This chic city bridal shower is both feminine and industrial cool! Thanks to a downtown Toronto venue dressed in brick walls, molded ceilings, and city views little decor was necessary to wow the bride and her guests. Daniella Visconti of Little Miss Party decorated the tables with soft white and blush florals, simple modern menus, and potted succulents for the guests to take home as a thank you. No bridal shower would be complete without games and sweets! From a cookie bar to a “He said, She said” match up, the day included everything a shower should entail. Plus, it was beautiful to boot!
The bride-to-be shares more about her gorgeous shower…
Hosted by my mother and soon-to-be mother in law, we celebrated a Parisian-inspired bridal shower lunch at a quaint restaurant in Toronto’s Distillery District. Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie is a venue fit for a chic event like this one. The room is decked out in vintage décor, art, and mirrors. The beautiful windows, lighting, and ceilings make the space charming and full of character.
Guests enjoyed a lovely three-course lunch. They could choose to start with either tomato soup or Ceasar salad. Then, a main course of salmon or chicken. And finally, the sweetest course of all, a maraschino cherry tartlet with vanilla and salted caramel ice cream.
This shower will filled with many traditional-game-loving guests, but we kept it simple and only played a few games that didn’t really involve much movement. We organized games at each guests’ seat that were simple and sweet. One of our favorites was He Said, She Said. The game card had a variety of different statements and guests had to guess who they thought said each – the bride or the groom! Another crowd pleaser was the Date Night Jar. Guests were able to write a fun date idea for the happy couple and place them in a jar for the bride and groom to use when they’re stuck for a date idea!
The dessert table featured a two-tiered semi naked cake as the focal point. Also included on the sweet table were a variety of cookies and squares made for the taking. There were to-go containers ready for the ladies to pack up as many cookies as they could fit!
And of course, the lovely groom-to-be popped in at the end for a quick hello and flower drop off.
