First and foremost, you want to set some ground rules you feel are important to you and discuss them with your daughter. Make sure you have emergency contact information for every person attending. Find out about any medications, food allergies and the like. While you do want to have some fun activities planned, it is also important to have some downtime where the girls can just be girls, hang out and chat.
When it comes to invitations, you can just go the standard route or use a sleepover theme. Buy white pillowcases and print the details of the party on them and mail them out. Take a regular card invitation and punch a hole in the side where you can attach a toothbrush and tube of toothpaste. Or hand-deliver a message in a bottle.
What birthday party would be complete without goody bags? For this type of party, a fabric tote with personalised labels is a great idea. Fill it with all sorts of fun things that girls that age will like. Nail polish is a particularly good idea since your daughter and her friends can give each other manicures and pedicures.
There are so many fun activities you can do with the girls. Arts and crafts is always fun—they can bead jewelry or decorate a plain t-shirt with puff paint and other items. Fill a jar with gum or some other treat and have the girls guess how many pieces are in it, with the winner taking all. If you have even numbers of girls, a game like seeing who can wrap the other one in toilet paper the fastest can be fun. The girls can also decorate pillowcases with that they will give to your daughter for her birthday—they can write messages, pictures, whatever. Throughout the night , take lots of pictures of the party and of each girl individually. Mail the pictures out with the thank you cards.
Any old party food will do, but if you want to do something a bit more special, here are a few ideas. Serve freshly popped popcorn in regular bags, and provide toppings the girls can choose from, such as cinnamon, chocolate sprinkles, powdered cheese or salt and pepper. Make regular foods more fun by using cookie cutters to cut them into interesting shapes, such as peanut butter sandwiches, cheese or deli meats. Breakfast can consist of pancakes and toppings used to make funny faces, or you can set up a waffle bar.
