Creative peeps take note: you have just days left to get your tea cosy and trivet entries in for the inaugural Dungog Tea Party to be held from August 20-25.

"Entries have been coming in from all over Australia and there is some amazing designs," said Erika Seck from the Tea Festival committee.

The entries can be dropped in to the Dungog Visitor Information Centre from now until Sunday, July 21.

"Don't forget the students' art competition too where you can design you own tea related artwork, drawing, painting or any creative item you can."

Templates can be downloaded from the Tea Party website: www.dungogtaparty.com.au where you can also find out more detail about the carious tea cosy and trivet competition categories.

Entries for the art competition close on August 9.

"We are also having an exhibit of unusual and quirky tea pots, with many locals displaying," said Erika.

The committee is also looking for volunteers to assist at the festival each day, even if only for a few hours.
