We were given the most amazing opportunity when Faye & Madeleine’s family came to us early this year: Plan and design a bat mitzvah celebration for twins and their 275 guests at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park. We set out to create a simple, elegant dinner on the lawn for the adults, and a “Stranger Things” inspired nightclub for the teens. We were inspired by the beauty of the Rosewood, the challenge of creating two unique spaces for so many guests, and the unique decor elements of “Stranger Things.” Along with a Dream Team of creative vendors, we designed every aspect of the decorations, flowers, and special effects you see here. Once again, Andrea topped off our designs with floral centerpieces that were delicate, magical, and smelled amazing! We hope you enjoy the results as much as we did!
Adult Dinner on the Vista Lawn:
“Stranger Things” Inspired Nightclub for Everyone!
Details: woodsy centerpieces with bare branches and moss – creepy trees with hanging lights – Xmas lights to communicate with Will! – custom “Stranger Things” pillows and 80’s inspired lounges – personalized flashlights – custom airbrush tattoos – themed backdrops at the green screen photo booth – a visit from a Hawkins lab scientist and high school principal – a telepathic experiment with renowned magician Heather Rogers to “Connect with the Upside Down” – and a DJ that rocked the night!
