New York City has an eclectic and varied number of event spaces for Jewish weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, parties and corporate events. Our modern city is home to the hottest trend-setting architecture and fashion, so we were delighted to discover The Prince George Ballroom. Located in the FlatIron District in Manhattan and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Prince George Ballroom is a feast for the eyes with its Beaux Arts style and Neo-Renaissance flourishes. In the spirit of tzedakah (charity), 100% of its net revenue is used for NYC outreach programs to help the homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.

Rebecca’s NYC Rockin’ Eve Mitzvah seemed like the perfect theme for this January bat mitzvah. Rebecca loves New York City, the quintessential place to celebrate New Year’s Eve. So Rebecca decided to combine the thrill of NYE with her passion for NYC. Pink was the accent color, as seen by the lighting and all the details around the room. Planned by Party Perfect Orlando and photographed by Jennifer Werneth Photography, this bat mitzvah definitely rang in the new year with style!
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 ......→
Many families want their children to participate in the religious ceremony of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, even if they don’t belong to a synagogue. Such was the case for a recent client of Showplace Floral & Event Design. The creation of a temple ambiance in The Paramount venue – where the party would be celebrated immediately after the ceremony – is absolutely amazing! See for yourself…
When it comes to decor that’s modern and creates a party vibe, nothing turns your event into a hip club like LED lighting. Fun lighting and a pulsing beat lets everyone know that it’s time to grab a drink and hit the dance floor. You can make pretty much anything glow from the centerpieces to the table itself.
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!
