If it were just the parents involved then I would suggest not paying for them – but in this case the kids would suffer.

Is there an option of adding more kids on the day of the party? I used to work for Chuck E Cheese, and we’d have parents book for 20 kids and only have 12 show up, or book for 10 and have 15.  Whatever happened, we just counted the kids there on the day of the party and that’s all we charged for – not what was booked.

@Firie: Is it possible for you to call those that haven’t responded for their answer? I know it isn’t fun for you to place those calls, but perhaps you’ll get some apologies and a clearer count. I might pay for one wild card to show up or just pay for those that have said “yes” because someone might bail on you at the last minute! Beyond that I wouldn’t pay for those that haven’t responded. While it may not be fun for kids to be turned away, that is not your concern but that of the parents who just showed up expecting you to bend. Otherwise, the kids are being taught that the world will bend to them when simple courtesies are ignored, and that isn’t helping anyone. Good luck with the party!
