The Centerpieces

Table centerpieces can cost a fortune, but with a confectionary theme, this will not be the case. For the centerpieces, buy inexpensive vases at yard sales or at craft stores with coupons. Each table will be named for a different candy, and that is what you will fill up the vase with. For example, the Milky Way table will be filled with Milky Way bars, the gumdrops will be filled with gumdrops, eYou can also have small dishes of candy on the table for noshing. Personalized M&M's are another fun option that fits the theme.

Table Place Cards

This is an easy prop for your theme. You can use candy bars with wrappers telling the guests at which table they will be sitting. There are many online companies that will do this for you. 

Sign In Book or Sign In Board

At many Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, there is a sign in book or sign in board. You can create both of them on your own using binders or poster board. You can purchase candy stickers at craft stores or online.


Some of the giveaways for the DJ to dispense at your party can be candy necklaces and bracelets, bracelets, personalized lollipops or twisty pops, gummy lips, roll tape gum, and Pez dispensers.

Party Favors

This is the perfect time to set up your candy bar buffet! Give each guest at your Bat Mitzvah an empty plastic bag or small favor box to fill with goodies you have purchased before they leave the party. 

Another party favor is to give each guest a prepackaged bag of candy when they leave. A third idea for a party favor is a bouquet of lollipops.

You can also make your own CD with songs that fit the theme. Some ideas are:

The Candy Man by Sammy Davis, Jr

Sugar Sugar by The Archies

Lollipop by The Chordettes

I Want Candy by Bow Wow Wow

Candy's Room by Bruce Springsteen

Candy-o by the Cars

Candy Store Rock by Led Zep

So Like Candy by Elvis Costello

Candy Says by Velvet Underground

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy

I Love Rocky Road-Weird Al Yankovic

Peppermint Twist

Candy Girl-New Edition

Party favors for adults, if you choose to give one, can be a candy scented votive or personalized mints in tins.

Putting your candy Bat Mitzvah theme together for your daughter will create sweet memories for her, for you, and for your guests.
