    Default Tea & Coffee at 3 year old b'day party

    We are having DD's 3rd b'day party on Sunday in a park. We are taking our mini bbq to heat water for cocktail franks and I said to my hubby we will take tea and coffee too. He, who doesn't drink either, thinks that is a silly idea, too hard, etc etc. Mmm. The party is at 10-12 so I figured that is morning tea time..
    Am I correct in thinking people would like a cuppa with their cupcake or bday cake?

    Default Tea & Coffee at 3 year old b'day party

    It would be lovely to offer some but not essential. Iced tea in jugs is also refreshing in hot weather

    I don't think it is necesary. In fact, I don't think I have ever seen tea and coffee at a kiddies' party in the park. Keep it simple, I say. Cool drinks only

    Default Tea & Coffee at 3 year old b'day party

    As someone who drinks far too much coffee there's nothing quite like coffee & cake. I'd be surprised though if coffee/tea was provided in that situation. Personally I wouldn't worry about it.

    I agree, not necessary.

    I like a cup of tea but I would never expect it at a birthday party at a park. It's lovely to offer, but I don't think your guests would expect it.

    Since it's going to be in a park I don't think it's necessary. It is a nice gesture but maybe just sticking to cool drinks. Like a pp said iced tea and maybe iced coffee would be ok.

    I wouldn't bother tbh. I love a hot drink but in that setting I wouldn't expect it nor would I really want one, I'd be more inclined to go for a cool drink at a BBQ lunch.
