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.

The photography was by Picture It Perfect and the rest of the vendor information is listed below.
Stephanie of Pretty in Paper worked with the family on this invitation suite which featured a contemporary chevron design and typography with Marlee’s name in the middle.
The color palette of purple and black with white and silver accents continued throughout the party
The service at Congregation B’nai Israel was celebrated with family and friends.

For her entrance and reception, Marlee looked beautiful in a white gown with silver bodice from Group USA but enhanced by Christina of Christians Alterations. Mom Bonnie looked striking in her silver beaded floor length gown. Brother Justin and Dad Michael looked very dapper; we love their purple accents!
Marlee’s chevron sparkle cocktail dress was worn during the cocktail hour and matched perfectly with her party colors!
Purple sneakers completed the look
There were eight different logos used during the party. Here are some examples:

Different versions of the logo were used on the purple step n repeat
Event designer and caterer Kathy, of All in Good Taste, pulled out all the stops at Oasis Night Life to create a beautiful space to celebrate.
Marlee is a huge fashionista and had a great pre-photo shoot. The stylists at Hot Pink gave Marlee four different looks. These pictures decorated the party room in light up boxes as well as in the sign-in book
LED light-up centerpieces included pictures of Marlee striking a pose

Another great shot
Custom napkins, pillows, coffee cups, mints and water bottles were all branded. Also, a customized mailbox for notes and gifts was on display.
Custom napkins in the party palette colors included fun “M” phrases like “Munch it!” and “Mix it!”
Custom mints for guests were also beautifully displayed
Marlee’s nick name is Moey, so they had fun with the adult drink menu signage

Guests could “mail” Marlee her gift or “send” a special note. Guests enjoyed signing her beautiful sign-in book with great shots taken from her photo shoot
Rock With U Entertainment provided the music for this celebration with MC Ross and his high energy dancers.

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.

Custom fortune cookies contained messages relating to Marlee’s life. “I Love You More Than Pasta ….Marlee”
Party entertainment included a living statue that greeted the guests on stilts in a gold lame outfit. There was also an LED Robot that came out to dance with the guests and was a hit! Plus, there was fog and confetti going all night long!

The giant cupcakes in chevron design wrappers were used for the candle lighting. Everyone raved about them, beautiful and delicious!

A special assistant, wrapped in a big red bow, was on hand to help Marlee out
The chevron favor bags had Marlee’s logo on them. A “Thanks for coming” note was included.

There was an interactive beignet station as the guests left and custom coffee “to go” cups made a lasting impression.
Coffee cups were placed on chevron table linens and made a great last impression
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!”
