This week San Francisco is abuzz celebrating the Giants World Series victory. On Halloween, fans will fill the streets for a ticker tape parade honoring their 2012 World Champions. I'm sure one of our clients, Ashton, will stake out a front row seat for the festivities. Earlier this year Ashton (a huge Giant's fan) had the most amazing Bar Mitzvah celebration at AT&T park planned by Laurie Arons Special Events. It was a once in a lifetime experience for the lucky attendees. The night began with cocktails in the dugout and locker room. The kids were able to swing a bat in the actual batting cages that their favorite players use during games. The celebration continued with dinner, activities and dancing in the club level of the park. It was a night people are still talking about and few will forget the celebration.

Because the save the dates were such a hit, it set the bar high for the invitation. One of the luckiest things was that Ashton's initials are AF, so I was able to modify the SF Giants logo. The AF logo was used throughout the celebration and worked well with the theme. The invitation was printed on a real baseball. The baseball invited people to the party at AT&T park. We had an separate card on top of the box inviting guests to the Bar Mitzvah service. The baseball theme was continued in the RSVP and information card. After receiving the invitation, people could not wait to see what was in store for them at the ball park and I'm sure no one was disappointed.

One of my favorite details at the party was the escorts used for the adult dinner seating. Each of the tables were named for a beloved Giants player and the the guests were given baseball trading cards for the player that corresponded with their table.

Of course this celebration would not be complete without a dessert table, in fact we did two different tables. One was filled with baseball themed desserts, the centerpiece was a cake replica of the World Championship Trophy, created by Katrina Roselle. Who knew the Giants would be getting another trophy this year? The other, filled with candy, was a big hit with the kids.

These were only a few of the things that Laurie Arons Special Events had in store for guests. Here is a link to Laurie's blog post of this event. It's safe to say the guests had as much fun as we did working on this event!
