A devoted day for Mothers was celebrated this year and its host was the beautiful Botanical Gardens of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
A staple of exotic flowers, historical trees, and aesthetic cactuses, the St. George Village Botanical Gardens of St. Croix is certainly a sight to see. And this year they hosted their very first Mothers Day event, catered by one of the most talented local chefs of the island Ralph Motta, and his catering company “MottaCuisine”.
So what does Botanical Gardens invite Mothers to enjoy, and what does a chef catered garden event on the Islands offer?
The answer is: “Everything and A cup of Tea”
1st: The event Venue is a milieu covered in sunlight, shade, and green foliage as far as the eye can see:
2nd: Once you enter your standing in “history”. The historical and high vaulted arches of the Botanical Garden building is a remnant and remainder of the 18th and 19th century sugar cane plantation. While the Botanical Garden grounds are even older, traced back to an Amerindian settlement this area was found to date back to 100 A.D. See the history of the Botanical Gardens.
3rd: After entering you will note that the tables are set, with elegant place settings of crimson and gold, accented by center pieces of garden picked flowers.
4th: Once you take your seat, from your round table you can view the vibrant and artistically decorated chef tables.
5th: The Chef and his Table of Hors d’oeuvres and Tea, set apart this particular event with class, flavor, and style by featuring innovative local island ingredient rich foods and beverages:
6th: Last but not least, the mind was relaxed as the Botanical Gardens Mothers Day Tea event featured soothing sounds from a talented local guitarist.
Therefore, this is a 5 Star event and certainly a tradition that you should treat your Mother to every year.
