Kotzin Bar Mitzvah
April 6, 2009 by admin | comments
From the moment Evan Jon Kotzin stepped foot onto the Bimah until the clock struck midnight at his Philadelphia-themed bash, he was in the spotlight and loving every minute of his bar mitzvah weekend. Puff ‘n Stuff was able to be a part of his special weekend by catering three separate events for the family. The family was in very capable hands with Special Event Planner Shira Smith.

First was the Friday night dinner at the Kotzin residence for close family and friends. We set up a buffet of Chicken Marsala, Israeli Salad, Penne aglio e olio, Israeli Couscous and Broccolini followed by a beautiful assortment of our Little Luxuries for dessert. We also provided the linens and centerpieces for each table consisting providing an elegant, yet festive atmosphere.

The next day, following Evan’s perfect reading from the Torah, was the Kiddush luncheon at Temple Ohev Shalom, also catered by Puff ‘n Stuff. This was a new and exciting endeavor for us and we’d like to thank Ohev, especially Phil Wolgel and Sindi Ackman for allowing us to cater Evan’s Kiddush. Guests enjoyed traditional Jewish fare including a delicious sweet kugel that everyone raved about.

That night was the big celebration event at the Orlando Museum of Art. To represent the Philadelphia theme our logistics manager, Scott, created a 13-foot “Skyscraper Hors d’Oeuvre Buffet” that consisted of our Mediterranean sampler, imported and domestic cheeses, oak grilled vegetables and even a cheese wheel with the skyline of Philadelphia carved into it.

The supervisor of the event, Jeremy, created a Hoagie Shop for the kids buffet complete with a roof and a customized sign. This chef attended buffet allowed the young guests to pick out their favorite ingredients for a custom hoagie.

The adults enjoyed noshing on some Philadelphia pretzels (sent overnight directly from Philly) with a side of mustard while they waited for their entrée. Following the Horrah, the adults sat down to a beautiful meal of Margarita glazed Mahi Mahi with roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus. They completed the evening with a Caramelized Banana Tart for the adult dessert and a water ice cart from Jeremiah’s for the kids’ dessert.
