How to Host the Perfect Coffee Morning With FriendsAugust 10, 2014
Hosting coffee mornings is something that many love to do. What could be better than relaxing with a great group of friends and indulging in gossip and a cup of coffee? There are great ways that you can ensure that your coffee morning goes without a hitch.
Think About Your Location
You can hold your coffee morning anywhere. If you want a small group of friends round, you can host it within the confines of your home. But, do not feel restricted to having your event within your house. There are many places that you can hold an awesome coffee morning.
Coffee mornings can be held at work. This is a great initiative for those who want to get to know their colleagues better. A fantastic working relationship is critical to your success at work. What is more, you can hold a coffee morning as a charitable event. Not only will you get to bond with your colleagues, you will also be raising money in the process.
Mother and toddler groups are great for coffee mornings. Once the toddlers are playing between themselves, take the opportunity to have a natter with the mums. You will be sure to have a great time. Why should the kids have all the fun?
Churches are perfect for getting people involved in your charitable endeavours. Hosting your coffee morning within the local church is a fabulous way of getting the community spirit alive. You can raise a lot of money for your chosen charity by hosting your coffee morning in your church.
Don’t Forget the Coffee
As commonsensical as this may sound, you need to make sure that you have enough supplies. You can buy coffee beans online or from the store. Have a varied selection of coffees to cater for all tastes. Remember to buy milk and sugar too. What is more, don’t forget a selection of mugs! Not everyone loves to drink from dainty cups. Get big mugs in, for those that are addicted to the bean. You may want to purchase tea and soft drinks, just in case some people are not a fan of coffee but also want to join the gathering.
We All Love Cake
Don’t forget to request that your guests bring cakes and treats to your coffee morning. Homemade cakes are delicious with a cup of coffee. However, your guests may not be Mary Berry, so do advise that they can also bring shop bought cakes if their baking is not up to scratch. You want people to feel included, so make sure that everyone can bring treats.
Planning is Critical
One months notice should be sufficient into ensuring that your coffee morning is a resounding success. If you are keeping your guest list small, a phone call will ensure that you can let your guests know that you are hosting your morning.
If your invitation extends to the community request that local businesses advertise your event. Avoid asking cafes to do so. They may take umbrage to you stealing their trade!
