We love planning events and being part of the celebration for so many families over the years.  The last time I had planned an event for our immediate family was for my own wedding almost 17 years ago.  This past year, I had the joy and privilege of sharing the planning of Kayla’s Bat Mitzvah with my incredible daughter.  The entire process was so fulfilling and truly SO MUCH FUN.  Having my favorite assistant (nothing against my stellar team) aka Miss Kayla who was so involved and eager and able to plan and design every detail made this experience that much more meaningful.  It was such a pleasure to be on the other side of the planning and enjoy a phenomenal weekend of which we will forever have the best memories.
Thank you does not even begin to express our gratitude and appreciation and recognition and respect for the amazing talents, generosity, creativity, love, and dedication demonstrated by our vendor team and partners that made the weekend possible.  These are colleagues and true friends with whom I (and Kayla) spend many, many weekends working alongside.  These are some of the best in the business and we are fortunate to have had their leadership and enthusiasm and assistance in creating events my daughter and family will forever cherish.  And I was SO happy many were able to party with us and enjoy an evening out once the event was set and ready.

Being part of the planning and celebration for the second of this family’s three young adults is such an honor.  I am so grateful for their friendship and to be trusted with all the details and design of such a significant event.  We needed a space that could comfortably accommodate 300 people and emphasize elegance balanced with personality and pops of color.  Infinity Park was just the venue, though we knew we would be completely transforming the space to create a winter wonderland feel to touch on Allie’s love of skiing and the outdoors while complimenting the surrounding screens with images of family vacations and memories of Allie leading up to her bat mitzvah.  Brinton Studios shared the gorgeous photos on our blog.

It was also a joy to watch Allie embrace learning Hebrew and a respect and love for Judaism.  I have had the pleasure of getting to know Allie over the past three years during her brother’s Bar Mitzvah planning as well and she is a vibrant, intelligent, funny, and sophisticated young lady.  She is one of those people that lights up a room and has a very bright future ahead.

Sydney’s “Fall Ball” bat mitzvah theme was inspired by the autumn season and her mitzvah project focusing on EKAR farms.  Celebrated at JW Marriott, Cherry Creek, it had a touch of Colorado elegance and sophistication, accented with activities and entertainment perfect to entertain the young and the young at heart.  Captured here in all the vibrant fun by Brinton Studios with floral design by Newberry Brothers and lighting décor by Pure Energy.



A fall-themed Kiddush lunch following services set the tone for an elegant and fun and sophisticated celebration.  Sydney’s mitzvah project involved the urban farm, EKAR, where gourds, pumpkins and other vegetables were gathered for tablescape décor to compliment centerpieces by Newberry Brothers.



Décor from the lunch was integrated into the evening party theme as well.  Scented candles in autumn colors were adorned by die cut paper leaves serving as escort cards.  The candles and river stone guest book were selected and designed by Sydney with her mom.


A build your own pasta bar kept the kids happy while creative displays of soup shooters, salads, pasta, and carving stations provided hearty fall fare for adults.  After some dancing, a caramel apple station with colorful candies and nuts for dipping continued the fall theme and was a hit with both adults and kids.  A nine layer macaroon tower was also featured for dessert.


Dance Trax provided a very interactive dj/mc and a team of dancers to engage the kids and keep the energy level and excitement high all night.  A photobooth and flipbook station with props added fun options off the dance floor as well.


Congratulations on your fun sophisticated “Fall Ball”, Sydney!  It was a pleasure celebrating with you and your family!
