Engagement party ideas?

Hello - looking for suggestions on a classy engagement party that won't break the budget (which is about $1500). 20-30 guests, looking for drinks and heavy hor'dourves for 20 to 30 people, max. A private room would be nice. Can be anywhere in greater Boston area, but preferably within Boston or Cambridge. For example, the Wine Cellar at XV Beacon would be pretty perfect if it weren't $$$. Thanks!

  1. I went to a party at the Rustic Kitchen in Boston this weekend and the food was fantastic. The service however was a different situation. If you could work with the management to make sure that they appropriately staff your party (the party had the same number of attendees as yours) with one waiter and a bartender that floated between the main restaurant bar and the private room bar. If you go this route, the Italian Egg Rolls appetizers were amazing!
