Candy Couture: Nicole’s Bat Mitzvah

From inception to completion, Showplace Floral & Event Design revamped the prestigious Paramount Theater in Huntington, N.Y. for this swoon-worthy “candy couture” inspired Bat Mitzvah. This incredible venue has been home to performers such as Billy Joel, comedienne Whoopi Goldberg, and eight-time Grammy Award winner Lauryn Hill.

Transforming the client’s ambitious visions into stunning visuals, from the marquee to the sweet table, showcased a divine story originating from the idea of using candy instead of fabric to make fashion.

Guests were greeted with the Bat Mitzvah girl’s logo decaled on the front door and introduced to a chevron pattern that linked the decor throughout the entire event.

The Escort table exhibited an array of licorice and flowers along with pink hand-painted spools of thread featuring the name of each guest and where they were to be seated. The lobby was personalized with photos of the guest of honor on the billboards and the coat check was cleverly created to look like her very own boutique. Kids in attendance got VIP passes to go upstairs while the adults went on the Founder’s Room.

Inside the Founder’s Room, the bar front was fitted with a custom tufted pink façade. The cocktail tables had Pucci-inspired print table covers and illuminated rock candy centerpieces.

The Showplace team also designed and dressed three mannequins with old fashioned dot candy, gum drops, gummy worms and rock candy, each displayed on custom branded pedestals throughout the room. Lush florals in shades of pink adorned each guest table atop a sparkling silver sequin cloth.

Hundreds of neon color slinkies in different lengths suspended from The Paramount light truss over the dance floor came alive when the dancing started.

The guests were treated to a delectable, beautifully curated candy display with pink and turquoise chevron take away bags to complement the logo.

A sweet treat for all the guests

Every piece perfectly came together to accentuate the creativity behind the inspiration. From the vibrantly colored and whimsical balloon arch entrance to the epic rock candy centerpieces, partygoers were dazzled and immersed in a deliciously sweet fashion fantasy that left a lasting smile on everyone’s face.
