A Trip to Paris: Shayla's French Themed Bat Mitzvah

 Shayla's Bat Mitzvah took place in November and I was so excited to work with her theme. She did a French Paris theme. Everything took place at Beth Israel Synagogue in Vineland, and all the details came together perfectly with the help of Kristin from Bel Momento.

The flowers in the sanctuary were kept softer, so we did white and light pink flowers along the half walls and by the altar. We used roses, orchids, hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, and waxflower.

The decor for the first night had a vintage french theme, so we used jewel tones and kept all the flowers super warm and romantic. I used red astilbe, plum orchids, wine anemones, gerbera daisies, deep red Black Bacarra roses, and dark purple sweet peas. We decorated these dress forms with simple mercury glass vessels filled with low bunches of florals.

The second centerpiece style used these sweet trinket boxes, which were perfect to stack or add flowers inside. We added a mercury glass goblet on top of one box, while the other was filled with more flowers.

 The room had such a warm and inviting feel.

The theme for the second day was a modern french feel, using hot pink, black, and white. Every table was named after a famous clothing designer.

These dress forms were so pretty! I added fresh flowers into the dress form midsection to create a "belt" of flowers, to add color and make the form look festive. Then we added three white cubes at the base filled with more hot pink flowers.

This was one of the entrance pieces that welcomed Shayla's guests. We hung ivory pearls and hot pink carnation pomanders to gold manzanita branches.

This looked so awesome and so modern.

The white cubes were filled with tulips, roses, mini callas, and gerbera daisies.

 This buffet centerpiece was placed on top of our pure white tall cylinder and was accented with black crystals. We used more hot pink flowers to make the piece pop against the ivory wall.

 These dress forms turned out gorgeous. I'd love to make something like this again! They were so romantic and fun!

I used gerbera daisies, roses, cymbidium orchids, and carnations.

The second centerpiece style used my white candelabras, and we added 15 hot pink roses and placed them where the taper candles would go.

 These really turned out so cool!

But I have to say this is my favorite, although the candelabras are gorgeous too!

 It's so hard to decide which is prettier, such a gorgeous room! LOVED this party!
