Daniel’s Outer Space Bar Mitzvah Party at Rock Creek Mansion

It was wonderful working with Daniel’s family for his out of this world, outer space Bar Mitzvah party at Rock Creek Mansion in Bethesda, Maryland. The venue was the perfect backdrop for a glowing night of Israeli dancing, more dancing, games and out of this world fun. Daniel loves science and outer space, but didn’t want it to feel too theme-y. Our awesome team of vendors was able to deliver!

Pop Color Events 2017 Year in Review

Another big year for Pop Color Events is in the books! It’s been a doozy! Business is booming and I’m even more excited for 2018, 2019 and beyond!

The year started slow, as January often does, but by February things were cooking! I celebrated a globally-inspired Bar Mitzvah at Temple Rodef Shalom.

Then in March was Olivia’s colorful, balloon filled Bat Mitzvah party at the Hyatt Regency Dulles.

April brought Tara’s under the sea Bat Mitzvah party in Woodbridge, Virginia. Then May followed up with twins! Cori and Spencer’s B’nai Mitzvah party in Beltsville, Maryland was too cool for school with an edgy venue and graffiti-inspired decor.

A busy summer brought new changes to my business with integrating new CRM systems and streamlining how I handle new inquiries.

August was my farthest Mitzvah yet! I drove all the way to Fredrick, Virginia to Belle Grove Plantation, a beautiful venue on the water. The weather was gorgeous for Michaela and Jacob’s outdoor dance party.

September was crazy with 3 back to back Mitzvahs, each one so different from the others, even though two were at the same venue!

There was Jake’s hockey-themed Bar Mitzvah party at Pinstripes Georgetown.

And Lily’s luau Bat Mitzvah party was also at Pinstripes Georgetown. I love how different the same space can look with the right lighting and decor!

Also in September was Shoshana’s sparkly silver and blue Bat Mitzvah at Rock Creek Mansion in Bethesda. Following that busy September, was a slightly slower October with my first repeat client. Maya’s Bat Mitzvah was sophisticated and heartfelt at Temple Sinai in DC.

Followed by a gorgeous around the world Bat Mitzvah for Gabriela in December. Photos still to come!

Thank you to all of my wonderful clients for an amazing year.

Cheers to 2017! Looking forward to a very full 2018! My calendar is quickly filling up, so if you’re interested in working with Pop Color Events, please contact me ASAP!

Lily’s Luau Bat Mitzvah Party at Pinstripes Georgetown DC

I had such a fun time working with Lily’s family for her festive Luau Bat Mitzvah party. Their laid-back vibe fit perfectly with the beachy, rustic, natural look they were going for. I find that families who choose Pinstripes as their venue, just want to have fun and boy did they! The family and their guests were dressed in their Hawaiian finest and were ready to party.

Lily’s Luau Lounge was an awesome place for the kids to hang out with its beach chair seating, comfy pallet sofa and high sharing tables with bar stools.

Stunning tropical flowers and leaves filled this party. My favorite were the centerpieces with flowers inside a pineapple. So tropical!

Guests of all ages wore flower crowns created onsite.

There were so many Hawaiian touches like the post cards which were used as a sign in for guests.

It was a pleasure to work with this family for Lily’s Bat Mitzvah party and they were pretty happy too:

The best decision we made was hiring Brynne to guide us with the bat mitzvah planning process. She kept us on schedule and her suggestions for decor, DJ, lighting, furniture, and flowers were spot on. Without her, the process/event would have been a complete disaster.

Thanks to the awesome vendors who helped make it happen and mazel tov to Lily and her family!

Jake’s Hockey Bar Mitzvah at Pinstripes Georgetown, Washington DC

I loved working with Jake and his family for his hockey-themed Bar Mitzvah Party at Pinstripes Georgetown. They are my favorite type of clients–they knew what they wanted, they appreciated my help and guidance and most of all, they wanted to have a really, really fun party. The venue was the perfect location for his low-key, Labor Day Bar Mitzvah celebration.

The evening started with cocktails for the adults and delicious snacks, bowling and bocce for all!

After that, we went upstairs when the real partying began! The room looked stunning with red uplighting and centerpieces featuring lights, hockey sticks, hockey pucks and Jake’s logo. Some tables had hockey skates and others had hockey helmets as part of the centerpiece base. Each table also had a photo of Jake at various ages playing hockey which served as the table number.

