled party they got a great long sleeve shirt as a lasting memory.
It was a great night and everyone had a blast. Mazel Tov Noah!
