Here is the entrance for the evening party. Ben’s card box was made with some of his shoe boxes.
This Bat Mitzvah was held in an Orthodox Temple. This is the temple that all the congregants worship in week after week. So the challenge was to make this space, that has been seen over and over again by the same people, look unique and special.
The beautiful linen and concept for this event were selected by the Ah-mazing caterer Dina Cohen. Dina not only has great taste but her ALL KOSHER meals are the delectable. The words “delectable kosher food” are rarely used together.
We used several pictures of the Bat Mitzvah girl throughout the party. Here is a collection of photos hanging on a frame with chicken wire and lots of butterflies. This great vintage candy display came from Violet Vintage.
Setting the Mood was lucky enough to decorate for this special event. We made giant “marybone” milkbones to hang from the ceiling, large dog dish centerpieces with colored milk bones in the bottom and a large tennis ball suspended atop.
We folded the napkins to look like dog bones. The cocktail table centerpieces were colored mini milkbones with candles and a dog collar around the cylinder.
Now, this is why Erin is brilliant…..We placed vinyl stickers on the windows that said COME….SIT…..STAY and Erin found the perfect position to photograph the sitting ice dog with the SIT backdrop. Is that girl clever or what!!
Here is a shot of the candle lighting centerpieces we created.
I hope you didn’t get a tooth ache checking out the eye candy!

I know, I know…most of the country is rooting for the Saints but I’m an Indiana girl and I’m all about the blue. Here are some pics of our little superbowl shindig for tomorrow night’s big game. I found all kinds of blue food. Blue potato chips, yogurt covered blueberries, blue and white swirly lollipops, blue m&m’s, blue and white york peppermint pieces, blue blow pops, blue corn chips and even the perfect color blue Gatorade. I also made blue chocolate dipped pretzels, blue chocolate molded in the the state of Indiana and football Oreo truffles (recipe from Bakerella).
