Jake Me Out to the Ball Game: A Base-ketball Bar Mitzvah


What better way to celebrate a young man’s coming of age than to combine his two favorite sports,
basketball and baseball into one heck of a party! Welcome to Dunkin’ Donuts Park in Hartford
where we are Jake-ing out the ball game with a truly wonderful family.


Jake Me Out to the Ballgame: A base-ketball-themed Bar Mitzvah.


This party was so much fun and had something for everyone, regardless of age. Jake’s young adult
friends took their spot in the “dugout” — a super cool hangout which felt very much like a
nightclub inside a baseball stadium, which is essentially what it was!

The card box greeted guests as they arrived showing off the guest of honor’s name in a font style
that matched perfectly with all the other design elements on display throughout the venue.


Guests were encouraged to leave a message on this wonderfully designed sign-in board with
Jake’s number on a jersey from his favorite sport, basketball

“Dugout” furniture was adorned with accessories that included the great logo, designed to set
the tone for the great night ahead.

It’s not quite peanuts and cracker jacks, but the popcorn and bubble gum accentuated the
cocktail tables and further complemented the party’s theme.

Just to hammer home the theme a little further, there were multiple centerpieces on display.
In fact, there were one…

An amazing time was had by all as Jake and all his friends and family danced up a storm
on the wonderfully glammed up stage from Boppers Events.

As the young adults left they were given warm and cozy sweatshirts to wear on a cold night
at the ballpark.

It is the rare party indeed where we can say we hit a grand slam and had a slam dunk at the
same time! Mazel Tov Jake and family.

When a teen girl is really into pop, then why not go all out with an upbeat musical theme to celebrate
her Bat Mitzvah? This is Rachel’s party, complete with all the musical fixins, minus the groupies.

The tables for cocktail hour were adorned with centerpieces made of sheet music in the shape
of roses.

While the adults were enjoying cocktail hour the younger set was entertained by Boppers Events
with various parlor games, including strike-a-light.


Upon arrival at the Golf Club of Avon guests knew right away they were in for a wonderful musical
adventure with the Bat Mitzvah girl right at center stage.

Young adults received “Backstage passes” to their assigned tables, based on the guest of honor’s
favorite pop artists.


While the more mature crowd got front row tickets to sit with some very hot musicians from
various decades.

There was an appearance by the Queen of the modern day ballad:

And, of course, the King of Pop himself:

Overall, it was a thriller of a night with the light up centerpieces and the colorful stage creating an
event venue befitting any pop sensation.

The star of the show was everywhere, even centered between two great light-up CD collections
(created by the family) on the hall’s mantlepiece.
