Mothers Day Tea at the Joslin House

We have two planned seatings, one at noon and one at three, for a special Mothers Day to remember: high tea at the Joslin House with its beautiful gardens and patios.

A traditional afternoon tea party will be served indoors, with beautiful china table settings, charming tea sets, and delicious food. After tea, mothers and daughters may tour the beautiful gardens. You are welcome to photograph as many of your own memories as you like.

All guests will receive a special goody-bag, compliments of the City of Oaks Foundation and our sponsors.

Space is limited, so please RSVP so that we can plan appropriately. We will have a waiting list available once all reserved seats are taken. The hosting service has set a minimum age of 7 years old and up. Seats will be $35 per guest.

If this seating is sold out, please try our seating at the 3:00PM Seating.

Questions? Call 919-996-4773.


Are there minimum age requirements for the tea?

Yes. Because of the delicate china, the company providing the tea-service has set a minimum age of 7 years old to participate.

What are my parking options for the event?

Please park on W. Lake Drive, on the side of the street opposite of the homes. No parking is permitted in front of the neighbors' homes or in the drive way.

Where do I go?

Please come to the Joslin House via the drive way or up one of the garden paths leading from W. Lake Drive. If a guest has limited mobility they may drive up to the house and be dropped off at the door, but no parking is permitted in the drive way.

What should I wear?

Please dress nicely to maintain the high tea atmosphere of the event. You may wish to bring or wear comfortable shoes for walking the garden paths and trails. Some areas of the garden may not be accessible to those with limited mobility. Cameras are welcome. Depending upon the weather, you may wish to bring sunglasses or a hat while walking in the garden.

What's the refund policy?

As space is very limited refunds will be offered up to 7 days in advance of the event. After that deadline, we are not able to offer any refunds.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A list of all guests will be maintained by the hostess, but bringing your ticket will expedite your seating.
