Hold your own…Party Pyramid – Stick the kettle on and invite 10 friends for Tea at Three (or Wine at Nine – whatever takes your fancy!) Ask everyone to bring a pound or two as a donation / contribution for their tea and biscuits then while away the hours chatting with friends. But … before your guests leave, ask them to hold their own tea party to which they should invite 9 friends, guests to the next party will then be asked to invite 8 friends, and so on until you reach the top of the pyramid.
