All eyes were on this Bat Mitzvah girl at her live debut at the W Hotel in Hoboken. But, before the celebrating, a small ceremony was held at Maplewood Jewish Center. The Center had significance to Natalie and her family; the Bat Mitzvah service was held there in honor of Natalie’s grandfather. Back at the W, a step and repeat awaited guests entering Natalie’s party. Event planner Fran Jackowitz of Fran Jackowitz Events brought the excitement of the party to life with hot pink room lighting and a custom neon sign with Natalie’s name in lights. A photo décor wall decorated the lounge space along with customized pink and gold logoed pillows. The tiered orchid centerpieces in lucite boxes designed by Atlas Floral Decorators had a fun and young-at-heart feel. The cake, accented in pink and gold with silver beading, was designed by Palermo’s Bakery and was the perfect Bat Mitzvah cake. Natalie’s friends and family danced on a dance floor with MC Gregg of Pure Energy Group and flowers at their feet. We loved the silent disco where all the kids wore headphones, dancing and listening to their own music! Congratulations, Natalie! #mitzvahmonday
