    Going to go against the grain here and say I'm not a fan of kids pub parties. partly bc of the whole alcohol-kid thing... although it sounds very fun and family oriented.

    But DD has been invited to a couple and the main thing I don't like about it is the cost to the guests. She is too young to just drop off, which means I have to stay, spend $30+ in food and drink for both of us. Then we have to buy a present too. A little kids party has now become a $50 affair which we couldn't afford. The parents said they loved it bc it was so easy and cheap, but it wasn't cheap for the guests.

    Having said that, you do what you like, just another perspective

    Would it not be cheaper to have a party at home? 4 packets of chips and a cake and you're all set

    I totally get what you mean, and it was one of the major cons I mentioned to DH. I was going to tell people no presents and just to buy their lunch instead but I know most people would still buy a present. And the meals there are slightly more then a normal bistro, might have to reconsider it.

    I really really wish I could but my house is tiny with no backyard so there is no way I could fit even a small amount of people in

    Yeah I can see your point, what we did was made it a morning tea and we paid for coffee/cake etc...... The dining area of the tavern we went to was completely separate to the public bar and had a wonderful kids playground

    Is that possible OP?
