Whether with mustard yellow or bold orange, gray adds a masculine edge to virtually any color it’s paired with. Keep décor simple + witty with bowtied napkins and the Bar Mitzvah boy himself looking dapper with a three piece combo like this one from (the always stylish) Marc Jacob. Proof that it doesn’t take a 20's flapper theme to capture Jay Gatsby’s flair, just clean lines and a hint of crisp color.

Like the Bat Mitzvah Girl herself, this look is a perfect blend of Daddy’s-Little-Girl sweetness with Oh-So-Grown-Up sophistication. Bring out your Bubbie’s treasured teacups for Sunday Brunch and watch as older relatives can’t help telling stories from the old days. What a fabulous way to connect the generations!

manhattan mitzvah...urban garden gorgeous!



When we were invited to design the Invitation Suite for an early Spring garden rooftop Mitzvah in Manhattan, we jumped at the chance. Marriages of opposites almost always lead to stunning design results and the combination of urban landscape with gorgeous greenery is no exception. What unique concepts can you pair for your event to up the drama? The unexpected is rarely far away!

Dreaming of an evening of delightful drama? Nothing puts the formal touch on and event like a pure black and white color scheme. Whether with bold stripes, charming chevron or fabulous florals, keeping a superbold but strictly monochrome palette guarantees a night of classic elegance without ever once trending towards boring. Best of all, it’s a look that works equally well for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, so it's utterly perfect for boy/girl twins.

Tradition With Texture

Our Pinterest boards are filled with brilliant ideas but this is definitely one of our favorites. Celebrate the history of your family by featuring photos of relatives at their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, or even just as young teens. These beautiful centerpieces not only provide a fabulous conversation piece but also graciously acknowledge the importance of tradition and continuity to your family. Take the whole idea one step further and bring old world details to your desserts + décor.
