New Mitzvah Organzier
A NATurally Chill Winter Wonderland Themed Bat Mitzvah

The Kapner family from Mamaroneck, New York celebrated daughter’s Natalyn’s Bat Mitzvah with a service at Shaarei Tikvah in Scarsdale, New York and a party in her honor at Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle, New York. They created a Winter Wonderland theme with the tagline of NATurally Chill since Natalyn’s nickname is Nat.

Some Mom Advice from Audrey

“The key is staying organized and setting goals each week prior to the event so you can have a stress-free week leading up to the event. I found that keeping a binder of all contracts, notes, and lists kept me organized. Planning well ahead of time also helped when last minute unexpected things happened…because they did. I also found that picking pictures for the montage took the longest so try to work on that way ahead of time. You won’t want to sift through thousands of pictures right before the event when you’ll have plenty of other last minute things to take care of.”
