New Mitzvah Organzier
The Goldstein Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

Olivia Morgan Goldstein celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on February 11, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia with a Bat Mitzvah ceremony at Temple Beth Tikvah in Roswell, followed by a Kiddush luncheon. The celebration continued that evening with a party at 103 West in Buckhead, Georgia.

Ryan Carroll was the photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

Olivia Morgan Goldstein’s initials are OMG, which was used in a variety of ways throughout the whole event with a logo that was specially created. Her theme was “sweet time” and her colors were hot pink, black, and white.

Olivia’s Mom Jennifer collaborated with the designers from Creative Designs and Events. They thought up beautiful designs for the place cards, menus, candy bar and floral ice cream cone centerpieces.

 In lieu of a cake, Olivia did her candle lighting with tall glass vases and floating candles.

It’s the little things that count; martini glasses worked double duty, both as containers for cotton candy and as glasses at the kids’ “mocktail bar.”

Olivia had a special drink just for her party, the “bat-tini” — it was served in martini style glasses but was completely kid-friendly and alcohol-free

Jennifer’s advice to other moms is short and sweet: “Being organized is key, but remember to have fun – it’s not supposed to be a burden to plan this special day.”
