Personal Touch Can Tame Parties, Trim Expenses

Not too long ago, some Jewish mothers and I were discussing our kids' upcoming b'nai mitzvah. We were wondering how to tame the ever-escalating, three-ring circus that the parties have become. I have a feeling that back when the laws were written, our ancestors didn't anticipate financially disastrous theme parties, DJs with barely clad dancers, stiltwalkers, karaoke machines and make-your-own-T-shirt booths.
