Molly’s Spectacular Spring Bat Mitzvah Celebration


In my ten years as a party planner, I have planned some spectacular celebrations. This one, held recently at The Delamar West Hartford, will go down as perhaps the prettiest, most fun and delicately detailed party I’ve had the privilege to coordinate. All photos are credited to the wonderful Shana Sureck Photography. So, where do I begin with Molly’s Spectacular Bat Mitzvah Celebration?

Adults enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio on a beautiful spring day with colorful florals, by
Terri Krisavage Weddings and Events, highlighting equally bright linens.

They were encouraged to enjoy Molly’s Prickly Rose, a signature cocktail that packed a powerful punch!

Young adults got to enjoy a non-alcoholic version of their own signature beverage. Yum!

Appetizers were passed in logo’d containers and with similarly adorned napkins.

After cocktail hour adults were invited inside to join the younger sect in The Delamar West Hartford’s ballroom, where they were met with a dazzling display of color and glamour. There was the sign-in mirror…

The custom menu placed on bright fuchsia napkins really popped on the white tablecloths.

All guests were invited to design their very own custom-sewn tie-dyed sweatshirts. Order up!

Guests chose from an endless array of patches that were then sewn at the ‘store’ by Leah’s talented crew and gift wrapped just like you’d find at your favorite Soho boutique.
