Bat Mitzvah

Mari’s Glamorous Bat Mitzvah

On a beautiful, sunny San Diego day, Mari’s friends and family gathered to celebrate a special milestone, her Bat Mitzvah. Mari was a superstar at her Bat Mitzvah ceremony and reception – take a look at the pictures!

The party began as soon as the guests entered Mari’s Bat Mitzvah reception at the Ultimate Sky Box in Downtown San Diego.

Guests were able to grab their escort card, which was decorated with bright blush roses, full fresh green and white hydrangeas, and a variety of accent flowers. Hydrangea and rose centerpieces are always a classic choice of centerpieces, that add a modern element to the event. The centerpieces and color palette chosen for this Bat Mitzvah would work great for a bridal shower, wedding, birthday party, and/or baby shower!

Take a look at the pink – glittery “Mari” and Mazel Tov towards the back of the escort card table. The words written in Hebrew- style lettering provide a glittery and glamorous touch to the Bat Mitzvah theme, and display the cultural aspects related to the Bat Mitzvah.

Once guests grabbed their escort card, there was a, flip-book station! A flip-book station is  a different take on the traditional photo-booth. Participants were able to move, make faces, and participate with different guests, to make their very own-flip book!

Past the flip-book station ,was a digital caricature station, that provided instant printed versions of the caricature, as well as a digital version that could be emailed to each guest. The flip-book and digital caricature station made a great impression on guests as they entered the Bat Mitzvah reception, and were memorable souvenirs from Mari’s special day.

Guests could also write special and meaningful messages on a keepsake piece. This keepsake piece was so special – custom made for Mari, who is an avid gymnast. Guests left messages of encouragement and love for Mari to read for the years to come.

One of my favorite things about calling San Diego home is the beautiful San Diego skyline. The Ultimate Sky Box,  was not only the perfect space for this event, but provided amazing views! The terrace boasted of views of downtown San Diego, Petco Park, and allowed the guests to enjoy the evening fireworks (Thank you Petco Park).

On the terrace, there were foosball tables, and Dance Dance Revolution stations. Adding games for the younger attendees is a great way for them to interact with other children, especially if they are on the shyer side. It allows them to make friends and find their dancing partners! Not only are party activities a hit with the younger crowd, but they are an adult favorite too! No one is too old for Dance Dance Revolution.

After cocktail hour was officially over, guests were invited to sit at their tables. The table decorations  for each individual table were breathtaking and so elegant!

Mari invited some of her closest friends to sit at her special table which overlooked the skyline of, Downtown San Diego. The long table was draped with a blush sequined table cloth, with elevated centerpieces. From the elevated centerpieces hung delicate flower vases, with a fresh flower in each one. Blush and white floral bunches lined the table, accenting the elevated flower arrangements – making for a beautiful Bat Mitzvah table.

The remaining tables consisted of high centerpieces with the same bright blush roses and full white and green hydrangeas, as well as clear vases. Each table consisted of smaller floral bunches as well, similar to those on Mari’s table. The clear vase and elevated arrangement allowed guests to converse across the table, without blocking their view. All guests sat on clear chiavary chairs, which tied the girly and glamorous theme together.

Another cool detail worth mentioning is the table numbers! Each table number was unique – displaying different pictures of Mari at a different age. This was a personal touch that can be used on many occasions.

The night was full of fun activities such as a cotton candy station, and a hat & mask decorating station that allowed guests to decorate their own hat or mask to keep with them while they danced the night away during the rest of the celebration.

A big Mazel Tov to Mari and her family!

Dara’s Bat Mitzvah

On July 6th we were honored to help celebrate the Bat Mitzvah of Dara at the La Jolla Country Club in La Jolla, California.

Dara’s palette of purple and silver was lovely. To make it more on-trend and youthful we added black and white chevrons to the design of the event.  We took care to ensure customization of each item so that it was everything she deserved for her special day… and then some!

Dara was blown away by the entire event and her guests had a wonderful time eating, dancing and celebrating with her.

We are so honored by the kind words from Dara and her family:

“Once again ,  thanks for planning a super party – everyone told me they had so much fun.  the dining room especially was breathtaking and the 13 candle set up was outstanding.  You are wonderful….let me be a reference anytime you need it.  Gisele provided exemplary event planning services and her follow through was amazing! I was able to enjoy the evening while she took care of everything.  Thank You for a great Party!”

And what would an event like this be without an amazing team of vendors?! We’d like to give credit to the following people who helped make Dara’s event the special touches:
