Custom Poetry Company

Are you planning a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and feel things are a bit over whelming? My name is Ellen and my Company is Custom Poetry Company.  

I can eliminate some of the stress of planning a successful event by writing your Candle Lighting Poems (one or a package of 13). Below are some samples of my Bar/Bat Mitzvah Candle Lighting Poems and also a sample of a Bar/Bat Mitzvah speech. More samples of my personalized writing for any special event can be found on my website:

Since I have planned both a Bar and Bat Mitzvah, when I write Candle Lighting Poems, I keep in mind that your child is 13 years old and that the Candle Lighting Ceremony should be memorable and yet not too long. Payment includes the poem or poems sent to you on beautiful stationery along with individual index cards for easier reading. Since I want you to love your poems, rewrites are also included in your payment. I will be in contact with you via email & phone to ensure your custom poems are tailored to your specific requests.

I'm sure that your event will be a success and I hope that you let me be a part of that success. I appreciate Mazelmoments for providing such a wonderful site.

A Little About Me:

I'm a mother of two wonderful individuals and for over 20 years, I have loved writing custom poems. Along with candle lighting poems, I can also write personalized poems for any special occasion including birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, etc. I live in New Jersey and was educated at New York University and Columbia University. I love playing tennis and dancing.

    Comments: Thank you so much for writing the fabulous candle lighting poems for my niece's Bat Mitzvah. Without you, we would not have had such a beautiful candle lighting ceremony. You seemed to know more about our relatives than we did! Thanks again for helping to make her Bat Mitzvah such a special occasion.

    Comments: Hi I wanted to leave this review and thank Ellen at Custom Poetry Company for the wonderful job she did writing my daughters candle lighting poems. I found Ellen on this site and am so happy we used her services. The event was a big success and Ellen was so easy to work with. If I requested anything she was there to answer my questions and really got an excellent grasp on all the different family members and friends we wanted to honor. With Ellen, the entire process is streamlined. She works quickly and pays attention to all the details. I would without a doubt recommend her poetry services.

    Comments: Ellen is truly remarkable at what she does. She is incredibly easy to work with and is extremely nice. She goes the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied with your candle lighting poems and even does revisions if you ask her at no additional fee. To top it off, she sends each individual candle lighting poem on beautiful stationary that made it super easy for my child to read. You really helped us out and gave us one less thing to worry about during all of our planning! Thanks again!

    Comments: We were in a huge time crunch and needed candle lighting poems for my sons Bar Mitzvah. With so many other things going on and having to plan everything, we decided to hire a professional and are so happy we did! Ellen at custom poetry company did a fabulous job writing the poems in a matter of days and even mailed us each poem on beautiful stationary that made it so easy for my son to read. We couldn't have done it without you and highly recommend her services to anyone that requires candle lighting poems for their special event!

    Comments: For my Bat Mitzvah candle lighting service, I wanted to have catchy poems describing each group of people that would go up to light the candle. Since a Bat Mitzvah is a lot of work, we did not have enough time to come up with these poems on our own. So we asked Custom Poetry Company if they would be able to write the poems for us, and of course they did. They asked me to give them a brief description of some things that was important to me about each person or group of people and they put together catchy rhymes that not only made all of my guests laugh, but touched them too.

    Comments: Ellen at CPC did a great job for us. She was excellent at being able to capture the individuals personalities through her poems and really got the tone we wanted. Her process is easy and worth it. She was even nice enough to send us a final draft of the candle lighting poems on beautiful stationary as well as write out each individual poem separately making it super easy for my son to read. Thanks so much Ellen and keep doing what you do!
