Host a Positivi-Tea and Ice Cream Social

Host a Positivi-Tea and Ice Cream Social

We can never be filled too full with words of encouragement and affirmations from those near and dear to us. Invite your own posse over for an afternoon of affirmation — and maybe share the love with some new friends, too — by hosting a Positivi-Tea & Ice Cream Social.

Gathering friends together for hot tea, ice cream, and positive vibes, you can beat the season’s chill and fill up, physically and emotionally. Warm hugs, friendly smiles, and uplifting conversation will help soothe any lingering winter blues, and reenergize your peeps to get out there and share kindness and positivity with others.

Décor

Counting your blessings is cool. With this in mind, go on a treasure hunt around your house to find special things with which to decorate. You might be surprised with what you find to mix and match, and you’ll create a display that’s uniquely you. The most important design element is providing a space in which your guests will feel nurtured and nourished.

Table Topics

I truly believe that the right words come to us just as we need them. This is why I like to use place cards for affirmations or uplifting quotes instead of guests’ names. Take this opportunity to scatter some words of encouragement across your table, or use your place card holders to decorate each setting. Allow your guests to sit where they will, and the words they need at that moment will be there for them.

As an interactive game, you might consider asking each of your guests to say something about how they felt receiving their note of affirmation. For some, a reminder that they are worthy, loved, and appreciated comes too infrequently. This get-together is just the right place for offering and receiving kind words and support.

Tea & (Ice) Cream

Now, you might say, an ice cream social — in winter? Sure! A hot cup of tea will perfectly balance a sweet bowl of ice cream. In fact, Plum Deluxe has the perfect selection for this occasion. It’s the Gratitude Blend, a succulent strawberry Earl Grey representing gratitude, appreciation, and kindness.

While you’re spending quality time exchanging kind words with your guests, your tastebuds will really appreciate a simple-but-decadent Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae. Buy or bake brownies ahead of time, and then assemble your sundaes just before your guests arrive.

TIP! You can create a delicious homemade Hot Fudge Sauce, lightning fast, with two simple ingredients: sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips.

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk

Use immediately.

Refrigerate remainder in an airtight container. To use again, heat and stir until smooth.

Make your next gathering a Positivi-Tea & Ice Cream Social — it’s the perfect way to serve sweetness to your friends and warm their hearts and yours during the winter months, or any time.
