This was such a great party! I loved creating all the different elements of decor and used them to
highlight the bar mitzvah boy’s love of the sport of skiing.
I was lucky to have had a handy and creative family to help with making many of the decor pieces
that were prominently displayed at the party. One of my favorites was this fantastic chair made out
of skis that were used as the sign-in board.
The first thing I thought would be helpful in creating this Ski Themed Party was a logo. We were
lucky to have come up with two fantastic ones that were in shades of orange and gray, colors of
the guest of honor’s sleepover camp. One version was an image of a skier:
The second logo had letters that looked like they were topped with snow and the shape of the logo
mimicked the logo of the families favorite ski resort destination in Vermont. This logo on display
throughout the party.
The use of birch wood was brought in as another decor element. It made for a perfect base for
the succulents on the cocktail tables.
Birch was also a prominent feature as it was used wrapped in fairy lights as part of all of the
centerpieces on all the guest tables,
And as place card holders.
The place card table had the most fantastic large photo backdrop of the Bar Mitzvah boy skiing.
This was one of the first things guests saw as they entered the party. Each place card had the
name of a different ski hill that the family enjoyed.
These centerpieces were one of my favorites to make. On the top was the name of a ski hill from
a Vermont ski resort,
and old ski boots served as the base.
Delicious food was catered by Russell’s Catering and was enjoyed by all.
Boppers Events keep the guests entertained throughout the night with music and dancing…
And with various games set up around the venue.
Also, there were two special corn hole games made for the party with each displaying a version
of the logo.
I had a “Step and Repeat” backdrop made especially for the occasion with one version of the logo.
This was used as the photo station. The very talented father of the bar mitzvah boy created a
three-level podium for guests to stand mimicking a medals stand.
In the same type of font as the logo with the snow-capped letters there was a box for the kippot,
A box for cards,
And a bin to keep socks for the ladies in the room, big and small, to use when their feet got a little
sore from dancing the night away.
As the young adults left the party they were given these great shirts, with the logo, to have as a
keepsake of the special day.
