Cute Thank You Note

We loved this cute little thank you note, both for the lovely sentiments in it, as well as for the darling stationery.  Liz is our Banquet Manager and she always does a top-notch job for all of our couples, no matter the situation.  I thought you might enjoy seeing it as well.

BTW, the "DJ meltdown" rest-of-the-story is that their DJ called them at the last minute to say he was not coming, so we all jumped in to high gear to find them another DJ.  It was a case of "alls well that ends well."

Just as a note -- we recommend our wedding couples use The Music Company to hire entertainment because they have such a deep bench, and are so responsible -- we have never had anything like this happen in all the years we have recommended and used The Music Company -- at least in the 14 years that I have been at the Hawthorne Hotel, and this particular DJ certainly does not work for The Music Company, so never fear.

Let us know if we can help you have the wedding of your dreams.  Call us at 978-825-4358 or go to our website, and click on the links for weddings.

Yankees vs Red Sox = Wedding Theme

This month we are fortunate to be the "neutral territory" for a match-up that is one of the classic rivalries in sports -- Yankees vs Red Sox.  This time it was the theme for a wedding, and here are the darling photos to show you how they carried it out:

 A baseball fan from an early age.

 Such a darling cake-topper.

I hope you enjoy seeing another couple who made their dream come true at the Hawthorne Hotel.

Beautiful Wedding Set-Up in our Gorgeous Grand Ballroom

Today we were the marquee venue for the NECN Wedding Week finale.  Our gorgeous Grand Ballroom was highlighted by Event Planner Amy Kimball of Amy Kimball Events.

Here is a link to the video segment on NECN with lovely host, Jackie Bruno:  Beautiful Tabletop Video Hints create a hint of a certain British television show that is quite popular right now.  If you don't have your own castle, but want an historic and elegant setting, perhaps the Hawthorne Hotel Grand Ballroom is just what you need?

These beautiful, classically elegant centerpieces which were simply spectacular in our Grand Ballroom were designed and fabricated by Artistic Blossoms Floral Design Studio in Boston.  Their website is: Artistic Blossoms Website

Here is a photo of Amy and her assistant, Lisa, as they were putting the finishing touches on the tabletop.  You can reach Amy at Amy's Website or at 617-851-2166.  

She mixed lace and satin for the tablecloth, and used gold and silver as the metals for an eclectic, elegant look.

I hope you enjoy seeing this beautifully elegant setting in our gorgeous Grand Ballroom.
