So, your little boy is about to turn 13 years old. This means that your child has reached the ultimate level of maturation, according to Jewish law. Now that your son will officially become a “Bar Mitzvah”, you have to celebrate the occasion. And what better way to commemorate the fact that your little boy becomes a man than throwing a big party? Celebrate the occasion with your family and friends. You don’t have to worry about the religious part, but you do have to be concerned with the party part. If you’ve never organized an event of this scale before, then you’re most likely at a loss. Don’t threat because you have here everything you want to know.
Hire candy floss stalls and machines
Candy and Bar Mitzvah are two things that go hand in hand. In some congregations, people have the habit of throwing candy at the birthday boy when the Haftarah is completed. Why? Because they want to wish him a sweet like. You’re not a stranger to this custom. As a matter of fact, you have seen people throwing candy at the Bar Mitzvah time and time again. The thing that you need to understand is that it’s not necessary to go with candy throwing. You can forget all about this age-old custom. However, there will be many kids at the party and do need to make them happy. This is why you should hire candy floss stalls and machines. There’s not a child in the world that doesn’t like this fluffy treat. If you want your boy’s celebration to be special, you now know what to do.
Consider the guest numbers
You don’t want to go overboard and spend a lot of money. But you don’t have to spend great amounts of money to make your kid happy. All you have to do is invite the right people. Sure, you have to send invitations to a couple of family members, but how many people do you invite, exactly? Ask your child who he wants to be present, so that you can have a clear picture of the situation. You need to have an approximate number when you look for a party venue and to determine how much money you’ll need. Even if you can afford to go a little bit overboard, you shouldn’t because you still have to put money aside for university.
Don’t forget about entertainment
You’ve already booked a caterer for the big event, but chances are that you haven’t even thought about entertainment. The guests consist of mostly kids and you can’t keep them occupied only with food and candy. You also have to provide entertainment. The question now is what kind of entertainment is right for a Bar Mitzvah. Hiring a music band is a great option. Another thing you can do is put up a video music booth. No matter what you choose, you have to understand that family members are not the important ones, but the children. If you’re able to find a solution that makes everyone happy, the more power to you.
