A Bat Mitzvah celebration in space

We were tasked with creating a futuristic Bat Mitzvah to remember...

Event brief

Our client had a clear vision for their event quite simply… THE FUTURE! Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties are a fantastic family celebration and this particular event was all about celebrating one young lady and the future ahead of her! The Bat Mitzvah girl wasn’t your typical girly girl but our client wanted to ensure her femininity was injected into the theme of the event.

Delivering the brief

What better way to celebrate someone’s future then go all futuristic and into space! A space theme was agreed so we went to work on bringing the client’s dream event to life.

A successful event is always down to team work – the suppliers you work with is such an important decision! This Bat Mitzvah needed to be Kosher Friendly, so we worked with the amazing Food by Dish who provided the catering for the party. Socialising, dancing and having fun is key so we ensured this was kept at the forefront of our minds when choosing menus. To ensure there was ample time on the dancefloor we decided on food stalls in the drinks reception where guests could help themselves to starters – this included a sushi belt and a stall dedicated to Israeli cuisine. Having food served straight away, and ensuring it’s interactive, helps to keep the younger guests entertained!

Guests were transported to space from the moment they arrived with amazing lighting by Dragon AV, using pinks, purples and bespoke gobos. Guests were greeted by out-of-space characters; some on stilts wandering the room as if they’d just arrived on Mars and others performing out-of-this-world tricks! Attention to detail is key with a themed event, so even the waiting staff got involved and wore glittery foil wigs to get in the futuristic spirit! Our special guest’s favourite music was played whilst guests sipped their space-themed cocktails (and mocktails for the little ones!), enjoyed delicious food and entertainment, and mingled with friends and family.

After an hour’s drinks reception, guests were invited to the ballroom where their journey in space continued with themed lighting and logos, tables with sparkly silver linen and purple napkins, and futuristic glass and mirror ball table centres. The Bat Mitzvah girl had a special entrance to the room, dancing in to her favourite song accompanied by professional dancers and space characters on stilts! All the children were seated together on one long table and the adults were seated on round tables.. Food by Dish served a scrumptious seabass main course and for dessert the adults were served a plated dish, with an interactive knickerbocker glory station available for the kids! This went down a storm and the kids and adults alike LOVED it!

Outcome

After dessert and once all speeches had come to an end, the dancefloor was full until the very last song thanks to DJ Live and his team. There were performers on stage and mingling with guests all night, including a human sweet table donned in an LED dress! The family had a night to remember forever, and guests left knowing they’d been transported to space for one night only to celebrate a very special occasion… A successful themed event in the bag!
