Baby due around my daughters birthday--how to plan a party?

my 4th child is due around my daughters 5th birthday.. 3 days before. I know due dates usually are never right on, so im not sure how to plan her birthday party! she really wants to invite some friends, since we usually have family parties at the house.. and she wanted like a skating party or big princess party..
she just went through some major surgeries, so I want this party/birthday to be special for her, and not slacked on due to a new baby coming.

im unsure how to "plan" for it.. since obviously people will need to know in advance.. but i cant have a party and miss it because im in the hospital!.. how would you do it to make sure the party is about HER even though there is a baby about to come!

  • Well would she be ok having her party the week before you are due? Then you can have it all planned out and if you go into labor then you go into labor! She is old enough to understand that her newest sibling may want to crash the party :-)

  • Maybe you could schedule it for a week or two after her party? I think that would only work though if you have someone that could watch the newborn! OR you could do her party a couple weeks early. She will understand!

  • Try scheduling a week or two early or later just explain to her that your not sure but her baby brother or sister may want to crash her party and you want her to have fun and enjoy herself. I feel you. Goodluck with the party planning.

  • You can either plan her special party the weekend before you or due or schedule it the weekend after . The new baby can be part of her Birthday party. Give her the choice of when she wants to have it. tell her also if she wants they can start celebrating can be there special party or time together
