Andres Ruff, a popular graphic design and party styling firm from Charlotte, North Carolina, was recently asked to create party designs for an Art themed Bat Mitzvah. Stylists, Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff worked alongside party planner Bridget Gasque of Loftus Design for a creative collaboration. Extra special touches included art work done by the Bat Mitzvah girl herself.
The venue was the Foundation For The Carolinas in Charlotte, North Carolina. The photographer was Emily Lapish. Check out all the great details below:
As guests entered the venue, they found this seating chart. Each table was named for a famous artist and featured a replica of their work created by the Bat Mitzvah girl
Table 1 was for Warhol
Table 2 was the Matisse table
The venue is a contemporary art gallery with high white ceilings
At each place setting there was a miniature art canvas on an easel with each guests' name. Notice the tin of mints with the initial "E"
Coral, pink, and green were the colors for this party
There were alternating centerpieces. This one was filled with tropical flowers in a colorful vase
A picture of the Bat Mitzvah girl painting served as the sign-in board
The food was displayed creatively; here's salad in a mini fish bowl
The food buffet displayed art elements that were colorful and creative
'Emily's Artsy Lemonade' looked refreshing and was styled beautifully
Cake and Candle Lighting
The splatter-paint cake had a topper made out of "sugar work" formed into an "E" for Emily's monogram
The Bat Mitzvah girl lit a floating votive candle for each special guest. The vase also held a single colorful flower
Emily lit the candle with her parents Jaques and Sherry by her side
We thank Anders Ruff for sharing this wonderful Bat Mitzvah with our readers.

After attending hundreds of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and planning my own kids' celebrations, I wanted to create a resource where Moms could share their ideas on unique candle lighting ceremonies,clever entrances, dealing with the Bar Bat Mitzvah service, managing vendors, out of the box invitations, meaningful Mitzvah Projects, and much more! We talk with hundreds of Moms from across the country to bring you the newest thinking in Bar and Bat Mitzvah planning. We hope you take these ideas and make them your own! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and get fresh ideas every week. Enjoy, Sheri
