My best friend is throwing me a baby shower in a month, the guest list is 35 people and if we include their children it will be 35 adults plus 15 children.
I feel it's too much to expect my friend to host a shower for 50 people, because if I include children they will need to be catered for, entertained, bigger location etc.
Do you think it's rude to not invite children? Should I specify no children or not, knowing if it's not specified many guests will just bring their kids along. Or should I just include them and contribute to the cost of the shower.
Also, if kids do come along, should I organize some type of entertainment for them, I don't want to ruin my friends plans by turning the shower into a kids party, but I also don't want bored kids running around and irritating other guests.
UPDATE: Thanks again for the replies! The majority opinion seems to be that not inviting children is fine, so I think I'll go with that. Shoud I write "adults only" or "no children" etc on the invite, or will writing the Mums name only suffice?
