We have all been to a Bar/Bat Mitzvah where too much emphasis is spent show- casing a talented child. This is a great time for your child to stand up, proud and be welcomed and recognized by their community. It is important his/her personality to come through because the more you can infuse this into the celebration the more connected your guests will feel. But, when is too much too much? How do you showcase your child without coming off like a showoff?
Find one of his/her interests or passions or just something that is interesting about your child and do something creative with it.
I had a child who was interested in rock and roll music and his mom was obsessed with albums. So we showcased her son by superimposing his image onto his favorite album covers. We then created laminated placemats from the covers and used them on the tables in place of table names or numbers. At the end of the evening guests were grabbing them up as souvenirs.
For another child, a very talented musician we created a Renaissance fair as the cocktail hour and along with other artists, interactive booths, food and strolling talent the Bat Mitzvah performed a piece. Her performance was scheduled and the time and location was listed the program that we handed out at the guest arrival.
Another Bar Mitzvah boy’s passion was skateboarding and anything “street”. So we used his grand entrance as a way for him to express his talent; we laid down ramps, roped off a specific area and came in on a skateboard, did a 1 minute routine and the party started.
