Birthday Party For DD

Her birthday is May 6 and she wanted to have a birthday party. Last year we had our friend and his 2 siblings for her party. Plus our whole family of course. There are 14 people total and we did it here in our house. Now we are planning about inviting some of here classmates from the public school and do the party in a bowling alley.

It would be $10 per child, they can bowl for two hours, soda for a drink (I wish they have juice but I can do), pizza or hot dog and they provide napkins, plastic spoons & forks and plates. They also take care of the invitations and I provide the names and addresses and the birthday cake.

Please help with the situation here: Should I invite kids that she does not know from her class? I don't have anything to say to their parent/s when they come. Should I also invite the kids she know on her pre-K class? At least these people I saw and talk to so many times while waiting for my DD to come out of her class. Or is that too much because they haven't seen each other since June 2008? BTW, this is only the second birthday party she will have that other kids are invited. In addition, please give me some idea on what to put inside the goody bag something cheap yet nice.

Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You have choices:

just invite girls (or boys)
invite everyone
invite a handful (2-3 best friends)

If you invite more than 3 you will hurt feelings. That's my take.

Thanks for the comment Nicole, I will take to consideration.

i think you should invite people from pre-K class too. she knows them and will enjoy with them.

For goody bags you can buy things and make your own goody bags for instance pink bags for girls and blue for boys and you can buy stickers to put on these bags. something like Dora theme or barbies for girls and sponge bob or some other for boys.

Buy some nice candy, stickers, marshmallows and little items for the bags. children will love it.
