Your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is coming up and it’s almost time to celebrate! A lot goes into planning a Bar/Bat Mitzvah–from choosing the perfect venue down to deciding on a cake flavor.

But before you decide on the details, you first must choose a theme! Does your child love to dance? Or perhaps they want to travel the world. Whatever it is, the theme possibilities are endless. Here are some fun ones to consider.


Sports: What’s your child’s favorite sports team? Let them live out their dreams of being a professional athlete by adorning the tables with personalized jerseys and filling the centerpieces with basketballs, baseballs or even hockey pucks (depending on what they’re into)! Forego traditional seating cards and opt for sports trading cards with your child’s face and table number on it instead. Give your guests something to remember the night by with an embroidered baseball hats customized to their party!

Lounge Chic: Transport your child and their friends to a chic lounge with a nightclub themed party. Teenage guests will enjoy getting to experience the nightclub feel, in one that is suitable for their age. Sleek white furniture with monogrammed pillows and purple toned lights are great ways to mimic the look of a lounge, while the dancefloor takes center stage. Invitations can be sent in the shape of a VIP club pass and glow sticks can be handed out on the dance floor to make the night extra fun!

Carnival/Circus: Step right up to the most spectacular party on earth! If your child loves playing games and going on rides, a whimsical carnival theme will be the perfect fit. Set up red, white and yellow stations filled with cotton candy, mini donuts and giant rainbow lollipops to stay true to the traditional colors and treats! Popcorn buckets filled with white hydrangeas make for a playful centerpiece. And no carnival would be complete without some games. Keep things authentic by renting a skeeball machine or setting up a ring toss.
