Bar Mitzvah's are not just a celebration, but also social in nature. Therefore, the occasion is festive. A variety of snacks on each table such as nuts and candy, while the main courses are being prepared would be great. Gift basket centerpieces are excellent, because they provide so much snack variety, beauty and color to the event as well.
