Creative Candle Lighting Displays For Your Celebration

Bar Bat Mitzvah candle lighting ceremonies are a tradition many families like to include in their child’s celebration. Whether you are lighting one candle or thirteen, you’ll need a display. Some families are opting for creative alternatives to a traditional Bar Bat Mitzvah cake and candle lighting.

Here are some unique ideas we found, and you can see more in our past Unique Candle Lighting Display story:
