While many families are postponing celebrations for now, there are many ways to make the day of religious services special for your teen and include family and friends in inventive ways. Here, some of Atlanta’s top mitzvah planners – Tammie Wilson of The Party Girl Events, Marci Miller of The Perfect Day and Amy Ackerman of JDV Occasions share tips and ideas:
– An open house celebration with a small number of guests arriving at staggered times.
– Hiring a food truck to serve treats or celebration foods to the family or a small number of guests. Food trucks are great options for Shabbat dinner or Kiddush luncheon as well.
– Set up a party space or lounge outdoors, with seating at least six feet apart for guests to visit for short periods of time.
– Set up a socially distanced selfie station for the bar or bat mitzvah to take photos with family and friends who come by. Provide props, sanitizer, and spacing markers.
