Of all Simchas, a Bas Mitzvah celebration is the least defined. As a result, each individual family celebrates this milestone in its own unique way. As there is little in the way of protocol, many families tend to follow the example set by their community. Whether that involves a large affair or one that is celebrated by close family ,the sky's the limit to the many ideas that can be adapted for this occasion.
Here is a sampling of ideas for a Bas Mitzvah Party. As I've said in the past, this is not an “all or none” presentation; there’s something here for every taste and budget. Plan ahead and look to make the preparation itself a fun family project in the days (and weeks) leading up to the party.
These cool and refreshing, easy to make trifles will add color and pizaz to your sweet table (as long as they last- that is-whenever I make them they’re one of the first thing to go). Alternately, they can be served in a larger cup as a refreshing start to your meal.
