Raising the bar on bar mitzvahs, South Florida-style

Bar and bat mitzvah celebrations in South Florida go all out with fairy-tale (or board game) themed parties or bashes that could be straight out of an MTV video or reality show.  I wrote a story for my paper Sun Sentinel on how families and their decorates are raising the bar on their child's bar and bat mitzvah celebrations and how technology is helping them push the envelope with set pieces and video mapping. It makes you want to be a kid all over again just to be a guest at these fetes.  (To the left, Andie Galpern's family gave her a Candy-land themed party, or 'Andieland' in Weston.)
