Mother’s Day Tea at Mount Clare Museum House



catch of the day fish (2)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).
