Your child will achieve numerous milestones throughout his or her life. As a member of the Jewish community, the bar/bat mitzvah celebration is a huge one. It symbolizes the transition into adulthood and recognizes all of the hard work he or she has put into this day. While this rite of passage is a serious undertaking, the party is the perfect way to celebrate his or her achievements. These celebrations have become bigger and more elaborate with each passing year, but you don’t have to use all of your savings to make this celebration a success. No matter what your budgetary concerns are, In-Tents Party Rentals can help make your vision a reality. Just follow these three tips for your bar/bat mitzvah planning:
Coordinate your venue and theme
You don’t necessarily have to have an outlandish theme for your child’s bar/bat mitzvah, but it will make it more memorable. Get your child’s input and incorporate their personality and preferences. In the end, this day is all about him or her, so make sure the theme is something they’ll enjoy. You should also coordinate your venue to your overall theme. You can use fun tent accessories and other decorated party equipment to bring it all together. Whether you go for Hollywood Glamour, Around the World, or Under the Big Top, you can decorate your indoor venue or event tent rentals to suit your motif.
Plan food and activities
Again, get your child’s help when it comes to food and activity choices. If they know their friends won’t want anything but pizza, don’t plan a fancy sit-down service. Sometimes, a buffet can be a great way to please most of the guests. If your child knows everyone will want to dance the night away, be sure to include a dance floor rental and hire a great DJ or band. Make sure to include traditional activities like candle dedication and the chair lift! You can certainly plan surprises for your child, as long as you’re sure he or she will enjoy them.
Notify in advance
Bar/bat mitzvahs may require even more planning than the average wedding; these dates at temple are booked at least a few years in advance! That’s why many people will book their event tent rentals ahead of time, too. While it’s typically scheduled as close to your child’s 13th birthday as possible, many bar/bat mitzvahs occur right around the same time. Out-of-town family members need to plan their trip and local friends and family may need to pick and choose which bar/bat mitzvah celebrations they can attend. Therefore, you should send out your invitations well in advance: if you have non-local guests, you should aim to mail them about three months prior to the event; if everyone is local, mail them out six to eight weeks beforehand.
