New Mitzvah Organzier
Mitzvah Inspire: Sherlock Holmes Mystery Mitzvah

We read about a creative mystery themed Bar Mitzvah on Occasions Online and here’s a clue, “We know who did it!”

The Copeland family from Des Moines, Iowa, came up with the theme together and then Mom Christine, a graphic artist with her own company Designs2 Events and Graphics, went to work creating the invitation, styling and event design.

The classic color duo of black and white was used throughout Jacob’s celebration with bright accents of copper and silver.

Amanda Seales was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom.
