Mitzvah Inspire: Dogs and Candy Themed Bat Mitzvah

Simon Elliot Events from Plainview, New York, photographed, provided entertainment and created many of the decor elements, for this dual-themed Bat Mitzvah celebration for the Beckett family.

Nicole’s Bat Mitzvah took place on March 14, 2015, at Temple Or Elohim in Jericho, New York. She loves animals, especially her Golden Retriever Maggie and a beloved Golden named Bella who passed away several years ago.

As is the case with most 13-year-old girls, she also has a sweet tooth, and simply could not make a decision between the two themes, so the family found a very creative way to combine both.

The day was also distinct for its numeric importance 3-14-15, known as Pi Day, which the family also acknowledged during the celebration.

The custom invitations were purchased through stationer Celia Offir through Luscious Verde.  The illustration was done by Bonnie Marcus, who has a stationary line and is a friend of the Beckett family


Beckett RSVP

 The RSVP had some “sweet” verbiage and was also a clever way to order correct sizing for the kids’ sweatshirt favors

 To creatively embrace the dual theme, the paw print logo with candy outline was created by a local graphic designer Lindsay Moore
