a FAVORITE Bat Mitzvah by Guest Blogger Terri Bergman

Today's guest blogger is Terri Bergman of Terri Bergman Events. Terri is a member of the Party Favorite's Party Portfolio. We selected Terri Bergman Events as a member of our Party Portfolio because of Terri's experience, knowledge and creativity. We love her "do whatever it takes" attitude and we love her modern approach to event decor.

It's sunny and warm in DC today as I sit down to write this.  It is hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we experienced one of the worst blizzards in Washington, DC history.  Despite the strong winds, the 24+ inches of snow and the fact that most of the Mitzvahs and Weddings in town were being rescheduled, my clients had the most fabulous Bat Mitzvah celebration.  With the most amazing team of vendors and a mitzvah family who had the greatest attitude, this party rocked! Take a look...

Snowy scenery made for fabulous photo opportunities for photographer GEOFF CHESMAN...

The decor transformed Washington Hebrew Congregation into an elegant and sophisticated event space...

I love the tabletop designs we created which included beautiful letterpress menus...

So much celebrating...

and cozy flannel favors from PARTY FAVORITES for all of Lauren's friends at the end of the evening...

A very special thank you to my talented team of vendors who helped me to make Lauren's Bat Mitzvah Celebration perfect (despite the blizzard!).  Special Thanks to Tom Bowen of THOMAS BOWEN FILMS for renting a HUMMER for the weekend to make sure everyone (including me) made it to the celebration!

Enjoy!

xoxo  Terri
