Now that the warm weather is almost here, we’re sure you’ll be attending, and maybe even hosting (!) some outdoor events! Here are 6 of our favorite inspirations for an al fresco wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah or any type of party!
1. Play Up The Venue
If you’d like at least part of your event to take place outside, a location with a beautiful and functional outdoor space is crucial. The Sands at Atlantic Beach (pictured above and below) is a premiere beach-front venue on Long Island, and a perfect option for your next outdoor event! While the interior of the space is gorgeous, you can also set up a tent on the beach. The only thing more fun than dancing is dancing barefoot on (or near) the sand! READ MORE ......→
A dramatic masquerade was the theme of Sophie Sela’s bat mitzvah party. With a light and feminine color scheme of pink and purple, the affair, which took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota was one to be remembered! Thank you to Erin Johnson Photography for helping us do that!
When it comes to wedding, bat mitzvah & event color themes, there are always the usual suspects. The dresses, the flowers, the programs. You may be tempted to play it safe and stick to those white table linens. The truth is, splashes of color used in a bold way can have a stunning effect on your décor!
If your event space is less than stellar, you should strongly consider pipe and drape. A wall that needs a paint job is transformed by a soft wash of color and flowing fabric. It’s a lush effect created with surprisingly cheap materials of PVC pipe and common sheer chiffon.
DIY Tip: There are lots of helpful instructions for making your own frame online. You can even attach a pipe to opposite walls and drape the fabric over it. Make sure your fabric panels are long enough to pool onto the floor. READ MORE ......→

Lady Gaga, Madonna, Coco Chanel…you don’t need to be a style icon to party like one! Be a trend-setter with a creative fashion themed Bat Mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party. You can showcase your love for a luxury brand like Juicy Couture or Louis Vuitton. Another option is to highlight favorite things to buy, like shoes or handbags. A general shopping theme is always fun, and the possibilities are endless!
