A New York Rangers Themed Bar Mitzvah at The Umstead!

Wow! What a fun celebration to be a part of!

This is our second Bar Mitzvah we planned for the family and it was so cool to go through the creative process and come up with this awesome theme! The family is originally from New York and are huge Rangers fans, so naturally we made The Umstead look like a hockey game in Madison Square Garden!

The dance floor was the ice rink complete with a personalized logo, hockey nets, Penalty Box & Vip sections made out of plexiglass walls, and even a giant jumbotron. The Umstead provided concession stand snacks for the kids, milkshakes (both adult and regular) served in personalized stadium cups, and more amazing spreads! One of our favorite decor items was the escort card display, which was a giant Rangers player ice sculpture with hockey puck escort cards surrounding him!

To get the party started Fusion, the band accompaniment to Spin DJ, played some amazing fun music next to video screens and Elevate provided Rangers Girls to get everyone on the dance floor.
