Tis the Season of Bridal Showers - Take 1

Summer is in full swing and I am lucky enough to have attended a number of bridal showers already this summer. Two of these were for my dear friends who are sisters to boot, and I had so much fun I decided I would post some pics from these happy events.

Shower One

The first bridal shower was for the younger sister whom I lived with for a fabulous period of time. The bridal shower was held at a restaurant called The Fainting Goat.

I was so excited to get the chance to go to this restaurant as I had never been there before!!

Prior to this shower, I had never attended a shower that was not at a house/hall, so this was a double treat. Oh yeah, and getting to celebrate with the happy bride-to-be was amazing as well!

The Maid of Honour rented the restaurant so that we had it all to ourselves. Except for the bartender.

The restaurant decor went well with the bright, Hawaiian-themed decorations of the shower.

The restaurant supplied the bridal shower guests with a table full of delicious afternoon snacks.

Fresh fruit, veggies and dip.....

Garlic hummus with homemade pitas and bruschetta.

And chocolate covered strawberries.

All the guests sipped on Sangria which was delicious. A perfect sunny afternoon drink.

My favourite snack (other than the Sangria of course...can I consider Sangria a 'snack?) were the tiny little cake squares with delicate little edible flowers. The napkins even matched the cakes!

We played fun shower games, and for a person who doesn't care for most traditional shower games (insert toilet paper bridal gown game here) that is a huge compliment! The Maid of Honour did a great job of planning!!! Here is a pic of the beautiful bride.

We had such a wonderful afternoon, and I definately want to go back to The Fainting Goat for a lunch or supper meal to try out the rest of their menu.

The lovely bride and groom got married two weeks ago. Congrats to the beautiful couple!



  1. Looks like a lot of fun! I LOVE the Fainting Goat! It's one of Regina's best restaurants, in my opinion!

  2. Awwwwwe - what an awesome shower!!!! The Fainting Goat is a GREAT place. You should check it out on a Tuesday evening. They have games night, and then a dance party. It is awesome.

    I want to see wedding pictures!!!!!!
