Morning Tea

Posted by MANDI at 8:19 PM
I held my morning tea for the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea today and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. As usual I forgot to take photos - I even had my camera on the bench to remind me. So, let's just pretend that there are about 15 ladies and a few little kids in the photo below. And that the table is groaning with lots of yummy treats. And that I took the photo during the actual event instead of this afternoon, after everyone had gone home and I'd tidied up!

I had about 15 people turn up which was just about perfect for my little house. They all fit in nicely but there wasn't a lot of space left over. Everyone bought a plate of yumminess to share and I had a range of teas and coffees, juices and hot chocolate-y drinks and am indebted to my lovely neighbour (aka Mrs-Across-the-road) for the extra cups and kettle.

I'd called upon my Tupperware lady and, somewhat cheekily, asked if she'd throw in a door prize for me. She very nicely offered up a fabulous prize as well as some little extras to give away. I sorted out some prizes for raffles and we were set to go.

We raised $70 for the Cancer Council and had a lovely time catching up over several cuppas and some very nice cakes, slices and cookies. Not a bad way to spend the morning. Not bad at all.

Good for you! Personally, I couldn't stand 15 people in my home so congratulations even more on your effort! *heehee*
