Mother’s Day Tea at Phelps-Hatheway

Print More

Welcome spring in all its glory with the annual Mother’s Day Tea on Sunday, May 13 at 2 p.m. at the Phelps-Hatheway House!

Each year, our costumed staff welcomes guests to our historic house for a splendid repast of tea sandwiches, scones with homemade lemon curd and jam, quiche, fresh fruit, a seasonal cake, and many pots of tea to lift the spirits and usher in the spring. A short tour of our museum will acquaint visitors with life in the late 18th century and the fashion of taking tea (or not!) during the Revolutionary War years. After the tour, join us in either the Summer House (weather permitting) or in the Pine Room for pleasant company and delicious fare. A walk through our formal and herb gardens or a stop in our gift shop may complete your visit. All of the proceeds from the Mother’s Day Tea directly benefit our museum. Discounted Connecticut Landmarks memberships (with a complimentary gift) make an elegant presentation for that beloved woman (or for yourself) in your life.

Reservations are required and a waitlist will be taken at 860-668-0055 or The cost for the tour and tea is $25 per person, $20 for CTLandmarks members and $10 for children.

The Phelps-Hatheway House and Garden, 55 South Main Street, Suffield, highlights the luxurious lifestyle enjoyed by five wealthy 18th-20th century Connecticut Valley families. From May to October, the historic museum, with its original French wallpaper and the formal gardens, offer a place of inspiration and respite for visitors of all ages.
