INSPIRED by her recent visit to Harrods in London, Rebecca Pitson of Ripples on the Clarence has introduced a fun-filled morning tea party at her riverside cafe.

Held once a month, the tea party has become a popular weekend outing for many Maclean locals.

But the formality of the occasion isn't limited to the delicate white china and delicious morsels.

Each month, Ms Pitson creates a different theme for the tea party.

Yesterday, a happy crowd of 15 celebrated the festive season early when Ms Pitson revealed Christmas in July was the chosen theme.

"Everyone had a good time and we received good feedback for our theme this month," Ms Pitson said.

"We had a small Christmas tree set up with presents underneath and everyone who attended was given little chocolates to take home. It was a lovely day."

Yesterday's event was the fourth time Ripples on the Clarence had hosted the monthly tea party. Mrs Pitson said she hoped the event will continue to grow in popularity, adding she was pleased with current attendance numbers.

"It is a fun get-together for everyone to attend. A mixture of people have been coming each month and we change the themes to make each morning tea differ- ent from the last," she said.

Ms Pitson said the next morning tea will be held on September 2 and will have a Father's Day theme. She is inviting families to come along and spoil dad for a day.

"I think we'll get a few who will bring their dads," she said

The morning tea will be held between 10.30am and noon.
