What Do I Do About Kids and Hors D'oeuvres During Cocktail Hour

It would be incredibly rude for the servers to tell the parents they cannot feed hors d’oueuvres to their children, and it would make your servers look bad.

The children are still guests.

Any guest who wants to eat hors d’ouevres should be able to do so.

Ask the venue how to work the billing. It would be extremely rude to deny serving the children and could create all sorts of resentment and upset. There is not a venue in the world that won’t make a few more puff pastries or meatballs or whatever in exchange for a few more dollars.

You absolutely need to accommodate the children during the hors d’oeuvres hour. However you arrrange the logistics, they will need to have access to something that they’ll be able to eat. For example, my passed or stationary hors d’oeuvres included fresh fruit, cheeses and crackers, bread for our crab dip, and mini pizza triangles in addition to more adult items such as the crab dip, scallops wrapped in bacon, and Beef Wellington.
