After the first meeting with 13 year-old fashionista, Mikaela, Aliana Events knew that the Bat Mitzvah needed to be chic, stylish, and reflect her lively personality. Bright and girly colors were the focus, using the pink family of blush, magenta, fuschia, hot pink, with hints of green. With the party being held outdoors on the rooftop of the LUXE Hotel on Rodeo Drive, the flowers were designed in a garden style with rich textured linens, tufted blush sofas, and custom glam pillows. The design team felt very inspired by Stella McCartney’s lip collection, which sparked the idea for custom lip chairs, pillows, and ottomans. Those small details took this party to the next level on the glam scale. As a popular element at any Bat Mitzvah, the photo booth was one of Mikaela’s focal points for the party. A green hedge wall was built and framed by lush dahlias, garden roses, and topiary plants to serve as the backdrop for the photos. Below sat a glamorous lounge chair from Revelry Design, accented by custom lip pillows that made for such a girly setting for Mikaela and her besties. No party is complete without a killer dessert display, and this one did not disappoint. Desserts such as fashion-inspired cookies, macaron towers, cake pops, and croquembouche displays sat atop a custom bar with beautiful florals and topiaries.
