    I wouldn't provide it, I don't like the adults drinking at my kids party.

    At a park, no.

    At my house, I have had beer and wine in the fridge, but it didn't get used. I didn't offer it to anyone at my daughter's 5th birthday in May, probably because I forgot as I never drink. I was offered a glass of wine at a 5 year old's party I went to on Sunday at their house.

    As for the OP. if I received that invite I wouldn't bring any alcohol. I don't think you need to mention it at all
    I wouldn't drive with my kids in the car even after one drink.

    I don't drive after drinking either, but she is well within her rights - according to the law.

    I only attend kids parties if I can get drunk.

    It honestly doesn't bother me, so long as no ones drunk. Can't say I've ever provided alcohol for a kids party. But each to their own.

    Thanks everyone. I might invite people to byo alcohol, I don't think anyone I'm inviting to the party would get drunk and I think a few glasses of wine or beer is nice with a picnic and might add to the party atmosphere.

    We have always had and supplied alcohol at our kids parties, it's generally a very big get together and it's nice to have a glass of wine with friends and have a chat. Most of the man folk will have a beer and a good chin wag in many ways I think it is part of our Australian culture it's what we do. Nobody ever gets rottenly drunk.
