Puneet B. booked a bridal shower for 25 people
What an amazing space. Dana and Taylor made the whole viewing, booking, set up, take down, etc. process sooo easy. We threw a wildflower themed bridal shower with about 20 guests and the space was perfect. It could definitely fit lots more folks. The shed in the back was perfect for displaying food. Everything is so easily movable because most things are on wheels so you can really make the space fir what you need. The space is just soo well done. Taylor and Dana are so kind and accommodating. Our guests were enjoying the space so much so we added another hour and it was so easy. The shop is just adorable and our guests had a great time perusing before/after the event. Totally recommend!

I hosted my baby shower here and was so impressed with the space! I would highly recommend this urban garden for your event. One of the employees, Aaron, was incredibly helpful with setting up. He had everything cleaned and all additional rentals (such as tables, plates, glasses) all ready upon our arrival. He continued to help as needed throughout the event as was so pleasant to work with!
