Mitzvah Inspire: The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s


The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s is located in Darien, Connecticut and is known throughout New England for their culinary excellence, peerless service and picturesque waterfront location.

The Kolberts celebrated their third and final Bat Mitzvah on January 16, 2011 for their youngest daughter Samantha at this venue, the same one they used twice before.

We thank Giovanni’s and the Kolberts for sharing their daughter Samantha’s Bat Mitzvah celebration with our readers.

All photography was done by Riva Aeylon & Her Lens.

Stamp - Mitzvah Decor


Like many Mitzvah kids, Samantha decided not to have a specific theme, but wanted a brightly colored room to celebrate in.  Arlene Rosenthal from Party Ideas in Westport, Connecticut transformed the room.

Now that Mitzvah Mom Denise has planned all 3 of her daughters Bat Mitzvah celebrations, we asked her for some advice: “Keep in mind that this is a celebration for your child and it should be a fun and joyful experience for your entire family. We loved working with the staff at The Waters Edge (3 times!). They are professionals who coordinate events like ours daily. Enjoy the moment!”
