When hosting a bar or bat mitzvah, the No. 1 priority is making sure that the guest of honor and his or her friends and family are having a great time. And with certain party elements, you can be sure that everyone young and old will be enjoying themselves.
Bar and bat mitzvah invitations
Inform everyone of the upcoming big event so that they can mark their calendars. Choose invitations that reflect the theme you have chosen for the party. You could go with something traditional like this Plum Striped Bat Mitzvah Invitation, or you can opt for a more modern invite, like this Mosaic Mazel Tov card.
Finger food and mocktails
Offer friendly finger foods for the kids to snack on, like sliders, fries in cones, quesadillas, popcorn and more. Also provide the young party guests with fun drinks without the alcohol. Try serving mock champagne at the celebration, which contains ginger ale, pineapple juice and white grape juice. For the grown-ups, consider something like cocktails and a sushi bar.
Aside from socializing and enjoying the snacks, kids will be looking for something to do. Provide fun activities during the party, like a casino table, a temporary tattoo or airbrush artist, video games, ping pong or a photo booth.
