If you are a package or wine store, the ABCL requires that you must be closed to the public: every day between midnight and 8 am; Sundays before noon and after 9 pm; and Christmas Day. If you have an off-premises beer license, you may sell beer at any time except on Sundays from 3:00 am until 8:00 am. If you have an on-premises beer, wine or liquor license, you may not sell alcoholic beverages: between 4 am and 8 am on Mondays through Saturdays; and between 4 am until noon on Sundays. You must not allow any patron to consume alcoholic beverages more than 30 minutes after you are required to stop sales.

See this Link. I do not find any exceptions for private parties before noon.
