Charlie’s Bar Mitzvah

I love planning weddings but I also love the opportunity to do something fun and different!  Charlie turned 13 this May and his mother hired La Fete to plan his Bar Mitzvah at the Umstead Hotel.  Charlie, a fun loving sports enthusiast, was also a huge NCSU fan.  His only request was that we didn’t have everything black and red, which was easy enough!  We chose a few key elements to play up the NCSU theme but left the rest of the decor neutral and masculine (ie, green and navy).  We had Sugarland Bakery design an enormous 3-D NCSU wolf cake as a focal point for the ballroom.  It was a huge hit among the kids!  We also had a poster made with a custom NCSU wolf illustration so everyone could sign and Charlie could then frame and hang in his room as a momento.  As a nod to Charlie’s favorite sport, the favors for the night were baseballs!  We hope you enjoy the images captured by Neil Boyd Photography.
