New Mitzvah Organzier
Really Fun Name Inspired Bat Mitzvah


The Nussbaum family from Scarsdale, New York, celebrated their daughter Rebecca’s Bat Mitzvah on February 27, 2016 with a party in the evening at Willow Ridge Country Club in Harrison, New York.

Rebecca’s party was designed around her fun theme Really Rebecca and the idea really took off!  On the suggestion of Rebecca’s grammy, who passed away a few months before the Bat Mitzvah, the color Tiffany blue was incorporated into the invitation, decor and fashion decisions.  She was the one who suggested the color to complement Rebecca’s beautiful blue eyes.

Mitzvah Project

Rebecca loves art. She spent a few Saturdays at a library in New Rochelle that hosted art project events for kids from low income families. One afternoon she helped them make homemade holiday gifts.

Advice from Mom Caroline

“Be organized and don’t panic that you’re not doing everything for the event months in advance – much of it happens closer to the date.  Of course book your venue and vendors such as your entertainment company and photographer way in advance.  Next would be the invitations, which I find so often can help guide you for your color scheme and possible theme.  Everything comes together – it always does. Whatever CAN be done in advance should get done, but don’t rush things such as giveaways, favors and games for the kids because things change so quickly these days. You might want the latest ‘this and that’ and would hate to have spent time and money on things early just to be done.”
