“Mothers hold their children’s hands for awhile, but their hearts forever”
Celebrate Mother’s Day, this Sunday, May 11th! Our Mother’s Day tea at Gramercy Mansion is completely sold out but it’s not too late to plan a special day for a special woman. Show your love and appreciation with time spent together. Here are a few ideas to fill her day with fun and celebrate…
Plan a day at one of Maryland’s wineries to sip and savor time with mom.
Visit Dejon Vineyards in Hydes, Maryland for Mother’s Day afternoon with live Motown music and more by musical duo Love Story and a tasty menu by The Harp Restaurant of Perry Hall available a la carte. Admission is $10 per person, ages 18 and over and free for guests 17 and under. Reservations recommended.
Plan a visit to Linganore Winecellars any time during May and treat mom to a tasting of a variety of cheeses and chocolates paired perfectly with Linganore wines. $10 per person; reservations recommended.

Tiptoe through the tulips at Ladew Gardens and take mom on a tour of the manor house, gardens and nature walk. Enjoy lunch in the Ladew cafe with a special treat for mom (while supplies last). Or purchase a family membership as a gift to enjoy the stunning gardens all season. House, garden and nature walk tickets are $13 per adult, $7 children 2 – 12.
Treat her to brunch at the always-fabulous Milton Inn, featuring a Spring fresh 3-course menu from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Mother’s Day. $42 per person, $21 for children 12 and under (entree and dessert only). Click here for details.
Feeling a little more casual? Step out to a family-friendly brunch at Miss Shirley’s Cafe, featured in USA Today’s 10 best places for Mother’s Day brunch! With homestyle favorites and deliciously decadent dishes as well (raspberry white chocolate waffles, anyone?), you can’t go wrong. Locations in the Inner Harbor, Roland Park and Annapolis.
Hope you’re now inspired to make a plan for mom and treat her to a terrific weekend!
