With the warm weather fast approaching Pittsburgh, many events are scheduled outdoors to take advantage of the good weather during the warmer months, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are no exception! If you are planning to celebrate this momentous occasion in your child’s life with an outdoor party, here are some fun ideas to make your Bar/Bat Mitzvah memorable!
Creative Light Displays – When the day turns to evening, lighting helps set the ambiance. Novelty lights, tea lights, and candles can be used to not only shed some light on the occasion, but as a decorative touch to complement the theme. There are numerous decorative tea light and votive holders, or you can opt for customized ones with your child’s name, as well as the date of the occasion, providing a lasting memory!
Play up the outdoor theme – With so few months to enjoy the outdoors in Pittsburgh, make the most of your outdoor Bar/Bat Mitzvah by providing little touches that celebrate the outdoors. Custom plastic cups (eliminating the need for glass), water bottles with custom labels, and even handing out flip flops are unique touches that blend well with any outdoor theme.
Be sure to keep it cool – With the hot weather, you will want to offer something that will help guests to cool down! Frozen drink machines and frozen treats not only make a great treat, they appeal to all ages!
Incorporate elements from your surroundings – Western PA is known for many beautiful landscapes. Take advantage of the natural beauty around you to blend in with your theme, whether it is flower centerpieces that are featured in the landscape, or plants that the area is known for. Garlands and swags can be beautiful, natural decorative elements that reflect the beauty of the outdoors.
Forego traditional balloons for Balloon Arrangements – While balloons are a party favorite in terms of decor, they can become problematic outdoors, particularly when there is even a little wind. A creative balloon arrangement is not only beautiful, there are many companies that create custom arrangements that can go with your theme.
Go with the “Camp Bar/Bat Mitzvah” trend – Many Bar/Bat Mitzvahs that happen during the summer months incorporate a “summer camp” theme, that offers a number of creative ideas from s’mores appetizers to rustic decorations, this theme offers a number of exciting ideas that are fun for all to enjoy!
