Bat Mitzvah Bash! Recounting Jordyn’s Big Night

Aug 15

We love helping our guests’ visions come to life. Whether that be an enlightening conference, or the dream wedding you’ve pictured since childhood, Chubb Hotel is here for you. Over the years, our spaces have hosted many stunning and unique events. One of our recent favorites was a Bat Mitzvah reception that we hosted in May.

We could go on gushing about the décor alone, but that wouldn’t do this Enchanted Forest justice. Instead let us show you.

Let’s start at the beginning. When guests arrived, they were greeted by a personalized escort card inserted into delicious Macarons made by our very own Garces Events Pastry Chef.

The Bat Mitzvah girl herself, Jordyn, and her family are huge fans of Macarons and often make them at home and wanted to incorporate the family favorite into the festivities.

The cocktail reception featured station menu favorites. Just thinking about those Distrito Ceviche and the wide array of hors d’oeuvres are making our mouths water.

Dinner featured delectable entrées including Beef Tenderloin, Ricotta Risotto, Edamame Puree and more. And our stomachs are rumbling.

The team from Evantine Design provided the beautiful event décor and table settings. Each table featured custom linens, and the floral displays were constructed to surround rustic tree trunks. Not to mention all of the truss and moss strewn about to really give our ballroom that true Enchanted Forest feeling.

Evantine Design worked with Jordyn to include a number of her original artwork as part of the table decoration, adding a personal touch. Each numbered table sign was adorned with handcrafted forest animals. These cuties are some of our favorites.

What’s a party without sweets? A unique activity for the kids was the Candy Man. The candy artisan himself, Shinobu Ichiyanagi (aka The Candy Man), has spent years perfecting this Japanese craft of amezaiku. The beautiful candy creatures handmade in front of the guests were suspended from trees for the kids to select from.


For dessert, Evantine Design styled an elaborate candy and dessert bar and Garces Events whipped up specialty milkshakes.



If that wasn’t enough to satisfy a guest’s sweet tooth, then the cake was sure to be a crowd pleaser. Crafted by RL Cake Design, this four-tiered masterpiece took weeks to create and several hours to orchestrate on the day of Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah.
