10 Ideas for a Beach Theme Mitzvah, Wedding or Party

Whether you’re a jet-setting couple or a beach-loving teen, we are absolutely loving the idea of a beach theme for your wedding, bat/bar mitzvah, Sweet 16 or party. You can showcase this theme in the hot summer months or in the winter – when if our feet can’t be in the sand, our heads and hearts certainly are! Using summertime decorations like sand, beach balls, starfish, and sea shells are all fun – not to mention inexpensive – ways to incorporate this theme. The traditional nautical color scheme of white and navy is popular, while including a bright pop of color such as coral or turquoise can really make your decor stand out.

Here are 10 ideas we’re loving for your beach theme!

Klezmer Music by Alicia SvigalsAlicia on Misconceptions about klezmer:  “It is not all fast ‘hora’ music; klezmer has the full range of moods, modes and tempos, from solemn ceremonial melodies, to elegant cocktail hour background music, all the way up to the crazy fast stuff.”

“Klezmer is a cousin of “Hebrew” music, aka “simkhe (simcha) dancing music” – the music popular at orthodox and modern orthodox events – but it is not the same.  We do mix that repertoire in whenever we have a crowd that will enjoy it though.  But klezmer is essentially non-religious, instrumental party music and you don’t have to be religious for it to be on your playlist!” READ MORE ......
