Mom-Bassador
The Levinson Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

 

Sofia Levinson celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on February 4, 2012 at Space in Englewood, New Jersey.

Her theme was based around her middle name Rose. This creative Mom had many special touches and we thank them for sharing their celebration with our readers.

Sarah Merians was the photographer and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of this spotlight.

Sofia’s invitation was created by Ecuamag and brought in from abroad. Once Sofia chose the paper, the invitation was created around it.

Mom Sara called it a labor of love!  Each color rose was a different flavor cupcake. Red, strawberry cupcake with a strawberry meringue frosting. Yellow: banana cupcake with chocolate ganage frosting. Orange: carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Teal: chocolate chip with mint frosting. Violet: vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. Pink, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting

Some advice from Mom Sara:
“I made sure Sofia stayed focused on what was important to us, which is her commitment to our religion. I made sure I did what was necessary on my end: contracts, invitations, dressing everyone etc. I made a schedule for myself for the last week since I was making so many things myself that needed to stay fresh. As for the party, I sat with Elvira and went through the concept of what we wanted. She did the rest. On the Thursday before the Bat Mitzvah, I showed up with the cupcakes and she showed up with the flowers at 1 pm. We looked at each other and knew we were on the same page. I left at 2 pm and came back on Saturday. I knew she got it and was going to take care of her end. It was gorgeous!”

 

Stamp - Mitzvah Project Idea

 

Sofia did a three part Mitzvah Project. She worked during both soccer and basketball seasons with kids that have special needs through a program in their home town. She also participated as a helper in Challenger soccer and Challenger basketball. The third part of her project was to collect books for the Englewood Family Center. It is a non for profit that provides services to the community. They are in need of resources.
