Other than working in tents, there’s nothing like finding a large empty room to serve as the blank canvas for a modern metal and red bar mitzvah.  In this case, the blank canvas was a traditional Jewish synagogue in the Main Line suburbs located just outside of Philadelphia.  [Photos: Michele Corbman]

We’re very lucky to produce bar and bat mitzvahs for families with more than one child.  Several years ago the same synagogue was awash in turquoise blue, aqua lighting and coral flowers for a “Cabo” inspired bat mitzvah for this young boy’s sister.  That soft, beachy theme was not going to fly for David!  Oh no, this kid wanted an edgy, urban, modern restaurant environment!  We layered clear chairs, stemware and chargers with metal-topped tables on light up lucite boxes placed against gray drapery.  In came the red flowers in the simple lush centerpieces and BANG! went the party drum!  Although we used roses {the come in such dazzling reds, how couldn’t we?} it was the orchids, anthurium, dahlias and mini calla lilies that gave us the vibrant color layers we needed to convery real RED.  Adding red candles, dramatic blue and red lighting effects, hazing smoke and cool contemporary logo’d signage throughout gave David the room he was waiting for!  Mazel Tov!
