A Sunflower Themed Bat Mitzvah

This family celebrated their daughter Sydney’s Bat Mitzvah with a service at Jericho Jewish Center, followed by an afternoon celebration at Bridgeview Yacht Club in Island Park, NY.

The theme of the party was sunflowers along with a beautiful palette of orange and fushia.  A sunflower themed Bat Mitzvah is a great idea for a late summer, early spring party.

The beautiful invitation arrived in a white box

Lustberg placecards

Keeping with the sunflower theme all guests where greeted by this beautiful arrangement when they first walked in. The place cards were DIY created by Sydney’s Mom. The picture frame place cards were found at a 99 cent store and a glue gun was used to afix a brightly colored artificial flower to each one

A photo shoot by Kornfeld Studios was done and photos of Sydney lined the hallway as guests walked into the reception and were also around the ballroom.

Lustberg room decor

Beautiful fushia linens and orange satin chair bows in addition to vibrant centerpieces made the room bright!

Instead of a sign-in board, guests wrote a message to the Bat Mitzvah girl on a piece of paper (of course with a sunflower on top!) and dropped it into a bowl. After the party, these wishes can be compiled in a photo album, framed in a collage or added to your Mitzvah scrapbook

Frank Pepe

Another special touch was pizza from Frank Pepe in New Haven, Connecticut. This is a favorite of Dad Gary and he made arrangements to have boxes delivered just for Sydney’s celebration!
