No furniture? No problem. Leave it to Jamie Geller to make moving look easy. Two weeks after the lift left with her family’s furniture, Jamie and her husband Nachum invited friends and family to a farewell barbeque before her family’s aliyah to Israel next week.
Shoshana Neiman from Ambiance Events planned the party and chose a soft yellow and white color scheme to convey a warm, summery feeling. The whole event came together effortlessly thanks to Shoshana's help even though rain threatened and they had to move the party inside with much anxiety over fitting so many people in such a small place. They nixed the large tables and lined the chairs up against the wall, you would never have known there were 100 people there.
BBQ favorites were in abundance and fresh grilled favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs, white and dark meat boneless chicken were prepared by the friendly folks at Meal Mart in Monsey along with a selection of salads and sides.
The kids had a blast running in, around and outside the house hopped up on soda, sugar and sweets.
The camera man hid in the background getting footage for the next Joy of Aliyah episode.
For dessert, the table was decked out with colorful paper napkin cones of roasted nuts and candy from Yumtee Nuts.
Frozen desserts courtesy of Kleins helped everyone keep their cool.
