New Year's Eve Bar/Bat Mitzvah Theme

{Black and White B'nai Mitzvah}

The Invitation:
Send a hint of what's to come with a hip and modern square invitation printed with graphite gray ink on a crisp linen flat card. I love this card for bar mitzvah's, but it's perfect for a bat mitzvah that isn't too frilly. Another option for a bat mitzvah could be this sweetly sophiticated invitation that is hand embellished with a Swarovski crystal in the center of each flower.

The Centerpieces:
I love the idea of filling different shapes of cocktail classes with black and white jelly beans and grouping these on the tables. Add some candles in votives and flowers or balloons if you like and the stage is set for a glamorous and fun reception.

The Favors:
A perfect take away that all the guests will love is a delicious black and white cookie in a glassine bag sealed with a sticker that coordinates with the invitation.

The very best b'nai mitzvahs are the ones filled with love and celebration of the special boy or girl. Have fun with planning all of this and have your child get as involved with the details as he or she wants. When the big day arrives be sure to just relax and enjoy this most special day for your family!

  1. Very good ideas. I especially like your idea of putting jelly beans in glassses and putting them around the room. It is a very clever and inexpensive way to decorate the room. I agree whole heartely about the very best b'nai mitzvahs are the ones filled with love and celebration of the special boy or girl. After all...that is what it is all about!!!
