a magical masked bat mitzvah ball


When we discovered our newest client had the enviable Bat Mitzvah date of Halloween Weekend, we couldn't help lobbying for a theme that took the obvious to an entirely new level. Instead of traditional costumes, transport your guests back in time to the days of the true Masquerade Balls. Simply request guests dress in Black Tie and provide an assortment of glittering, feathery masks for what may be the most fun-filled photo shoot ever! 

retro reception


There are few themes that invite a huge burst of color and fun like anything and everything Retro, and any glance at family pictures from the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs back in the day is sure to attest to the boldness of the festivities back then (and the wild fashions worn by our Grandmothers!) Consider bringing guests in on the celebratory vibe by requesting “brightly colored, festive attire” on your Reception Cards and see which of your friends and relatives has the most playful spirit. Or what about a Retro-Themed Photo Shoot Station where guests can ham it up for the camera in oversized Jackie O sunglasses and Vintage Bowties?  Either way you can practically guarantee your Mitzvah pictures will be the ones everyone most loves to look back at in decades to come.

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.
