Is your birthday girl dreaming of a slumber party? Check out Birthday in a Box for some great tips and ideas to plan and host the “not-much-sleep”over bash. From invitations—if you’re up to a crafty challenge, print the party details on a clean, white pillowcase, let the birthday girl decorate it, and mail it to the guest—to decorations (hang white twinkle lights and provide plenty of blankets, sleeping bags, and pillows for lounging), movies (think G and PG rated films like High School Musical, The Princess Diaries, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), and what to serve for breakfast (an ultimate waffle bar with fresh fruit, chocolate chips, and whipped topping is sure to be a crowd pleaser), you’ll find inspiration to create the perfect celebration for your sleeping beauty.

Birthday in a Box also provides some important party tips: Make a few ground rules and discuss them with your daughter before the guests arrive, gather all families’ contact information in case of an emergency, and check with parents for any allergies or medications you may not know about.
