Day 2 of Luis' Bar Mitzvah is here!

When I asked Sandra to describe her son, she said two words: sports and dancing. I totally understood the sports part, but I honestly have never met a 13 year old boy who can cut it up on the dancefloor like Luis. Honestly, I want lessons! And then Sandra showed me the YouTube video invitation in which he RAPS in HEBREW the details for his party, all in front of the backdrop of Target Field and downtown Minneapolis. I couldn't wait to celebrate and party with Luis! 

Imagine a stunning sports-themed party coordinated by the fabulous ladies over at Amy Zaroff Events + Design, salsa music and teen pop songs all mixed by Level 11 and set all of that into the gorgeous space at Oak Ridge Country Club. Seriously, this was a party not to be missed. I can't decide which part I loved more (the ice cream! the lights! the props!) and after that night, I put "name spelled out in gold balloons" on my bucket list. 

Best part? The look on Luis' face when, in the middle of his slideshow, Joe Mauer himself gave Luis a special "mazel tov!" It was an amazing moment and I loved watching how happy Sandra was when the surprise was finally revealed!

The final event of the weekend was a brunch held at the Fele home. Luis himself had to leave the party early to WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP basketball game with his team - the guy never stops! Despite all the snow we got that morning, cars filled with family members pulled up in droves. Instantly, the house was filled with laughter and warmth AND more amazing food - the breakfast burritos! The chilaquiles! The bourbon french toast! Upon leaving the brunch, Isaac and Sandra even sent me home with leftovers! I'm still drooling over that - I could get used to this :) 

My friend Luis came along to the party to do a video for the Fele family and he did not disappoint. I loved reliving the night through this VIDEO
