Bar Mitzvah for a Sports Fan

Cooper had his Bar Mitzvah with us recently and he had some very creative decorations! He is a huge sports fan so he incorporated that into almost every aspect of his celebration. 

His seating arrangements were actually gameday tickets! The guests each got their own and it told them where to find their seats, just like at the game!


He also had a bunch of flags around the room of some of his favorite teams, here are a couple…



For his guest signing book he made a football position chart!


Now for the menu! The adults got to enjoy a cocktail hour full of Wine, Cheese, Smoked Fish, and a Pasta station. But that is not all! They also got to have some chafing dishes filled with Chicken Enchiladas, Eggplant Rollatini and Grilled Thai Chicken with Lemongrass! 

Oh and we can’t forget the SUSHI DISPLAY!

As for the kids they got a special game day menu for their cocktail hour. It included Hamburger Sliders, Hot Dog Sliders, Chicken Fingers, and Pretzels! What a perfect combination to go with Cooper’s theme. 

What is for dinner you ask? Well, the adults get a beautiful sit down dinner with an appetizer of Braised Beef Short Rib on Polenta Cake and a freshly made Garden Salad. Then their dinner choices were between Strip Loin with Frittes, Herb Crusted Chicken with Sweet Potato, and Sesame Seared Salmon. 

As for the kids they got to have their very own buffet! On the buffet they had Chicken Parm, Penne Vodka, French Fries and a Tossed Salad. 

What’s for dessert?

Cooper had an awesome Gators cake made for him that looks just like a life size Team Logo!


Congratulations Cooper on your Bar Mitzvah from all of us here at Patriot Hills!!

A Bat Mitzvah Wonderland

Last weekend The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills was transformed into Wonderland for a fun Alice in Wonderland Bat Mitzvah. Guests entered the ballroom with a key themed place card. Centerpieces were representations of the story characters – from Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb to Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts and Alice herself. There were beautiful beverage bottles with “Drink Me” tags and fun candy favors that said “Eat Me”.
