The Lasky Family looked great. Mom Roberta’s cocktail dress was Adrianna Papell from Nordstom and Bat Mitzvah girl Allison’s dress was from All Dressed Up. Dad Bob and brother Dylan had matching ties and got their suits from Lubin’s/Rothman’s.
Alli’s Bat Mitzvah invitation from Checkerboard Invitations was bright orange with a pink trim and bow, and ordered from Perfectly Personal by Jen.
The New York City theme was created by Brian Williams Events and included some of Allison’s favorite places: Yankee Stadium, Washington Square Arch, Rockefeller Center and Broadway, which put guests into a New York State of Mind.
In typical New York style, guests received their Metro (Place) Cards

Advice from Mom Roberta:
“Start early, double-check all your vendors, and use Excel spreadsheets for everything. Involve your child- they have the best ideas. Involve your other children as well.”
Allison did her mitzvah project at the Mt. Kisco Child Care Center. She worked with the toddlers for two months on a Friday after school for two hours each time she was there.
