The Weinstein Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Weinstein family celebrated daughter Eliana’s Bat Mitzvah on November 9, 2013 at Temple Beth Shalom in Lawrence, New York.

For a Bat Mitzvah girl who loves to act, the party theme was Holl”E”wood.

Lucky for Eliana her mom is a talented graphic artist who thoughtfully integrated the theme with amazing details. We loved the invitations, Website, decor and hysterical montage which deserves an Oscar!

Pictured L-R : Dad Jonathan, Bat Mitzvah girl Eliana, Mom Michal, Sisters Meira, Reva and Brother Jacob.

 

The photographer was Jerry Meyer Studio and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of the spotlight.

Since the family is Orthodox, there was no service, but the reception was held at Temple Beth Shalom.

The custom service program and kippot were red and black keeping with the party color palate

 

 

stamp_invite

 

The invitation gives guests a hint of what’s to come at the celebration, so the Weinsteins chose to create a pop-up invite that definitely conveyed the theme of the party! Instead of response cards, they opted to create a Web­site, partywitheliana.com where guests could RSVP and get to know all about Eliana. It was cus­tomized to go with the invitations and theme. The Website and invitations were done by Mom Michal’s company MLW Design.

Bat Mitzvah girl Eliana is into act­ing, so nat­u­rally it felt right to go with the Hol­ly­wood theme.

Danielle of Party Excellence made the decor process easy using a color palate of red, black and gold. With the help of Dina from D Squared, the linens added a beautiful touch of glamour. They used gold and black vel­vet cloths as well as red leather cloths for the buf­fet.

 For Eliana’s Mitzvah Project, she invited over 20 of her friends who helped create beautiful necklaces. The family delivered these to children at a cancer ward on their trip to Israel for Sukkot holiday.

Some advice from Mom Michal:
“I started early booking the venue and DJ and started gathering pictures and videos for the montage early too. The earlier you start the less stressed you are. I also kept a notepad where anytime I saw a great idea I jotted it down. I used Pinterest to pin great Hollywood ideas.”
