Mitzvah Inspire: Carousel

Evantine Designs does it again!

This time a Bat Mitzvah girl named Madison had a carousel theme that took place at the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia.

The challenge began when the design crew learned that the museum was going through renovations and was scheduled to be reopened just a week before the Bat Mitzvah. But no worries, Evantine Design pulled off a terrific and elegant party. We are excited to share all the details below:


The majestic Please Touch Museum

The creative crew at Two Paperdolls designed the save the dates and invitations using custom illustrations, hand made silk boxes, paper flowers and letter pressed papers. Look at the details above like the brass ring

The adults dined in the opulent Hamilton Hall for their elegant seated dinner at long rectangular tables covered with gray linens

Each dinner table had flower-covered carousel horses, creamy porcelain vases and crystal hurricanes.


The kids were in a separate area and had their own dance floor, dancers, games and activities, walk around entertainers (tight rope walkers, magicians, live monkeys, etc) and of course the Carousel. The kids loved dancing on the custom cubes with the Bat Mitzvah girls’ initials on them


There was a custom-designed light up stage at the base of the Sewell Torch and this served as the focal point in the adult ballroom. The stage was designed to raise up the orchestra but also to provide long wide tiers for the 50-person choir that would perform during the evening. Two giant video screens allowed adults to watch both the montage as well as the live feed of the kids having fun in the carousel area

carousel cake

Look at this awesome cake designed by Truli Confectionary Arts.  After studying the real carousel in the museum, taking countless photographs and wrestling with the how-tos of turntables, the carousel cake was a true show stopper

As each guest left, they were given a beautifully wrapped custom-made white chocolate box filled with personalized chocolate treats to enjoy!

We have featured other creative Bar and Bat Mitzvahs by Evantine Designs: Summer Camp and Hot Pink & Orange.
