Hi! My name is Mölly. I’ve recently started going to Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and I’m so excited to start writing about them.
I love attending Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties because I feel like each celebration has a unique touch, and I love finding out what it is!
I’m excited to bring my perspective to MitzvahMarket.com.
This post is very personal because on Friday, March 15th, I celebrated my own Bat Mitzvah!
It was the most amazing, wonderful experience of my life. I’m sad it’s over but happy that it happened. I had a great service and the best party!
My theme was “Keep Calm and Feel the Beat,” and generally a music theme. I like to play around with a DJ program on my computer as a hobby, and so the whole Beats and music theme made sense. My main colors of the celebration were gray and pink, with some white.
My room was entirely pink. It had fun decorated tables for adults, and white couches, tables and chairs for the kids. I loved the party room, and it was my favorite part of my celebration.
My Party Room
What I loved about my party room was the short but cute photo montage of pictures of me. It included pictures from when I was young up to this year.

Another favorite thing from my party room was the kids lounge area. I actually didn’t know about all the fun blankets and pillows, and I was surprised by the decorations myself! I think pillows are cute additions to the party’s theme, and just fun décor in general. And in the end, I got to keep all the pillows and blankets and they now sit on my bed as decoration!

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and I wish I could do it all again! I’m happy I could celebrate with my family and friends and I’m so happy to be a Bat Mitzvah!
