What would you do?

We have started to think/plan Buggy's 3rd birthday party. Since she has a late birthday, she is in the 2 year old class at school. I wanted to have a mermaid party for her. She's very into that right now. I thought about inviting the little girls from her class (3 of them), a few from church, and some other friends. Thing is, I'm thinking some of the other kids might be too little to do all I had planed. I'm thinking now we can have everyone over for ice cream, bounce house and gifts. School is just starting and I don't know how other parents will feel about getting birthday invites already (and still maybe a bit early for the younger ones). I'm stuck! Should we just do a family one with X (cousin), or have her mermaid party with her little girl friends. A third choice is to just invite the friends she already has and come up with a new theme. What would you do?


  1. Do the mermaid party, but maybe have something besides the bounce house for smaller kids. 2 year olds can eat ice cream, but I think the bounce house might be too much. Whatever you do, I would keep the mermaid theme. Even if you just have family over, keep the mermaids. That is just too cute. And don't worry about the parents getting birthday invitations at the start of school. They always have the option to say no, right? That's what school does--makes friends, and creates birthday parties! :-)

  2. I don't think I'd invite the school friends - but the friends she has now and the ones at church would be nice. And since she's the Birthday Girl - let her be the special Mermaid and the other can come as they come (make them Mermaid hats or something). I wouldn't change the theme of her party since I don't think the kids would care one way or the other, as long as there's icecream and cake. But I know it'll all work it's self out and you'll have great pictures to post too. I can't wait since Hi there! I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll come visit and follow my blog too so we can keep in touch and be blogging pals. Can't have too many of those, right? Thanks!

  3. I say invite everyone some may be too small for the bounce house but you could have a session just for the smallers ones to get in and not worry...just a thought...

  4. I would invite just the friends she has already and keep the mermaid theme. After all, the birthday is for her.

  7. You have a new follower! I think you should have the mermaid party. Just make sure to have activities for the little ones. As long as you have things for all the ages to do then you are all set! A bounce house is fun for everyone! You can have a table for finger painting or stickers, etc. Come and visit Mama's Little Chick.
