Wedding shower venue NW of Boston

I need a place for a bridal shower. 35-40 people. Concord, Bedford, Acton, Littleton, or Westford area. Any ideas?

      I agree but unfortunately I'm working with 7 younger wedding party ladies and two other moms. Decisions on specifics are not coming easily. I think the venue may drive things. What I do know is ..... May or June. Not too fancy. Lunch. Booze nice to have but not mandatory. American or maybe Italian to appeal to all attendees. Only place I know out there for parties is the Colonial Inn. Just need some places to share with the group and get them focused. Any help is appreciated:)

    2. I recently attended a baby shower at Aprile's European in Chelmsford, very nice.

        Aprile's Euro is great--I went to rehearsal dinner there a while back. The old mill it occupies is gorgeous.

        Cobblestone's in Lowell could also be nice. They have several private rooms set aside for functions (though I've never been to one there, so I don't know how well they handle them).

          Cobblestones does a good job with parties, the food is fine, parking is pretty rough.

      2. Try Nashoba winery in Bolton, should be gorgeous in the spring and you can combine wine tasting as an activity.

        1. I held an engagement party for my daughter and future son-in-law at Cobblestones last October. It was held in the French Room and it was a spectacular venue. Everyone was great to work with and the chef worked with me to create the menu that I wanted. The food was delicious.Parking is mostly on street...but it did not present a problem.

          1. .... looks like I have several good choices to forward on. Thanks so much.
