Ask her who she wants to invite and give her a limit, ie 5 kids or 10 kids, and only send invites to those kids. Ask the teacher to slip the invites discreetly into school bags to save hurt feelings to those not invited.

My eledest had a party at home but with a sleepover ... only 1 friend was able to stay (1 ended up poorly) but the other friends came for the party/cake. There was 7 friends. It was a beeping nightmare but if I am honest you only need 1 child to make it that way and I ended up with one of those. Anyway to point further I have a fairly big house and it was more than enough .... her sister is having the same party/sleepover and both were able to invite their closest group of girl friends.

Oh and I'm dreading the youngests one after her big sisters. This time it's MOVIE night in one room. ha!

On the flip side i have done what someone else mentioned when it's been obvious the whole class has been invited and weighed up how much of a friend the child is (also because it's my time with my daughters too).

I'd be scared all turn up so I agree with your Mum!

I say let your LO choose. That's what we done recently for Maci's party. Why have kids there who she doesn't like or play with

I'd just let your lo choose who she wants to invite. I wouldn't do girls only invites, as there are likely boys she plays with, too, and boys who would have just as much fun at the party as the girls. If you can only accomodate about half the class, don't invite the whole class. You never know how that'll turn out, and you could end up with everyone showing up which would be a chaotic disaster.
