About Carrie Berk
I’m an 8th grade Bar & Bat Mitzvah teen blogger for MitzvahMarket.com and live on the Upper East Side in NYC. I love fashion, soul cycle, theater, hanging out with friends, and cupcakes (I have a blog about them: www.facebook.com/PLCCupcakeClub). My Bat Mitzvah Project is for my dance teacher and friend, Elizabeth Maria Walsh, who died of a rare form of cancer at just 26 years old. Direct message me on Instagram (@carrieberkk) for information on how to donate, and follow me for more fun Bat Mitzvah photos!
I had the best time at Cassandra and Madelena Kishner’s B’nai Mitzvah at Current at Chelsea Piers where the theme was “Hugs and Kishes,” a cute play on the sisters’ last name. The night was all about fun and pun!
Ever since I got their invitation, I knew it was going to be a night to remember: it came in a huge gray and pink fabric box filled with chocolate Lindor truffles! So sweet…literally!
The outside of the grey box was adorned with a pink ribbon and broach
Inside was the invitation with all the necessary information
Also inside were these delicious Lindor truffles!
The twins started the night off wearing short, sparkly dresses and then switched to breathtaking ballgowns. They made a grand entrance at the top of the stairs during the reception.
Everything at the reception was double for the two sisters, including two huge sign-in boards with hilarious logos: Cassandra’s read, “Kish My Cass” and Madelena’s read, “Mad About You.”
The whole room was pretty in pink, from the candles and glasses to the lighting.
The cake was triple-tiered, white, and whimsical: there were pink fondant circles decorating it and also had the girls’ “MC” monogram on the bottom tier.
The kids’ area was so cool: I had a blast lounging outside, checking out the view of the boats and the sun setting over the river. And there was so much to do! Besides a surfboard simulator, there was a putting range for us to play golf. Can you say “hole in one?”
I loved partying with the girls and am happy I could share their special night. When it finally ended, we were all sad to “Kish it goodbye!”