Guests loved the seating chart which was shaped like a hockey ice rink with jerseys on top. The jerseys were removable and served as escort cards, directing guests to their table number.

I always love a good hora and this was one of the funniest ones I’ve ever been part of! With the low ceilings at Pinstripes, one of the guests had the bright idea to take a hockey helmet from a centerpiece and give it to Jake (and the rest of the family) to prevent hora-related head injuries. Hilarious!

It was a pleasure to work with this family for Jake’s Bar Mitzvah party and they were pretty happy too:

Brynne is super easy to work with, detail oriented and on top of everything. She is creative and will help you come up with a great theme, find you vendors that work with your personalities, provide the services you want and in your budget. Most importantly, Brynne was someone I could completely trust. I knew she had our best interests in mind when making decisions about the party. Our son had a clear vision of what he wanted and she never tried to convince him to do anything he didn’t want to do- instead she worked with him to provide the perfect party for him. We were impressed with how Brynne handled coordinating with all the vendors in the weeks leading up to the party. I felt super confident that Brynne had everything handled, so I took her advice and just enjoyed every minute of the party. We couldn’t be happier with Brynne and will be using her again for our other son’s bar mitzvah party.

Cori and Spencer’s B’nai Mitzvah in Beltsville, MD

I had so much fun working with Cori and Spencer’s family on their B’nai Mitzvah party at Fox Ventures (now closed) in Beltsville, MD. The family was hysterical and kept me laughing and very well fed throughout the planning process! They wanted an urban club/lounge vibe that would be appropriate for both a boy and a girl. We utilized lavender and midnight blue, mixing the soft and feminine with the gritty and more masculine to tie in the personalities of both of the twins. The warehouse venue with black draping also mixed the soft and gritty. The contrast was really cool.

Aren’t they the cutest family? I love how happy they all look in this photo.

The focal point of the room was an 8′ tall DJ booth with Cori and Spencer’s logo suspended from it. It was a major wow factor and guests kept saying that they’d never seen anything like it before.

A fully stocked 12-foot bar covered in graffiti lent itself to the urban club-feel.

A step and repeat tied together all 3 event logos–one for each twin plus a joint logo.

Unique and yummy desserts were a huge hit! Edible cookie dough shots and bites plus liquid nitrogen ice cream kept the crowd coming back for more.

Olivia’s Colorful Bat Mitzvah at Hyatt Regency Dulles

Olivia and her family were just about the sweetest folks you could imagine (plus they had a major sweet tooth… check out the candy bar!). They chose a colorful palate that encouraged guests to “Liv it up” at the Hyatt Regency Dulles. I love the jewel tones, tassels, oversized balloons and color, color, color!

Olivia’s Dad made the escort card holder and the family made all of the colorful tasseled escort cards. With the balloon accents, that was such a statement piece and guests loved taking their photos in front!

The adult side of the room had different colored balloons with ribbon or tassels, plus intentionally mismatched napkins and chair sashes.

The kids sat at a horseshoe-shaped table with the same balloons, napkins and chair sashes as the adults.

There were 23 different types of candy at the candy bar, just the right number for my sweet tooth! Each glass jar was accented with colorful ribbon and a label.

Lexi’s Dog Bat Mitzvah Party at Westin Tysons Corner

I was so pleased with how everything turned out for Lexi’s purple, dog-themed Bat Mitzvah party at Westin Tysons Corner. Lexi’s mom put so much thought into all of the details and it really showed. Even though they were unable to physically attend the event, Lexi’s family dogs made an appearance in the decor. There were so many photos of the dogs and Lexi with her dogs used throughout the night! Below are just a few of my favorite photos from the Bat Mitzvah party. Maryland Photo/Video had so many great ones!

Guests started by choosing their sparkly dog bone escort cards telling them to “Sit.”

The kids loved lounging in their own area with this comfy and elegant furniture

The centerpieces were dogs made out of flowers. Each dog was totally unique and guests loved looking at each of the tables.

Lexi did a candle lighting ceremony with this beautiful arrangment.

Favors were pillows that had her logo on it (love that dot on the “i”!) that were then airbrushed with designs of the guests’ choice.

