September 23rd, 2016

Want to plan an incredible Bar or Bat Mitzvah? We’ve rounded up advice on how to make your event memorable, unique and fun for all of the kids. Over the weekend, we were inspired at our BESA Boogie event. So many amazing vendors and awesome companies came together to put on a fabulous mock Bar Mitzvah.

1. Select a Location / Venue

Think about the how many people you’re expecting, the style you’re going for, and the convenience of the location to the synagogue. These are all important factors to assess when choosing the perfect place to host your event.

2. Choose A Theme or Style of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah

This is one of the most important elements. When thinking about planning such a simcha, we believe it’s important to think about the theme or style of the event. Does the Bar or Bat Mitzvah have any special interests, hobbies, or movie/ TV show that they love? You want the theme and style to align with the specific interests of the Bar or Bat Mitzvah to showcase their love for whatever it may be. This Bar Mitzvah below showcased his love for skateboarding and his passion for the arts by using our Graffiti Skateboard backdrop. We have thousands of backdrops in so many different scenes and themes that are perfect to bring your theme to life!

3. Book your Vendors

Research is key to book your vendors. Find the right photographers and videographers to capture your special moment. Decide if you need a Florist or Event Planner depending on the size of your event. Decorate your venue with beautiful backdrops that will transform your space into an extravagant themed event! A live band or a DJ is perfect if you’re looking to entertain a dancing crowd. Looking to go above and beyond? Look into caricaturists,magicians, live artists, or a speciality food vendor! The options are truly endless.

3. Rent (or buy) your décor

Decide on the décor elements you want to use for your event. Will you use them again? If the answer is no, we definitely recommend to rent your decor items. Trying to convey a theme for your Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Renting a hand-painted backdrop is an effortless way to transform your space into whatever you desire.

The Under the Sea theme was perfect as the NACE Experience Gala was held at the Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, Florida. This resort is on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean with many of the rooms overlooking the expansive, beautiful ocean. It’s an oasis that instantly makes you feel like you’re on vacation. With the ocean so close, the Under the Sea theme couldn’t be more appropriate. This was such a fabulous night and such an incredible event.

Backdrops at BizBash Florida 2016

Last month we had the pleasure of exhibiting at BizBash Florida in Fort Lauderdale. We were so excited to travel to Florida to connect with attendees and other exhibitors. We showcased our gorgeous Garden Gazebo backdrop. This backdrop was painted side by side with our Garden Fountain backdrop. We had such fun connecting with event professionals. We talked all things events – décor, design, planning, & much more. We love discussing unique concepts and developing transformative design ideas to impact future events.

Backdrops at BizBash Florida 2016

This backdrop was a product of our Custom Rental Service. This service gives you the creativity and ability to Create your Own backdrop to rent! We worked with an Event Planner to develop the concept of two 10′ x 10′ backdrops painted side by side. This makes a beautiful 20′ x 10′ garden scene with the ability to use these backdrops in different ways. You can use them next to each other or in different places at the same event. This can create a cohesive, beautiful look at your next event!

There are so many reasons we love exhibiting at BizBash. One of them is connecting with other amazing exhibitors and our esteemed partners. Quest Drape is an absolutely fabulous company and they provided us with our pipe and base. Pipe and base rental is key when renting a backdrop and Quest Drape has locations nationwide to do so! Quest Drape makes it as easy as possible. They deliver pipe and base directly to the doorstep of your event. It’s so easy to use their pipe and base to effortlessly hang our backdrops! Our backdrops come with grommets along the top and ties to easily fasten the backdrop to the pipe. Our backdrops also have pole pockets along the bottom to easily weigh down the backdrop to minimize wrinkles! We’re already looking forward to the next BizBash in Los Angeles!

Last week we were in Las Vegas for the Catersource / Event Solutions Conference & Tradeshow! We had such an amazing time meeting so many new catering professionals, continuing our relationships with awesome exhibitors, and being involved in many of the exciting events.

Catersource - Street Market 2

We decided to create a different look this year with the set up of our backdrops. We’re always innovating, thinking of different ways to present our product to best fit your future events. We created two corners of our booth, both adorned with backdrops on each side. On one side we had a vibrant, energetic Moroccan Street Market, which you can see above. The goal of this set up was to educate the attendees on how backdrops can effortlessly bring the type of food you’re serving to life.

Catersource 2016 - Italian Street Scene 7

In the other corner, we showcased our Italian Street Scene backdrop that could easily enhance any Italian-inspired serving station. We love that caterers have serious input in the way their food is featured to ensure the best presentation possible. We all know that we first eat with our eyes and this is an easy way to leave a lasting impression.

Catersource 2016 - Coral Kingdom backdrop

On the outside of our booth, we featured our Coral Kingdom backdrop perfect for a fun play on serving seafood. We partnered with the lovely Air Dimensional Design (AirDD) to enhance our booth with their amazing inflatables by showcasing their large purple sprout and fun mini light centerpieces.

We were so excited to be a part of so many events during the Catersource Conference and Expo in Vegas. Our Havana Streets backdrops enhanced the CORT Welcome Reception at The Mirage Resort & Casino. The lounge was impeccably decorated. We were so happy to see how the amazing event designers utilized our backdrops. There were so many fabulous partners and sponsors that made this lounge a success. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it.

The Monday Night Party, 5 @ TAO, was an incredible display of delicious and delectable food, awesome menu presentations, and an exciting atmosphere.
