Erica and Jessica Langer, identical twins from New Jersey, live by the motto that “2 is better than 1″ – so what better theme for their recent Bat Mitzvah than just that?! The B’not Mitzvah girls celebrated a beautiful day with family and friends starting at Pine Brook Jewish Center where they highlighted their Mitzvah project. They chose to raise money for the Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The girls and their guests continued the day with a stunning reception at Vegas NJ in Randolph, New Jersey.
Vegas NJ is a premier event space in the tri-state area, featuring a larger than life stingray aquarium, piano bar and casino. The state-of-the-art all-inclusive venue provided unforgettable catering, entertainment, decor, and even captured it all on film!
Twins’ Mitzvah Theme
The girls chose the theme “2 Is Better Than 1″ because although they have nearly identical taste, they each have a different favorite color which was seamlessly incorporated into the decor of the event!
The room was literally split in half with identical decorations, but one side was pink and one side purple! Similar, but unique, just like the B’not Mitzvah twins themselves! Sheer sparkling linens with coordinating chair sashes, cushions and flowers decorated each side.
According to their mom, “surrounding the dance floor and suspended from the ceiling was a huge crystal curtain complete with a multitude of ribbons hanging down in long strands overhead. Half was pink and the other half was purple!”
Similar flowers were used as table centerpieces set atop confetti-flecked tablecloths.
The “2 is better than 1″ logo was featured all over the reception, from the floor to favors, lounge pillows and even the cocktail napkins!
The sign-in board was creatively divided. There was space in the middle for well wishes for the twins, but a side dedicated to each girl for individual wishes!
Cake & Candle Lighting
What would a B’not Mitzvah be without a cake? A masterpiece created by Pink Cake Box, this tiered cake featured the “2 is better than 1″ logo as well as pink and purple ombre frosting and accenting flowers in both colors. Floating candles adorned the base, which also served as the candle lighting display.
B’not Mitzvah Entertainment
Vegas NJ worked with the family to make sure everyone had an amazing time at the twins’ b’not mitzvah. A news stand was set-up as a pit stop before guests left for the evening. It was filled with candy, drinks, and newspapers covered with a faux spread featuring images and text specifically about the B’not Mitzvah twins! We love that!
The children had two photo booths as well. One was I-Mingle where they could draw on the screen and play with the picture. The other photo booth produced personalized magazine covers. The family also had the fork man come make bracelets, ring holders, tie clips, and money clips out of forks.
The Vegas NJ emcee and dancers made sure the dance floor was packed all night!
Every detail of the event was spectacular, but perhaps best of all was the genuine happiness on the face of each girl and their family and friends. Mom said it best, saying “there is nothing more exhilarating then watching your child glowing and feeling on top of the world.” Mazel tov, girls!!
