Plan Ahead: Begin thinking about your child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah long before they turn 12 or 13. By planning ahead, you set yourself up for saving money because you have the chance to book your venue and temple service in advance rather than at the last minute. Additionally, this allows you enough time to get all of your other details in place.
Theme: Most Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties include a theme. This can be anything your child chooses, but make sure it is something that you can incorporate into all aspects of your party. See our previous blog for some theme ideas.
Entertainment: Chances are many of your child's friends will be planning their parties around the same time; that's why it's a good idea to think of ways to make your party stand out. Rather than stick to traditional forms of entertainment, think outside of the box and plan something extraordinary. Also, pick an DJ that can cater to all your guests' music preferences, and consider hiring a photographer to capture the most exciting moments of the night.
Menu: Bar and Bat Mitzvah's usually include a buffet style dinner. Since most of your guests will be around the age of 13, include a kids buffet that includes popular food such as pizza, chicken fingers and french fries. To satisfy their sweet tooth, think about including a candy bar for a pre-dessert snack! And the good news? At Zacharys we offer both!
