So Phun, So Dance, So Party: Sophia's Bat Mitzvah

This past weekend, HELEN MILLS was home to Sophia's Bat Mitzvah - an fun, elegant, and dance-filled party that lasted well into Saturday night. The night kicked off with the ceremony that included readings, singing, and some very touching words of advice from the parents of the Mitzvah girl. A cocktail reception with blue-themed mocktails for the kids followed - complete with a photo booth and pop-a-shot booth. Finally, the dancing started with a group photo on the LED dance floor, followed by great music and dancing.

The party was wonderfully decorated from the porthole windows featuring Sophia and her family's dogs to the beautiful floral displays throughout the venue. Check out the photos below for more highlights and fun ideas.

As guests arrived, they were greeted by photos of Sophia and her family's dogs in the venue door's portholes.

Beautiful blue wall wash, elegant table centerpieces, and Sophia's customized 'ssj' gobo made for an elegant bar and lounge area:

The tables had tall centerpieces, perfectly complementing the venue's high ceilings. The branches were perfect for the Fall timing.
