Bar/Bat Mitzvah Birthday DIY Decorating

It's been just over one year since our first born's Bat Mitzvah. It was a wonderful experience for all of our family and friends! We saved a lot of money with some classy DIY decorations! Here are some of my favorite crafts from the reception...
place cards: lollipops, labels, styrofoam block covered with fabric using spray adhesive

custom cake from with candle lighting centerpiece made from glass votives, vellum printed using inkjet printer, and Mickey Mouse paper punches using aluminum foil instead of paper... 

table set up - fabric wrapped glass floral cylinders (using Xyron permanent adhesive), vellum printed using inkjet printer and wrapped around glass votive, submersible LED lights, and custom chocolates - all on a black tablecloth - huge fan of the black - I was afraid it would look dark, but it was so incredibly elegant looking!

kids tables set up - also against a black tablecloth - perfect!

I was so pleased with how the alcove was transformed into the perfect kids area!
