Good places for a baby shower on a Saturday in June that can realistically be booked? Probably 15-20 people in attendance. Price is not too much of an issue. Not sure if a restaurant or something else would be appropriate. Was only told very recently so the date isn’t up for negotiation. I’ve never planned one before so all guidance welcomed! Boston, Cambridge, Somerville locations all fine.
