Not Just Weddings!

Irene Khin Wong

Summer is finally here and so is the wedding season. We do a lot of weddings in the summer but we also plan and cater many Bat/Bar Mitzvah and birthday parties as well. Last weekend, we did a Bat Mitzvah Party for the lovely Abigail Poteshman at Midtown Loft. The weather was perfect for an outdoor cocktail reception. Upon arrival, guests headed up to the rooftop to enjoy cocktails and Hors D’Oeuvres, then a buffet style lunch was served down on the main floor.

Abby's Friends

We were very lucky to have Mr. Dan Hurley, the creator of 60-Second Novelist join us to entertain the guests. Dan brought his own manual typewriter, mingled in the crowd and asked guests a few questions about their lives to get the sense of who they are. He would then make up an imaginative and funny short life story about the guest, typed it out so the guests could take it home. This is such a great way to get people to start up a conversation, share their amusing life stories and get to know each other better.

In a small corner, a red carpet photo booth was set up so that Abby and her friends could
spontaneously strike a pose for a special birthday photo shoot. The photos were printed immediately and framed right on the spot so that everyone could have a little souvenir to bring home from this special event. The DJ really knows their tastes in music and how to get the party started. After brunch, provided by Saffron 59, the teenagers got on the dance floor to shake off some calories. Two dancers were hired to join and spice up the party. They really did some amazing jobs getting people on the dance floor shaking some hips. 

Strike a Pose!

In lieu of birthday gifts, Abby generously had everyone bring a book to donate to a non-profit organization and write their well wishes or a short note on bookmarks to be placed in the books. Everyone had a really good time and at the end people seemed to get a hard time getting off the dance floor. The party ended on a happy note with trivia about Abby and raffle drawing. We hoped we had contributed to make Abby’s day special. Happy Birthday Abigail Poteshman!!!
