Bar/Bat Mitzvah schemes and themes that will rock your almost-teen's planet

Updated Oct 12 2015

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are Jewish coming-of-age rituals — in other words, when you're Jewish and turning twelve (girls) or thirteen (boys) you have an awesome excuse to throw a helluva party to celebrate. Of course, after your party you're then considered to be responsible for all of your actions, so you know, welcome to adulthood and all of that.

I've been scoping out the internet for some spectacularly offbeat Bar or Bat Mitzvah themes, like this chemistry-themed Bar Mitzvah from Invites & more.. By Angela:

It's a LAB. GAAAHH the cute.

I'm a big-time fan of ANY party that features a gigantic LED dance floor, and this Bar Mitzvah shot by Leigh Webber Photography looks pretty sweet:

I saw this Alice in Wonderland-themed Bat Mitzvah a few places online (especially on Pinterest) and finally emailed event planner Maya Kalman to get a few snaps:

…don't mind if I do.
