Yankees Baseball Themed Bar Mitzvah at Coors Field
I have the coolest Yankees baseball themed bar mitzvah to share on the journal today! Brooks and his family just held the most wonderful celebration at Coors Field for his bar mitzvah here in Denver, Colorado. We joked that the Royal Wedding seemed to steal his thunder a little bit by trading our nice, normally sunshine-filled, weather with Great Britain’s gloomy rainy weather. But we somehow still managed to do the family portraits outside in a moderately dry area under a tree so it wasn’t too difficult and we got nice photos despite the wet weather.
Bar Mitzvah Service at B’Nai Chaim
The bar mitzvah service took place at B’Nai Chaim Synagogue in Morrison and Brooks’s family came from all over to celebrate with him. His dad is originally from New York while his mom grew up right here in Colorado.
Later on at Coors Field, one of the gentlemen working the party noticed what big Yankees fans this family was (it’s pretty obvious once you see the way the party was decorated!) and showed them the place where they keep the Rockies logo wrapped Statue of Liberty gift that the Yankees gave to the team. It was a perfect statue photo opportunity for this Colorado grown family with ties to the Big Apple.
Baseball Decor for a Colorado Bar Mitzvah
And speaking of New York, the reception party décor was incredible! There were Yankees themed tables named after the greatest players, blue and white stripes everywhere and of course popcorn. My favorite part was the New York Street scene their party planner had set up as a lounge area. Even hosting the party right there at Rockies Coors Field was the perfect venue for a baseball-loving teenager celebrating his bar mitzvah birthday party. Brooks has been playing baseball since he was 5 years old and it was an added perk to see photos of him playing his favorite sport right up on the Rockies marquee lit up over the field.
Candle Lighting Ceremony at a Colorado Coors Field Bar Mitzvah Party
Brooks did a wonderful job with his candle lighting poem which is always my favorite part of a bar mitzvah since it is a nice sentimental acknowledgement of loved ones. He had everyone laughing and even crying when he gave a special shout out to his cousin who couldn’t make it due to serving in the army. The guests spent the rest of the party eating, drinking, and playing all of the fun games set up throughout the huge reception space The batting cage and the air hockey table seemed to be the biggest hits. Eventually everyone made their way over to the dance floor to party down. Us adults laughed when at one point the dance floor evolved into an air guitar rumble with 13 year olds attempting to beat each other with inflatable guitars. It was exactly what you would imagine a party for a 13 year old would look like; super fun and rambunctious!
Mazel Tov, Brooks!
Love this one:)
