Wild Wood's: A Gathering Place opening in Hobart

Wild Wood's: A Gathering Place will open this spring in the former Like New Home Furnishings space in downtown Hobart.

The special events and party venue can accommodate up to 100 guests for events like bridal showers, baby showers, business functions, birthday parties, weddings, holiday get-togethers, retirement celebrations and funeral luncheons. It offers special discounts for military send-offs or welcome-home parties.

Wild Wood's: A Gathering Place offers a number of different customizable decor packages such as backdrops, garlands and balloon centerpieces from Balloon Boutique in downtown Valparaiso.

The venue also partners with a number of chefs, food trucks, and restaurants like Red Cup Cafe in downtown Chesterton to offer customizable menus for any budget or theme. Vendors can serve full brunch, lunch, or dinner menus, or lighter fare like charcuterie boards or finger sandwiches for tea party-themed showers.
