New Mitzvah Organzier
The Mazor Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Mazor family of Boca Raton, Florida, celebrated their daughter Marlee’s Bat Mitzvah on May 3, 2014, with the morning service at Congregation B’nai Israel and evening celebration at Oasis Nightlife, both located in Boca Raton, Florida.

The family had a traditional Bar Mitzvah for son Justin and wanted something different for their daughter.

They decided on a club party with Missoni chevron inspired decor that was chic and sophisticated.

v2stamp_food

 

The food was important to this family and caterer All in Good Taste did a fabulous job. After passed hors d’ oeuvres and sushi, they created interactive dinner stations with unique names to suit the family.  Marlee’s nickname is Moey so the Fajita station was a play on the Mexican restaurant Moe’s Southwest Grill with a sign that read, “Welcome to Moey’s!” The Asian station was labeled, “Mo Hopps of Mott Street,” after the New York Chinatown restaurant Wo Hopps.

v2stamp_mom-to-mom

Some advice from Mom Bonnie:
“For me it’s in the details. It’s the little things that make your party stand out from others. The tone was set with a customized invitation in my daughter’s Missoni theme. Customized napkins, tic tacs, throw pillows, named food stations, everything labeled, branded and customized with our logos and of course the surprises that none of our guests were expecting!”
