As a party planner in the Charlotte Community, I am always looking to keep up with the Bar/Bat Mitzvah trends. Kids have ever-changing ideas of “cool”, and being able to impress their guests with a hot new idea can be a mom’s big dilemma. Well, from one mom to the masses, I have compiled a list of the newest Bar/Bat trends and where to find them locally to keep you sane and your celebration top notch!
1. Video Game Truck and Mobile Laser Tag from “GameTruck Charlotte”. What could be better for that teenage boy than conquering quests and blasting bad guys with all his favorite friends and family? Mobile Game Trucks give kids the thrill of at home gaming in a party atmosphere. The games become interactive, and a fun way for all ages to connect and compete.
2. Mobile Spa from “A Touch of Grace Mobile Spa” in Charlotte. Every teenage girl wants to be pampered and feel beautiful on her special day. But getting a spa day brought to you and all your guests is a dream come true! The mobile spa can come to your event and offer special spa packages for all ages.
3. Candy, S’mores, Ice Cream and Popcorn Buffets from “SugarPop’s Candy” in Mooresville. Kids and Candy go hand-in-hand, and the hottest new trend is bringing the candy shop to you! SugarPop’s Candy delivers extravagant displays of candy, sweets, popcorn, s’mores, (and more), that are delicious, affordable and truly impressive. Each table they create is unique and fully customizable to the theme and colors of the event. As if that’s not enough, they offer free consultations and candy tastings for all events.
4. Mobile Boutique/Style Truck from L Squared Boutique in Mooresville.
Shopping is the new “girl’s best friend”, and shopping with all your friends and family is a perfect way to spend your big day! From fashion shows, to style tips and tricks, there’s something fun for everyone to enjoy when the Style Truck rolls up. Guests can browse and buy the newest fashions right there at the event. It is sure to be a big hit.
5. Silent Disco Dance Party from Silent Storm Sound System (national).
Silent Discos are the newest trend in parties and teens all over the world are jumping on board. Guests are provided with wireless headsets that tune out the outside world and bring the hottest music directly to their ears. As guests are transformed to the raging party, all underneath a set of headphones, the atmosphere outside the headsets is quiet. Silent discos are the ultimate teen dance parties and provide all guests with access to great music at their own personal pace.
