Tips for an Amazing B’nai Mitzvah Party

As a child, I remember Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties being the highlight of my weekends during seventh grade. The parties were always the best! At mine and other parties, I remember amazing music, entertainment — even a chocolate fountain!

Of course nowadays, Bar or Bat Mitzvah parties are bigger and better than ever — much more elaborate than when I was a kid. If you’re planning a Bat Mitzvah party, here are some tips to make your child’s party stand out from the rest.

Two Words: Dessert Bar

Everyone loves being to control what they eat — the days of sitting down and waiting for a waiter to bring you your meal at a fancy party are done. Now people love buffets that allow their guests to customize their meal to their own satisfaction. Usually, however, there are limited options for desserts. Incorporating a dessert bar at your bar or bat mitzvah party would be a great way to switch it up.

Luckily, this is a relatively simple thing to incorporate into your party. All you need is a table filled with your favorite desserts — anything from cakes, cookies, and pies — and more. To truly make your party unique, you should try to bring in desserts not commonly served at parties. Think frozen yogurt, ‘pizookies’, and even actual candies like Ring Pops, Gumballs, and M & M’s!

Surprise Venue

An easy way to switch things up would be to hold your event at a unique venue. You might think this sounds crazy, but a yacht is a super cool place to hold your party.

I ran across this company, Anita Dee Yacht Charter, that can hold events on yachts — which would be a super cool thing to do for a B’nai Mitzvah party. Your party would truly be the talk of the town for weeks following. Plus, if your event is in the summertime, you and your friends may be able to take a dip in the water!

Theme, theme, theme!

Choosing a cool theme for your party is another super-easy way to make your special day truly special. Of course, you don’t want to copy anyone else’s theme — that would defeat the purpose. You should pick a theme that is more than just a color scheme — it should be something truly meaningful to you.

Cool ideas for themes could be something based off your favorite movie (mine would totally be a West Side Story theme), a theme based around your favorite singer (mine would be Lady Gaga, of course), or even one based off of one of your favorite books (Harry Potter is an obvious, but amazing choice.)

Picking one of these themes will make your party personal and centered around — which it should be! It’s your special day after all.

I had an amazing Bat Mitzvah party, but if I were to do it again — I would definitely follow these tips! I hope these help you — and Mazel Tov!
