Turning 13 and entering the age of adulthood is a big deal. In the Jewish community, it also means it’s time to celebrate! Whether you’re throwing a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party, we have some ways to make it unforgettable.
Of course you’ll want to consult with the guest of honor, but themes are always fun when throwing a Bar or Bat Mitzvah! Think about some of their favorite things to build your theme. Easy “boy” theme ideas might include sports, cars, favorite movies, or even just favorite colors. For girls, try a Hollywood premiere, candy, circus, or favorite colors. Party stores have aisles of themed decorations, tableware, and other accessories to make the decorating a snap. If all else fails, balloons, tissue paper pom-poms or paper lanterns, and streamers in bright colors are simple and cute decorations.
Food and Drink
You can always theme your food as well, but some things will work no matter what. Some people have a big formal meal, while others lay out an appetizer table. It all depends on budget and your own party plan. Either way, try a Caterer to make things a little easier on yourself! Also, Candy and Dessert Buffet Companies can set up something sweet that matches your theme. A root beer float bar or a mocktail bar are other fun additions to the party!
Possibilities are endless in the entertainment department. Photo Booths are classic party staples. Just provide the props and you’re set. If your guest of honor is a pop culture addict, try bringing in a Celebrity Impersonator like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, or Justin Beiber! For a bigger production, try an Aerialist, Fire Dancers, or a Circus Show. Party Bands or DJs can keep everyone grooving all night, or Magicians can keep them amazed.
Whatever you choose, your Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is going to be hit. (And 13 will be the best year yet!)
