6 Tips to Keep Cool at a Summer Bar/Bat Mitzvah

By Vered Ornstein

There is so much attention to detail that must be spent when planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party. The venue, the food, the outfits, the entertainment; you’ve worked for months or even years to make sure everything is in place for your teen’s big day. One thing you can’t control is the weather. If your family has been assigned a Bar/Bat Mitzvah date in the summertime, you may be nervous about planning a party that doesn’t get bogged down by hot, sticky weather. If this sounds like you, don’t sweat it- here are six tips on how to keep spirits higher than the temperature at your summer B Mitzvah.

  1. Have a pool party

On some summer days, the only thing that feels like it can cut the heat is a nice dip in the pool or ocean. Hosting a pool party is always a popular idea, as splashing around with friends, catching a tan, and sipping ice-cold drinks by the water never gets old. Especially as it is becoming more common to host multiple, smaller parties as opposed to one big one, a pool party is a chance to kick back and relax with a more intimate group of family or friends. Look into indoor swimming venues such as the local JCC or YMCA to start planning the coolest party of the summer.


  1. Make a signature drink

A staple of many modern weddings and parties, a signature drink is a special and fun way to keep everyone hydrated and happy at your summer party. Whether it’s a frozen slushie, a virgin cocktail, or just something cool and simple, signature drinks are refreshing and rejuvenating as you party the day away.


  1. Rent an ice cream truck

Who doesn’t love a big scoop of ice cream or a popsicle as the sun beats down on a hot day? You can set up an ice cream bar right inside of your party venue for customizable treat as the party rages on, or take it a step further and rent an ice crem truck to serve guests as they leave the party. Whichever you choose, your guests will always remember how sweet it was to be treated at the end of the night.


  1. Personalized fans

Personalized party favors come in seemingly endless options, from clothing, to backpacks, to jewelry, and countless other unique offerings. A paper or foldable fan with your party’s branding on it is the perfect way to keep people cool while sticking to your desired theme and aesthetic, whether at your party or at your Bar/Bat Mitzvah service. This is an especially good idea if you’re planning on hosting an outdoor event and you want to be certain that everyone stays comfortable while sitting or playing in the sunshine.


  1. Opt for a nighttime party

As fun as daytime events can be, the safest bet to make sure it’s not too hot at your upcoming summertime B Mitzvah is to host events in the nighttime. Around midsummer, this means a party would start sometime after 9 p.m., which may be too late for many people’s preferences. In this case, try incorporating the sunset into the night’s events and start the festivities around then. Even if you don’t wait for nightfall, waiting until the afternoon or evening will ensure the temperatures are more manageable and comfortable than if they were in the middle of the day.


  1. Ice sculpture

If you really want to wow your guests with a showstopping centerpiece to light up your party venue, invest in an ice sculpture to show off your party’s branding while keeping things literally chill. Though it may not work to cool down people’s drinks, it’s sure to make your party the hottest event of the hot season.
