It IS a "new" thing, actually, to be so widespread. Yes, it's also a social class situation, as well. Traditionally, the baby shower has been for female friends. Why on earth a man would WANT to go, I have no idea. Children do NOT have to attend every function their parents do. And if they do, they should behave accordingly. Get a baby-sitter, folks.

Yes, we did think about that. There will be supervision. Plenty of adults and teenagers.

Ms. OP---I don't think you're going to get what you asked for. Didja really think it would be this complicated to get a straight answer, rather than etiquette lessons and what-not?

I would run with Madhatter's and don't look back! I hope all of your guests enjoy themselves to the fullest.

i don't know what side of town you are looking for, but there is a place off the access rd of I-10 --- it's right by the Rainbow place just as you are leaving San Antonio going towards Boerne...

It's called Mi Casa Tamales --- for the size of your party they would only have outdoor seating on a large wooden deck or down on the ground, off the deck --- they have EXCELLENT mexican food w/ and outdoor bar --- they also have live music on Friday and Saturday nights --- they also have a sports court where kids can play basketball and a teeny tiny little miniature golf set up (it's a work in progress) they also have a Rainbow playset of their own --- but the best part is that there is no fence or anything between the outdoor area of Mi Casa and the Rainbow place, so literally the kids would have like 30 or so playscapes to play on...alolng with enclosed trampolines...

when we went and talked to the Rainbow place about playscapes i asked about this and they said yes, that the kids from the restaraunt come over and play on their sets...seems like a huge liability issue waiting to happen, IMO, but it seems to work for both establishments...

anyway, we have gone a couple times with the kids on Friday night and it's a great place for both parents and kids to be entertained...did i mention the food is awesome!!! and pretty reasonable...

it gets kind of packed if you wait until 7pm or so --- we usually go around 545pm and have no problem getting a table...

good luck!!!

Always room for etiquette discussions these days. Plus, this is a PUBLIC FORUM, and all is fair game.

Personally I am not a fan of kids at baby & bridal showers, but I also think its a preference. If the guest of honor welcomes kids to her shower then its not a big deal, I just don't like going to ones that have kids running around. I have little ones and I know it can be hard to find someone you trust to watch your kids, but for me I just don't go then, I stay home with my kids and send a gift. I am considerate when the hosts specifies adults only.

Back to the OP, I just remembered that a friend of mine had hers at McArthur park in one of the pavillions and had finger foods from Absolutely Delicious. There were tons of kids and they all played on the playground while we played the games and did the gifts. The heat might be a problem though. Overall it was pretty fun, though nothing super fancy.

This makes perfect sense. Obviously any party should be planned according to what the honoree prefers.

Even when our kids were little, I left them at home so I could focus on the person being celebrated. That being said, it didn't happen often. "Back in the day" most baby and bridal showers did not include young children, unless the expectant mother brought any "expectant" siblings! We often included them so they would be honored too.....even with a few gifts for them so they wouldn't feel left out.

well im including kids, because i have kids and this will be their baby brother and i want them to be a part of it. actually the few baby showers i have gone to kids were always there. a friend of mine lives in apartments and we checked on her clubhouse but there only open while the office is open and on sat they close at 1200pm and are closed on sunday, so thats pretty out of the question, but great idea.
