    I would bring my child if s/he was invited. I would be upset if they were seated downstairs, unless they were a teenager (at which point they would probably be upset about it). If I have a child who is younger than a teen I wouldn’t want to leave them alone with a sitter I didn’t know.

    But, generally there is a 20% decline rate, so if you invite 230 you will probably only have 184 attend.
