Pictures really are worth a 1000 words. We had my daughter's three closest friends over for her third birthday party (and invited their families, too). It seemed like everyone enjoyed the day - even the boys (who had to put up with a princess cake, princess decorations ... but also enjoyed running all over and playing some ball outside). Most importantly, my daughter enjoyed her day ... and didn't want ANYONE to leave when the party was over. Now, isn't that the definition of success when you're dealing with a three-year-old? (Funny to call her a three-year-old now.)
Happy Birthday Princess!
