That poor kid is going to be known for having a nutcase mother who invoices people for his party and is so spiteful she'd rather spend 4 times the cost of the 15 to take it to court.
I'd love to do this! Both my kids are winter babies, worse still Tassie winter babies. So we always have to fork out for some kind on party place. I used to host at home but it's crazzzzy with school ages kids and I hate the chaos being contained to indoors!

I will admit I have rsvp'ed that we were coming and not showed twice with no contact.
The first time there was 6 weeks between the invite and the party and I just plain forgot. My preggo brain was in full force.
The second time I was in the er. It really wasn't even in my thoughts.
It guest rsvping and not turning up happens at almost every event. It's happened to me probably 45 times ( over the 68 of my kids parties) It's annoying but Seriously life happens. Missing one party is not freaking life or death.
This parent has set this kid up for a horrid time. No one will ever want to go to his parties or even a play date with him ever again.

It's incredibly rude not to RSVP or to RSVP yes and then not turn up.
But... Retaliatory rudeness is not cool. This is not only rude but cray cray and her poor kids will be lucky if anyone comes to their parties from now on!

What is more annoying is when you invite one child and the parents turn up with the whole family without asking and you don't have enough lolly bags etc.

Wow, taking it a bit far. We just don't invite the no shows (the ones who dont let us know I mean) the next time. Especially if it's happened more than once and it's a pay venue.
We've been lucky with parties- wherever the kids want to go get you to make a deposit, and pay the rest later. So you only pay for who turns up anyway. Sometimes there's a "booked for X amount" fee, but it's never more than $20.
One kids in DSS' class has not turned up to the first 5 parties we threw (after rsvp yes, and the parent saying they would stay too- so pay for kid and adult) so we didn't invite him to the last one. His parents complained, and we said it was a numbers issue. DSS didn't want him there anyway.
How hard is it to let someone know you can't attend...

But I'm still with the other parents, I'm not paying for someone I know won't come.
They never ever have given a reason, even after parents casually say, "Oh I didnt see X/Y at the party, did I miss you?" "No, we didn't come" and that's that.
DSD wants to go to a certain play centre for her birthday (Feb) and we would need to organise transport their and back (her friends parents don't drive and neither do we). All fine. Invites will be sent out first week of school, very clear that need to RSVP for a seat by Feb 10th (gives 2 weeks to let us know). We will book after we get the numbers. No rsvp, no party.
Sounds harsh, but we can't pay for those we don't know are coming.

Sometimes I have DS2 and DS3 in toe but I always ask the parents first and keep them separate from the party so they don't need to be included in stuff etc.

I think it's pretty rude to not show up to a party when you know the just is paying on a per child basis, like with something like a ski centre etc... But I don't think is invoice, that's a little extreme. I would be expecting some kind of apology though. I don't think that's unreasonable. In terms of people bringing along other kids/siblings, they should really call first to check/let the host know, else you may end up with blimmin hundreds of kids there :0
