This morning’s get-together was a success! I had 5 ladies that were able to attend. I was hoping for a couple more but between the blizzard/freezing temps and illnesses, some weren’t able to come.
Coffee-Mate provided me with a big kit of items to host the party. I received an apron, a heart-shaped silicone Wilton baking pan, cups and napkins, samples of Nestle instant coffee, samples of powder Coffee-Mate creamer, recipe cards, and a leather recipe binder. They also included coupons for FREE Coffee-Mate creamers.
I put together Valentine bags that included a couple of the instant coffee and creamer samples, a few of the blank Coffee-Mate stamped recipe cards, the coupon for FREE creamer, and a homemade Valentine’s Day decoration that I made.
The ladies all arrived around 9:30 AM and enjoyed coffee and/or tea. One of them having tea put the vanilla caramel creamer in her tea and said it was very good with tea. I tried the Cafe Latte flavor and really enjoyed that. It was my first sample of that flavor.
We enjoyed some conversation without the kids around (which is always a plus, since we’re all moms and are usually almost always with the kids!).
I enjoyed hosting, and I hope they all had a great time. I liked having it this close to Valentine’s Day, so I could theme it around that holiday. The homemade decoration I included in each goody bag was 2 candy canes that were baked for a few minutes and then pushed together to form a heart. I strung them on a piece of white ribbon, so they can be hung up for decoration in their houses.
I would love to host another coffee party…since I’m a HUGE fan of coffee and all the Coffee-Mate flavors!!
