Turning 12 or 13 is a big deal in a young person’s life! Plus, it’s a great excuse to party. Looking for a way to top the last “mitzvah” you attended? Check out these 10 creative bar or bat mitzvah party ideas that will fit any theme!
1. Customized Dessert Buffets
Having a specialized food or drink station is a growing trend for bar or bat mitzvah parties, so don’t be left behind! Candy or dessert buffets can easily match theme colors. Caterers can help create a custom menu based on favorite foods or themes, too.
2. Photo Booths
Capture tons of fun memories with a photo booth! Throw in some fun props to match your theme and you’re set. The photos are printable, shareable, and provide a perfect memento for your guests. Teens love selfies, so why not give them what they want?
3. Party DJ
It’s not a party without music, so make sure you get a DJ to keep the beats going all night long. With a DJ playing emcee, you can relax and enjoy the party while your bar or bat mitzvah dances the night away with their friends!
4. LED Performers
Let an amazing LED performer light up the party! These professional performers use hula hoops, wands, and other LED props to put on a truly entertaining show.
5. Airbrush Artist
Airbrush artists can personalize t-shirts, hats, bags, or any other “paintable” object! Send your party guests home with a unique souvenir.
6. Henna Tattoo Artist
Mix a little culture into your bar or bat mitzvah party ideas! A henna tattoo artist can quickly create beautiful art on guests’ hands, feet, or shoulders. Most use organic ingredients so you don’t have to worry about strange chemicals.
7. Circus Acts
To really wow your crowd, try hiring acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, or sideshow acts! These pros really know how to entertain and can usually work with the space available. So sit back and enjoy the show, especially if you’re using a circus theme!
Bring a little magic from under the sea to your party! Great for beach or ocean themes, a mermaid can really make a splash. Mermaids are happy to swim in a pool (if handy) or can perch on dry land. They love taking photos with guests and telling tales of the deep!
9. Fire Entertainment
Nothing is more exciting than fire! Whether you prefer fire dancing or eating, it’s sure to impress. Fire entertainers like poi dancers are perfect for Hawaiian or luau themes. (Be sure to check with your venue before booking fire entertainment.)
Do you know any teens who don’t love exaggerating? That’s why a caricaturist is the perfect party entertainment! They only need a chair and can provide a personalized drawing for each of your party guests.
