We saw part of Livvy’s rehearsal at the Temple and I was blown away by her beautiful singing voice and her poise when she was practicing her Torah portion. Also, her yad (hand in Hebrew, that is used to point to the Torah as you read) was specially designed by the bat mitzvah girl. That was a very special detail that we had not yet seen.
The celebration was at The Temple in their amazing ballroom. It had an “Anthropologie” type of theme, with oranges, greens, browns and very cool tree and natural decor. Sharon Fisher from It’s My Party was amazing–she and the gals from Tulip came up with all the fantastic ideas. It was just beautiful. Sandra Bank from Added Touch Catering created the most amazing dessert area…oh yeah, the dinner looked good, too. But–those desserts!!! Whoa.
DJ Jazz did his awesome thang, and I don’t think Livvy was off the dance floor for a minute. I was most impressed that she got up to the microphone to thank her family and also all her friends and family for being there with her. It was a really sweet and genuine thank you–we don’t always see the kids do that! The invitations and table cards were done by Susan Hammer–they were letterpressed, and perfectly fit the theme of the night.
Livvy, we wish you and your amazing family a big Mazel Tov! Thanks for letting us share your special celebration with you. Now…on to younger brother Phillip’s bar mitzvah in 2017.
