I’ve been sharing the DIY favours I made for my sisters donut themed bridal shower (sprinkles and chocolate bars) and today I’m back with pictures from the actual shower! We had the bridal shower at Deep Cove on a nice hot day in May, so hot that the amazing donut cake we had started to melt! It was an amazing day and I can’t wait to share with you the details put together by my good friend (and food editor) Manpreet from Simply Sophie Decor!
Just a quick heads up: I took all the pictures (not Gursheel) and therefore they are not the best. He did edit them for me to make them look a lot better than what they were. Also, it was quite windy that day and the balloons just did not sit still to get a good shot. But everything was beautiful! As people walked by they kept saying how beautiful everything looked and how insta worthy it is! I really wish I was able to capture the true beauty of the bridal shower.
Okay, now on to the donut themed bridal shower. My sister Takdeer LOVES anything pink and especially loves donuts. Along with the fact that she loves fun, we thought a donut themed pool party would be the perfect theme for her bridal shower. Originally I wanted to have this party at a pool but those are so hard to rent out! So we decided outdoors, near the water at Deep Cove. I was imagining having a bunch of donut floaties in the pool as we floated in them and just relaxed! This worked perfectly though, no one wanted to get wet so some people just lay in the donut floatie on the grass (by some people, I mean just Takdeer, hahaha).
We had the bridal shower on the grassy part near the water. We just laid down some white fabric and had these really cool tables from our friend that are actually lawn chairs! By adding some tablecloth and a table runner, you have the perfect setup. The food was absolutely delicious and was made by friends and family. We had some really cool donut themed plates, straws, napkins to complete the look.
We had one main table where we served drinks (lemonade was essential this day), displayed the favours, donut shaped cookies, donut cake and the super cool donut peg board made by Parveen from Citrus Hues! She also did amazing calligraphy for different signs, my favourite being the refreshments one! Manpreet also had this really cool idea to have fresh flowers and put them into milk jars with some milk and it looked so beautiful!
We also had games, and my favourite was definitely the classic toilet paper dress game. However, we had a little spin to the classic game and used dollar store finds instead of toilet paper and the dresses were so cool! We also had Takdeer knock down a donut shaped piñata, just because we found a donut piñata and just had to use it. It was fun watching her struggle! Haha!
I had such a great time that day and will definitely look back onto how beautiful everything was. The hardest part was lugging everything back into the cars after the party was over, especially in the intense heat. The donut cake had a hard time too, it melted near the end!
