Recently we came across a question asking for ideas for a “good things come in small packages” themed bat mitzvah. Seldom do we come across new great theme ideas, so not surprisingly, we were hooked from the get go especially since there seemed to be so many positive ways to incorporate a lovely message into the celebration. Although we have not developed an absolutely complete theme package, this post is fairly comprehensive and covers most elements needed to put together a great party with an emphasis on charitable giving. This unique party theme would also be perfect for a baby shower, school fundraiser, quinceanera celebration, or birthday party or retirement party for anyone of petite stature.
Please excuse our mess. This post is in desperate need of an update. We are working on it. Please keep checking back!
The Charity (or Mitzvah) Project
I love the idea of knitting tiny hats and booties and blankets for neonatal units. In fact even if you don't knit, it might be worth learning! Either join a group already doing knitting, start a group of your own, or find another way to support these wonderful and fragile children arriving in the world as the tiniest of G-d's gifts. Look at the following organizations for inspiration or maybe contact your local hospital's neonatal intensive care unit to see if it has any particular needs.
Invitation Idea – The Smaller the Better!
We love the idea of using as small of a card as possible that will still hold all pertinent celebration information plus a small motif symbol on the top. RSVP cards work perfectly since they generally come with envelops. And Zazzle makes it easy to modify just about any design you fancy.
Centerpiece and Party Favor Ideas
Bonsai is the art aesthetic miniaturization of trees.
Skip the large plated dinner. Just serve lots of courses with bite size morsels (tapas, tea sandwiches, small plates) throughout the night.
Hope this helps jump start your own take on this great theme.
