On Saturday August 24th 2013 we were at Gaetano’s Banquet Center which is located on Banksville Road in Pittsburgh. The event was a Bat Mitzvah for Ruby. Guests began arriving at Gaetano’s Banquet Center at 6:30 pm and as the adults enjoyed cocktails and appetizers, we kept the kids entertained with contests such as Human Puzzle and Four Corners.
At 7:00 pm we formally introduced our guest of honor into the ballroom and then Ruby participated in the candle lighting ceremony. Dinner was prepared by the staff at Gaetano’s Banquet Canter and was served buffet style for the kids and sit-down style for the adults. At the end of dinner, we invited all of the kids to the edge of the dance floor and everyone watched a 10 minute video montage featuring Ruby.
After the video montage, we opened up the dance floor by inviting everyone to participate in the Hora. Throughout the remainder of the evening guests danced to the sounds of DJ Pifemater and all of the kids received multiple party props such as hats, sunglasses, leis, glow necklaces and more. The dance floor was packed all night until the Bat Mitzvah ended at 10:.30 pm.
