Every year at about this time, Filoli has a special celebration which is a perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day (May 7 to 10). This year the theme is “Voyages”. A floral interpretation of Voyages has been created by more than 80 designers. If you have not been to Filoli you will see the beautifully furnished and preserved historic House and famous formal Garden as well the amazing designer arrangements, decorative table settings, children’s bouquets, horticultural collections, garden art and vignettes, and educational exhibits. There are fairy gardens, perpendicular hanging gardens and wreaths and baskets located on the tennis court. The vintage greenhouses will be open for touring during this event. Filoli Garden Information Docents and UC Master Gardeners will be available daily to answer gardening questions from 12:00 – 3:00 PM. Filoli Nature Education and the Beekeepers’ Guild of San Mateo County will be here to educate children and adults alike. In addition, there will be live musical entertainment.
There are special events also. Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch has three seatings on Sunday and Special Teas on Friday and Saturday as well as an Opening Night Preview Party on Thursday evening. For more information or to purchase tickets go here.
