New Mitzvah Organzier
The Udine B’nai Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Udine Family celebrated David and Matthew’s B’nai Mitzvah on February 19, 2011 at Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland, Florida. The reception was held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club later that evening.

We are excited to share their ideas with our Mitzvah Market readers.

All photography was done by Domino Arts Photography.

The rest of the vendor information is at the bottom of the spotlight.

Stamp - Mitzvah Decor



The theme was the “Luxe Life” and with the help of South Miami Event planner Sara Renee Lowell, Mom Stacey created a great club theme with cool white modern lounge furniture and draping.

A great poster of David hung against the white draping. We love how their creative logo incorporated both boys initials

Lucite chiavari chairs and linens called, Holy Moly created this elegant look

The centerpieces were lucite rods illuminated with LED lights that sat on a square mirror with additional vases and votive candles

Udine decor
A jumbotron was used to show the montage and the candle lighting videos. Instead of a traditional candle lighting ceremony, friends and family were asked to send their video production company a 30 second to 1 minute message for the boys which was edited and played for all the guests to see!

There was lots of dancing at this party for guests of all ages. The entertainers were the Hot Jam Dancers and Samba Dancers. This family really knows how to move!

The desserts were gorgeously displayed on glass blocks and take home bags and boxes were provided for the guests to fill with all the goodies


Stamp - Mitzvah Project Idea


The boys’ Mitzvah Project was In Jacobs Shoes. It is an organization whose mission is to provide new and gently used shoes, school supplies and athletic equipment to economically disadvantaged youth.  It was formed in loving memory of Jacob’s family, who are well respected members of the Udine’s community and temple.

Here is some advice from Mitzvah Mom Stacey:

“I survived the planning by taking one step at a time.  I didn’t focus on the entire event.  I took baby steps and it really worked.  I kept the kids and my husband totally involved and it worked!”
