Recently I went to my friend Alexa’s Bat Mitzvah. Her theme was “sparkle,” and everything from her dress, to the tables, to the dance floor reflected the theme. The party took place on the stage at the Performing Arts Center at SUNY Purchase. Adult guests received a giant monogrammed “diamond” with a pouch to identify their table assignment. I’m glad that my parents were at the party, as I will love using this as a paperweight on my desk!
For the cocktail hour, the kids were directed to a kids’ room, which had a lot of great games including a giant video game station on TVs that we all loved.
The party room was gorgeous. There was sparkle everywhere in the room. Tables had sequin tablecloths and mirrored vases.
After dinner, tons of disco balls descended over the dance floor, which got everyone dancing!
They gave out a lot of gorgeous jewelry on the dance floor so that all the guests sparkled too. I tried to get one of everything!
One of the best giveaways on the dance floor was a fan that featured a message when you turned it on. We got so hot from dancing that we were thrilled to use them!
The kids’ dessert also descended from the ceiling in giant silver cans. I scored a lot of goodies in addition to a yard long box of cookies!
Yard long box of cookies!
The party not only looked amazing, but it was so much fun and everyone had the best time. Lawrence Scott Events was the party planner.
I’m a 7th grader and live in Westchester, NY. I love tennis, soul cycle, fashion, hanging with my friends, and traveling around the world. Camp Vega is my summer home and my favorite place on earth! I founded the company #Kindnessistherealcool for my Mitzvah Project, and invite everyone to visit us on Instagram @kindnessistherealcool and join the movement. I am very excited to celebrate my Bat Mitzvah in March, 2015.
