Bat Mitzvah NY - Brooklyn Botanical GardenThe Bat Mitzvah girl, Isabel, who grew up across the street, had always dreamed of a party in the Garden. She loves birds as much as flowers, and Alexandra Partow Events developed a Spring theme that was present throughout the event. Little decorative birds were sprinkled throughout the tall arrangements of cherry blossoms and low, lush centerpieces of coral peonies, pale roses and spring flowers designed by Seaport Flowers.

The teens’ table was long and sprinkled with confetti. Isabel loves mason jars, so they were used on her table to hold low groupings of colorful flowers.

Garden Theme Bat Mitzvah Party FavorsDuring cocktails, Jeremy Udden’s jazz trio played while the kids were entertained by an amazing strolling magician. The famous Candyman, flown in from Los Angeles, fashioned colorful oversized candy sculptures of animals, flowers or figures, as requested, right before your eyes.

Bat Mitzvah Photography Display - Showcasing Girl's TalentAn important interest of the Bat Mitzvah girl is photography so her photographs were prominently displayed during cocktails. “I want the guests to know something more about the Bar or Bat Mitzvah,” said Alexandra Partow. “We had a special frame made to show Isabel’s work and it was a hit! After the party, she hung it in her room.”

Brooklyn Botanic Garden Bat Mitzvah CateringInside the Atrium, friends and family were treated to a three course lunch featuring a choice of fresh roasted halibut or organic chicken prepared by chefs from Patina Restaurant Group.
