Warning: The following post exceeds the recommended daily allowance for vain attempts at making up for one’s prolonged absence with an overwhelming amount of photos. Proceed at your own risk.
As some of you know, we recently celebrated a Shiputzim daughter’s bat mitzvah.
First, she had a small party in school with her friends, and then we had a separate party just for the immediate family.
Here are the
threatened promised photos. (As always, feel free to click on the pictures for a better view.)
The bat mitzvah girl chose spring colors for the decorations:
Note the bat-mitzvah-themed confetti sprinkled in the middle of each table:
The rolls were made by one of the bat mitzvah girl’s grandmothers (aka “She Who Made the Incredible Bundle-of-Wheat Challah for Shavuot”):
As you can see by the screen in the above picture, the program included the requisite video presentation (i.e. a matzeget, for the Hebraically-oriented among you), expertly prepared by our favorite filmmaker.
Dessert included a yummy assortment of homemade treats, such as trifle (made by the bat mitzvah girl’s other grandmother):
Chocolate cake (courtesy of guest blogger Malke) and French coffee cake (which is neither French nor made with coffee – discuss amongst yourselves - recipe to follow, b”n, in a future post):
Cookie “pizza” (credit: one of the bat mitzvah girl’s aunts):
Chocolate chocolate chip bars and chocolate chip sticks:
Except where otherwise specified, all the desserts were made by the talented Shiputzim bakers (known here on the blog as the tza’ir bakers) – including the bat mitzvah girl herself.
Mazal tov to the beautiful bat mitzvah girl, who did an amazing job with her dvar Torah!
We love you!!!!
