We were so honored to design and produce Alana’s La La Land Inspired Bat Mitzvah. Being our clients for over 16 years, we were lucky to have planned Alana’s parent’s wedding, as well as her brother’s bar mitzvah, and other meaningful family events. Watching Alana grow into such a beautiful and sweet young lady over the years made “Alana Land” an extra special celebration not only for the guests but for us as well!
The Kiddush Luncheon was held on the patio of the lovely Bistro Garden! With sky lighting and indoor lush greenery, it was the perfect setting for this lovely celebration. Round tables were draped in apricot linen with feminine floral organza overlays. Each place setting featured a custom designed menu and napkin rings, which displayed our La La Land inspired logo. Each guest also received customized journals from Pop & Suki, black for men, blush for ladies, with their names applied as place holders. The centerpieces were beautiful blooms of cream, blush, pale tangerine with lush greens. Representing our bat mitzvah girl’s love of dance, music, theater and more, each table held elements from that particular theme and how it related to Alana. We loved collaborating with Alana and her family on this unique idea!
The next evening, Alana’s friends, along with her nearest and dearest family, were invited to There-There Gallery to celebrate and dance the night away. As guests stepped out of their cars, they were invited to walk the “blue carpet” and take photos in front of our very own “Alana-land” step and repeat. As guests entered the party they were surrounded by fabulous lighting and greeted with bold wall decor. The phrases, “City of Stars” and other quotes from the movie such as “People love what other people are passionate about,” were strategically placed around the room.
A collection of black mirrored coffee tables and royal blue lounge furniture from Revelry Event Design filled the exterior space and framed the dancefloor. Other details such as custom throw pillows with fun phrases such as “Alana’s Jazz Club” and “Another Day of Sun” were placed throughout the lounge. Nancy Kaye of Mark’s Garden provided floral touches of yellow tulips, garden roses, and greenery.
Along with dancing to the latest hot tunes from the DJ on a star gobo dance floor, guests enjoyed a plethora of activities; shooting hoops, foosball, and skeeball, custom designed jewelry, sports hats customized with each guests’ name, more custom & fabulous items from Pop & Suki as well as a fun & unique photo op.
Guests were also treated to an old fashioned soda bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres and buffet dinner from The Kitchen for Exploring Foods. For dessert, guests enjoyed many treats including hot churros with chocolate dipping sauce and a sweet crêpe station!
We loved planning and designing these monumental events for the birthday girl and her closest family and friends! We could not have brought this celebration to life without our amazing team of vendors! Special thank you to Elizabeth Solano for capturing the day!
