my sister has offered to hostess a shower for me, but she is planning from afar, and having a hard time. any ideas on a boston area venue for a small-ish shower (20 ppl)? she is envisioning an afternoon tea, but we're open to anything.
The Taj has a tea... and the Park Plaza too.
Outside Boston in Concord there's the Colonial Inn for afternoon tea.
My sister and sister-in-law planned from out of state too. We went to Finale at the park plaza and had a very nice time. They block off a section for you and we had tea sandwichs, delish desserts and tea.
