The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Party Planning

Posted in Uncategorized by Juliet on October 18, 2010

I am ping-ponging between cramming Hebrew and throwing a party. Frankly the constant shifting gears is making me a little schizophrenic.

One big help is the fact that I chose a very all-inclusive venue, Gershon Bachus on Temecula’s De Portola Wine Trail.

GBV produces terrific wines. I tasted them a couple of months ago and am looking forward to doing some wine tasting their later this fall.

And their chef, Adrian, just opened his own restaurant, Sorrel, here in town.

That leaves: music; flowers; cake; guests (guest list, invitations, seating); and what to wear. I’m sure I’m forgetting something major.

“Guests” is in progress, thanks to a local friend who is making invitations for me. I have a lead on someone to call for flowers. I’ll probably bring music to plug into an ipod. I don’t think we’re having dancing, but I want something on in the background. And maybe I should have dancing after all. Glee? Hava Nagila?

I also have a lead on cake. My preferred bakery does pastries too so I might get creative…and if dessert is good, and the wine is pouring nicely, everyone is going to have a terrific time.
