about Dovi's Bar Mitzvah...
It was amazing. Unforgettable. Completely surpassed my wildest dreams.
Let's start with Tuesday night, when my lovely friends Estie and Becca (with a visit by Rebecca) helped me set up all my pretties. By the time we left the shul, it looked like this
I did most of the craftiness myself...I covered all the glassware with pretty brown papers until they looked like this
I made the table numbers-I stamped the table number on 1 piece of paper, and put a picture of Dovi on the other side. I found amazing frames at Ikea which I sprayed to match the Bar Mitzvah (brown of course)
I also made the placecards myself (well with a little help from a friend...) and made 3 photoboards to hold the placecards. I clipped the placecards to the large frames that were filled with pictures of Dovi. When it was done they looked like this:
As cards were removed, you could see all the gorgeous pictures of Dovi that Amy had taken. Sorry the picture is blurry-I took it with my cell phone.
The benchers looked like this:
I also made napkin rings for each napkin, and folded each napkin to fit. Look back at the set tables and you can see them.
So I was ready to roll...the room looked pretty and we were ready for the guests!
Wednesday to come....
