A child’s Bar Mitzvah is one of the most important days of his life, which is why so much time and effort is put into planning the reception. One part of the reception that needs to be planned ahead of time is the Bar Mitzvah centerpieces. The centerpieces are important because they are one of the first things people will see upon entering the room after the cocktail hour.  Many people treat a Bar Mitzvah reception the same way they do a wedding reception. Because of this, you can think of it in terms of what is appropriate for a wedding centerpiece.

There are a myriad of ideas for Bar Mitzvah centerpieces, ranging from do-it-yourself decorations to store bought ones, to letting your caterer handle it entirely. The centerpieces should reflect the rest of the reception’s theme. In addition, they should not be too large or extravagant because you want people to be able to see over the centerpieces to the other side of the table. Classic ideas for centerpieces involve the Star of David or other religious tokens  However many parties use centerpieces unrelated to religion that are just plain fun!

Making your Bar Mitzvah centerpieces is a great way to save some money. Because Bar Mitzvahs can become expensive quickly, it always is a good idea to save money where you can. If you want to stay away from religious-themed centerpieces, you always can go with the classic flower and candle combination. This type of centerpiece looks good at any occasion, so you never can go wrong with using this. If you want your centerpieces to be a bit larger, you always could have a small flower display and attach balloons to the center with string. The balloons should be high enough that they will not interfere with your guests’ conversations.

If you are not sure what type of Bar Mitzvah centerpieces with which to go, the best tip to remember is to make it as classy as possible. You do not have to spend a lot of money on your centerpieces to be classic. Usually simple is better than extravagant. If you try to go too over the top with your centerpieces, then people most likely will remember them as being tacky. You want your reception to be remembered as classy, but classy doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money!
