The Engler family celebrated their daughter Victoria’s Bat Mitzvah on November 13, 2010, at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton, Florida.
With Mitzvah Mom Stephanie in the invitation/favor business, this celebration was filled with terrific ideas!
As you will see below, Victoria’s Secret was the theme complete with comfy Pajamas for all the young guests!
We thank them for sharing their daughter’s special celebration with our readers.
New Image Photography took all of the pictures and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

Mitzvah Mom Stephanie owns Pretty in Paper and was very clever and creative with her daughter’s “save the date” and invitation. The save the date was a Key to Victoria’s Bat Mitzvah. The invitation itself was a Diary that needed the save the date key in order to open it.
Guests were asked to “save the key”
The invitation arrived as “Victoria’s Secret Diary” and said “Secret Celebration” following services. Everyone wondered what the surprise could be!
When the young guests arrived, the secret was revealed! They were directed to locker rooms and given overnight bags to store their clothes. They made a quick change into lounge pants and t-shirts. Victoria’s Secret Pajama Party could begin!
All of Victoria’s friends in their comfy PJs and ready to party!
An adult lounge was set up on the stage of the ballroom.

Victoria made her entrance to her party in a large clear bubble. Since her theme was a pajama party her entrance video featured Victoria blowing bubbles and dreaming about her party.
Her entrance video was produced by Timeline Video Productions Inc.

Victoria spends her summers at Camp Robindel in New Hampshire. Fourteen of her summer camp friends came to South Florida to celebrate
In keeping with her theme, a sign-in book was created by New Image Photography.
Instead of a traditional candle lighting ceremony during the pajama party, they decided to make it part of their Friday night dinner. At the conclusion of the candle lighting ceremony, they left one candle unlit. The next night at the pajama party, the candle display was rolled into the room with 12 lit candles and then all of Victoria’s friends came up to light the last candle and take a group shot.
Their photographer and videographer were present Friday night to catch all the fun!
Many creative touches went into Victoria’s celebration. When guests left they not only were given the items below, but warm chocolate chip cookies and milk too!

Guests were given sleeping masks to continue the pajama party theme
Door hangers were also given to young guests

We asked Mitzvah Mom Stephanie for some advice, “Just have fun, do your homework, research and find the best prices and ideas before committing. Most importantly, start early.”
