As for the original topic, I think it was really rude for the boy to say he would go and then decide not to and not apologise or anything BUT there is no way I would invoice him over it. He just wouldn't be invited next time.

To the op I think it's very rude, if they didn't have the parents contact details ( which I find hard to believe as they had said yes to begin with) then they could have called the venue or apologised first thing when they saw him. Imagine if you were the kid excited that all your friends were coming then no one showed up. Or if you were the parent that saved and saved to give your child a special birthday and paid a lot only to have kids not show up

I think that both sides have embarrassed themselves and blown this way out of proportion.
What should have been a simple matter to sort out has now become a major drama that neither child will forget and those poor kids have become pawns in their parents' feud.

Bit rude not showing up but the invoice is even more rude totally unnecessary and a bit ridiculous.

I would be really cheesed off if someone didn't show up who had RSVP'd and didn't call to let me know. But I would never invoice them for it. If I got charged for it by the venue I'd probably mention it to the parents next time I saw them, something casual like "Hey its a shame little Billy didn't turn up on Saturday after we paid for his spot, he would have really enjoyed it!". But that would be it. I'm a bit passive aggressive like that though....always want to say a lot more than I actually do. Lol

There are some odd folk in this world! I feel really lucky after reading some posts that kids parties where I live are really lovely - party pies and pass the parcel and lots of happy kids running around. DS1 will be 7 in a month and he wants a pool party at home for all the boys in his class - his must haves are party pies, Doritos and a chocolate flavoured StarWars cake. I'm looking forward to it

I just read this again.
How on earth did they originally agree to go, if the invite didn't have the contact details (as they claim)??
