The mums in Melissa Ibbett’s coffee group enjoy meeting regularly to share the fun of parenting. They decided to use one such meeting to hold a Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
Eight women gathered in Melissa’s home with their eight 6-month-old babies. “There was nothing hard about it. It was a good few hours with a few laughs,” says Melissa. “Each person brought a plate of pink food. We played easy games like ‘guess the amount of jellybeans’ where people had to put in a gold coin to play. We decided to donate $10 each, too,” she says.
What was the best thing about the event? “Being around friends, eating delicious food and dressing the babies up,” says Melissa. “It was also rewarding to donate to a worthy cause.”
Melissa’s Top Tip:
Don’t be afraid to ask for help - as a host you don’t need to do it all. Everyone bought a plate which meant one person wasn’t in charge of all the food. Also, it doesn’t have to be a big extravaganza of an event. There was only a small group of us but we still had a blast!
