Filoli holds annual flower show on Mother's Day weekend

 

Filoli will present its 28th annual flower show on Mother's Day weekend, from Thursday, May 5, through Sunday, May 8, at the historic site in Woodside. The theme is "California Then and Now 1916-2016."

The weekend will include teas and champagne brunches. These events sell out quickly, with tickets now on sale.

Pre-ordered box lunches will be available on the tennis court for Saturday and Sunday and live music will be provided. The garden and gift shop, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the weekend, will be stocked with many gift items.

The traditional Mother's Day weekend marks Filoli's 100th birthday with vintage cars, flower arrangements, table setting, children's bouquets, horticultural collections and garden vignettes created by more than 100 designers. Docents will be available to answer gardening questions.

Visit filoli.org or call (650) 364-8300, ext. 508, to purchase tickets to the flower show events.
