Well, if the country club ladies popping their heads in and gasping out loud in gleeful delight were any indication, it’s that our hot pink and orange bat mitzvah for Sydney was SPOT ON fabulous!

An avid dancer, Sydney’s only request was to include a subtle “So You Think You Can Dance” theme in our design wherever possible. The Papery of Philadephia created a logo that was reminicient of Sydney “striking a pose” in one of her dance classes. Event designer, Melissa Paul made sure the logo was used on a large white wall we placed behind the place card table, as well as on the inside of the place cards, on cocktail napkins, sweatshirts, knapsacks and on the video screens over the dance floor.
Guests were invited to leave notes, wishes, dreams and drawings on quilting squares that would later be made into a bedspread for Sydney’s bedroom. We were overwhelmed by the creativity the kids showed in their messages and designs!
Cubbies not only provide personal space for each child’s belongings, but they offer a clever and controled way to deliver personalized favors at the end of the party. Our pink and orange tags are arranged alphabetically on orange knapsacks pre-stuffed with sweatshirts, socks and other goodies.
The kids were seated for dinner at long, high community tables on one side of the ballroom. Sizzling hot pink linens, orange bar stools and white vases filled with happy gerbera daisies were all the decoration needed.
There’s the birthday girl hanging out in the cool lounge area.
Below, more pictures of the gorgeous square dinner tables holding a mixture of tall white lamps, modern glass hurricanes, floating candles and crisp white details. Of course, the flowers were a priority for Sydney’s mom, Lauren! We made sure to provide an abundance of lush summer blooms in every shade of orange, tangerine, pink, fuschia, magenta and apple green. Green Valley Country Club never looked so happy!
Who says the party’s just for the kids? Aren’t we all kids at heart?
Even Emcee Anthony from Hot Hot Hot is having a blast on the dance floor!
The birthday cake from Cake Art Studio was truly the cherry on the sundae! Not only did it reflect the overall design concept but it tasted divine!
… and what would a mitzvah be without an amazing Sugar Bar? we provided a large display of goodies, such as chocolate covered marshmellows, gumballs, orange licorice, strawberry mini cupcakes, good-n-plenty, rock candy, orange sours, peach rings and God knows what else!
Everyone enjoyed the party until the very last mother-daughter hug on the dancefloor. Mazel tov Syd!
