Diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Leanna’s “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” bat mitzvah took place on April 26, 2014 at SPACE in Englewood, New Jersey. SPACE’s creator and in-house event planner, Elvira Grau (who also happens to be Leanna’s mother!) called this event a “Party Planner’s Over the Top Bat Mitzvah.” Elvira was faced with the challenge of transforming SPACE into a particularly special backdrop for her most important client to date – her daughter!

SPACE is an all inclusive venue with an in-house chef, DJ, entertainment and of course, Elvira who did all of the décor, design and flowers for the event. The event space is a unique combination of an elegant catering hall and trendy club filled with high tech video games, bowling, laser tag and more. READ MORE ......→
When it comes to planning an event, whether it be a Jewish wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party, it can be easy to overlook the small stuff. No one forgets that big centerpiece sitting in the middle of the table, but what about the rest of the space? Nothing dials down the décor like neglected areas. This is where you want to work smarter, not harder. You want something easy and plentiful. It doesn’t get any more plentiful (and affordable) than water. You’d be amazed by what you can create when you freeze the stuff. Ice décor can be that unexpected touch that gets your guests talking.

5 Ideas for Light Up & Glow In The Dark Centerpieces
LED light and glow in the dark centerpieces are a hot decor trend, whether you’re planning a wedding, bar or bat mitzvah, sweet 16, or any event. Floating candles on tinted, glowing water create a unique and romantic mood. Getting that look from a glow-in-the-dark LED centerpiece takes it up a notch, transforming your tablescape in the coolest and most modern kind of way. Even if you go with a plain linen, this intriguing touch will instantly wake things up.
Whether you’re a jet-setting couple or a beach-loving teen, we are absolutely loving the idea of a beach theme for your wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party. You can showcase this theme in the hot summer months or in the winter – when if our feet can’t be in the sand, our heads and hearts certainly are! Using summertime decorations like sand, beach balls, starfish, and sea shells are all fun – not to mention inexpensive – ways to incorporate this theme. The traditional nautical color scheme of white and navy is popular, while including a bright pop of color such as coral or turquoise can really make your decor stand out.
