Real Events: LILY Bat Mitzvah at SPIN, New York, NY
Neon Ping Pong Bat Mitzvah at SPIN
I love designing weddings but it's a nice change of pace when we have a chance to design a bar or bat mitzvah. It gives us tons of room for creativity. We can come up with some whimsical and out-of-the box ideas that we don't have the chance to use in traditional wedding designs.
LILY's bat mitzvah was no different. Working with the ladies over at JZ Events made this even more fun. The tone was set when Lily chose SPIN as the venue, it's super cool and fun. Filled with ping pong tables and lounge furniture it doesn't need a ton of decor but we wanted to make it feel special so we came up with a few ideas that were high impact. In a space like SPIN you want the decor to feel as unique and funky as the venue itself.
The balloon garland greeted the guests as they made their way downstairs and who doesn't want to see their name in lights!? The marquee lights rested in a bed of hot pink carnations surrounded by the assorted hot pink and silver balloon garland and mylar backdrop.
The LD logo was created by a friend of the family and worked perfectly for the light projection on dance floor and the glow in the dark floor graphics that lined a pathway through the venue. Custom made ceiling garlands hung over the dance floor and the lounge areas. There was not a huge focus on flowers except for some small designs on the cocktail + coffee tables and larger pieces for the bars. Some magic sequin throw pillows were added to existing furniture for some additional sparkle.
Lily's custom designed candy bar was created by the team from Total Entertainment and the kids (and many of the adults) loved it!
