Eye on Bat Mitzvah Planner NYC

Eye on~ Bat Mitzvah Planner NYC  with a broadway inspired theme.

As a planner, we are always on the hunt for an original theme that reflects the Bat Mitzvah gal. 

Colette is a fan of theatre and has a gifted voice. She and her Rabbi created an original "screenplay" for the Bat Mitzvah service. Colette's mom, Bree, found Minton's Playhouse in Harlem as a potential venue for the service. And what a perfect find it is!! Minton's playhouse was the place where Bebop was born; the place where the foundations of modern jazz where established.

The interior design at Minton's included a center stage offering the perfect platform for Colette's Bat Mitzvah service.

We built our design story around Colette's Bat Mitzvah logo. The talented graphic designer, Krista Design Studio, created an interpretation of the play Hairspray for Colette.  Upon arrival guests were greeted with a PLAYBILL along with personalized water bottles of water.

Bright, lush seasonal blooms in burnish gold vessels highlighted the tablescape. Floral designer, Capelily, selected these rich tones as the color palette to enhance the venue's interior decor.

Après Ski 50th Birthday
May 19, 2020 | food hall + haul, in the studio with loretta, interior alchemy, the fun piece, venue this way

We had so much fun planning this theme Après Ski 50th Birthday.

When my client, Amy, reached out about planning her husband's 50th birthday bash we chatted up various themes before Amy suggested 80's Après Ski.  An ideal theme for this couple who shared a love to ski and the best of the 80's.

And so, away we go.....

The first part of the planning process is to secure the venue. As Amy preferred to remain in her neighborhood, we scheduled several site visits in Tribeca. 

Estancia 460 is the ideal venue. The venue offers outdoor space, an open floor plan and plenty of charm!

This super fun invitation was designed by our most talented graphic artist, Krista Design Studio

We converted Estancia's outdoor patio area into a winter seating nook. Added a heat lamp for guests to hang out and chill during the party.

Our team hit up  vintage haunts for ski props & accessories to sit at the entrance of the "lodge". In collaboration with Flower Girl, NYC we set a wintery feel with fake snow, greens & twinkle lights.

WALL ART:

The team at Mod Creative sourced the vintage maps and fabricated these large scale boards.  80's inspired bandanas imprinted with invite logo hung from a vintage ski.

We commissioned commercial video editor and freelance creative, Michael Luciano to produce a  VIDEO LOOP of the greatest 80's ski clips.  Michael created a brilliant compilation of clips from movies, extreme sports, olympics and television commercials. Estancia features two plasma screens, Michael handled the syncing and production of the video. Guests absolutely loved the loop as it played throughout the festivities.
