A Bat Mitzvah is the Jewish celebration when a girl becomes a woman, and all girls love music. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. Although the feast and party supplies should be Jewish, the music does not have to be traditional Jewish music. This will be the part that your daughter will want to have the most say in. Let her plan the music to let her feel like she has an important part in her celebration.

The father should pick one song himself that the daughter does not know about. This will be the father and daughter dance. Little girls love to dance with their fatherís and the song should be special. I Hope You Dance by Leanne Womack, and Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle are both perfect songs to dance to.

If your daughter is having a hard time making music selections offer the following songs as ideas:
Beautiful- Christina Aguilera
Girls Just Want To Have Fun- Cindy Lauper
God Mustíve Spent A Little More Time- NSYNC
Mama Iím A Big Girl Now- From Hairspray
Unwritten- Natasha Bedingfield
If your daughter does not know some of these songs play them for her. She is sure to enjoy them, and her friends will love dancing to these fun melodies. Creative suggestion: Avoid waiting until the last minute to pick things out or pick them up, no need to add more stress. Everyone does not drink alcohol, be inclusive when planning a get-together and have a choice of drinks that include non-alcoholic opinions. When decorating a room to match a given theme or idea explore not just the horizontal space, but the vertical space as well.

Homemade party supplies such as balloon bouquets, costume jewelry and party streamers are the perfect additions to a Bat Mitzvah party. Celebrating a special event with outstanding event adornments, designs and materials are always a great addition to a festive celebration and fun designs that are perfect for guests of all ages will boost up the event and make the guests feel very special.

This simple activity will add a homemade twist to any Bat Mitzvah party.

Handmade party supplies such as homemade placemats, name plates and tablecloths will be very well received at a Bat Mitzvah and will compare to no others.

The Bat Mitzvah event may not have been around as long as the Bar Mitzvah, but that doesnít mean a thing when it comes to celebration. Nearly all parents will find it very beneficial to plan the event in advance. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. Any host of a young womanís Bat Mitzvah party will usually have tons to do for the event. It can take a long time to properly plan the Bat Mitzvah party but itís worth it to see all your guests celebrating that special event.

The Star of David invitation is appropriately themed with the religious nature of the Bat Mitzvah and itís very pretty in a bright blue color with sparkling silver on the front. Go ahead and send thank youís to everyone after the party using the same card. Donít get confused who you are addressing the thank yous to. It can be a little embarrassing to find that you sent a thank you address to Aunt Marie to your nephew Ben. There are plenty of plates, napkins, and cups with the traditional Star of David symbol on them, as well in that same blue color so that the whole party matches.

Because girls love todance, good dance floor prizes are essential for any party with music. Hand out some inflatable guitars, microphones, and saxophones to the winners of your dance floor games. Another fun idea if the Bat Mitzvah party is during the summer months, is to turn it into a Hawaiian Luau theme
Also, donít forget to put up a Bat Mitzvah banner sending a joyful Mazel Tov to the young woman. You can personalize many party banners when you purchase them with simple wishes or phrases of congratulations. These add a nice touch to the banners.

Blue or Silver gift bags are nice bags to place the gifts for the young woman into when you are going to a Bat Mitzvah party. The Bat Mitzvah gift is usually money or a savings bond for college, but you can certainly place something more traditional in a bag such as a silver picture frame or a Star of David pendant.
