LIGHTING CREATES DRAMATIC EFFECT AT SCOTTSDALE BAT MITZVAH

Give an event planner a blank white canvas and magic happens! That’s what we had for a recent Scottsdale Bat Mitzvah. With a 6,000 square foot white tent to work with, my creative Sensational Event’s team designed an impressive and inviting atmosphere for a dance themed Mitzvah that gave teens a lounge area to hang out in and adults a sophisticated though youthful formal seating.

One major design element that I always encourage my clients to include in their decor package is lighting. As you can see below the powerful effects lighting has can make a space go from beautiful to over-the-top striking! Adding up lights to the perimeter of the room and a pop of color on the tables will create a glow that will reflect attractively in your photography.

HAPPY CLIENTS

It was meant to be that I met Amy Petrovsky, owner of Sensational Events, outside of Costco just eight weeks before my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. After only a few minutes of chatting it was clear I needed her help with finalizing all my ideas. Amy is all about creating a personalized experience. Our ideas and her creative design solutions developed a stunning design and a beautiful reflection of our daughter’s love of dancing. Every detail was meticulously addressed, including the table design color palate, the room’s ambiance lighting, and the flow of the evening. I wish everyone had the same passion as Amy because you can really tell she loves her work. With five daughters, you bet we will use Sensational Events for our upcoming mitzvah and the weddings that will surely follow. Thank you Amy! 🙂

Basketball Inspired Scottsdale Bar Mitzvah @ Monterra at Westworld

Sensational Events is pleased to showcase this basketball inspired Scottsdale Bar Mitzvah. Coincidentally, the client’s son selected his favorite colors of navy and lime green, the official colors of his football team, the Seattle Seahawks and the reigning Super Bowl champions. Thanks to the many wonderful vendors who helped to create lasting memories for my client.

DÉCOR & LINENS
Creative Occasions – created an engaging and elegant look for this basketball themed Bar Mitzvah. The entrance made a wow statement with a lime green carpet with LED glow balls. Inside Monterra LED high boys and a water light feature attracted the adults to the bar. The ballroom was gorgeous in navy pintuck linen and a pop of lime green lamour napkins – the perfect combination for elegance and fun! It wouldn’t be a basketball theme without personalized jerseys.

FLORAL/CENTERPIECES
Jan Dekker Designs – the floral and centerpieces make this event room pop with color. The adult tables blended the elegance of a trio of submerged orchids and candles and on the kids table lime had a fun big fish bowl of green water gels and bowls of green and blue candy.

EVENT DETAILS
The Event Essentials – Kim McDowell is a true professional when it comes to bringing all the details together and keep the branding as one. From the menu cards to place cards she tied it all together.

CUISINE
M Culinary Concepts and Chef Michael DeMaria created a masterpiece with this Asian inspired menu.  From a fusion stacked salad with peking duck to a stunning second course duet of roasted steak morimoto with baby bok choy and ahi tuna atop mirin shushi rice to a trio of delicious desserts. When it comes to service, presentation and quality – M Culinary Concepts is by far the leader!

VENUE
Monterra at Westworld – recently taken over by M Culinary Concepts who is now in charge of the rental and the catering. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the property though we are very pleased they are in charge now.

PHOTOGRAPHY
Life Moments Photography – Peter and Alissa Cohen were amazing to work with! So professional and produced gorgeous photographs. Looking forward to working with them more in the future!

ENTERTAINMENT
DJ Timbo – Crazy and fun is how you would describe DJ Timbo. Love this guy!

CONCEPT

Club Amanda

ENTERTAINMENT

DJ Timbo is one of my favorite DJ’s!  He’s not only a DJ, he’s the entertainment energy bunny.

STYLE

Hot pink glitter dots add the necessary sparkle to top all the guest tables. Adult tables showcased an elegant touch with a platinum lamour bottom linen. Teen tables had a pop of purple color to match the scattered pink and purple candies. Linens by Southwick Linens.

DÉCOR

To create a more private and intimate feel, white drape was added along with beautiful pink satin tie-backs. The walls were washed with a warm pink-purple glow which helps create great ambiance and stellar pictures. The tables glowed with many floating candles in clear glass cylinders which sat on top of pink gel beads. The attention to detail is what brings me back to hiring Corinne Carr, owner of Creative Occasions, event after event.
