San Diego Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Gift Store

At Shop with Zara San Diego Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Gift Store , we are so proud to be a member of Best of Bar Mitzvah. As you read this, you are probably in the thick of planning for your kid’s BIG day, so in this blog we are going to share ONE unique, fun and COST SAVING idea.

We are essentially a gift store, with some Judaica items but in practice we are so much more. There is no company quite like ours and we pride ourselves on personal service that is truly unique. We have TONS of amazing items that will make your mouth water. We tell our customers that we sell Gifts to Give OR Keep. But what you might not know is that we do SO much more. We have super awesome products from Out of Town basket container ideas to the perfect Shawl and clutch bag for your outfit on the special day or night. We offer Judaica items, such as torah pointers, Kiddush cups, Shabbat candle sets, Judaica jewelry and that special “thank you” gift for your Hebrew teacher or Rabbi!

Today we are going to share with you a concept we use in almost every single event we help out on. Wouldn’t it be great to use the centerpieces and table decorations after the event, for hostess gifts etc..

To best illustrate our point we are going to use some of the photos we took at the last Bar Mitzvah we did last year. Mackie is a budding and talented artist and he wanted an ART theme for his luncheon event. His mom came over and after some creative and fun discussions we came up with a gorgeous centerpiece idea using a beautiful beaded basket we sell here at Shop with Zara. We matched it with some OUT of this WORLD crazy cool napkin holders and asked our favorite Flower artiste! Dalia from Lola Flowers, ( who, by the way, works exclusively with our clients!!) to design an ART themed centerpiece using the basket.

Dalia came up with an Orchid themed basket with tons of art supplies artfully ( of course) placed in the container. We sold Debbie, Italian Glass Shot glasses for the table numbers and Dalia made an artist Palette for the Challah for each table. We ordered very cool party favors of personalized paint tins filled with skittles and had unique Hamsa Beaded Key rings made. (We specially sourced them in Johannesburg South Africa from our favorite street vendor Veronica!)

After the incredibly successful and fun event, Debbie dismantled all the centerpieces at home and with her son, Mackie, delivered all the art supplies from the centerpiece to their favorite charity, the Friendship circle. Then she replanted all the orchids in her garden, where they are flourishing beautifully. The baskets and napkin rings were brought back to us where we gift wrapped them for her as a set. Debbie then used these as Hostess Gifts for ALL the fantastic friends and family that had helped her prepare for this special day. Some of the napkin rings were sent all over the world to special family members and friends who were not able to attend the Bar Mitzvah. We wrapped up the Italian Shot Glasses, to be used as gifts too. What a special idea to give a “ piece of Mackie’s Bar mitzvah” to friends and loved ones to remember such a special day.
