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.
Delicious Save the Date favors hinted at the candy theme
Julie Pederson of Barefooted Creations did the invitations.
Everything matched perfectly, and the OMG logo (her initials) was prominent throughout
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.
Even the black and white tile dance floor at 103 West matched the theme
The centerpieces looked like ice cream cones to match the “sweet time” theme
The black, white, and hot pink color scheme extended to every detail, including the menus
The OMG floral letters came from Etsy, and hung above an impressive candy table
In lieu of a cake, Olivia did her candle lighting with tall glass vases and floating candles.
Hot pink flowers were scattered on the black tablecloth to keep continuity with the color scheme
Floating candles in tall glass vases with glass beads at the bottom: an elegant alternative to a cake
Olivia and her friends enjoyed a custom kids lounge, complete with white furniture, a “mocktail bar,” and a cotton candy cart.
The kids lounge was just as elegant as the rest of the decor
Everything stayed true to the sweet candy theme, even the place cards

Olivia found her pretty short dress at David’s Bridal.
RC Engravables created adorable OMG sweatshirts for the party favor; the boys and the girls got slightly different designs.
All the sweatshirts said OMG 2.11.12 on the front
The girls’ sweatshirts had a big pink heart on the back
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.”

An old-fashioned cotton candy cart fit right in to the yummy pink theme
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.”
