A Masquerade Bat Mitzvah

Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Sophie unmasked the secret to an amazing Bat Mitzvah celebration with this masquerade-themed party!  Hosted at the gorgeous Van Dusen Mansion in Minneapolis, this Bat Mitzvah bash was full of grand decor and exciting entertainment.

The purple, blue and pink color scheme brought a New Orleans French Quarter feel to the party. Guests dined on an amazing array of foods, from steak and potatoes to a decadent cake. There was certainly no lack of entertainment at this masked affair. A face painter painted on some amazingly detailed disguises for guests, while a DJ kept everyone dancing into the night. After checking out these photos, you'll want to grab a mask and throw a masquerade ball of your own! Thanks to Erin Johnson Photography for sharing this magical event with us.




This theme is awesome for parties of all ages! There's a ton of opportunity for unique entertainment that ties in with the theme, like face painters, circus acts or even a magician. If you're looking to throw your own masquerade ball, or any other event, you know where the party starts!
