And we’re back!
Well, the move from Toronto to St. John’s is still in progress, but I’m finally settled in enough to start the blog up again. And this is a lovely event to help me kick off the summer party season.
Event planner Angela Zaltsman and event stylist (owner of Hazlitt Vintage Rentals) Selena Hazlitt sent along the details of this fabulous bat mitzvah that took place just a few weeks ago in Toronto. This event is stylish, creative and inviting – what more could you ask for?
Marley’s family wanted to host her Bat Mitzvah somewhere unique and memorable, so they selected their very own backyard. Inspired by Martha Stewart’s creativity, the team designed a fun, chic outdoor luncheon for 140 friends and family.
A few notes from Angela and Selena on the bash:
A custom-built barn board directional sign greeted guests and welcomed them into the home. Hot pink and white balloons filled the front yard.
Touches of vintage decor set the relaxed, casual tone. Clear vintage canning jars were used for the flower arrangements of Festivus Maximus peony blooms and table numbers. More than 85 jars were over-flowing with peony blooms scattered throughout the tables.
Place cards were attached to small jars of homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam for guest favours. The jam, from a local farm, was homemade and fabulous. The place cards were displayed on a pine harvest table stacked with wood soda crates and wicker picnic baskets.
Guests were treated to signature drinks of lemonade from the “ol’ fashioned lemonade stand.” The lemonade stand featured a custom sign with Marley’s name on it, a soda case for serving drinks and galvanized tubs for holding ice and wine.
White tents with white floors and linens looked crisp while gorgeous magenta table cloths brought the tent to life. Marley’s Aunt Paula and mother pulled together a fabulous array of candy that was presented to guests. There were line-ups to fill their magenta polka dot bags with goodies!
All in all, the party was the talk of the neighbourhood!
