One of the first things we think about when starting to plan our child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah is the venue. Today’s “real deal” tip is all about choosing your venue with cost-savings in mind.
Picking a venue that matches your theme is a fun way to set the stage for a fabulous party and is also a great way to save money on décor.
By choosing a locale that has an atmosphere that is consistent with your party concept, you will save time and money when it comes to planning for decorations. It is a lot easier to turn a rustic country club setting into a lodgey camp themed Bar/Bat Mitzvah than it is to turn an elegant hotel ballroom into a ski lodge.
What’s better than an animal themed Bat Mitzvah right at the San Francisco zoo!

I know from experience as I attempted the latter. I will spare many of the elaborate details. However, I will warn readers that it did involve a re-creation of a huge stone fireplace with moose head as well as a giant stuffed bear in a Nordic ski sweater with his pair of cross-country skis in tow.
