Spring Fete at Nicholas House on June 6

May 21, 2013

The Nichols House Museum, located on historic Beacon Hill, will host its popular celebration, the Spring Fête, on Thursday, June 6, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the elegant setting of The Boston Athenaeum.

This popular party has become a rite of spring for Beacon Hill, where friends and neighbors welcome the season, while enjoying great conversation, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and creative cocktails.

Guests are invited to bid on an exquisite selection of silent auction items, this year focusing on one-of-a-kind objects. Unique hand-made porcelain, a stunning side table topped in cherry wood and decorated with native birch, a large format photograph, and exquisite designer jewelry are among the objects to be auctioned. Ticket price is $125 per person. Contact the Nichols House Museum at 617-227-6993, info@nicholshousemuseum.org, or visit www.nicholshousemuseum.org to purchase tickets or for more information

Proceeds from the gala benefit the museum’s preservation efforts. This year, the funds will be used to commission hand-embroidered reproductions of antique silk and linen bed hangings in the one of the museum’s bedrooms. This project will enhance visitor experience while preserving the material legacy left by Rose Standish Nichols, founder of the museum.
