BRIDAL AND
BABY SHOWERS

To love, laughter, and happily ever after! For intimate showers, receptions, and parties, choose the first floor, where several adjoining parlor rooms, a fireplace room, and a large caterer’s kitchen combine to make you feel like you’re hosting this important gathering right in your own home. For larger sit-down showers, brunches, and luncheons, choose our magnificent third-floor Grand Ballroom.

REHEARSAL DINNERS, WELCOME RECEPTIONS, BRUNCHES

Before and after the couple says “I Do”! Our ballroom offers an exquisite, timeless setting for your rehearsal dinner. You’ll have the house all to yourself, and afterwards, you can gather all your friends and family for a fun cocktail party to kick off the weekend weekend festivities. Perfect for post-wedding brunches, too!

BIRTHDAYS AND
ANNIVERSARIES

For all of life’s milestone moments! Our expansive Grand Ballroom offers a timeless setting for large family sit-down dinners or buffets. Or consider our intimate first floor for cocktail parties and welcome receptions. In warmer months, the broad front porch is the perfect place for guests to gather, sip cocktails and enjoy the summer breezes.

BAPTISMS, FIRST COMMUNIONS, BAR/BAT MITZVAHS & GRADUATIONS

Gather the family to celebrate their special day! The White House is a perfect place to gather before or after all the special ceremonies in your family’s life. Our guests have told us how much they appreciate having our spacious and elegant mansion all to themselves, so that family and friends can celebrate privately together, rather than in a public setting.

FAMILY REUNIONS AND
CLASS REUNIONS

Celebrate these milestones in style! Barrington’s White House makes the perfect venue for family or classmate reunions. With catering packages to fit every budget, you can use the whole house or just one floor – great for sit-down or buffet dinners, or simply a cocktail party to celebrate that milestone class reunion.

PRIVATE HOLIDAY PARTIES

Let us help you check off your holiday to-do list! De-stress by making our home into your home for the holidays! When you host your party at Barrington’s White House, it’s easy to check everything off your to-do list: no meal prep, decorating, or after-party cleanup! Elegantly decorated for the season.
