can you make a note in the invite that it is BYO soft beverages only make it a bit of a joke & hopefully noone will be offended. Unfortunately alcohol & kids parties dont mix (even though it sure does make them more bearable). Your party your rules.

I think if you don't want alcohol served at future parties i'd pop 'please no alcohol' on the invite or something to that effect.
I'm personally quite happy for people to bring and drink alcohol if we have a BBQ for Jasper's birthdays in the afternoon/evening which we have so far, but I am thinking once he's old enough that his parties are 'his' friends, and not our friends, that will certainly change.

LH, because it is your party I would just say on the invite "alcohol free kids party" at the bottom of the invites to close family who will bring drinks. I wouldn't supply it either if your preference is to not have drinks there, as I would imagine that would set the tone for them in what to expect every year.
I don't think that you are alcoholic if you have a drink or two at a kids party, but I personally don't understand the culture of having drinks at every single event/gathering. I also have never agreed on the "I have one or two drinks to show my kids responsible drinking". Well I never drink in front of my kids, and my parents didn't either, I can have one glass of wine at an event, I didn't need my parents drinking at my kids parties to show me how to drink 15 years later when I tured 18 . Suprised that some of the people advocating it on here are so high on facts and stats that they don't know the one that says normalising drinking at every event is what leads to a child modelling the thinking that you need drinks for every social event. It doesn't model moderation.
I just don't see the need? Why do people need to have drinks? What is wrong with other fun drinks.
I would be upset to leave my children at a kids party with adults there drinking, so I would say it is a definite no alcohol for school aged kids parties at least.

If they were able to drink in moderation, I'd probably be ok with it if we had parties in the arvo. But they can't, so ..........
