Carlyle Catering
A Stylish and Traditional Bat Mitzvah

Ruth Ridgeway of Ruth Ridgway Designs sent us a very chic Bat Mitzvah she planned and coordinated at The Loading Dock in Stamford, Connecticut.

The Bat Mitzvah girl, whose Mom is a Rabbi, wanted to celebrate her special day with Jewish tradition in a contemporary way.

Using a black, white and pink color palette, Ruth Ridgway and her team created an elegant and hip celebration of life, love and family.
