No, I would ask her to pick several of her friends that you know she enjoys and plays with well. One of the biggest mistakes I see young families do is creating a party situation where a very young child is put in the situation to host a large crowd. They simply are not mature enough to play well, fairly and be kind to too many. Its overwhelming emotionally.
I've always suggested having as many children as the child's age. For your child that would be 3 close friends. If she can't choose, then you pick from ones you've seen play well together, who are learning to have good manners and have parents that are training their children well to be nice and kind to others. Rude children ruin every party.
Call their parents, or send a cute invite from the computer. Do something simple with this age, like play dress up and have a tea. OR have it at a local park and let them play on the swings, etc. and have a nice picnic.
