Why would you let her invite 44 people if you weren't prepared to deal with them?

Then you deal with it. Have someone on standby to run to the store and pick up extra food, or pizza. Whatever. Have lots of activities planned. Did you have an rsvp attached?

Greet the girls with pretty Lays from the dollar store (take home gift) grab some umbrellas for their drinks and serve hawaiian punch. Have a Hawaiian fruit bar with skewers where the girls can make their own fruit skewers. Have a "Hawaiian" hula hoop contest (download Hawaiian drum music for the background) Then serve Hawaiian pizza, and others options and crank up the music- whoever their latest heartthrob is...then sit back and have a piña colada!

Good question, Dove. I was wondering the same thing but it slipped my mind to ask. ;)

Elizabeth - We had a BBQ reception too! LOL I was lucky, though, my in-laws did all of the food planning, preparing, serving and clean up. It was great.

LOL we had 40 at our wedding. It was a lot of work too..looking back I really wish I had hired some help for the reception part...silly me..I thought I'd have guests that would help bring the food out and clear the table ..all the things that need doing when you have a BBQ reception.

That's a lot excessive. Too many people for a 13 year old..that's bigger than some people's weddings LOL

I think the odds are that not all will show up. Being that it is summer you will find that some may be on vacation with their families BONUS! Next time invite less maybe and call for RSVP's then if there aren't enough...invite some more??

Ah, it is only for a couple hours and will be a day your daughter (and you) will never forget. If they all show up, wing it. They will have fun, regardless. Just make sure - like Little Miss said - to have a way to get enough food, for them all. ;)

Have fun and good luck!!
