Your kids, their party. You don't want alcohol don't have it. If people can't respect that then I would be seriously considering if I want them in my life. Like others have said if you can't enjoy yourself without alcohol you have an issue.

No way in hell is alcohol allowed at my kids parties.
My dd went to a birthday sleepover party once where she had to ring me, to come get her because there was a alcohol fueled brawl. The police arrived at the same time we did. We wouldn't have allowed her to go if we had known that alcohol was going to be there. We have never made that mistake again.

My father was an alcoholic & yet I personally dont have an issue with RESPONSIBLE drinking by adults. Our friends & family are all great people who love to have a drink - socially & celebratory too - including at a child's birthday party. Providing it is in an appropriate place ie: home & everyone is being responsible I dont see an issue.
Guests at DD1 1st Birthday party brought eskies & enjoyed a few drinks which doesnt bother me at all. And her 2nd birthday dinner was in a pub! Drinking doesn't necessarily mean getting blind rotten drunk.
But LH - you have to do what YOU feel comfortable with - it is YOUR child & you set the boundaries & rules for the day

I'm not a big drinker, so I haven't had a drink at DS's or any other childrens party. DF however, not a big drinker either. Although, he does have a couple after lunch at DS's birthdays. FIL, his brother, and a mate usually have one with him. It's never a problem. But I would be quite irked if people showed up expecting alcohol!
