Shall we?

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Planning Tip #1: Get Your Party-Planning Basics On-Point

You’ll want to build your party on a solid foundation so you can have fun with the details! 

So, make sure you secure your date and have the right venue to accommodate the size of your guest list and get those invitations in the mail. That way you’ll have time to get a final count over to the event planner or venue operators.

You’ll also want to pick a menu that’s creative and delicious. And make sure you know about your guests’ dietary restrictions if there are any to worry about. 

Finally, decide if the event will have a theme or color scheme. Then decide how you’ll design the rest of the party around that theme or set of colors. 

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Planning Tip #2: Get Party Favors and Event Entertainment Guests Will Rave About

Maybe you want to get the whole family dancing or singing along to classics or the latest hits. From live bands to deejays, be sure you have the right entertainment for your guests to enjoy. 

And don’t forget about the favors!


Whether you opt for customized water bottles, sweatshirts, or sweets, make sure your guests are leaving with memorable keepsakes that go with your theme and be sure your “thank you” treats give the right impression and remind guests of the fabulous time they’ve had.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Planning Tip #3: Keep Traditions Alive (Or Create Some New Ones!)  

Will you be having a candle-lighting ceremony? Custom yarmulkes? Specially selected readings? Special guest entrances?

Whether you’re following sacred traditions or creating your own, be sure you’ve planned for these activities in the play-by-play for the evening.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Planning Tip #4: Capture The Occasion With a Photographer, Step-And-Repeat, Or Selfie Station

How are you going to commemorate your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah?

You could hire a professional photographer to float amongst your guests and snap candids or group photos.

Or you can use fun props and a special corner of your venue to set up a selfie station with your own hashtag so guests can send you all of their favorite photos from the evening.


You could even order a step-and-repeat with a custom red carpet decal to give your event that custom, high-end, and exclusive feel.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah Planning Tip #5: Have fun with customizing your space so the guest of honor feels the love
