Animal House Bar Mitzvah

For this Bar Mitzvah my client came to me wanting to recreate the movie animal house as it was her son’s favorite movie.  Hillcrest Country Club in Beverly Hills was the perfect place to execute this theme.  We decided to recreate a “college” campus and for cocktails created a “student center” for the party the adults sat in the “Dean’s” special restaurant and the kids area was turned into a “Frat House”.

Tiny Pine Press  created a custom logo that was derived from all of the child’s interests and hobbies. The logo was carried throughout the night to brand the event on plastic serving trays, mugs, seat cushions and all signage. Additionally we created a map of the “campus” where our frat house was to live using the names of all the members of the Bar Mitzvah Boys family.We had seat cushions made to match the custom insignia of the frat.  The table names were different fraternities from around the country and we used each fraternities flag to identify the tables. The Bar Mitzvah boys grandfather built a “death mobile” which we used for the grand entrance.The windows of the country club were covered in silhouettes to replicate the sorority sister scene of the girls having a pillow fight.  Togas were handed out during the music dance set of the song “shout”.  We also set the dessert buffet table as a giant edible parade.

Ideas for Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah Theme

Having trouble deciding on a theme for your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah?  Don’t know where to look?  Is everyone you know doing a “club” and you want something different?

The easiest place to begin looking for ideas is with your child.  Getting him or her involved is as easy as asking them what they want or like.  Sometimes it may feel like a fishing expedition, however, with the right questions, you can get a lot of information. An easy way into your child’s mind can be as simple as a discussion about their hobbies, the books they like to read, a favorite TV show or movie.  Use these as great jumping off points to spark interest, thought and even a conversation.  Maybe it is something the two of you share or enjoy doing together as a family.  
When my son was becoming a Bar Mitzvah I knew he loved to read Harry Potter and science fiction books.  So I casually asked him what he thought about having a Harry Potter theme event?  His face lit up and I got my answer.  I began to read all the Harry Potter books. I got tons of ideas from them and a giant plus was we then had the books in common which gave us something to talk about and bond over. 9 years later when a new Harry movie hits the theaters my son waits to go see it with me. 
When it came time for my daughter we decided to go with one of my favorite movies, The Wizard of Oz.  We ran to the video store and purchased the movie and spent hours watching it together discussing all the possibilities.  She put her own stamp on the event in many ways but her biggest idea was to make a modern day Oz. So ask your child what would Oz look like in the year 2012?

Get them involved from the beginning. Once you tap into your child’s passions and imagination the doors begin to open and the possibilities for something unique can become endless.
