The One with the LAPP Bat Mitzvah


Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Amy Tan has been hooking me up with some pretty sweet scrapbooking opportunities as of late. For instance, last Saturday night I had the privilege of scrapbooking on the scene with LA Photo Party (LAPP) at a Bat Mitzvah. Let's just say, it must be nice to have that much money. The theme was Alice in Wonderland and I was awed, for lack of a better word, by EVERYTHING. From the house to the food to the oxygen bar and fake eyelash booth - no joke... Before anybody arrived, Cindy (Amy's cousin) and I hopped in front of the white backdrop and took some silly pictures.

And here's the backyard-turned-magical-wonderland:

Those large black and white lamp things are outdoor heaters. Genius!

There was a gyro bar, corn dog/doughnut bar, pizza bar, bar bar...

I loved the "mat hatter" antique style furniture:

The dance floor. I didn't get my groove thang on, that would have been a sight to see.

These paper flowers are neato.

Swanky chandeliers.

Here was the neck of the woods, (so to speak - the backyard was quite massive), where LAPP set up their gear:

This was "my" area where LAPP would hand over the photos and Cindy and I would scrapbook them.

OMG the dessert bar was INSANE.

Edible glitter? I've never heard of or seen it before, but apparently it exists.

It was fun to be a part of something so big and special and rich and extravagant.
I ended up getting lost on the way home (one of my recurring dreams is getting lost on freeways, so it was really scary to have my dream (or rather nightmare) come true in such a big and daunting place like LA). So I got off the next exit, started crying cuz I was panicking, said a little prayer, miraculously found my car phone charger which had been lost in the car for months, and was able to navigate myself home. Alls well that ends well :)
