Fun at the Aquarium: Purple & White Bat Mitzvah

March was a full month, finding me with a bat mitzvah, 2 weddings, a 60th birthday and a case of influenza. April isn't quite as busy, however I do have a few fun events in the works that I'll update you on soon. In the meantime, I will try and recap all of the fabulousness that was March, and starting with one of my all time favourite events.

I was brought into the picture a little later on for this incredible bat mitzvah at the Vancouver Aquarium. The host wanted me to pull everything together for the big day and design TWO incredibly fun candy bars. The first, and my favourite, was a purple and white scheme that I'm sure any girly girl would swoon over if not for the candy at least for the colours and pretty details. The second, a fun and whimsical aquarium candy bar. I didn't have too much time to pull it off, but it came together beautifully and was a big hit with kids and adults alike! On top of the incredible venue (watching the dolphins swim around outside in the moonlight was spectacular) and the fun candy bars, what made this event even more to die for were the wonderful vendors involved. After being acquainted with them at the Aisle Walk Magazine Launch Party, I was thrilled to get to work alongside Jane and her hubby of Pixstar Photobooth as well as Daniela of Daniella Ciuffa Photography. I was also introduced to the incredible work of DJ Jordan of Beyond Sound (such a fitting name, because their service truly was beyond sound) and the magical entertainment of the Underground Circus that wowed guests with contortion and aerial performances a la Cirque de Soliel. There were 7 lounge areas for guests to mingle and take in the gorgeous sights of the aquarium with stunning lounge furniture from FIreworks Event Rentals. Guests took away 2 favors- seeded purple paper cards (just plant the card and watch your pretty flowers grow!) and incredibly detailed and very tasty custom cookies. The show stopping flowers which filled every square inch of the Aquarium with their pink and purple glory would done by the talented team at Grandville Island Florists, and the delectable sushi stations that complimented the catering were put on by Zen Sushi.
