One of the sweetest girls we know just turned 13 at her big Bat Mitzvah celebration this last weekend! The beautiful Darly had a busy and eventful day that she shared with her family and friends. West Coast Events was lucky enough to be apart of this special celebration which began at the temple for the morning service and luncheon then continued to an afterparty celebration at Bootsy Bellow’s. Anyone who attended this celebration raved about the amazing turnout, the DJs, food, candy station, dancing, and photo booth!
The day started off early for the team. Arriving at the temple we began preparing for the luncheon to serve after Darly’s ceremony. The tables were all set up with chalk board table coverings designed with decorative words for the celebration. For the traditional temple service luncheon the chefs prepared a variety of buffet selections. This included a variety of salads such as egg, tuna and pasta. To pair with the freshly baked pita we made hummus and baba ghanoush. Also included on the buffet table was smoked salmon, a variety of bagels and desserts from a local bakery. One of the biggest hits with the guests was the Challah bread. You wouldn’t believe how delicious this was! Funny enough, one of the guests even came into the kitchen to grab some more.
Once arriving at Bootsy Bellows the setup began. Which involved a lot teamwork. Setting up table decor and photobooth, blowing up balloons, laying out the “Darly” pillows on each table as well as all of the decor, and of course preparing the fantastic menu in the kitchen!
Since many of the teens and other guests would be out and about dancing and socializing it was great having all of the food tray passed in individual servings. The menu had a variety of food that was teen friendly but was also enjoyed by the adults! Again, the chicken and waffles was a huge success. Also on on the menu was the famous short rib, flat bread selections, pear and arugula salad, and filet mignon sliders with waffle fries.
The biggest surprise was DJ Kahled showing up to give the special birthday girl a Bat Mitzvah gift. DJ Khaled is a family friend who is an amazing inspirational speaker. There is no doubt in our mind that his words to Darly were nothing but true. And guess what? She truly did have an AMAZING time! The party was even written about in Teen Vogue and an interview with our beauty, Darly. http://www.teenvogue.com/story/dj-khaled-bat-mitzvah-keys-to-success.
