Rude guests at party

I recently had a naming ceremony for our baby and we invited about 20 adults and about 15 kids back to our house for a buffet dinner - it was an evening thing from about 6 to 8ish.

I was doing all the food myself and we had cleaned and organised the house. We have 3 young kids ourselves and I put our highchair upstairs out of the way to make more space in the kitchen/living area.
I put the kids food out first and then most of the kids went upstairs to playroom. My brother in law asked where the highchair was as his wife wanted it to feed their one year old. I said I had put it in playroom upstairs as I didn't want it in the way in living area. He asked could he bring it down and I clearly said no and suggested nicely that he either feed child on his lap as others had done with their small ones or he could feed child upstairs where most of the kids now are playing. He said fine.

Five minutes later I'm bringing out the adults food and there is our large highchair plonked in the centre of the living room. I said nothing as I was just too busy with the food and he said nothing either. Our house is not that big and with a big crowd space was already tight.

Also, we had the tv turned off, covered and tv table in such a way that 2 people could sit on it - he had turned on cbeebies loudly and pointed highchair towards it.

I know that its not a big deal but I thought he was very rude. I said nothing and won't ever say anything about it to them because its not worth the argument. But I'll have a little vent here....

Would you have said something to them??

Turning the tv on was not necessary and that would have annoyed me however I would have let them use the high chair.

But she said he could use it upstairs. He still brought it down. Wow.

It must be ace to behave like that in people's houses, as if the person who lives there is irrelevant.
