A Beautiful Story About a Young Lady’s Bat Mitzvah Project

Posted by abncparties on December 13, 2009

Dave Choate wrote on Friday at Seacoastonline.com an article called: “Girl gives handmade menorahs to elderly.”

In it, he writes: “On the eve of Hanukkah, one Stratham girl brought icons of the holiday to those who otherwise would have gone without.”

Bat Mitzvah Project

Rachel Presenting a Menorah

“In preparation for her June bat mitzvah, the Jewish rite of passage into adulthood, seventh-grader Rachel Salzman of Stratham has spent hours creating painted wooden menorahs for the region’s elderly…In all, she’s created 30 to give to residents of assisted-living facilities and nursing homes in the Seacoast. ”

We think this was a great Mitzvah project and hope you gain inspiration for it. Read the rest of the story, including warm appreciations from many of the recipients.

A Simple DIY Formula for a Halloween (or other) Centerpiece Decoration for a Bat Mitzvah Party

Posted by abncparties on November 18, 2009

We wanted to share a formula for some cute centerpieces we helped put together for a Halloween themed bat mitzvah party a just a few weeks ago.

Use these construction techniques to decorate your party with attractive centerpieces.  Support a stick or flexible plastic tube by gluing onto a piece of styrofoam or wood.  Insert into your base (here a plastic jack-o-lantern) and glue.  The base can also be a shopping bag, small box, decorated box, theme box (i.e. computer), etc.  Camouflage with some tissue or mylar paper.  Add a large picture (or other theme piece)  at the top mounted to a rigid piece of cardboard or polystyrene and attached to the stick or flexible plastic tube.

Add theme related garnishments – here we used leaves, scarecrows, dried flowers, etc.  Or it can be anything complimenting the theme you select.

Enjoy!

Our new video demonstrates how to put together a DIY violin cut out for a music theme party centerpiece.  The centerpiece includes strings and a bow. The  strings are made from white yarn, heavy black card stock and clear push pins.  We start with a plain white polystyrene violin cut out, seal it and paint it.  Judy paints F holes, adds a tail piece, fine tuners as well as a bow with fishing string hair.

The violin and bow are added to a budget “Just Add Sand” centerpiece base and accented with two pieces of onion grass.  Balloons, a table name and table place cards together make an economical violin theme centerpiece for a Bat Mitzvah, Bar Mitzvah, wedding, special event or party!

Sharing a Party as a Means of Cost cutting for Bat Mitzvahs, Quinceanos and Sweet 16’s

Posted by abncparties on July 31, 2009

Ileana Morales’ article for Entertainment Daily appeared earlier today.  The article was titled  Teens party on as families cut thousands off budgets to host coming-of-age celebrations

Ms. Morales asks:  “Planning a quinceanera? Think about choreographing your own dance routine. Feeding a Sweet 16? Hope you know how to bake. Bat mitzvah on the way? You might want to share your party with a neighbor.”

She went on to comment that other families “…are cutting thousands from the budgets for teenage girls’ coming-of-age celebrations because of the sour economy, party planners said, but stopping short of canceling the bashes. After all, the parties mark a milestone in otherwise uncertain times.”

She also talked about vendors reacting to the cost consciousness of their customers.  Read the rest of the article.

Budget Bat Mitzvah Ideas by Going Theme Less

Posted by abncparties on July 11, 2009

Lois Solomon wrote in Moms and Dads on the SunSentinal site about a theme-less bat mitzvah party.

In it she writes:  “To reduce costs but still make a party that is classy and fun, I’m hiring a DJ and buying some centerpieces. I bought invitations on-line and created an e-mail address for people to RSVP. In this economy, I’m not sure guests should expect much more.”  Read the rest of the article
