5 Tips for Planning a Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party

Bar/bat mitzvah party ideasYour child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a unique milestone. It’s not just a celebration, but a rite of passage that is steeped in culture, history, and wrapped in the roots of your heritage.

But it’s also something else… It’s a celebration! It’s meant to be a fun event; a once-in-a-lifetime birthday. Because of that you want to do all you can to make sure your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah party is perfect and unforgettable.

5 Steps to Make Your Child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah Celebration Amazing

As you plan, here are a few ideas to keep in mind:
  • Pick a great theme – Let’s hit pause for just a second: remember that, as a parent, your definition of “great theme” and your child’s might not, well, exactly line up. It is well worth it to proceed with caution and make sure that the theme is one that the kids will all enjoy.

  • Awesome invitations – This is a celebration for sure, but there also should be some sense of formality. Try to avoid e-invites alone (although they could be used as a creative supplement), choosing instead to go the traditional, classy route of real invitations.

  • Think about transportation – Few things throw a wet blanket on a party as successfully as your child’s friends not being able to make it to the celebration. Create a pre-Bar/Bat Mitzvah transportation strategy so that parents aren’t left scrambling, and no kids are left out.

  • “Surprise” with caution – If you are having any surprise activities or events during the celebration, please make sure that you are completely positive that it is something your child will really enjoy. Sometimes the most well-intentioned ideas can be a little embarrassing in the eyes of our kids. Why not bounce the idea off one of your child’s friends, provided they can be trusted with the secret?

  • Not all venues are created equal! – Take the time to be sure that your venue both matches the need of your party as well the theme. A centrally-located, quality environment that will meet all of your needs is key.
