Beauty Convention Inspires Beauty-Filled Bat Mitzvah Theme

Beauty Convention Inspires Beauty-Filled Bat Mitzvah Theme

Twelve-year old Tamar Fogelman loves makeup. “Tamar comes home and plays with makeup. She keeps forgetting she’s 12 and she’s not going out of the house with a full face of makeup on,” laughs mom, Amy, who embraced her daughter’s love of all things beauty when planning her Bat Mitzvah celebration.

Mom was inspired by the Beautycon festivals that are held each year in NYC, LA and Tokyo. Tamar’s logo incorporated her first and middle initials (Tamar Bracha) and was a near-perfect match for the official Beautycon logo. This branding was featured on everything from cookies to party favors.

Place cards were designed as VIP badges and lanyards (worn at the festivals) and unique centerpieces were built around Tamar’s favorite beauty brands and spa products. The color palette for the event – rose gold and blush – created a Beauty-full glow over the room at Congregation Shomrei Torah in Fair Lawn, NJ.

Read on to see more from this creative Bat Mitzvah filled with many DIY ideas.

“I enjoy creative projects and I have worked on special events so this was a labor of love,” says mom Amy, who also planned three other Bat Mitzvahs for her daughters! “I looked at tons of Beautycon photos and videos and tried to emulate the look and feel of the convention on a small scale.”
