Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah parties are always fun to plan. It’s even more fun to see the finished look because the decor, onsite experiences, unique catering options, interactive games, and entertainment are almost always over-the-top beautiful, and unique!

When planning a Bar Mitzvah party, the latest Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah trends are critical to those going through the planning process because the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child and their parents want to host the best party that is trending yet unique to the mitzvah child as possible.

So what’s the latest in Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party Rental Trends? We’ve got you covered!

Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party Trends

Let’s start with discussing Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Party Trends for the overall event.

Flower wall social media backdrop at a Bat Mitzvah Social Media Backdrops

Instagrammable moments are everything today! While mitzvah parties are known for always having a Photo Booth or Step and Repeat area, social media backdrops are getting more creative by the day. From flower walls to custom backdrops, every Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah party has an area for selfies so that guests can take photos and post them to social media.

Custom Logo Mania

It used to be that mitzvah party decor was solely designed around a topic for a theme. Today, the decor scheme trend for mitzvah parties includes a unique logo (or logos!) designed specifically for the mitzvah child. The custom logo is now the first thing created and from there, the rest of the party is typically designed. The logo can be used in place of a theme or conjunction with a corresponding theme throughout the decor. Sometimes, more than one logo is created and used during the party and on the event swag. From custom lounge pillows to a monogrammed dance floor, to the event swag to matching the kippot to the party decor scheme, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah logo plays a huge role in the overall design of the party.

Rental Games For Party Entertainment

Rental games are a huge hit for the bar mitzvah party kids. In addition to a DJ and entertainment company, rental games such as air hockey and basketball provide unique entertainment during cocktail hour and some parties choose to extend the games throughout the party. This is a great trend as the rental games give kids something fun to do while keeping them engaged during the cocktail hour and then, if they don’t enjoy dancing, the games give them something to do throughout the party.

Eye Catching Themes

From Barbiecore design schemes to building a theme around favorite sports teams, stores, and/or activities,  to utilizing the child’s name in various ways for plays on words, eye-catching and unique themes are a must for Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties. It’s best to ask the child what they have in mind as a theme and then work with a decor vendor to flesh out the ideas and what it could look like throughout the layout.

Onsite Interactive Activations

Onsite activations at mitzvah parties add a fun, interactive experience to the party. From custom airbrushing stations to tattoos, makeup, and monogramming, there are endless activations available for parties today. These interactive stations can also double as the event swag. For example, if an item is custom airbrushed for guests, that would be the swag they take home vs providing a separate take-home item.

Unique Food and Serving Experiences

Bar Mitzvah catering should be unique in its offerings and serving styles. Eye-catching ways to serve and plate foods as well as specialty cocktails and mocktails are a must. A custom cocktail with a fun name is a major trend today for all events, especially mitzvah parties. It adds to the personalization of the event which elevates the overall experience.

All the Event Swag!

Mitzvah parties are known for event swag! Right now, the trend is towards custom logo sweatshirts, t-shirts given out on the dance floor as prizes, pajama pants, and fleece blankets, to name just a few ideas. Swag is typically stored in a logo backpack or sac, or a cute bag with a tag/label for each guest. While those are the Bar Mitzvah event swag trends, many event hosts try to think even further out of the box to come up with the most unique event swag that corresponds with the theme of the party and the personality of the child.

Event Rental Trends for Bar/Bat Mitzvah Parties

Now it’s time for our favorite topic…the event rental trends for Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Parties. Many party rentals are trending for mitzvah parties right now and are considered must-haves for the events.

Let’s take a look at the popular Bar Mitzvah party event rentals.

Comfortable Seating Lounges

Regarding Bar Mitzvah parties and Bat Mitzvah parties, the kids are typically given their own lounge area within the event layout. Comfortable lounge seating allows for unassigned seating and a fun, casual vibe while also distinguishing their section of the floorplan from the adults.

Renting lounge furniture is an excellent idea and adds a laidback yet trendy vibe to the layout. With a mix of hi-top tables and lounge seating, the kids at the party will have plenty of options for sitting and mingling with friends. Since kids typically don’t sit for long during a party, this a great option that is also a visually appealing event layout.

When adding lounge furniture to your party furniture rental order, ask your event rental specialist about matching pillows in the event color scheme or custom pillows designed with the event logo.

Dance Floors

If it can coordinate with the event theme, nothing is more fun than a black-and-white dance floor! While the event venue may have a dance floor or dance floor area in place, renting a black and white dance floor becomes the focal point of the event layout and a beautiful dancing spot that photographs so well!

Dance Floor Rentals


A popular bat mitzvah party trend right now is the use of cubbies. Cubbies can be rented for a variety of purposes for Mitzvah events. Cubbies are a cool aesthetic and make a great display area for favors and can also serve as an area for storage for the kid’s shoes, coats, and event swag.

Intricate Tabletop Design

Party rentals often include tabletop items for the table settings that will coordinate with the rest of the Bar Mitzvah color scheme. A trend towards party table and chair rentals for mitzvah parties allows the hosts to get creative within the layout. Instead of using what the venue has in stock, a local rental company will provide more options.

Renting banquet tables or using these tables in conjunction with round tables will create a unique vibe and enhance the guest experience. With the type of table selected, the tabletop design can be completed by working with an event rental specialist who can assist in finding the items that would match well with the decor and color scheme. From beautiful goblets to charger plates, there are many tabletop items available for rent that would create a unique tabletop design. Paired with a matching Chiavari chair, ghost chair, or Bellini chair, the table settings are complete.
