Counting Candles on The Stir

Do invite ``everyone.`` If you (understandably) don't want to invite everyone from your child's softball team or girl scouts troop, prepare to pare down your guest list a lot. ``If you only leave out one or two kids, that won't look good,`` warns Helen Holden, co-founder of the kids birthday party planning site and mom of four-year-old twins. Instead, keep the group to an intimate and logical core: Invite just girls to your spa party, or just two or three close buddies. ``That way, parents will be much more understanding of the fact that their kid is not invited should they find out,`` says Holden.
