Coming of Age Summer Bat Mitzvah

Please enjoy these photos by Belathee Photography, who were on hand to capture the true coming of age ceremony for this young lady’s Bat Mitzvah. The event truly focused on family and those in the community that took part in shaping and guiding the young guest of honor. The festivities of the day carried the message of investing in community, with catering provided by Herban Feast, using Washington State local produce and ingredients. The floral arrangements, provided by Metropolitan Market, also featured locally available, vibrant flowers and greens. Guests enjoyed live music, an accessory abundant photo booth and a playful DIY sundae bar. The mixed use of indoor and outdoor space took advantage of the perfect August weather in Seattle!Aliya Blog 5Aliya Blog 9Aliya Blog 8Aliya Blog 6Aliya Blog 3Aliya Blog 2Aliya Blog 7Aliya Blog 1Aliya Blog 4

Confetti Bar!


Written by stephanie | Birthday, Crafts, Gifts and Favors, Paper Goods, Weddings

We here at Solomon Event Planning love ourselves a good Candy Bar, a Cupcake Station, we’ve even been known to craft a delicious Hot Cocoa Bar and we highly recommend any interactive display where your ¬†guests and loved ones can get in on the fun. We find our signature Candy Bars, often color coordinated to compliment the event’s theme, make for beautiful photo backdrops, add to the decor of the party and make for a great conversation piece.

Recently we stumbled on a fabulous new idea we are dying to try out, a custom Confetti Bar! While perfect for a New Years Eve Party, a Confetti Bar would be beautiful for a wedding, with guests throwing glitter and paper cutouts into the air as the bride and groom exit the reception, or to add to the excitement of a surprise Birthday party. Please someone give us an excuse to make our own soon, we promise to clean up our mess!


Santa Barbara Wedding

We feel so lucky to be able to travel for events, and this particular out of town wedding has an extra special place in our hearts. Set in beautiful Santa Barbara, California, friends and family (including us!) came from all over the U.S. to share a sun and celebratory filled weekend as Meghan and Jason tied the knot. Taking inspiration from the Montecito Country Club ‘s sprawling lush grounds, we played with plummy charcoals and metallics with soft petal, peach and ivory tones for florals and accents. The warmth of the sunset ceremony carried over into a candlelight flooded reception. Enjoy the photos by Patrick Moyer below!

Creative Cookies


Written by stephanie | Bar Mitzvah, Birthday, Food, Gifts and Favors

While we cherish all our weddings, we also plan quite a few social and corporate events each year. We find that birthday parties, anniversaries and mitzvahs really bring out a creative side when planning the celebration. Photos and photo booths are such a big trend and fun activity at events, and these cookies below are not only delicious, but compliment that concept. Why not offer themed cookies to use as edible accessories in your next photo booth, to pass out Emoticon cookies to your guests like your sending them personal text messages, or even incorporate your favorite Instagram moments, printed on personalized cookie-grams?

A few other fun, inspiring ideas: Calendar cookies to represent the significance of a birthdate, or anniversary. Make different batches that mark the day you and your loved one met, your wedding date, when you bought a home together, commemorating significant moments in your lives together. And how cute are these cookies complete milk glass perch? Lastly, cookies designed to look like s’mores (we hope they taste like them too!) are a fun teaser, and less messy than the real thing!
