We were so thrilled to be helping this family with this incredibly special event. It was a Bat Mitzvah held at the Cira Center. Garces Group was the caterer. We were asked to create a party based on Dylan’s Candy Bar and use the ROYGBV colors as inspiration. And we did just that! Everything throughout the party was red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple – in that order! It was an incredibly fun challenge and we detailed every piece of the puzzle possible; linens, chair cushions, candy bar, candles, sign in board and pens, escort lollies, the menus, cocktail napkin, the bathroom basket… we did not miss a thing. We created a special chair for honoree as a keep sake and also made her a rock candy ring to compliment her stunning dress. I dressed my staff in red, orange, yellow, green , blue and purple shirts!

I found this very small hill town in my travels in Italy this past summer. I loved it so much I visited three times. It has a fabulous history and many, many stories all told thru the art and architecture of the town. There is a fabulous juxtaposition of medieval ruins against very modern art. The grounds are perfect for an outdoor wedding  located inside the remains of the original castle, built long, long ago. There is a breathtaking spot for the ceremony and many different spaces for the reception. Imagine a wedding “sotto le stelle” (under the stars). An adorable church is right across the piazza for a formal church service. A comfortable breeze is constant in this hilltown as well as some of the most amazing views.

You know how we are into the details! This candy bar matched in all kinda ways with the design of the wedding. We even had chocolate dipped running sneakers to represent the B&G’s favorite workout!

Escort leaves

Escort leaves are always a unique way for your guests to find their seats. We hung some on the tree and placed he rest in alphabetical order around the table. That and candle light made it beautiful.
