Planning Your Next Event at Blumen Gardens

The urban ambience of Blumen Gardens’ event rental space is a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Housed inside a renovated factory, the Garden Room’s tall ceilings and exposed brick walls are a rustic, yet modern backdrop. Our staff delights in decorating the hall with a seasonal mix of blooming perennials, house plants, and architectural accents – creating an inviting and professional space that can accommodate up to 250 people.

While many of our patrons use our room for weddings and receptions (see more at our Weddings page), we also host a variety of gatherings from small parties to large business meetings, including:

Professional and Family Events

Business Meetings, Fundraisers & Community Events
Family Celebrations including Wedding & Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners and Baby Showers

Garden Clubs

We have become a top destination for local AND distant garden clubs.
In fact, some of our garden clubs visit us from as far away as Wisconsin and Michigan. What we hear from those participants is that we are well worth the trip. Any plant lover will enjoy the historic scenery and creative displays within our Gift and Garden shop. Our event room is the perfect space to conduct your group’s meeting, enjoy a box lunch, and tune in to hear an inspiring and educational garden talk by one our knowledgeable speakers.  View Garden Group Letter – PDF
