Bat Mitzvah Venues in Toronto
Mazel tov! Your daughter is about to undergo
an important rite of passage – her bat mitzvah. While she prepares and studies
for the big day, you will need to decide what type of celebration to hold. This
is a day for family and friends to come together to wish your blossoming
daughter well on her life’s spiritual journey.
There are many ways to mark this milestone in
your daughter’s life. You might opt for a small luncheon for your child’s best
friends after synagogue. You could organize a family event in Israel in your
daughter’s honour. But many families decide to throw a celebration for both
friends and family at a party venue. This type of bat mitzvah party can be as
individual as your girl.
Speeches are often part of the day; your
daughter may have a bat mitzvah project to talk about, or thank you’s to say, and
family members or friends may have some words of wisdom to impart. You may
decide to have other items on the program, too – a slideshow of photos
featuring your daughter throughout the years, or a song sung by a talented
aunt, for example. Many children like to include dancing, so a DJ or a band may
be in order. And of course, you will want to feed your guests. Your options in
this regard are numerous, from a small deli buffet lunch to a multi-course
sit-down dinner. Don’t forget to order a bat mitzvah cake that fits your
Selecting a Venue
When you’re choosing a venue for a bat
mitzvah party, there are a number of criteria to consider:
- Cost. First,
make a rough budget for the event. Then contact various venues to see if they
offer bar and bat mitzvah packages. You may be surprised to find affordable
ways to celebrate in style.
- Food. Be sure
to consider only venues that have a top-notch kosher kitchen; the quality of
the food is an important aspect for everyone. Decide how formal you want the
occasion to be, and ask to see sample menus.
- Location. You’ll want a location that’s easy to find, not too far outside
the centre of the city, and that has the right capacity for your guests. A room
that’s too large makes the party seem poorly attended, but one that’s too small
can be uncomfortable.
- Décor. If you
choose a facility that isn’t attractive, you’ll have to spend a lot of time
decorating it to look festive. Choose a beautiful venue, and concentrate on
other aspects of the party.
