Mother's Day Tea coming up Sunday, May 8th!

Mother's Day Tea coming up Sunday, May 8th!

Garden volunteer Gail Morriss and her daughter Karen made corsages at last year’s Mother’s Day Tea in the Garden. Handmade corsages will be a special touch at the event again this year.

Mother's Day is coming up fast - make your reservations soon!  Davis Central Park Gardens and Ciocolat have paired up again to host the second annual Mother’s Day Tea in the Garden on Sunday, May 8th.  Honor a favorite mother in your life by treating her to a decadent four-course high tea served among the flowers.  Garden volunteers have added special personal touches to the event, such as handmade corsages for moms and gift plants and seeds.

The heavy winter rains and cool spring weather have brought on a bounty of blooms in the garden, including the spectacular 6-foot-tall tower of jewels, fragrant roses, and hummingbird-attracting sages.  This is a beautiful time to be out enjoying the garden, and participating in this event provides vital support for our ongoing maintenance.

Proceeds from the event will provide funding for plants, gardening supplies, and public education programs for Central Park Gardens.  The flowers, herbs, and other plants in the garden are tended by a group of devoted community volunteers and Yolo County Master Gardeners who have renovated the garden from the ground up.

The high tea menu will include cranberry and white chocolate scones; an assortment of tea sandwiches, muffins, and desserts; and fresh berries with Chantilly cream.

Reservations are required, and seatings are available for 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.  Tickets are $45 each and are available at Ciocolat, Third and B Streets.  For more information and to make your reservations, call Ciocolat at (530) 753-3088.
