How do you keep a group of 13-year-olds entertained? As the host of your child’s bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, you need to figure it out—and quick. Gone are the days when the hora was enough to keep everyone enthralled into the wee hours. And that lavish candy bar? It’s going to be popular, but it’s also going to result in some sugar-hyped newly branded teens who want to be entertained, and they want it now. As the host, it’s your job to make sure that everyone from the little ones tagging along with their parents to your Grandma Erica has a grand time. But don’t worry—with the right mitzvah novelties, you have endless tricks up your sleeve.
From grand to small and intimate, there’s a party novelty out there for all tastes. With some airbrush magic, your guests get instant mementos of the big day and can opt to have these artists make their mark just about anywhere from t-shirts to mega canvasses. A graffiti wall is sure to be a huge hit—plus, it lets guests leave special notes just for the guest of honor. Photo booths are a must because even when you have a great photographer, there’s something irresistible about those classic strip snapshots.
You Set the Tone
Once the Tanakh verses are recited and your child has led their portion of the service, it’s time to get down to business—pulling off the biggest party of your child’s life (so far). With Imagine Me, your guests can design truly one of a kind mementos by having their faces superimposed over classic images. After all, doesn’t everyone deserve to be Marilyn Monroe or the president for a day? And when you opt for Flip Books as one of your favors, you can be sure that everyone will treasure these take-homes for a lifetime.
From karaoke to a wax hands station, fashion comp cards and signature swag like hats and photo crystals this is one rite of passage that demands only the best. Think it’s impossible to tear a pre-teens eyes away from their smartphone? It’s actually pretty easy—all you need is the right entertainment to catch their eye, and the party will leave the allure of Facebook and texting in the dust.
