Bat Mitzvah with Bold Colors and unique style

Sydney’s Signature Bat Mitzvah

Sydney’s Signature Bat Mitzvah

Sydney Kalish’s Bat Mitzvah was held at the Cedar Hill Country Club in Livingston, New Jersey. While she started off with a Sephora inspired theme, using the beauty brand’s bold black and white design, ultimately the theme evolved to represent everything Sydney loves (think makeup, fashion, jewelry and more!).

The event was filled with tons of custom touches, from the hand painted greeters who handed out specialty drinks and swag to the cocktail hour filled with finger foods in personalized boxes and food containers with Sydney’s logos. Guests were entertained by musicians, a mentalist/magician and two professional basketball players who performed tricks. This was a night that Sydney and her guests won’t soon forget!

The photographer for this event was Kathryn Huang Photography. A complete list of vendors follows at the end of this Spotlight.

Party Details

Mitzvah Advice

“Have a planner or day of coordinator to handle all of the details on the day of the event,” says mom Pam.  “I worked with a ‘dream team’ that allowed me to be a guest at my own party and not have to worry about a thing.”

Mitzvah Project

Sydney volunteers at the Friendship Circle in Livingston, NJ where she spends time working with special needs children and teens.
