Wear your hat and get ready to bid!

Our first Tea Party held in 2018 was such a success, and enjoyed by all, that we decided to do it again!

Tim’s Gift Tea Party will serve 20 tables with 1 sponsor/hostess per table. Each table will seat 8 people. Sponsors will receive tables on a first come first serve basis. As of now over half of the tables are spoken for.

Would you like to attend our Tea Party?

Do you want to sponsor a table?

What does this mean?
To sponsor a table means you will be the hostess of your 8 person table. You will be responsible for getting all 8 guests (including yourself), decoratiing, and providing an 8 piece place setting for the table.

Decorating & Place Setting…
As the sponsor of the table you can decorate your table in any theme you desire, and provide an 8 piece place setting including:

  • plate (dinner or dessert)

  • teacup and saucer

  • cream and sugar bowl

  • silverware

  • napkins (paper or linen)

  • tablecloth (optional)

  • work with what you have, place settings don’t have to match

 Get Creative!  - Decorate with a theme! Provide your table centerpiece and any additional table décor. All colors, themes accepted!

What we provide…

  • round table

  • chairs

  • beige table cloth

  • tea

  • sweetener & cream

 Please let us know as soon as possible if you are in!

Remind your guests to mark the date on their calendars so they won’t miss out!  Have them come prepared to bid on the auction items.  Ladies are asked to wear a hat of their choice. 

Do you want to be a guest?

How can I attend if I don’t know a sponsor/host?
If you would like to attend we would love for you to join us. Not all hostesses are able to fill their table. Call us at 910-592-1126, and we will place you at a table with available seats.

Come prepared to bid and wear your hat!


Tickets are $10 each. Sponsors will receive 8 tickets and will be responsible for getting them to each guest and collecting the money.

If you do not know a host you may contact us to purchase a ticket for a seat at an unfilled table (if available).
