Candles are a beautiful addition to any Bar or Bat Mitzvah. They add a warm glow to any room and there are so many ways to incorporate them into your Mitzvah decor or party. A word of warning though–I always use LED candles in the tween area. You can never be too safe with unsupervised tweens and fire! In honor of the festival of lights, here are four different ways to easily incorporate different types of candles into your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
There are so many ways to do a candle lighting!
Lexi used floating candles.
Lindsey had a sparkly candelabra custom made.
Gabriella used Morrocan lanterns to fit with her globally-inspired theme.
Havdalah is a wonderful way to start your party.
Daniel and his family held their Havdalah candle high!
Floating candles make an easy and relatively inexpensive centerpiece on their own or can compliment a larger centerpiece.
Lexi had stemmed glasses with floating candles surrounding her centerpieces.
Jacob had his logo on the glass of his floating candles.
Lucas had Baltimore Ravens-colored ribbon around his floating candles.
Votives add a little something extra to a centerpiece or a cocktail table. There are some very realistic LED votives available and you can also get unique votive holders or candles.
Ilene had LED votives surrounding her centerpieces.
Jake used dramatic black votives in clear glass holders during his cocktail hour.
Jacob had cocktail tables with red votive holders during his cocktail hour.
Lucas incorporated votives inside of small centerpieces with his logo on the outside. Be careful with this!
Candles are a great, impactful and inexpensive addition to any Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Be creative and glow on! Happy Chanukah to you and your family!
