How to make your
BIGGEST morning tea a success

Your morning tea should be as fun and stress-free for you as it is for your guests, so here are some top tips to help you plan:

Start with a pinch of preparation...

First, decide what kind of morning tea you’d like to host. Will it be with friends and family, your colleagues or your community group? Will it be a fancy affair or a low-key catch up over a cuppa? Online via video call or socially distanced in person? Whatever you decide, it’s important to get your invites out in plenty of time. We all know how busy people can get! To make it easy, we’ve got some great invitations for you to use – ready to print or send via email!

Add a dash of inspiration...

It’s your chance to host your tea your way, so think up some fun activities or dream up a sweet theme! You’ll find plenty of fun games and ideas online – suitable for both an in-person morning tea or a virtual one. People love having a good time for a great cause, so do things that everyone can get involved in.

Stir in a big dollop of delicious...

Whether it’s a full-on royal luncheon or a simple tray of scones, no morning tea is complete without tasty treats. Stuck for what to serve? You’ll find delicious tried and true contenders on our recipes page. To make things easy, ask each guest bring their favourite morning tea treat! And a good way to keep things COVID-safe is to serve items individually wrapped or create separate boxes of treats for your guests rather than share plates.

A splash of decoration...

Nothing says ‘FUN’ like decorations. Use the posters and bunting from your host kit or online, pop on a nice tablecloth, and get people to dress up! Check out our special party pack if you’re keen to go all out. You could even play some fun music to set the scene. If you’re hosting virtually, put up some bunting on the wall behind you or download our fun Zoom background!

Spread the word!

No matter how you’re hosting, make sure to share your fundraising page with friends and family via social media, asking everyone for donations - even if they’re unable to attend. Your morning tea is doing something incredible to help people impacted by cancer, so be proud and shout it from the rooftops! You might even inspire someone else to have their own morning tea, meaning you’ll be making an even bigger impact.
