We know the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum as a celebration of the Gilded Age – that period between the Civil War and World War I, when U.S. population and industry boomed, a handful of men became very rich, and their homes reflected it. Important things were invented: The telephone. The light bulb. Coca-Cola.
And Mother’s Day, in 1914. So, for many years the museum’s Café des Beaux-Arts has hosted a very special Mother’s Day Tea for mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, and other lovelies. The menu includes finger sandwiches, scones, sweets and the Museum’s own Whitehall Special Blend™ tea.
You may reserve for either of two dates: Saturday, May 13 from 11:30-2:30, and Sunday, May 14, from noon-3 p.m. Tickets include prix fixe tea, museum admission, taxes, gratuity and a corsage for each mother.