It was a pleasure to work with this family for Lexi’s Bat Mitzvah party and they were pretty happy too:

I hired Brynne and Pop Color Events to help me with the day of my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah party. After working with a different event planner for my son’s Bar Mitzvah, I was skeptical and pretty negative on the help that I would actually receive. I was blown away by Brynne’s organization, assistance and calm demeanor during the week of finalizing details to the day of the event!  I had many details and personal “props” to display for my 200 guests. I filled two SUVs with materials for the party! Along with verbal reassurance that everything would go smoothly, what really helped me calm down and put the reigns in Pop Color’s hands was Brynne’s hands-on approach. She attended the meeting I had with the DJ, she attended the meeting I had with the venue sales and event managers, she assisted me with the unloading of my personal party items, and she spent hours making a detailed inventory list of everything to be sure she not only knew where everything was, but also the inventory was complete. Her actions, more than her words showed that she truly had the party under control. Whether you hire an event planner to help with all of the details or just would like help with the day events, make sure you ask these very important questions: 1) do you attend meetings with some of my vendors and if so, which vendors? 2) how do you organize and will you assist with whatever personal items I have for party (e.g., candlelighting poems, candy bar items, place cards, etc.) and 3) what time will you arrive the day of the party? If the answer to the first question is “no” or the answer to the last question is “an hour before the party begins”, find another planner!  Brynne with Pop Color Events is a complete service from start to finish that will allow you to truly enjoy your guests and the day you’ve spent months (or years) planning!

Lindsey’s Book and Pink Bat Mitzvah Party at DoubleTree Bethesda

I loved working with Lindsey’s family to put together her pink, book-themed Bat Mitzvah party at DoubleTree Bethesda. It was feminine, literary and just plain fun! Lindsey and her mom had a vision and Pop Color Events made it happen with a team of awesome vendors. We can’t wait to work on younger brother Ryan’s Bar Mitzvah in 2019!

The Centerpieces

Oversized pink, silver and glitter-filled balloons had a base of books. Each table was named for a different author–from J.K. Rowling to Stephan King to Dr. Seuss and more.

The Book Tassels

Bookmark shaped escort cards with pink tassels directed guests where to sit.

More tassels in shades of pink and silver were on the bar…

… and surrounding the stairway up to the cocktail area.

The Logo

I loved how feminine Lindsey’s logo was with the pretty script, books and just a touch of bling.

The Dance Floor

… and the other end of the dance floor had Lindsey’s name in giant balloon letters.

 

The Mitzvah Project

As part of her Mitzvah project, Lindsey collected books from her guests which were later donated, along with the books from the centerpieces. Lindsey’s friends and family were very generous with their donations!

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you and your crew did at Lindsey’s bat mitzvah.  The whole day went without a single glitch and we know how hard you worked to pull that off.  God even knows about all the things that went on behind the scenes that my wife and I will probably never even know about.  It was an honor to have our event in your hands on our special day!  Thank you so much for all of your hard work, care, and attention to detail that made everything come together so well!

–Lindsey’s Dad

Thanks also to all of the vendors who helped make this special day pop!

Lena’s Dance and Purple Bat Mitzvah at Hilton Washington DC North / Gaithersburg

I LOVED working with Lena’s family for her purple and dance inspired Bat Mitzvah at Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg. The family could not have been any sweeter and Lena’s dance friends rocked it on the dance floor! Below are some shots from Anthony Marill Photography of the decor by Pattie Kim of Balloons and Decor.

Lena’s mom had been saving her dance costumes for years and finally found a good use for them… these awesome centerpieces! Each table was named after a different style of dance with one of Lena’s dance costumes proudly displayed.

Some of the costumes were teeny tiny and from when Lena was as young as 3!

Oversized balloons hanging from the ceiling and purple uplighting created a really dramatic look.

It was a pleasure working with this family and it sounds like they were pretty happy also!

Brynne knew the answers to my questions before I even asked them. She had an amazing spreadsheet to keep me organized for invitations, guest lists, hotel reservations, gifts and thank you notes etc. She reviewed all of our contracts and caught details that I didn’t and helped us avoid some potential issues. On the night of my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, I didn’t have to worry about anything and knew that Brynne and her assistant were available for any issues. For instance, my son lost a button on his jacket during pictures and we could fix it immediately. The MC at one point got a little off schedule and Brynne made sure that everything else flowed easily through the evening. No one noticed but us.
-Lena’s Mom

Thanks to the awesome vendors who helped Lena and her family have a Bat Mitzvah party to remember!
