Hockey is a great theme for a bar or bat mitzvah. There are so many fun ways to incorporate hockey paraphernalia into your party decor, invitations and favors. You can also do a fun take on stadium food with upscale burger bars, nacho stations and different food carts. Check out the following photos for inspiration; you can turn your dance floor into a “rink,” use pucks as invitations or escort cards, and offer your guests a delicious hot chocolate bar along with dessert!
