Mitzvah Bash | Pittsburgh | Rhaina Taylor Photography

Mitzvah Bash 2017 | Ace Hotel Pittsburgh 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being apart of the Mitzvah planning event of the year, Mitzvah Bash. This free event was put together by the creative teams at Perfectly Planned by Shari and Eventful. Both ballrooms of the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh were splashed with colorful inspiration. Guests were invited to sample delicious food and deserts from a number of vendors while casually gathering ideas for their upcoming Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. There were activities for the kids like roulette and wii sports. Personalized gifts made to order. Did you know you can have customs socks designed for your Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Or a magic show? And of course live entertainment from 2 of the industry’s best companies. There was even a scavenger hunt for the kids. Mitzvah Bash had something for everyone!

Shari and Theresa you did an amazing job. Thank you for including me in this incredible event!

Marabella Event Rental is responsible for this colorful custom printed candy bar design. And Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop provided all of the sugary goodness.

Just a few of the dancers from Glyde Productions.

A vendor lounge was provided so guests could gather information about the numerous vendors. And look at that… the 1st Annual Pittsburgh Bar and Bat Mitzvah Magazine  by Rhaina Taylor Photography is proudly displayed! A shameless plug on my part, lol!
