Celebrate - New Season
The Feinberg Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

 

The Feinberg family from Hollywood, Florida, celebrated daughter Helaina’s Bat Mitzvah in January, 2012.

Color was incorporated in every aspect of this Bat Mitzvah especially the candle lighting ceremony which was non-traditional and enjoyed by everyone.

Pictured L-R: Mom Marnie, Bat Mitzvah girl Helaina, Dad Joel and brother Peter.

Ricardo Serpa was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the end of the Spotlight.

We love the die-cut name on top!

 

v2stamp_theme

 

 Helaina loves color and fashion, so the appropriate theme was, “Shades of Helaina.” Mom Marnie had a collection of photos which showed how Helaina loved to dress up as if it were Halloween.

 Helaina made her special entrance in a multicolored spectacular dress which looked great during the Horah

 

v2stamp_candle-lighting

 

For her candle lighting ceremony, Helaina did something very non-traditional: she turned the ceremony into an exciting fashion show that went on throughout the party! Every twenty minutes Helaina did a wardrobe change into the “theme” of the candle, the song choice and the guest/s being called up. See examples below:

When calling up her cousins, they played their favorite song, “Funkytown” by Lipps

Feinber grandma
When she called up her maternal grandma, who loves Elvis, she returned in an Elvis costume and played the Elvis version of “My Way”

 Feinberg hip hop
For her aunts and uncles there was a hip hop theme

Feinberg slumber party
In the tradition of Oprah’s “My Favorite Things” show, Helaina came out to honor her friends in PJ’s and a blanket. She then announced that everyone would be taking a blanket home that day!

 

 v2stamp_fun

 
One of the many fun activities was a large chair and a life-size cut-out of “Helaina” for the photo booth.

Some advice from Mom Marnie:
“Helaina is the most colorful girl so we went with lots of color, it was such a fun (and exhausting) theme, but was enjoyed by everyone for being a little off the beaten path.”
