I am planning a baby shower for my sister. I am looking in the Woburn, MA area for an inexpensive hall rental. I am basically just looking for a room to rent for about 40-50 people. All food is going to be made and brought. My sister is the first child to have a baby in my family so we want it to be special but unfortunately do not have a lot of money to spend on a location. upset Help!

Hi AEC886,

Congratulations to your, your sister and family!!! I do not have a specific venue in mind. As you know, you are in a high cost of living area, being only about 10 miles from Boston. Thus, facilities which have been designed to rent space for events such as major hotels need to make a profit off of their space and may tend to be expensive. Typically, they earn their income by selling food and (especially) beverages as part of their space rental plans.

Since you want to make your own food you might want to think about looking for places which would have suitable space that they would not be using on a Sunday afternoon, but do not depend upon that space rental/food and beverages as a primary source of income. These places might include religious institutions, civic organizations, independent schools, and colleges. Additionally, these places might include small hotels which do not have food service (except possibly a continental breakfast). If you have friends who live in a condominium or apartment complex with a meeting/social room (and/or club house) or have an office with a nice conference room add these places to your list.

Once you form your list, contact the various property owners/managers and ask them if they would be willing to help you out. Hopefully, you will find a nice space.

Locations are hard to come by when you are on a budget. Look into club houses or nicer neighborhoods have nice clubhouses that could be rent for small deposits and/or small charges.
