This is a bit of a throw back from the fall but I thought I would share: I’ve always loved throwing parties but this one was my favourite. I spent a lot of time and effort on this day but perhaps it was because it was for my sister and I wanted everything perfect. The shower took place at in the home we grew up in, my parents house. I spend months researching catering companies and scrolling through Pinterest, trying to come up with ideas.
My sister wanted something classy without “cheesy”bridal shower games and I figured a wine and cheese tasting style party would be perfect. I purchased from random picture frames and headed to the local craft store and put together a few signs for each station. I purchased a few wine makers to prevent everyone forgetting which glass was there. (it also makes for less glasses at clean up)
I decided to go with Cavern in Edmonton, AB for the caterers. They deliver all the food and pick up the dishes the next day so its low fuss. I made some appetizers myself that were quick, easy, and tasty.
As far as games went: I set up a station for everyone to write a date idea for the happy couple. I also did “How well do you know the Bride,” and “What’s in your purse games.” Both games were simple and tasteful and the winners received a bottle of wine.
I made everything “help yourself,” with a coffee station and assorted bottles of wine which, made less running around for me and I could sit back and relax a little more.
Overall I think the night was a huge hit! At least I thought so anyways!
