What is Mother’s Tea?
Mother’s Tea is a time for moms to hang out, enjoy something yummy to eat and drink and some grownup conversation. Moms only, nursing babies are always welcome.
But I’m the homeschooling Dad! What do I get?
Yes, I hear you, Greg Callozzo. Mother’s Tea inc. fully supports you getting a group of dads together to play cards or watch sports or even have tea amongst yourselves. No one is stopping you. In the past, dads have gotten together while Tea is happening and played football or frisbee or run just around outside with the kids.
When does this delightful tea thing happen?
The first or second Sunday of the month from 2-4. Usually teas are held in the host’s home, however if you would like to host a tea at your favorite coffee shop/ teahouse, that’s fine too.
What do I need to do to sign up for a Mother’s Tea?
You need to check the dates at the end of this email and pick a date and then contact me and/or the NUG list stating your desire for the month you’ve chosen. They get assigned on a first come basis, so if 2 people pick the same month, Tea goes to the person who contacted me first.
Do I have to bake like Yvonnie to host tea? Do I have to serve tea?
While no one will complain if you bake like Yvonnie, it’s not a prerequisite. You can even pick up some baked goods instead of baking yourself. Or heck, Justyna made us all sautéed veggies once and that was a great tea. You can serve coffee or lemonade or your home brewed beer if you like, though many of us really do like tea. If you are new to the group and are interested in hosting a tea, great! It’s probably a good idea to come to a few teas to find out if these ladies are folks you actually want to invite into your home.The following dates are available if you would like to host a Mother’s Tea.
I signed up for Tea hosting, but my families’ schedule turns out to be way overbooked that Sunday
If you know you can’t host early enough, post a not to the group and see if anyone would like to trade or fill in for you. Obviously, in the case of illness or other emergency, send an email to the list to cancel.
Looking forward to some great teas this year!
Here are the dates for tea: For the address and reminders, watch the FB page and/or yahoo group
