The Paige Talarico Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight



The Talarico family from Merrick, New York, celebrated daughter Paige’s Bat Mitzvah on March 16, 2013.

Their Havdalah service took place at Temple Beth Am in Merrick, New York, with a reception at the Bridgeview Yacht Club in Island Park, New York.

We previously wrote about son Ross’s party theme, “Hats Off To Ross,” now it’s daughter Paige’s turn.

Her theme was inspired by one of Paige’s favorite colors and store, PINK.

Pictured L-R:  Dad Ed, Brother Drew, Bat Mitzvah girl Paige, Mom Marci and Brother Ross.


The photographer was Classy Candids and the rest of the vendor directory is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.








Their Saturday night Havdalah service at Temple Beth Am was followed immediately by a black tie optional celebration.

Using the popular teen store PINK as inspiration, Dazzling Parties created the decor using a pink and gold color palette in all the details around the room.

  Talerico socks

Mom Marci made up the tag lines for the sock to give the feel of the PINK stores as they always have fun commands on their garments





There were many unique elements at this party. Interactive activities included a bike game set up by Creative Games, an interactive cocktail display from Screaming Queens and event artist Martin Hardy who captured all the fun on canvas.

Love this door hanger that was hanging on each car’s rear view mirror at the end of the night




Paige did her Mitzvah Project thru the Remember Us Holocaust B’nai Mitzvah Project.

 She did a twinning and conducted her service in honor of a girl named Roza Heier that died in the Holocaust and therefore did not have the opportunity to have her own Bat Mitzvah.





Some advice from Mom Marci:
“My advice would be to make a list of all the things that need to get done as well as a time frame in which to do them. Staying organized and planning ahead is extremely important. Also, make sure that you hire communicative, trust worthy people you can depend on.”
