DD is having her party at a pizza buffet. We are paying for the invited kids food and some tokens. It says on the invite that the child's buffet is free. I want to make it clear by putting an insert into the invite. I have it worded as this.
Parents and siblings are welcome to stay and enjoy cake!!
If you wish to purchase a buffet lunch, prices are as follows:
• Adults 5.99
• Children (10 and under) 3.99
• Under 3 Free!
• Drinks additional
1) How tacky is this
2) is it worded okay.

I think you should do what is right for you financially. But, it may prevent some children from coming. I personally think it's wrong to bring siblings who are Not invited besides babies. I had a party for my Son recently & one Mom asked if she could bring her Sons brother so I said yes. It cost me an extra $14 for the child & another $4 for the treat bag. The Mom only gave a $10 gift. It should have been doubled. I provided food for the adults as well. Can't you just provide Pizzas & soda for the extra guests (Parents & siblings)?

"The Mom only gave a $10 gift. It should have been doubled."
Ilovemypaulie, since when is a kid's birthday gift about who bought what and how much it was? You should have told the mom that yes she can bring the brother but she would need to pay for the extra charge of another child.
Sorry, OP. Didn't mean to derail your post. Anyways, I think it sounds good.

This post is about etiquette. Maybe someone else will learn what is correct etiquette.
