    Alternatively you could always mention it when they RSVP. You could mention they were welcome to bring a bottle if wine if they wanted a drink with their lunch.

    I don't find it bogan at all. But then again I used a strider plus and have down lights.

    Alcohol is standard at all the 1st birthdays I have been invited to. No one gets wasted. We provided alcohol at both our kids birthdays and their subsequent birthdays we provided a couple of bottles of wine for family to have a drink with cake.
    Our friends and families are adults. They know how to drink in moderation. The main focus is still on the children.

    Strider - check. Down lights - check. Booze at kids parties - check. Kids with misspelled and/or unusual named - check check. Definitely a bogan.

    I'd say to byo because it tells guests that there will be alcohol and that they're welcome to bring their own. I've been invited to gatherings and not known if it would be okay to bring wine or if it would be wildly inappropriate.

    It's only bogan if you're at a picnic drinking booze from a cooler on a coffee table in a Holden. Meanwhile, your child (lovingly named Alyczandrah) is sitting in a strider, beautifully illuminated by the down lights. Ooh, and you're all wearing Ugg boots.

    Personally I wouldn't provide or say byo. That's only because majority of our friends/family don't drink.

    If you normally have drinks at kids parties, or the people you're inviting do, then mention that it's byo if they want to drink.
