I now have black table clothes as well as white ones, they are all the standard rectangle shape.
I also have new table runners in different colours, you can mix and match these with the table cloths.

We went to Vanuatu in February 2016. I was able to donate $260.00 to a local school in Port Villa. It will be used to help parents that are struggling to pay their children's fees.
I have now added to my collection for hire white fitted chair covers and gold organza chair sashes.
They can be hired at an extra cost of:
$2.00 per chair cover
$1.00 per chair sash
I have compared my hire prices to a local party hire company and my prices are much lower.
They really do add a touch of elegance to every High Tea.
News from 2015
My husband & I went on a cruise to Vanuatu, I came back with such a yearning heart for the people of Vanuatu. They are a very poor country, their monthly average wage is approximately $380 per month.
They can only afford to send their children to primary school, they can't afford to send them to high school or higher. The average village home does not have electricity, Japan has donated 1 solar panel to each home in one village only...that doesn't do too much for them, but better than nothing.
I came away wanting to do something but just couldn't think of what I could do, so many ideas were going through my mind with regard to fundraising and how to do go about it.
I believe The Lord gave me an idea to start with and then later on expand.
When someone books a High Tea with me I will donate $1 for every person that attends that High Tea, I will do this until we go over again next year and give the money that I saved from my High Teas.
So if you would like to help to a very worthy cause and country please book a High Tea with me....a High Tea with a purpose OR if you would like to help out but can't think of a reason to have a High Tea then I am quite willing to accept donations to add to the collection.
