Know the Numbers

With large families and many friends wanting to be part of your child’s’ Bat or Bar Mitzvah, it can be difficult to estimate guest numbers. However, when sourcing a venue and approximating a budget, it helps to produce a rough estimate of a guest list. This list can always be updated at a later date.

Whatever type of event that you choose, make sure that it holds meaning for you and your family.

Choose the Best Caterer

The food at your celebration will be the most talked about part of the day when people go home and reflect. Arrange a food tasting with your caterer, and try and cater to everyone’s palates when making menu choices. Don’t be afraid to ask the caterer for recommendations as they will often be more experienced in the favorite traditional dishes served at Bat and Bar Mitzvah parties.
