B'nai Mitzvah

LW Events partnered with a local family to plan a fantastic b'nai mitzvah with a summer camp theme. Highline Car House served as a dramatic backdrop providing rustic elements, and Two Caterers filled the canoe with delicious hors d'oeuvres. The kids had fun playing "camp games" while the adults enjoyed a 3-course lunch to celebrate this momentous occasion. The day would not have been complete without campfire cupcakes for the kids, and roasted marshmallow pot du creme for the adults.
