Here are some ideas for “Mother’s Day” in Boston:
Take Our Food Tours!
We are running lots of fun guided food and chocolate tours during Mother’s Day weekend including a Harvard Square Chocolate Tour, Harvard Square Food Tour, Union Square Food Tour, Jamaica Plain Food Tour, and Davis Square Food Tour. Woohoo!
Memories of Mothers @ Mt. Auburn Cemetery
This is an interesting event that you could do in Harvard Square after our Food Tour which ends right beforehand. The Friends of Mt. Auburn Cemetery have put together a docent-led stroll around the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in historic Harvard Square to explore the symbols of motherhood found on monuments and visiting the graves of notable mothers who are buried there.
Alice’s Table Floral Arranging Classes
There’s a whole calendar of events around Mother’s Day from this really interesting company that teaches guests how to make gorgeous floral arrangements. I remember one of my favorite birthday parties growing up was a floral arranging class, and this looks really elegant and fun.
Sip & Script
Maybe calligraphy is more your jam? I’ve always wanted to learn calligraphy, and this could be just the place. I am eyeing the event on May 10th at Brookline Village’s new specialty cheese shop Curds & Co.
Albertine Press Crafting Event
This really cool stationery shop opened up in Inman Square, Cambridge and they are offering a Recycled Magazine Keepsake class that parents can do with their kids. I myself love doing mixed media art, so I thought this one sounded really fun. But of course our nearby Union Square Food Tour is happening at 2pm that day.
Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum
After our JP Food Tour which starts at 11am, join the 110th annual Lilac Sunday event in which one of the premier collections of lilacs in the world is on display and celebrated. 45-minute tours are also available but you can also wander through the lilacs on your own.
Whatever you do, we hope you enjoy yourself.
