The Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) is filled with over 30 fun, interactive exhibits, and it was the perfect venue for Ben’s bar mitzvah. We used two floors so we could mix up the vibe from the bar mitzvah ceremony to the cocktail hour and dancing.
An expert lighting crew, Kayne Live, was hired to help create the right ambiance, and they were an awesome addition to the event team! They really transformed one of the MoMath’s classroom areas into a cozy, intimate location for the bar mitzvah ceremony.
Nontraditional, led by Shira & Etan of Storahtelling, the ceremony was just what the family wanted: creative and intimate. Shira led the ceremony with her gorgeous voice, and Etan, who had worked privately with Ben for a year to prepare him, led the storahtelling. It was one of the most touching bar mitzvah ceremonies I have seen!
Planning and coordinating details for the reception was a blast. The dance floor was too cool: on top of a math square, it was lit up with different colors and patterns all night.
And the food was just as exciting as the dance floor. Casual stations with different themes were catered by Radish and scattered throughout the museum – an Asian station with edamame cones, citrus ceviche with candied ginger, a taco and slider station, and market salad station were all great hits with the guests. To top things off Radish staff passed around mini-desserts like milk & cookies and coconut quinoa puddings.
For an extra special treat, we had NYC’s popular Wafels & Dinges crew there to serve their famous waffles. It was a big hit with the kids and the adults! All in all, the catering was perfection!!
I was on hand at the event to keep everyone on task with deliveries and set up, and throughout the night, the hosts and other vendors looked to me for cues and assistance. Being there to diffuse last minute situations and keep the night flowing is always a thrill – I love knowing my behind-the-scenes planning makes sure all the guests have a great time and that the family has it to remember as one of their most special days.
