The Engel Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Engel Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Engel family of Manalapan, New Jersey, celebrated the Bat Mitzvah service and reception of daughter Delaney on March 22, 2014, at Congregation B’nai Tikvah in North Brunswick, New Jersey.

Using Delaney’s favorite color, Tiffany blue with polka dot accent designs, this party had a great logo, fun decor and lots of  amazing energy!

Pictured L-R: Dad Spencer, Mitzvah girl Delaney, Brother Harrison and Mom Leslie.


El-Co Color Labs was the photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.










The party theme was subtly launched by the invitation. The Engel family worked with It’s Your Party who created this polka-dot envelope that held the invitation card.
