The Weinstein Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Weinstein Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

The Weinstein family celebrated daughter Eliana’s Bat Mitzvah on November 9, 2013 at Temple Beth Shalom in Lawrence, New York.

For a Bat Mitzvah girl who loves to act, the party theme was Holl”E”wood.

Lucky for Eliana her mom is a talented graphic artist who thoughtfully integrated the theme with amazing details. We loved the invitations, Website, decor and hysterical montage which deserves an Oscar!

Pictured L-R : Dad Jonathan, Bat Mitzvah girl Eliana, Mom Michal, Sisters Meira, Reva and Brother Jacob.


The photographer was Jerry Meyer Studio and the rest of the vendors are listed at the bottom of the spotlight.




Since the family is Orthodox, there was no service, but the reception was held at Temple Beth Shalom.



The custom service program and kippot were red and black keeping with the party color palate




The invitation gives guests a hint of what’s to come at the celebration, so the Weinsteins chose to create a pop-up invite that definitely conveyed the theme of the party! Instead of response cards, they opted to create a Web­site, where guests could RSVP and get to know all about Eliana. It was cus­tomized to go with the invitations and theme. The Website and invitations were done by Mom Michal’s company MLW Design.

Cus­tom stamps were used as a fin­ish­ing touch



 The Weinstein family looked very Hollywood chic. Eliana wore a custom Zoe Ltd. cocktail dress.

Eliana was very much the star




Bat Mitzvah girl Eliana is into act­ing, so nat­u­rally it felt right to go with the Hol­ly­wood theme.

Danielle of Party Excellence made the decor process easy using a color palate of red, black and gold. With the help of Dina from D Squared, the linens added a beautiful touch of glamour. They used gold and black vel­vet cloths as well as red leather cloths for the buf­fet.



No Hol­ly­wood theme is com­plete with­out a step and repeat background and a red carpet

“Wel­come to HollE­wood” signage and celebrity cut-outs greeted guests as they entered

There were black and red feath­ers in LED vases and cus­tom E! cen­ter­pieces  

Custom “E!”centerpieces

Eliana’s friends enjoyed their own lounge area




The sign-in was a gold mirror that now hangs in Eliana’s room.






Malka Entertainment provided the non-stop dancing and music entertainment.

Eliana’s parents created a clever song for their daughter that parodies the pop hit, “I Love It.”



This song was featured in her montage. Watch it here

The Weinstein family created a very funny and unique montage by going to a big Hollywood montage maker!

Eliana’s friends got a variety of favors…or “swag” as they called it.

Each bag had a custom pencil case with ear buds 

Custom made with the “E” printed on each



 For Eliana’s Mitzvah Project, she invited over 20 of her friends who helped create beautiful necklaces. The family delivered these to children at a cancer ward on their trip to Israel for Sukkot holiday.

Many different styles and colors were created



Some advice from Mom Michal:
“I started early booking the venue and DJ and started gathering pictures and videos for the montage early too. The earlier you start the less stressed you are. I also kept a notepad where anytime I saw a great idea I jotted it down. I used Pinterest to pin great Hollywood ideas.”
