Around the World Bat Mitzvah

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs

Hi Friends,

Very fun Bat Mitzvah this past weekend! It was a a Travel Theme for our beautiful Bat Mitzvah Girl Tess. We took it seriously from the beginning,  making the guests check in with our VIP agents to receive their passports to the country they would be traveling to and their table assignment.The client supplied a picture of each guest for us to put inside. Lehr and Black did a beautiful job with the holders!  The client let us know which guests had a good sense of humor and we then we sent them to our Italian security guards to be questioned! As the guests walked down the staircase towards the Crystal Ballroom at the Beverly Hills Hotel, they could easily see the “unclaimed baggage” piled up and way up on top some fabulous flowers resting in a vintage cosmetic suitcase. As they continued on, an air traffic guide directed them to the Customs Booths. The guests had to have their passports stamped before they entered the airline lounge for cocktails and hors de oeuvres. The London Guards kept guard of the ballroom doors so no guests could enter. Travel Posters and aluminum furnishings filled the foyer. When the guards opened the doors each table had beautiful amazing florals representing a travel destination. The flowers were designed by the very talented Eric Buterbaugh and of course his multi talented staff lead by the artistic Dennis! The client wanted us to cover the enormous chandelier that hangs in the center of the room. Romina from Revelry designed a vintage style map/globe to hang above the dance floor. Fun travel banners  of Tess designed by Bob from Popink helped fill up the room. A delicious candy shop at the end of the evening left all the guests saying SWEET! Enjoy the pics 🙂
