As guests arrived, DJ Paul Madden from A Goodtime DJs entertained Amy and her friends with games and music and lots of prizes. Adults and kids alike had the option to get a henna tattoo from Henna Designer Jumana Bootwala. This was a highlight for many people, including the Bat Mitzvah girl!
After dinner, we heard a brief toast from Amy's dad, followed by a beautifully edited slideshow, told in the voice of the family dog. It was cute, funny, and very sweet. Amy then led a candle lighting ceremony, calling up groups of family and friends to light candles with her. Then the dance party truly began with adults and kids crowding the dance floor while the DJ kept the tunes spinning.
