Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Mother’s Day plans. Sure, it’s still a few weeks away, but don’t let the holiday sneak up and catch you unawares with nary a brunch reservation in sight. If your same old spots are feeling a little worn out this year, maybe it’s time to take Mother’s Day back even further than your own family traditions. In fact, maybe you should take it all the way back to 1760, when the Mount Clare House was built. This gorgeous example of colonial architecture was the state’s first museum house, and they host a delightful array of events for families and curious history-oriented visitors each month. And for Mother’s Day this year, they’ll be hosting an afternoon tea fit for a queen (or mom). The Mother’s Day event includes admission to the museum house and a tour. Afterward, enjoy traditional 3:00 p.m. tea, accompanied by finger sandwiches and baked goods at the Mount Clare Stable. It should be noted that their Mother’s Day event is actually held on Saturday, May 9th, rather than on Sunday (which is actually Mother’s Day). But that just means all the more time for celebrating mom. And we know she’ll like that.
The Mount Clare Museum House is located at 1500 Washington Blvd in Baltimore. Their Mother’s Day Tea will be held on Saturday, May 9th at 2pm. Reservations are required. For more information, or to RSVP, visit www.mountclare.org.
