Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council Australia's most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.
The Biggest Morning Tea is a chance for people to get together and raise money for a great cause. 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Today, there are more than 1.1 million Australians who are either living with cancer or who have survived a disagnosis, but it is estimated 1 in 3 cancers in Australia are preventable. The official date for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is 25th May 2017 however if that doesn't suit you, you can hold it any date in May or June.
And if you are fabulous do decide to host a morning tea, the Cancer Council have created a huge range of DIY Printables for you to download and create, to add that special touch to your party. Check them out here.
If perhaps you have run out of time to boil the kettle for this event, don’t worry as High Teas are now a trendy, elegant and intrinsically feminine way to celebrate events such as baby showers, bridal showers and birthdays. While the art of doing it properly need not be stuffy or restrictive, it does require forethought and planning. Whether you’re a first-timer, or a seasoned morning tea pro, here are some pointers to help make being a host a breeze.
Decide on a Venue
Once you've decide who you're going to invite the next decision is to where to have it. The cosiest intermit setting is in your home or your garden, or you can also get your work colleagues involved and host it at work!
Decide on a Theme
You don't necessarily need to pick a theme, just a pretty tablecloth, tea cups and cupcakes. However there are three classic themes which will then help you choose your table settings and food; these are Vintage, Alice in Wonderland and British Morning Tea.
Make it Memorable and Get Creative
Have a little fun. Design some activities for the event. For example have your friends go head to head in a competitive bake off with blind tasting or have a lucky door prize for a cake at the end of the party.
Make sure the sugar and milk is set on the table ready to pour your guests a cuppa as they sit down. Try to provide a variety of tea - Earl Grey, peppermint, fruit, herbal and English Breakfast. A pot of coffee is also a good idea. Of course, if you're celebrating a special occasion, don't forget to pop open the bubbles!
