Balloon and Promise Ceremony
This is where the friends of the boy or girl, will blow up 10 balloons, either on the day or prior to the day, and inside each balloon, they will place a promise ( these are often very funny) inside each balloon, they will then be tied to a string, and on the day, the boy or girl, will pop these balloons, and they will read out to everyone, the promises they will make, now they are an adult..
Announcing in of Boy and Girl into function room/ ballroom
I think it is nice that they come in with all of their friends and parents, and maybe all dancing in together.
A blank card, will be given to the Boy or Girl, in order to write a memory of their big day, and a year later on their first anniversary, they will see what they wrote... ( A Card can also be given to the mother or father also, and they can all be opened at the same time )
Memories of the Boy or Girl
I will go around to some members of family and friends, to ask them to write something funny about the boy or girl, since they have known them. I will later on read them out, in order to reveal what was said, it is often very funny.
Messages from friends What the Bar/ Batmitzvah can do
The Bar/ Bat Mitzvah, have just turned 13 and 12 respectively. A Notebook will be given to the friends in order to write something funny, now he or she is a man or lady..........
Cake Feeding and Champagne Ceremony
This is when the boy or girl are invited to cut the cake, following this, I will invite them to put a piece of cake on a small plate, and I will ask the parents to feed the boy or girl the first piece, it is their day, so it is only fitting that they should taste the cake first... Then also around the cake will be a bottle of champagne with usually 3 champagne flutes, I will ask a member of family to come forward and open the bottle of champagne, he will then pour the champagne into each glass, I will then ask the boy or girl, to raise there glass, on my command, toasting to family and relatives / friends and absent relatives friends. I will then ask the parents and boy or girl to hold the glasses together all behind the cake, in order to make a lovely champagne shot..
Special Mannequin Challenge with sweets
This is so much fun. I will get everyone onto the dance floor standing still with there hands held out, I will then go around and try to distract people, and if they are undistracted and do not move, I will put a sweet in there hands.
Joining in on the dance floor
I feel as I am a big part of the day, I also feel that I should be soon as joining in at all times.
Top Table Kissing
This is where I invite the children of the opposite sex, to come to the main table, and give the Boy or Girl a kiss, this will bring a nice big smile to their faces....and a lovely memory...
Favour Bags with advice cards to be left in front of each guest at there tables, these are then filled in by the person , giving the Bar / Bat Mitzvah words of wisdom for the future !! I will then pick some of these cards randomly and read out these messages during dinner...
The Competition between the boys and girls begin, as the rope lowers lets see who can chimmi, when the rope is at its lowest.
Mum and Bar / Bat Mitzvah game
Lets ask mum 5 questions, and ask the Bar/ Bat Mitzvah the same 5 questions, lets see if they agree or disagree with the same answers or they may differ, great also for guest interaction.
Ten Fun Facts Ceremony
This is a great one, this is where I ask friends and family, some funny facts about the Bar/ Bat Mitzvah and I read them out.
This is where the friends all have a dance of , I put girls on one side of the dance floor, and boys the other , and we have a competition based on 5 dance offs ( It is always nice to see, the audiences reaction, as they will determine the winner of each dance of !!). How about Mum vs Barmitzvah / Batmitzvah.
I consider it very polite, to shake hands with all guests as they arrive .
Last Dances and Circles
I will get everyone into a nice big circle, I will ask the boy or girl, to around to say goodbye to everyone, I will then announce, the boy and his mother for the last dance, maybe even some sparklers.
These include Coordinating as well as announcing and officiating on the day, Keeping the atmosphere sky high, working closely with all fellow event professionals as a close team and helping them when needed, giving lots of advice at the pre function stage when needed, their is lots more as well as these.
- Making sure the Simcha will be a success, and taking all stresses of parents and family, as well as most importantly ensuring the boy or girl, will have a day to remember for a lifetime..
