Before you get a regrettable “I Heart Mom” tat, honor your mother with a delightful garden party. Start the morning meandering through the newly reopened Lilac Collection while bands and dancers perform on the Daffodil Hill main stage. Make Mom a homemade watercolor card, then eat brunch picnic-style (just make advance reservations). Tons of activities are planned, all on the beautiful landscape, including putting on the green, croquet and guided walking tours through the gardens. There will even be professional photographers to snap pics for mom’s fridge.
