What better way is there to catch up with your loved ones than to organise a tea and coffee morning while doing your bit to raise money for a worthy cause? Or you could always use the occasion as an opportunity to get to know your work colleagues better by inviting them round to yours to bond over tea and cake. After all, no tea and coffee morning is complete without cake, so make sure you’ve got plenty in supply – whether they be shop bought, or if you’re a budding Mary Berry, homemade with lots of love. You could always ask your guests to bring the cakes too for a little more variety and sell or auction then off to raise some extra cash.
Alternatively, you could bring the tea and coffee morning to a wider scope of people by organising a tea and coffee morning for the general public. Try contacting village halls or community centres as a venue, or if you want to make it a really big event how about contacting your nearest manor house? They’re often looking for new activities for the summer months.
Whatever you do there are a few things that you need to do to get you started. Here are our top tips:
- Set a time and place for your event with plenty of time to give guests lots of notice. Once you’ve decided on this, stick to it.
- Book a venue if needed.
- Advertise your event. If your tea and coffee morning is for your friends, just telling them will be enough, but if it’s a bigger event you can put up flyers, put an ad in the local paper or embrace social media by setting up a page for your tea and coffee morning.
- Enjoy yourself.
