“A dream you dream alone is only a dream.
A dream you dream together is reality.”
This quote from John Lennon could not have been more fitting for Blake’s British Invasion themed Bat Mitzvah at the William Penn Inn in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Blake truly made her British dream come true that day. The entire room was decorated from floor to ceiling, in a display that would have made the Queen herself proud. From posters of the Beatles, James Bond and the Rolling Stones, to small Union Jacks on every table, the party could not have felt more English. One of Blake’s relatives (who lives in England…where else?) made the trip, and wore her British flag themed shoes to the event. Even the cake was dressed to the nines with British flags. The party was taken to the next level by the appearance of a European glass blower that stayed the entire evening creating Beatles necklaces, miniature horses, and other intricate, hand-made glass souvenirs for the party goers to take home.
Blake was so energetic, and her fun-loving demeanor was contagious all afternoon. She made sure to stand out, as she could be found frolicking around the party in her bright pink dress. The moment the music started, she jumped out on the dance floor. The adults and kids followed suit, and the party rocked for the rest of the day.
Blake even got in on leading the party, as she jumped up front with the dancers and showed off her moves to the delight of the crowd. Her and her friends were not shy about grabbing the microphone and singing right along with the music. Blake is a huge music fanatic, so the party was filled with everything from the Jackson 5, Beatles, David Guetta and all other types of artists. The adults only stopped to eat, while enjoying a high paced game of Coke & Pepsi. The kids didn’t stop all afternoon, as they danced until the party was over.
What an incredible party to be a part of, from the decorations, to the glass blower, to the awesome people. The party flew by so fast, because I think that the staff was having as much fun as the guests! Thank you to the staff at William Penn Inn, and to Susan Beard for the always-stunning photos!
