Hunter’s Vintage Sports Bar Mitzvah

by Natalie

Hunter’s Bar Mitzvah was one of a kind thanks to the inspiration of his very stylish and creative mother. She wanted his celebration to be boyish but modern, cozy, fun, and adult friendly without being over the top. She started by booking the modern and ecofriendly Greenhouse Loft venue then began her search for vintage sporting goods for her son’s party. She combed antique shops, EBay, Etsy, Jayson Home & Garden, and Chicago’s Randolph Street Market, coming up with some amazing vintage loot!

She came to us a couple of weeks before the event with loads of amazing props and asked that we bring the tables to life in an organic, rustic, fall meets vintage rugged sports, natural touch sort of way. She had already purchased these awesome striped linen runners and sweet napkins, hangtag table numbers, and had rented farm tables and custom-designed rustic chairs with linen seats created for her by one of our fabulous local rental companies, Tablescapes and we were excited by everything that she had put in motion.

Organizing unique props into artful displays is one of my greatest passions, and this event was no exception. I loved bringing my photo styling talents and photography together, creating and shooting every unique table and all the little vignettes that we assembled with the objects.

From hockey and baseball to skateboarding and tennis, Hunter’s mom chose an amazing array of interesting items. She even made this darling pennant banner which we strung from trophy’s on his table.

Fresh moss, orchids, berries, fern curls, succulents, and scabiosa pods meandered along the tables between the props with driftwood, manzanita branches, and fun textural arrangements in bark wrapped vases and candlelit mason jars and lanterns.

I would have been happy if it was MY birthday but we also got approval from Hunter and his mom along with everyone who came in oooing and aaaaing over the unique concept. We had a great time working with our friend Denise from Entertaining Company, who did an amazing job, and enjoyed meeting the day of planner, Rochelle Baker. Go Team!
