A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a significant milestone for both your child and family. The celebration that culminates from years of Hebrew school preparation is unlike other social events, in that you are catering to both adult guests and your child’s friends. Bar/Bat Mitzvahs are often more complicated for venues and vendors due to party theme set-ups, selecting multiple menus, and building a timeline that accounts for special interludes, such as videos and additional speeches.
When your weekend arrives, after months of tireless planning to ensure every detail is considered, it is easy to become engrossed by the needs of vendors and guests. This distracts from your sole responsibility during your weekend: to celebrate and enjoy the experience. With a perfectly planned weekend, and me team guiding your day, you’ll be oblivious to the orchestrated chaos behind-the-scenes. You’ll be lost in the special moments your family is creating.
My extensive network of venues and service providers enable me to complement your specific needs. My creative skills are enhanced by organizational expertise, which come together to save you time, money, and to provide seamless execution of your child’s weekend.
I counsel you through the maze of decisions that Bar/ Bat Mitzvahs demand – venue, catering, event design, entertainment, photography – until an ideal team is created.
Through a menu selection meeting and tasting, I will collaborate with the venue’s Chef and catering manager to create a custom-designed menu that reflects your family’s style.
I will make recommendations, schedule and attend meetings with vendors for invitations, décor, florist, lighting and linens to create a memorable theme, carried out seamlessly across all the elements.
By developing a customized budget, I’ll help you prioritize your decisions and get the best value.
I collaborate and develop a customized, detailed timeline for the flow of the weekend and manage the load-in schedule with all the vendors. I will provide a master vendor contact sheet and detailed family itinerary email.
Together we meet with the venue or caterer to discuss the set-up needs and details for the celebration.
I join you to meet with the DJ or entertainment to discuss timing and set-up of the space to ensure everyone is aligned.
My Bar/Bat Mitzvah planning and design services assist families with all aspects of planning, starting 18 months prior to the weekend, and includes up to 50 hours of consulting guidance and weekend orchestration. Through close collaboration and personalized attention, I guide you step-by-step through the entire event planning and design process. The art is in the details – that’s the signature of a Simcha’s Event.
YOUR PRIORITY: BE THERE FOR YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER AND LEAVE THE DETAILS TO ME.
