LOL. I ALWAYS eat before i go to a party, that way, i don't have to bother and am free to chase my toddler around if need be.. but yes, that party was a funny one in the sense of everyone b!tching ''what food?!"" behind the hosts back.
    This wasn't a kids party.. but that reminds me of my friends 21st who said "Don't eat lunch as I'll be providing the food". So we didn't get lunch. Turn up and seriously there was no food except a couple of biscuits and than there were jelly shots and stuff. Was very hungry =\

    I always make sure there's enough food for the parents at birthday parties, but I don't do anything especially for them. ie I'll put out party pies, chips, little cakes, fruit skewers or something, enough for the kids and adults.

    I don't expect parents to be catered for if its at a price-per-head venue (like a play centre or something), particularly if there is the option for parents to buy their own food if they get hungry.
    If its at someones house and they don't provide anything for the adults I think thats a bit rude though.

    I don't expect it, and from parties that we've been too, it has been evenly split about supplying or not supplying. However, whenever we have a party here, I always supply food and drinks for the adults and siblings.

    Oh, I agree with those who said they don't expect fancy "adult food," platters or anything. I think that adults are more than able to eat the same stuff their kids are eating. I over-cater all the time, and definitely just expect that adults are able to eat kids food, so just make extras, rather than special "adult" foods.

    Default Do you expect food & drinks to be supplied to the parents at a kids party?

    No I don't, I think if adults are hungry they can wait or they can nibble at the kids food.....

    I don't expect it but its nice when it is provided.
    At my kids parties i provide the adults with a few bottles of soft drink and plastic cups and put a selection of food on a small table away from the kids party table. Its usually just extra party food, chips n dip etc

    I took DD1 to a kids party a while ago and the mother had a patents table set up with lovely sandwiches, quiche, cheese n fruit platter and more it was awesome but totally unexpected

    We have our kids parties at home - generally I do an "adult platter" and we feed everyone a sausage sizzle.
