Brett’s Bar Mitzvah – Congregation B’nai Shalom, Westborough + The Verve, Natick

Brett became a Bar Mitzvah at Congregation B’nai Shalom in Westborough this past June. Immediately following the service was a Kiddush where friends and family could celebrate Brett’s accomplishment.  But, the party really got rolling that evening at The Verve in Natick.

Brett didn’t want a “theme” so we went with more a of “look and vibe” for his party decor. Royal blue, black and silver were the foundation to his party…because you have to start somewhere!  When it came to the “look and vibe” we went for an urban feel.  The graffiti logo was used on the brick wall, video screens and cupcakes.  For the other decor, we brought in metals with a diamond plate DJ booth and table numbers, metallic lit centerpieces and metal stools at the kids triangular high top  tables.  Adults were served dinner tableside, while Brett and his friends had a fun kids buffet with open seating.

The party started with Brett’s super high energy entrance, through an arm-tunnel of friends and family to the song “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody”.  This perfectly describes his fun-loving and silly nature! A few party games were followed by a blessing by Brett’s three grandfathers and a traditional candle-lighting ceremony. Then the dance floor opened up for a set with the DJ and all of Brett’s friends and family joined him to boogey, shake and congratulate the man of the hour.

Nearing the end of the night, everyone quickly joined in the hora as Brett, his siblings, and parents got lifted in the chair.  Then came the late-night treats; cupcakes and an ice cream sundae bar so everyone could pick out which sweet suited them best. With dessert in hand, we took the opportunity to slow things down a bit for a beautiful, heartfelt speech from Brett’s mom and a sweet introduction into an adorable video montage with photos and video clips.  More dancing and celebrating followed.  One thing is for sure, Brett’s energy and fun-loving nature was contagious and it was clear that everyone enjoyed celebrating with him!   It was an honor to be part of another Harmon Family event.  Mazel Tov, Brett!

A few words from Melanie:

This was our second time using Michelle for a Bar Mitzvah, and we wouldn’t use anyone else! Michelle is so attentive to detail, she really did so much work all along the way…resulting in a calm hostess and a smooth event. Michelle does her research and finds what is right for the client’s taste and budget. She makes planning a big event “easy!”  Can’t wait to work with her on #3 in a few years!
