Turning 50? What better way to celebrate than a trip through the decades of your life with a Video DJ at the Port Theater in Corona Del Mar, which is exactly what Irene did. Party Planner Lisa Fogerty was most instrumental in fusing the foods and decor with the decades. TV dinners for the ’60s, fondue for the ’70s, Chinese chicken salad for the ’80s and so on.
We had the unique opportunity to entertain for the Kushnir families LA Bar Mitzvah at the 94th Aero Squadron. The 94th Aero Squadron is a very unique location, and if you’ve never seen it, it resembles an old bombed out Chateau from Europe during the WWI era. We lit one of those bombed out looking rooms with red up-lights giving the room a dramatic feel. The guests all ate inside, but we had all of the entertainment, (DJ, Video Screens and Photo Booth) outside.
As you watch the video you can see everyone dancing the Hora around the fire pit. The video shows two examples of games being played. The 2 person tug-o-war is a game we don’t play a lot but boy is it a hit with everyone. At the end of the video, you will see the family testimonial and you will get too see Bruno’s Pharrell inspired hat; I can’t wait till he’s in his 30’s and looks back at that hat :).
It was a pleasure working with everyone, the Kushnir Family and Bruno our Mitzvah star. It was also easy working with Karen & Emily our 94th Staff Banquet Managers. Finally, I want to thank DJ Brian Pierce and our dancer Lori and our super friendly Photo Booth girl Sarah.
