Mother’s Day tea benefits Central Park Gardens

Davis Central Park Gardens and Ciocolat have paired up again to host the fourth annual Mother’s Day Tea in the Garden on Sunday.

Guests can honor a favorite mother in their lives by treating her to a four-course high tea served among the flowers. The menu will include an assortment of scones, tea sandwiches, tea breads, and desserts, all topped off with fresh berries and Chantilly cream.

Garden volunteers will add special personal touches to the event, such as handmade corsages for moms and gifts of plants and seeds. Edible flowers donated by the Davis Farm to School Connection will garnish the plates.

Now in its fourth year, the event has worked its way into some local family traditions. Garden volunteer Gail Morriss and her daughter Karen make the corsages every year and offer them to guests. Volunteer Emily Griswold invites her family up from the Bay Area to enjoy the tea and then walk down the street to the Whole Earth Festival.

“My family is savoring the annual tradition of participating in this event, and I hope others will, too,” Griswold said. “This is a great opportunity to linger in the garden, appreciate the flowers, and provide vital support for this community asset.”

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.

Reservations are required, and seatings are available at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 each and are available at Ciocolat, Third and B streets.

The Central Park Gardens are in the park along B Street between Third and Fourth streets. For information, call Ciocolat at 530-753-3088 or visit http://www.centralparkgardens.org.
