The Zimmerman family from Carmel, New York, celebrated their daughter Anna’s Bat Mitzvah on September 18, 2016, with both the service and reception at Ceola Manor in Jefferson Valley, New York.
Anna’s clever theme was ANNAmoji as she loves sending Emojis, the little smiley faces you can send to people through text messages. The family incorporated many simple details around these little icons that guests loved

Mom To Mom Advice from Mom Shari:
“Come up with a theme that you think you want to use and then spend some time searching the Internet for ideas. Those ideas will definitely not be the final result, but they can and should be used as inspiration while keeping your child’s wants and wishes in mind. Take the ideas and make them your own. I would also say to make sure to get feedback from your child before final decisions are made. I am known for last minute planning and Anna was away at camp in the months prior to her party. I made some decisions and then ran them by her when she got back. Some were OK others, not so much. I had to make even more last minute changes to accommodate. If I had her more involved from the beginning I would have avoided unneeded do-overs.”
