“Hollywood” is such a fabulous theme for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and there are so many ways to incorporate it into your party. And what teenager wouldn’t want to be a star for the evening?
Hollywood-themed invitations can look like tickets, such as these available at Bar Mitzvah Cards:
Put a glam touch on more formal invitations with graphics or wording, like these available on Zazzle:
Or just use a plain invitation but in “Hollywood Glam” colors such as red, black, gold and white. Add a rhinestone for some dazzle!
Don’t forget custom stamps like those above and below from Zazzle. They can be customized with a name, initials, date, or to coordinate with your invitations:
Offer your guests red or gold yarmulkes for your service, and glitz them up with gold writing. Sites like A1 Skullcaps offer custom yarmulkes in bulk in almost any material and color you can imagine. They also have a large selection of beautiful trims, including gold and silver metallics and different colors.
Have your guests make an entrance on a red carpet with stanchions:
You can even ask party motivators or friends to act as “paparazzi,” taking pictures of your guests as they arrive!
For place cards at your party use movie or show “tickets” with the date and location printed on them:
We love them propped in a tray with popcorn kernels!
