Celebrate your mother and all of the great women in your life at the Mother’s Day Tea in the beautiful Rose Garden outside Hempstead House. This event offers a light afternoon snack of scones and finger sandwiches to tide you over from brunch to dinner. Live chamber music accompanies the festivities, and guests are welcome to enjoy the Preserve for the afternoon.
In case of rain, ticket holders have three options:
1. You can enjoy the tea at your private table inside Hempstead House, which is large enough for all guests to be safely socially distanced;
2. You can do curbside pickup at Hempstead House of boxed scones, finger sandwiches, etc. and enjoy the tea at home;
3. You can request a refund of your tickets so that you can make alternate plans.
Ticket holders, please email email@example.com with your preference at your earliest convenience so that we can be prepared on Sunday – rain or shine. The decision to move indoors will be made on Sunday morning.
For the perfect Mother’s Day gift, please consider a making a donation to the Iris Garden in honor of the special women in your life, and support the fourth season of the magnificent iris garden beside the pond.
Adults: $55 per person
Children ages 4 – 12: $20 per child
Children 3 and younger: free! If a chair is required, however, the Children’s ticket price applies.
