We love color and this artist-inspired Bat Mitzvah was such a fun and creative project for our team at Bank Street Events.
As with most events at bank street the main level is left for the kids to takeover, while the adults are catered to on our mezzanine level. Our design incorporated two main elements: a playful and whimsical spin for kids and a sophisticated and elegant energy for the adults.
On the main floor, we brought giant art elements to life with a display of oversized paint brushes and painters’ pallets. Accompanying these traditional art elements were ‘floating’ brushes in bright colors, bringing the art of painting to life on the mantle that served as a backdrop for the dance floor. Our vault was transformed into a studio, with paint splatters adorning the walls and cubbies that held the custom embroidered giveaways for the kids.
We were challenged with connecting the design on the mezzanine to the main level and this allowed us to use similar colors and textures in a completely different way. Above the dance floor, and mezzanine, hung over sized white lanterns that had been splattered with pink, yellow and teal paint which helped connect the playful floor below to the elegant dinner taking place upstairs.
In our boardroom adults enjoyed cocktails and light bites before being introduced to the mezzanine for dinner. In paying homage to an artist’s pallet, each adult dining table was adorned with beautiful monochromatic arrangements of fresh flowers. Yellow, green and pink bunches lined the tables in white paint splattered cans. Custom painted miniature canvases with a whimsical calligraphy served as escor cards and the table numbers, and a bright pop of teal with the napkins finished the tablescape.
Every detail added a big pop of color to this creative celebration, making it any artists dream! We had an amazing experience painting this picture for our client and hope that we've inspired the inner artist in each of you too!
