Peterson Party Center was founded in 1877. We started out renting chairs to funeral homes and over the last 25 years have grown into one of the most extensive event rental companies in New England. Along with building our inventory of rental equipment, we have earned a reputation for outstanding customer service.

We have established ourselves with caterers, event planners, corporations, production companies and charities as a comprehensive and trusted source for tents and special event equipment. We offer an inventory of classic and comtemporary products, to which we are adding on a regular basis. We particularly pride ourselves in our tent inventory, which is the widest and most innovative in the Northeast, from which you can choose to create the ideal function place, complete with staging, dance floor and lighting. We are a one stop solution to your event needs of any size: no event is too big or too small.

Our website will allow you to select the perfect items for your event. In addition, our experienced staff is on hand to assist you with all stages of your event; from the initial concept and planning through budget development, site inspections, delivery and installation, event supervision and removal of all equipment.

Each and every event is as important to us as it is to our customers. Read less

We rented a tent and tables from Peterson Party Center for our wedding. The process was very straightforward and easy. They were very professional and we would not hesitate to use their rental services again.

Peterson is the place to go for party rentals in the Boston area. Their delivery charge was totally reasonable, and they dropped off and picked up right on schedule. Dealing with them was totally easy, and based on their reputation we knew that they would not cause any problems. Highly recommended!

My wedding was in my parents back yard so we had to rent EVERYTHING for the ceremony and reception-tent,tables,chairs, dance floor, dishes/glasses, a grill, etc, etc. Everyone at Peterson was very friendly and helpful from the planning phases right through the day itself. They were very flexible in terms of changing the order and accommodating our needs.
The delivery and set up of the tent was able to be done a few days before the wedding so that we would have time to decorate, etc. The rest of the things were delivered early the day before. When we had a problem with one of the fans we rented not working, they came back very quickly with a replacement.
I would highly recommend Peterson for any of your party/wedding rental needs!

I didn't realize how expensive tents were to rent, but the people at Peterson's really helped me make it as affordable as possible. They worked with me to figure out what I'd need and offered suggestions to help me cut corners, including suggesting a shared tent with the wedding the previous day at my location. It was a great addition, between the relentless sun of a 96 degree day and evening rain storm.

So I had heard pretty good reviews about this company so we decided to use them when renting the chairs for our wedding ceremony. We paid a price per chair, plus additional fees for labor, (setup and breakdown), delivery with a less than 3 hour window, pickup with a less than 3 hours window, as well as a delivery charge. After all the add-ons the price per chair went up significantly. Having said that, fees are fees. My issue was with the fact that they requested we provide a map or diagram of how we wanted the chairs set up. Makes total sense!! We spent the time to draw out a DETAILED diagram with very specific clear directions as to how to setup the chairs and emailed it to the office. About ten minutes before they were to be delivered I received a call from the guys who were at the park to setup the chairs asking if we wanted it done any particular way? REALLY? After I reminded them that we had already submitted a drawing they said the office must have screwed up. Best part is that they then asked me to bring another to them. At this point I am already well into getting ready, so I convinced them to please come and get it from me. Long story short, the chairs made it, they were setup (though still not exactly to the diagram provided), but the service left something to be desired. I get that accidents happen and it wasn't a huge deal cause they came to get it from me, but an apology would have been nice.

We rented rechargeable tea lights for our wedding reception, because open flames were not permitted at our venue without a fire marshal present.

Peterson were recommended by a family member and made the process very easy. We ordered the tea lights, but because our venue was already ordering a dance floor and other items, everything was arranged to be delivered together, saving us on some delivery charges. That took a burden off of us, and we didn't have to worry about returning them when the event was over. Communication with the rental company also was easy.

Petersons was great. Everything was delivered on time and clean. Before the wedding I was able to call or email to make any changes that were needed because of the final count. The delivery crew was early for the pickup, and not once did they rush us.

We used Peterson's for our wedding rentals (chairs, dinnerware, etc.). I worked with Monica Rodriguez who was very responsive and flexible to any and all changes. The delivery guys were nice and professional, a ray of sunshine on what started unfortunately as a wedding rainy day.

Everything was there and accounted for and the rentals were quality. The prices were competitive with other rental companies, though I think rentals in general are too expensive. I would use Peterson's in a heartbeat!

We are very happy to have chosen Peterson Party Center for our September wedding, as the decision to use them turned out to be one of the best that we made and we would strongly encourage anyone to do the same for any event that you might be planning. The quality and the level of service from the friendly, highly professional and hard working staff prior to, during and following our event beyond our expectations.

It was a daunting experience to have to choose a tent company from the many companies available, however after meeting with Paul we easily knew we were with the right company. His first visit during the winter to explain the wide variety of options available was tremendously helpful and allowed us to plan how the venue would need to look, months in advance.

We knew that Peterson's had a strong reputation for quality around Boston having provided flooring and tents for the Boston Red Sox to name but one client and though we were worried about the potential cost of the tent for our event, Paul worked with us to ensure that we were comfortable. One example is that we were unsure as to whether flooring would be required and unlike other companies who visited the site, he was very honest when he said that we would not need it based upon the ground that we were intending to use.

They were also able to coordinate very smoothly with the catering company that we had selected, Tables of Content, and to ensure that all necessary tables, chairs and equipment was present. We did not have to be involved in this organization and between these two vendors the organization was impeccable.

We may not have been exactly "easy" guests to work with, as we had invited guests from the UK and across the US and we wanted to offer them all an experience that would be unforgettable, and the large tent for 140 guests (40 x 80) with clear walls allowed us to enjoy the wonderful weather and to show the glorious scenery.

Peterson Party Center is an established vendor which factored into our search when we were looking around Boston for a company to use for our wedding and we must add ourselves to their list of admirers. Peterson's made our wedding the talk of the town, the awe of our friends and neighbors, and the celebration of our lifetimes. Thank you Petersons for surpassing our expectations and making our wedding an incredible and unforgettable experience for us and our guests!

They were great. Their website is really easy to use and they had a lot of choices. The prices compared favorably with Taylor Rental and the quality of their stuff was a lot better. We went through their website and picked out what we wanted, and it showed up when they promised and was gone after the wedding. I didn't have to think about anything rental-related on the wedding day and everything looked nice. I couldn't have asked for more.

We used PPC for our tent rental, dance floor, and lights. The lighting options were not very flexible. We ended up with string lights that were not very visible during the reception.

We had to reserve a ceremony tent in case of rain, and when it turned out the weather would be nice, I left a voicemail asking to cancel the ceremony tent. When we arrived at our venue the next day, the tent had been put up anyway. Luckily, PPC returned and took it down after the wedding planner called them. There were a few times when I had to have the wedding planner contact PPC for me because of slow response time or difficulty getting what I had asked for.

We used Peterson's for a tent, and dance floor for our outdoor wedding. Everything was great on the wedding day; the tent was exactly as I envisioned it, as was the dance floor. My only problem was initially getting in touch with someone about renting the tent, they were always busy, and didn't return my calls at first, but I was persistent and eventually got a hold of somebody. I ended up change my order twice, and they were very understanding and flexible. I would definitely recommend them!
