Piper was adamant about having a friend birthday party that was bigger in the number of guests. Last year we did something with just two friends. I think we'll alternate b/n big party/small party every other year. We invited several new friends from our neighborhood and one friend from preschool and her cousin. The theme was Fancy Nancy so each girl was asked to dress in their fanciest! We had a tea party, made crafts, and played outside! It was splendiforous!
