Transform Garage B into a travel adventure! Destination-themed b’nei mitzvahs transport your guests to far-off places without leaving the city. Imagine a Parisian café setup with Eiffel Tower decor, or an Italian piazza with gondola rides. Guests can receive passports as invitations, and food stations can serve international cuisine.

Or keep it local.  Perhaps Cape Cod holds special memories for your teen – celebrate the beauty of the seaside with a Cape Cod-themed b’nei mitzvah. This theme captures the charm of coastal New England with nautical elements and beach-inspired decor. Use blue, white, and sandy beige as your color palette. Decorate with seashells, anchors, and lighthouse centerpieces. Serve dishes that capture the Cape Cod vibe, including clam chowder and other coastal cuisine. Activities could include beach games or a boat ride simulation.

Sports / Favorite Professional Sports Teams

For example, you can bring the thrill of the NBA to your event with a Boston Celtics theme. Decorate the b’nei mitzvah venue with green and white, and use basketballs and jerseys as centerpieces. A photo booth with cutouts of favorite players can add fun to the celebration. You could even have a mini basketball court setup for a friendly game of hoops. Personalize the event with Celtics-inspired invitations, and offer guests custom jerseys or hats as party favors.

Or if your teen is a basketball enthusiast, expand the theme beyond a single team. Create a vibrant basketball arena atmosphere with scoreboard backdrops, bleachers for seating, and referee-themed staff uniforms. Incorporate interactive games like free throw contests or a three-point shootout. Custom basketballs, personalized water bottles, and sports bags make great keepsakes for guests.


Celebrate the beauty of the changing seasons with a themed b’nei mitzvah that captures the essence of your favorite time of year.  For example:

  • Après Ski

For those who love winter sports, an après ski theme can bring the cozy charm of a ski lodge to Garage B. Decorate with rustic wooden elements, faux fur throws, and twinkling fairy lights. Serve hot cocoa and comfort foods like fondue and makeshift s’mores. Activities can include a faux ski slope for photo ops, or a virtual reality ski experience. Warm up your guests with branded beanies and scarves as party favors.

  • Winter Wonderland

A winter wonderland theme transforms the venue into a magical snowy escape. Use white, silver, and icy blue to create a frosty ambiance. Crystal chandeliers, snowflake decor, and a snowy dance floor set the stage for a breathtaking event. Ice sculptures, a hot chocolate bar, and snow globe favors add to the enchantment. This theme is perfect for those who dream of a whimsical, elegant celebration.

Color Blocking / Neon

For a modern and vibrant celebration, consider a color blocking theme. This contemporary approach uses bold, contrasting colors to create a visually stunning event. Choose two or three colors and incorporate them into every aspect of the decor, from table settings to neon lighting. Bright backdrops, geometric patterns, and colorful balloons add to the festive atmosphere. This theme is versatile and can be adapted to suit any taste, making it a popular choice for a stylish and memorable b’nei mitzvah.
