TREAT yourself By Joanne Spataro It's Mom's big day—and she deserves the best. Treat the special lady in your life to an escape at The Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge for Mother's Day Tea, served Friday, May 10 through Mother's Day on Sunday, May 13 between 1 and 4 p.m. Each party can expect to be pampered with a private table that's topped with a teapot and fresh-cut flowers. With seating fit for a queen, your duo will be nestled near the impressive main lobby of the resort or overlooking the pristine golf course. Naturally, hats and gloves are encouraged. You'll sample two towers of delicate sandwiches and sweets, warm quiches and savories curated using locally sourced ingredients. Choose from the crisp and refreshing classic cucumber sandwich, delicate cream puff, open tart, or a scone filled with English Double Devon Cream, lemon curd or raspberry jam. Top off your guest of honor's Ballantyne blend with a Champagne Rosebud or Pink Lady cocktail. By the time she's had a glass or two, she may tell you a story you've never heard before. And you might just learn you're a chip off the old block. Reserve your table at 704.248.4100. Cost is $45 for adults and $25 for children ages 5-12 (not including tax and gratuity).
