A Bar/Bat Mitzvah Kid doesn’t do it alone! We celebrate area families who recently celebrated a Mitzvah and find out about their festivities.

Shari and Scott’s daughter Jenna became a bat mitzvah at Congregation Dor Tamid, followed by a Kiddush luncheon and an evening celebration at Country Club of Roswell. Her “Just Jenna” themed event was attended by nearly 200 family and friends.

The décor focused on the Jenna logo design with four colors (hot pink, turquoise, purple and lime green) serving as the palette for room design by Let’s Celebrate. Tables were adorned with tall lighted feather centerpieces or lamps with shades bearing Jenna’s logo. Catering was provided by Country Club of Roswell for the evening celebration, with several of Jenna’s favorite foods on the menu.

Dj Mello of Atlanta Fever introduced each family member separately, with their own songs, for their grand entrance. During the cocktail hour, Mello led an “All About Jenna” trivia game that she and her friends enjoyed before getting down to dancing! Scenesations Photography did a wonderful job capturing the moments during the party! Guests received t-shirts screened with Jenna’s logo as party favors.

Shari said, “The whole weekend was absolutely incredible, from the service, to the Kiddush luncheon, to the party!!! Jenna felt incredibly loved by all of our amazing friends and family. “

Advice to other parents:

According to Shari, the DJ makes the party. Choose the one that will help you create the atmosphere you want. “Our family wanted a huge dance party with everyone up and on the dance floor. Mello always delivers!”

To keep the weekend running smoothly, Shari swears by to-do lists. “I wouldn’t have survived without my lists!  So much goes into each facet of the weekend, it’s impossible to remember everything that needs to be done without them!”
