    Also I think its really strange that people have alcohol at christening after parties, children parties etc. Its always the case for us cause dh's family are like that which erks me greatly. Children and alcohol isnt a good mix. It looks off but as I said that maybe just me.

    Maggie Beer does a gorgeous non alcoholic sparkling which I served at a baby shower recently. Looks great and tastes awesome!

    I would have thought not, but the last baby shower I went to the host got pretty tiddly, along with quite a few guests! At my son's first birthday last month I was shocked when FOB's relos arrived with drinks! I thought it was rather odd at a child's birthday party!

    This! Everyone coming to mine will be driving anyway so it's not like they're coming over for a p!ss-up . Just a glass or two with the finger sandwiches, scones, cupcakes etc... all very civilized

    Part of my job is to attend baby showers and I have been to about 50ish. I would say that approx 90% of hosts offer alcohol.

    Wow, that's a lot of exclamation marks. You know, there is nothing wrong with having no alcohol at any adult only event. Personally I don't have baby showers, and try to avoid them lol.
