IF YOU were to ask Pauline Glasser what she has planned for this Mother's Day, you probably wouldn't believe the response.
Pauline and her husband Colin will open the gates of their Lower Southgate property near Grafton on Sunday, May 12 and are inviting visitors in for a picnic and Devonshire tea.
The outlandish thing about the Glassers' Mother's Day tea party is their special guests; a flock of fluffy, long-necked alpacas.
"A lot of people haven't seen this view of the river from our home, much like a lot of people have never seen an alpaca up close before," Mrs Glasser said.
Pauline and Colin own a stud named Wahgungurry Alpacas, which is home to 50 alpacas. They said they saw the Mother's Day get-together as an opportunity to share their alpacas with the community.
"National Alpaca Week is at the same time as Mother's Day, so that's why we're having alpacas at the Mother's Day celebration," Mrs Glasser said.
"There'll be chequered table cloths and information about alpacas. We've even got colouring-in for the kids," she said.
Pauline is inviting mums and their families to bring a picnic rug to the farm and "picnic with the 'pacas."
"We're inviting you to come along and pat an alpaca. We've been busy halter-training, so there'll be baby alpacas for the kids to cuddle," she said.
