Bat Mitzvah Centerpieces, sparkling and upcycled

On Sunday, my niece Emma had a beautiful Bat Mitzvah party for her friends.   A couple of weeks ago, my sister-in-law, Suzy, dropped off some materials that she had bought in New York City and I agreed to arrange them for this exciting party.

I repurposed different shaped containers from our recyclables, sprayed them with metallic paint and filled them with sand.  I then purchased some large foam E’s and attached them to skewers sprayed with metallic paint.  I arranged the branches that Suzy had brought, separating them by color and adding the skewered E to the center of each arrangement.  Voila!

Oh…and then as an afterthought, we decided to add a few lower centerpieces and one with Emma’s name for the sign in board area. I sprayed some tissue boxes with the same metallic paint and glued some of the sparkly embellishments and a foam letter E to each box.

The party was just perfect.  Here are how the centerpieces turned out…
