Re: How Much Henna to Make or Buy?

experiment, you should probably stick with what you know works, even
if that is premixed paste. If you have time to experiment try some
different henna powders and recipes to see which works best for you;
there is nothing better than homemade paste.
As for quantities, make sure you have a lot for a bar
mitzvah...teenagers LOVE henna even if they think of it as a fake
tattoo. If one kid is getting it everyone will want it. I usually
have 2-3 bottles for a three-hour event tho for a party of teenagers
I would have 3-4.
Anne and I did a smallish bar mitzvah of about 30 kids and we were
SLAMMED! The two of us could barely keep up AND we had an
assistant. The boys were crazy, jumping all over our books and our
table, screaming at us, wiping their designs off and asking for
another, popping balloons in our faces and so on! I learned a few
things from that event: 1. give out sequetially numbered stickers as
a waiting list, if you use an actual list you will be screaming names
and the kids will often lie and pretend that they are the person you
just called; 2. print out all your information like after-care
instructions, FAQ so you can just hand them a piece of paper instead
of explaing the same thing over and over and over at high-volume.
Good luck and let us know how it goes!
