I have never arranged this type of event before, anyone have any suggestions?
My daughter's troop needs to have a fundraiser/ social activity and they want to have a tea party. Our troop holds its meetings at our church and gets free meeting space. As a thank you to the church we try to do a church wide activity to show our appreciation and make the troop visible to potential members.
So far this is what the troop leader and I have decided. We charge ten dollars per pair and the party lasts two hours. We serve tea, cookies, and food the troop moms make and donate. I want to have some type of craft to do at the party. I was thinking a foam frame or frig/ dry erase memo board from Oriental Trading company. Also the scouts would make up "flower Pens" at a prior meeting to decorate the tables and for the moms to take home. I would get disposable table cloths from costco. Mostly we will use the church coffee maker to make the hot water and I will bring in about 10 tea pots to put on each table. I have a ton of teas to choose from. I think brewing tea in the pot with bags is easiest so we wont worry about the mess of wet loose tea. Any suggestions on activities or how to make this fun?
