Kids party Rsvp

Should i assume those who havnt rsvp are not coming to the party and cater accordingly? Or should i cater for how many i invited incase those who didnt rsvp turn up any way..

I get in contact with the parents and check. It's not really fair to have to chase people up but it will save you pain in the long run (from either overpaying or under catering).

If it's a pre paid event, only cater for those who have RSVP'd, tough titties for anyone else. If it's a party I'm doing myself I just cater to the amount invited, I'm a little less fussy with who has RSVP'D and who hasn't. Leftovers are better than not enough food.
