Home / Blog / Amazing Ideas for Hosting a Fun and Unique Bar Mitzvah Party

A bar or bat mitzvah is one of the most exciting events in a child’s life in a Jewish community. You are suddenly considered an adult in the eyes of your religion, and you are lavished with gifts and a large party. It’s the most significant event in your life when you turn twelve or thirteen.

That means the adults in charge of the event must make time to brainstorm bar mitzvah party ideas. After all, this is essentially a children’s wedding. 

If you’re looking for some unique, non-traditional bar mitzvah party ideas, keep reading below to learn how to host a fun and memorable bar mitzvah party.

1. You Can Put Up a Chocolate Fountain

There aren’t many other occasions where a chocolate fountain would be appropriate, but this is most certainly one of them. After all, a bar mitzvah is a kid’s wedding, and what is more fun than a chocolate fountain?

There are occasions where children do not participate in the ritual of eating from the chocolate fountain, but you’ll still want to have it at your party to guarantee everyone has a good time.

2. You Can Photoshop the Celebrant 

You can Photoshop the celebration on the invitations themselves or use a poster printer. This way, the bar mitzvah boy or girl gets to star in a movie of their choice.

3. You Can Hire a Photo Booth

There is so much fun in a photo booth, especially if you choose an exciting backdrop. If you live in a tight-knit Jewish community, you can borrow a ton of old Torahs and other Jewish objects to populate the photo booth.

There are a few different ways to do this. You can either have a professional photographer specialising in the photo booth or use a video camera and set it up directly above the booth. This way, you get a video of the bar mitzvah celebrant and all of their friends.

4. You Can Have Your Neon Nights

When you have a party centred around a child, you want to make sure that every aspect of the party is geared toward fun and excitement. These neon glasses are a great way to do that.

5. You Can Get a Stand-Up Comedian 

Hiring a stand-up comedian is an excellent idea for the adults at the party, but the kids will probably be the ones who will get the most out of it. The stand-up comedian will work closely with the bar mitzvah celebrant to learn about them, and they can use that information to make a hilarious show.

6. You Can Do Your Karaoke 

Karaoke is a great way to bond with others, and you can take it to the next level by doing it at a bar mitzvah. In the past, they have put together a real band and hosted the event at a karaoke hall.

However, this is an excellent idea for a minor party. You can gather your music system, line up a few microphones, and witness everyone have fun.


As you can see, there are several different bar mitzvah party ideas that you can use to make your child’s day incredible. As you plan your party, remember that it is up to you to make the event fun for the celebrant and everyone attending.
