Guests knew ahead of time the fun they were bound to have at Miss Allessandra’s Bat Mitzvah at Hampton Hall even before the big day arrived. Invitations were delivered inside ornate Tiffany-blue boxes, the chevron-patterned paper tied with ribbon and a delicate starfish charm. The ocean theme carried over to Allessandra’s big day with elegant, organic tones of her beloved ocean-side home scattered throughout. Guests entered to enjoy a cocktail hour with signature drinks for the adults and mocktails for the kids. Tunes by the DJ, Sir Andrew of Other Brother Entertainment, and dancers appeared to sweep everyone onto the dance floor, complete with a starfish logo with Allessandra’s initials. A meal of filet mignon and crab cakes was served to the adults, barbeque and sliders to the kids. But the fun was all in the details for this event, from the escort cards tied to seashells, to a boardwalk style activity room complete with an airbrush t-shirt artist, a kettle corn station, and a photo booth. Oh, and Allessandra’s favorite part? The sweets room of course, filled to the brim with all kinds of colorful confections! This wave of fun is brought to you by Landon Jacob Productions!
Was there a specific theme or style?
The theme was a beach theme with the muted colors you associate with the beach. We are surrounded by nature and the water. Allessandra has always loved nature and the beach and wanted that same understated beauty as her theme.
What was the most memorable moment?
We kept the sweets room a secret and closed off until there was an announcement made by the DJ that there was a sweets room and it was now open. The reaction by everyone was priceless. I think everyone at the party were in the room at the same time expressing there amazement. We wanted this room to be kids (and some adults) version of heaven. We have since heard from guests that the whole party was outstanding and one they will always remember.
What kind of energy did your entertainment give the event?
The energy of the entertainment and the whole night was full on. They really got the kids (and adults) dancing. They also played the traditional Hava Nagila and everyone did the Hora.
