Beautiful "Old World" Bat Mitzvah

One of my favorite design looks is somewhat of a vintage or "Old World" look that uses very classic elements for containers and flowers to create a really beautiful and feminine look.

Recently I had the good fortune to be able to design a Bat Mitzvah at Bridgewaters in New York that incorporated these classic elements.  The location of Bridgewaters in lower Manhattan was perfect for the Bat Mitzvah as the inspiration was drawn for the 19th Century Museums on Manhattan's Lower East Side.

Using classic floral in apothecary jars and a lace overlay, a stunning escort card table set the stage as guests entered the room.  Since the Bat Mitvzah girl loves reading and books, I used antique books to accent the table.

To carry the book theme further, for the kids and antique desk provided by Props for Today was used to hold journals that also served as escort cards for the kids.

Once guests entered the room the theme was carried through to the dinner tables as a variety of different sized apothecary jars were used to create a beautiful garden feel to the decor

The colors and theme were continued to the kids tables which were covered with a fun lavender crinkle taffeta linen.  The tables received fun collapsible lucite vases filled with coordinating floral.

The result was a beautiful, fun Bat Mitzvah that will be remembered for years to come.

Until next time.
