Low Key and Cozy - An Eventective User from Warwick, RI

We held a "celebration of life" memorial reception here. Much less depressing than at the funeral home. Plenty of space to display photos, flowers, and mementos. Cheerful little room looking out onto a garden area. Had access to a sink and water. The correct number of tables and chairs were supplied by staff and on hand for arrival.
