Pop Color Year in Review

2018 In Review

It’s hard to believe another year of Pop Color Events is in the books! We’re so thankful to have worked with so many wonderful families–some for the second time around! It’s always so humbling and wonderful to be a part of such a special day and we were part of a lot of them this year… We also had lots of professional recognition and helped to build a strong network of Bar and Bat Mitzvah vendors in the DC/Baltimore area. It was a busy year and we still have to blog about some of the Mitzvahs from later in the year. So until then, enjoy a few sneak peeks…

Our year started slow but then in February we got rolling and it didn’t stop! We celebrated our first second-time-around family of the year with Oliver’s bright breakfast Bar Mitzvah party at B’nai Israel in Rockville.

Then it was on to David’s sporty Bar Mitzvah at Adas Israel in DC with an incredible 360 bar and our first vendor networking group of the year with over 50 attendees hosted by Washington Talent Agency.

November was our final vendor meet up of the year at Badlands in Rockville. Then we closed out the year in November with Talia’s polka dot filled Bat Mitzvah at Temple Sinai in DC. Pictures to come!

Brynne was published once again in Mitzvah Market Magazine, won the Best of Washington from Washington Jewish Week and was published on togathr. Thanks to all of our clients, vendor team for such a fabulous, busy and successful year.

Cheers to 2018! Looking forward to a very full 2019! Our calendar is quickly filling up, so if you’re interested in working with Pop Color Events in 2019, 2020 or beyond, please contact us ASAP!
