Emma’s Bat Mitzvah

The Farber family knows how to celebrate. I’m not just referring to the lovely, elegant parties they throw – this family knows the importance of infusing ritual and history into their special occasions. Throughout the three day celebration that comprised Emma’s bat mitzvah, family and friends were invited to participate in readings, and song. Emma was regaled with toasts from her guests; some sweet and touching, some so funny, they had everyone doubled over from laughter. Each element, like the kiddush cup or whimple had an interesting story and history.

The bat mitzvah reached it’s peak with the most chic kid’s party I’ve ever seen. It was dubbed the Snow Ball and it was a wonderland of icy hues.

Emma’s love of horses was evident everywhere, from the table settings, to one of the most adorable cakes I’ve ever seen. A lucite horse and carriage awaited guests at the entrance of the party with a photographer snapping photos. A gentle “snow” fall rained on guests as they left the party with cups of hot white chocolate in hand.

The Snow Ball took place at El Caballero Country Club. The adorable cakes were made at Hansen’s Cakes. The cake pops came via Vanilla Bake Shop and Anne Barnett of Hold the Date made sure every detail was picture perfect.
