The Boylston Room has 2 different indoor event spaces and an outdoor patio. The smaller of the 2 rooms was the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot put on by the Fox and Lantern. She used our mahogany chiavari chairs for the ceremony. The large mill windows let natural light brighten up the space!

The Fox and Lantern created a mock cocktail hour out on the patio. We supplied cocktail tables, chiavari bar stools and our plank bar to create a quaint cocktail reception. The plum linens matched the brick of the old mill building beautifully.

The event started with a cocktail hour under a frame tent that we installed in the bus terminals. From there, guests walked a red carpet through our ropes and stanchions into the newly renovated station.

Your halls are decked and the tree is trimmed but have you thought about your dining table?

Use candy canes to prop up name tags. They’ll double as a party favor!
