New Mitzvah Organzier
A Bat Mitzvah Celebration With Love n’ Kisses

The Kashkin family from Plainview, New York, celebrated daughter Lauryn’s Bat Mitzvah on May 14, 2016, at Temple Chaverim in Plainview, New York. Family and friends celebrated later that evening with a party in Lauryn’s honor at Temple Avodah in Oceanside, New York.

There were two logos which set the stage for a lively, elegant party. Growing up, Lauryn’s nickname was Laurie-Lu, so one of her logos was LuLu Lauryn inspired by lululemon, the other incorporated her initials LNK: Love N Kisses.

Mom to Mom Advice from Jodi


“This should be a fun process and I know for many moms it couldn’t be further from fun. Keeping an organized list of ideas, talking with other moms, and using the internet can be your best go-to’s for party planning. Through this process I found a number of vendors that I worked with to add fun extras without breaking the bank.”
