4 Subtle Ways to Modernize Your Bar or Bat Mitzvah Party

4 Subtle Ways to Modernize Your Bar or Bat Mitzvah Party

A Bar or Bat Mitzvah photo album is like a time capsule, capturing the ideals and fashions of their times. When your teen looks back on their B Mitzvah photos in 10 years, they may cringe at their mouth full of braces or choice of dress, but with the tips below, their party will feel evergreen. For the family who wants to keep up with ever evolving trends without feeling too tied down to the fashions of the 2020s, here are four ways to incorporate modern trends into your B Mitzvah party in subtle, special ways.

  1.  Pantone Color of the Year

Every year, design brand Pantone releases their “Color of the Year”, a unique hue meant to capture the essence and feeling of the year. Even if the Color of the Year is not in your party’s palette, there are many ways to insert the color subtly throughout. Customized sneakers, nail polish, jewelry, uplighting, floral arrangements, and other design elements are the perfect way to conspicuously incorporate a color scheme and be a nod to the year your Mitzvah is taking place.

2. Eco-Friendly


Recent polls have shown that Gen Z is uniquely concerned about the environment and sustainability when compared to older generations. With the demand for action against climate change rising, there’s no sign that this trend is slowing down. As a result, many families are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint in party planning. Biodegradable dinnerware, hand-picked florals, and minimization of plastic waste are all great places to start when pursuing sustainability. 


3. Tik Tok booth

There’s no saying what the social media landscape will look like even five years from now, let alone decades in the future. However, just as Facebook was the quintessential platform of the 2010s, it’s clear that Tik Tok is earning itself that title for the 2020s. As a way to capture the unique essence of this time in the digital world, set up a Tik Tok booth at your B Mitzvah party!

Much like a traditional photo booth, a simple station with a tripod, iPhone, and backdrop is all you need to get going. Set up a Tik Tok page specifically for the big day that guests can share the video to. This is not only a fun and modern way to engage party guests, it can act as a video diary that will preserve the precious memories of the big day.


4. Minimalism

“Go big or go home” and “less is more” seem like opposing mindsets, but in the world of party planning, they can actually complement each other. In reviewing trends of 2022, it’s clear that minimalist maximalism (a few bold, simple, eye-catching elements) is going to be the predominant design choice in the next few years. Simple, chic, and bright is what designers are leaning into, and parties planned with that in mind will surely age like fine wine.
