Candyland isn’t just a game for kids! Molly celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at the Westminster Hotel in New Jersey with a creative spin on the iconic board game. Guests joined in her celebration with an escape to Mollyland! Thank you to Chris Jorda Photography for capturing it all for us.
The bat mitzvah weekend included Holocaust Remembrance Day, which was significant since Molly was born on that day in 2001, and her grandmother is a Holocaust survivor. A donation was made to Self Help NY, an organization dedicated to supporting those who suffered in the Holocaust.
According to mom Karen, “the weekend had the balance of a spiritual and religious event with the combination of family and friends. Every person in the room was celebrated as having touched Molly in their own unique way.”

We saw a collection of overall soft hues – a mix of cool and warm, but all subtle. The top 10 color collection is meant to be minimalistic, going by the name “En Plein Air,” a French expression translating to “in the open air.” The entire palate confirms the notion that color is a lifestyle, and isn’t merely just for fashion or home decor, but every aspect of a person’s life…including weddings and events!
Nature-lover Jenna celebrated her Bat Mitzvah in New Jersey, with a lovely ceremony and Rainforest themed party. For the “green theme,” green was a natural color choice, with pops of purple defining the event space. Potted plants and floral centerpieces could be planted after the event – a perfect eco-friendly choice! Photography by Art + Life Photography.
