Take These First Steps

Getting started planning your Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration can be quite overwhelming. So often we see busy parents who don’t know what to do or where to start and with our current situation you may be feeling limited as to what planning you can do. However, now is a great time to get the ball rolling. Here are a few ways you can get started without leaving your home.


Make your guest list

This is one of the most important steps of the process and our recommendation of where to start. The number of guests invited determines EVERYTHING about your event. Where you can host it. How much you’ll spend. How many ____ you’ll need. While your guest list will fluctuate over the next year, the number of guests is a good starting point to make sure you have a space that is the right size and can give solid estimates to all of your vendors.


Interview the guest of honor

Your child has worked so hard to reach this milestone. The celebration is the fun part and the planning should be too!

We love a party that reflects your tweens unique personality. So take advantage of your kids being home and sit down with your son or daughter and start asking away. Find out how they envision their celebration? Do they have a theme in mind, certain colors? What type of entertainment do they think their guests will enjoy? Do they want a D.J. or band? Any activities? How about keeping traditions like a candle lighting ceremony or participating in the Hora? Sometimes kids know exactly what they want and other times they need to explore their options.
