Biggest Morning Tea

Surprise, I am here. :-)  School holidays for two weeks so I have a little more time in the mornings and it raining so have to find inside things to do. :-)  I so miss catching up with everyone and one day I will work out a new routine so that I can fit everything in. Till then I will slowly share the couple of crafty things I have done.  

Sunday, 21st June my daughter and I held a Biggest Morning Tea to raise funds for cancer research.  I felt very proud when my daughter who lives down in Brisbane while doing uni rang one day and asked if I was doing the Morning Tea this year.  I said no as she wasn't here to help me.  She said she would like to do one when she visited as she likes to be involved at least one fundraising event a year.  :-)

So blue, yellow and white was the theme.  I used a spray water bottle with blue and yellow food colouring to spray paper doilies.

Moved them all on to a towel to dry.

The tables before everyone arrived.

Aren't the doilies so effective….such a cheap and easy decoration.  My friend kindly made all the wonderful pinwheel flowers on each of the tables.  My daughter decorated jars with washi tape and twine….so nice to put the tape and twine to good use.

Next year we may be flash and have real table cloths. :-)  Plastic are good though as they went straight in the bin when clearing up.

Had some cards for sale too.

The food was even in theme.  My wonderful daughter spent all week baking while I was working. I made some carrot cakes and the friend that did the pinwheel flowers also made an apple slice and hummingbird muffins….so yum.  The remainder my daughter made.

All the food, coffee and tea.

Tables are full.

We had set a goal of raising $300 and we raised $343 so it was a very successful day.

Thanks for visiting….have a terrific day.
