We’re loving the party trend of candy and dessert buffets! Don’t worry, nothing will be replacing the beautiful wedding cake or themed bat & bar mitzvah or party cakes anytime soon. Rather, the dessert table has gotten much bigger to make room for a variety of sweet treats.
Dessert tables are another area where you can get creative, and leave a lasting impression on your guests.
Top 4 Ways to Showcase your Wedding, Mitzvah or Party Candy & Dessert Table
1. Highlight your COLOR THEME or COLOR COMBINATION:
Erica and Jessica Langer, identical twins from New Jersey, live by the motto that “2 is better than 1″ – so what better theme for their recent Bat Mitzvah than just that?! The B’not Mitzvah girls celebrated a beautiful day with family and friends starting at Pine Brook Jewish Center where they highlighted their Mitzvah project. They chose to raise money for the Fetal Diagnosis & Treatment Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The girls and their guests continued the day with a stunning reception at Vegas NJ in Randolph, New Jersey.
Vegas NJ is a premier event space in the tri-state area, featuring a larger than life stingray aquarium, piano bar and casino. The state-of-the-art all-inclusive venue provided unforgettable catering, entertainment, decor, and even captured it all on film! READ MORE ......→
Lily Israel recently celebrated becoming a Bat Mitzvah in her hometown of Orlando Florida, and celebrated with a stunning affair. The theme was All Things Lily, using light pastel colors with pops of bright pink, and patterns that were feminine and fun. Bliss Events by Laurie Anne Portella did an amazing job planning and executing the event, and Scott Watt Photography captured the whole day for us to “ooh and ahh” over this beautiful occasion!
When it came time for Bat Mitzvah girl Ava to pick a theme, it was easy! Combining her love of music (vinyl, no less!) and painting with her fun-loving personality, Ava went with a graffiti grunge theme. The party was aesthetically awesome as well as interactive for guests! Photography by Kelsey Crews Photo.
Milestone birthdays are events that call for a huge celebration and bar/bat mitzvahs are no exception. However, celebrations of this grandeur can require a lot of planning and it can be a bit overwhelming. Social media is a great outlet for inspiration and Pinterest is a platform that not only stimulates ideas, but serves as a location to store all of your plans on one easy-to-use site.
We’re so excited to bring you a gorgeous b’not mitzvah from one of our readers – Michelle!

Danny is a huge fan of The Beatles and also plays the drums, so it only makes sense that his Bar Mitzvah was a music-lovers paradise. The Beatles were an inspiration for every piece of decor and design, creating an exciting and relatable theme for guests of all ages. Thanks toLasting Memories Photography for capturing the entire day!
