One of a Kind Bat Mitzvah Entrance: All About Samantha

One of a Kind Bat Mitzvah Entrance: All About Samantha

This Bat Mitzvah girl really knows how to make an entrance!

Samantha Goldberg’s family entered her Bat Mitzvah celebration at Washington Hebrew Congregation, in Washington D.C., in traditional style- the MC announced their names to a song and they came out dancing. When it came time for Samantha’s big entrance, there was nothing traditional about it. The lights dimmed, her camp Olympic break out song played overhead, and a huge teal and magenta gift box (complete with oversized sparkly bow on top!), was wheeled out on to the dance floor. When the dancers opened the box, out came… Samantha! This surprise entrance was actually conceived by dad, Marc, who worked with the event designer to make the magic moment happen. 

For the party theme and decor, the Goldbergs worked with Corey Paige Designs to come up with a pop art style collage that represented Samantha. Her favorite sports, college, camp, TV show, colors and even her dog Lily were incorporated in the collage. The collage was the centerpiece of the reception, covering the entire dance floor and setting the color scheme.
