Birthday Party

My sister is having a casual birthday party cookout for my nephew at her house. I asked her if I could bring my sister-in-law's 2 kids to the party, they are going to be coming to stay from out of town. My sister said this was fine. When I told my sister-in-law we could take the kids for the weekend she said the whole family would come visit and come to the party. This would add to more adults and a baby. What should I do? should I talk to my sister or my sister-in-law? What should I say?

Birthday Invitations
by: Ms P Etiquette

Tell your sister-in-law that you will check with your sister before you can confirm their attendance. Explain that it is a child's party which is the reason you can take the kids. Her presumption of an invitation is poor manners but you do not have to participate with her. Please let your sister know that you are fine if she feels the addition of more adults and a baby is overloading her affair. Then you go to the party with the two children and enjoy yourself.
