My son is 10 and my daughter is 4. Neither one invites friends to their birthday party. Enjoy it while you can. She won't want to be around just family for too much longer. There is nothing wrong with not inviting the whole class.

Of course it is "ok"!

There is absolutely no need to invite the whole class to anything, especially things that cost an arm and a leg to pull off!

O course! It's HER birthday...not yours. Listen to her wishes. Children don't have to have birthday parties every year. I didn't as a child and neither did my children. There is no rule or law that says one must have a birthday party and invite the entire class.
Some parents in our community simply take cupcakes or a treat to be shared at the end of the day for classmates. A lot don't even do that.

If she doesn't want friends from school then I don't see a problem with it. If she wanted to invite 1 or 2 close classmates I doln't see a problem with that either. My son has been to numerous parties where the whole class was invited and as a parent I think that's a huge expense especially since I know that he's not close to all of his class mates. He's always been happy with his parties which is typically grandparents, uncles, and at most 10 friends.
