Bridal Shower location ideas?

Kimberleyo Apr 6, 2013 06:30 PM

My daughter is getting married in September. Her fiance's mother and I are hosting a shower for about 40 women in early August. We are looking for a venue located between Seacoast NH/ME and Springfield MA....our guests will be coming primarily from those two locations as well as from greater Boston. Many of us are foodies so any suggestions? Thanks!

    Stonehedge Inn in Tynsboro?

      J's Restaurant at Nashoba Valley Winery is good, and a lovely spot. But they can only accommodate 22 people in their private room.

      Here is the link for the caterer that services The Fruitlands Museum: http://www.firesidecatering.com/

        Thanks for the replies. All the guests are coming from three general areas- Springfield MA, Seacoast NH, and greater Boston. Wenham is lovely but a bit too far for the Springfield group. Thinking brunch/lunch time. Anyone heard of/know anything about Fruitlands Museum? Have great feedback from a good friend on Longfellows Wayside Tavern.

          is this for a weekend lunch/brunch? or an evening affair?


          from springfiled to portsmouth is at least a 2-hour-drive each way, so is within a few miles of boston better?

            Wenham Tea House has lovely space and can be rented for events like bridal showers. I've eaten breakfast/brunch there many times but have also sampled their tea selections. Their food is top notch.

              I attended a shower at Wenham Tea House that was lovely -- but definitely a proper teahouse vibe -- not so much a foodie vibe. What about someplace in Portsmouth, like Moxy?
