Bar Mitzvah Planning Tips in Westchester

How to Plan a Bar Mitzvah in Westchester

One of the top ways to plan a bar mitzvah celebration in Westchester County is to put the spotlight on your child as well as on the theme he or she wants for the party.

At GreenTree Country Club a Westchester event venue, we have welcomed fabulous, unforgettable Bar Mitzvah celebrations, filling our ballrooms and grounds with impressive spotlights on the child being celebrated.

These days many of the Bar mitzvah celebrations feature personalized details that pay tribute to the guest of honor, and provide excellent photo opportunities for a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah that will be talked about for a long time to come.

To help you plan your Westchester Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, here are some ways to personalize your party details with Bar Mitzvah Planning Tips in Westchester:

Create design and décor details featuring the child’s first and last name. For instance, you may have Josh’s teen lounge and the Cohen Candy Bar to highlight the dessert hour of your child’s bar mitzvah. Using both first and last names opens up many additional ways to personalize the celebration.


Use lighting.

Your child’s name projected onto the dance floor or onto the walls of the ballroom, even onto the driveway outside your event venue, creates a dramatic effect that impresses guests, and again, provides excellent photo opportunities. Know that our Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah planners help you with ideas for custom lighting effects going beyond your child’s name, such as a take on the bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah theme, or your child’s signature saying, a line from a movie, and many more options. Specialty lighting can also direct guests to ‘Jakes Joint’ and other special party areas of your special event at our Bar and Mat Mitzvah venue and grounds.

Offer signature drinks and dishes.

Whatever you select for your bar mitzvah catering list or bat mitzvah menu, give each dish a personalized name tailored to your child, such as ‘Henry’s Hummus House’ or ‘Steven’s Sliders.’ Drinks for kids and teens can be given a personalized name as part of a signature drinks lists for young party guests, and again, use your last name for adult drinks on the bar menu.

Display personalized signs.

A tall chalkboard sign can welcome guests to ‘Bobby’s Broadway Bash,’ direct them to your party zones, and share the Instagram tag you’d like guests to use for sharing their photos. Signs can be designed for your party buffet or stations, for entertainment areas in your party venue, and for outdoor areas that extend the celebration all through the grounds of your event venue.

A video presentation.

As the party opens, a special video presentation created by your child and his or her friends, or by a professional video production company, your child shines on the big screen as the star or his or her own mini movie or fabulously-edited photo montage.

A live performance.

If your child has amazing dance, singing or other any other special talents, he or she can open the bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah celebration with a live performance, either solo or being joined by friends or professional performers. This always gets the party started in the right way.

And a nice ending touch is a thank you sign, or hand-written thank you messages from your child, at your Bar Mitzvah’s exit, with those hand-written (or printed) notes from your child affixed to signature take-home desserts bearing your child’s likeness, name or monogram.
