It was a wonderful experience planning the Bat Mitzvah of my niece, Lori. Not only did I have creative license but I also was able to celebrate with my family and truly enjoy the festivities.
A beautiful candle lighting ceremony took place at the Chabad in Boca Raton followed by a dinner. A gold urn filled with jewel tone flowers was set at the entrance with place cards in pink with a gold motif .
The dinner tables were covered in pink bengaline with silver chivari chairs. The centerpiece consisted of gerber daisies and herb plants set on a bed of green moss . The school at the Chabad have a herb garden cultivated by the children. All the herbs in the centerpieces were donated to the garden.What a fabulous Mitzvah Project.
And now the PARTY. The celebration continued the following day at the Old Course at Broken Sound Country Club in Boca Raton.
Lori , did not want a specific theme but rather a colorful and happy space for all to enjoy. The inspiration for the decor was a beautiful candy striped linen from BBJ linen which was used on all the tables. The color palette was pink, yellow and mint green.
The adults were seated at Royal tables. The florals were an eclectic arrangement of different size glass containers with colored wire intertwined with tight bunches of roses. The place settings were complete with a personalized place cards for each guest, glass beaded charger plate and a napkin held with an acrylic napkin ring.
Seating for the children consisted of couches, ottoman’s and high cocktail tables with stools covered in white spandex.
Thank you to Lorant Botha , catering manager at Broken Sound for his creative talent in menu selection. Paper cone’s filled with miniature grilled cheese triangles and a painted dessert plate “especially ” for Lori were a few of the interesting and delicious items served.
The best part of the evening was watching Lori enjoying every minute of her party . Here she is dancing with James from DJM Entertainment.
A thank you to David Images for the photography and Xquisite events for once again the beautiful floral arrangements and decor.
