Instead of calling up 12 relatives (or groups) and then the kid guests for #13, try to make there be more people for each candle. Also, instead of saying a long poem for each one, summarize the experiences in a few lines. Have the photographer ready to take the picture of the bar/bat mitzvah with the relatives while they are lighting the candles, not afterward.
