Get together with family, friends or colleagues and turn your afternoon into something a bit special. Big and bustling in a community hall or park, small and intimate in your home or the office, or even extreme on the summit of a mountain, we're sure you'll make it an afternoon tea to remember.
Decide on a theme. For example, if you held a Mad Hatters themed tea party you could serve tea and coffee in mismatching tea cups, mushroom chocolates or even cupcakes decorated with playing cards! You could also request that everyone wears fancy dress to raise a little extra cash and have some fun.
Set a date, time and venue: Even though tea breaks are traditionally in the afternoon, there’s nothing to stop you holding one in the morning or even in the evening with a few cocktails as well. Send an email or invitations out at least a week in advance so you can get a good idea of numbers.
Don’t go it alone. Not much of a baker but make a mean cup of tea? Get as many people as you need to help out and allocate tasks- one person can bake, another could make sandwiches and someone else could do the serving, that way everyone gets to take some time out.
Decide on how you’ll raise the money - You could either charge people a set amount for a ticket or people could pay for what they have.
Sit down, relax, catch up with friends and enjoy your break!
