A Surf of Passage
Bar Mitzvah for Jonah
At the tip of Long Island, Montauk has a vibe all its own. For a hundred years, the cozy lands end has welcomed people for restoration and togetherness. As one family’s favorite home away from home, it was a perfect destination bar mitzvah for their son, Jonah, an avid surfer. The invitation, an extra thick stock, blind embossed with a subtle woodgrain, has a modern but retro feel due to the graphic-inspired patterns that are reminiscent of 1960’s Frankie and Annette surf culture. The sumptuous, hand-stitched, two-tone wool felt envelope, with a stitched address label, carried the invitation across land and sea, and welcomed loved ones to enjoy the understated, über-casual celebration of this important rite of passage. The mid-century patterns adorned a plethora of event accessories including the napkins, menus, and even surf flags to mark the beach gathering’s location.
