    I think that sounds good.

    I really don't know anyone who goes to a 1st bday, particularly in the middle of the day, to get written off. But a nice glass with lunch is nice to have!

    We always have alcohol at our kids parties, but then again, we always invited heaps of adults as well, family, friends etc. No one gets written off - but I have to say. I find it easier to deal with all the screaming with a nice bubbly in my hand.

    We are having DS 1st birthday party in the park this Sunday and will be providing beer and wine. Seems to be standard for the parties we've been to, but saying that I wouldn't expect it to be supplied.

    I would so people know they CAN drink. Some people might be unsure if they are allowed to drink at a kids party..unless they know they can then i would not worry about it

    Hahaha yep!

    Just for everyone's information, we often have parties at the park, and I checked with the council where we are and alcohol is fine legally as long as its under X amount of adults drinking (50 maybe here?). I assume this is so people can have a picnic with a beer or glass of wine, which is all anyone has ever consumed at our kids parties.

    Obviously you'd have to check with your local council because I'm pretty sure where we used to live drinking was not allowed in a public place at all.

    I think if you or anyone in the family will be bringing alcohol then its better you tell people to bring their own.

    I wouldn't bother mentioning anything about alcohol. Tell them to bring their own chairs but don't mention alcohol. If they want to bring alcohol, they will. There's no need to bring it up or even concentrate on it.

    I assume drinking at a kids birthday is bogan, just like striders, coffee tables, Holdens and down lights.
