This will be my daughter's first birthday that she wants to do something with her preschool friends, instead of just the usual family party. So I'm new at this. I want to keep costs down a bit, so I'm wondering if it would be appropriate to have her choose two of her friends and take the three girls to Ci Ci's Pizza. Only three boosters will fit in our car. Is two friends enough, or is that going to cause issues at school for her, since I can't possibly ask everybody in the class? There are arcade games at the place, plus a buffet style layout with pretty good salad and fairly edible pizza and dessert. Maybe I could do goody bags or something. Would that be appropriate, or would parents of four- and five-year-old girls be wary of sending their angels off with someone they only know in passing from school? Should I go back to the drawing board? I'm really not in my element here, and since I had lousy birthdays as a kid, I want my daughter's to be unforgettable.

^^^ All great ideas. I would also see if her preschool would allow you to send in a treat for her to share with the whole class. That way no one feels completely left out if there is discussion among those invited. And if you do it the way others have suggested, you could invite all girls so no feelings are hurt. Have fun :)
