It’s no secret that we love a good theme and there are few better ways to creatively explore a themed event than a Mitzvah. It’s even better when the chosen theme is so perfectly curated for the guest-of-honor’s interests. We chose to host Palmer’s Bar Mitzvah at the Intercontinental, Downtown Los Angeles, because of its unique modern architectural details and its impressive contribution to the Downtown LA skyline.

For an impactful guest entrance, we created a custom geometric tunnel entrance and piped in the music from Disneyland’s famed Space Mountain ride.

Guests found their seating assignments at an oversized version of the Periodic Table of Elements, aptly re-named after Palmer.

The stage was grounded by an interactive LED wall, where guests could interact with their own avatars as they danced on a liquid dance floor.

The decor and styling featured test tubes and beakers.

A backbar inspired by Newton’s cradle featured exposed truss and disco balls.

Servers donned white lab coats and protective eye gear to bring the theme to life.

Modern seating vignettes with vinyl embellishments designed around the constellations donned each table.

While the food and bar menus were modeled after the elements.

Floating shelves featured science-themed craft cocktails.

The kids’ lounge featured cell-shaped ottomans and angular banquettes.

Planet-themed desserts and cake pops rounded out the evening!
