Photo Diary: My Sister's Bridal Shower

 With the help of my favorite people in the world and Passion Restaurant and Lounge, Adliya, I was able to organize a beautiful and memorable shower for the bride-to-be, a.k.a my sister.
While deciding on a location that has a beautiful ambiance, Excellent food and great service, Passion won hand's down! If you guys haven't been there yet, you really should.( Read my previous post about the place HERE. )
I love the fact that they have ample space for any occasion, be it a dinner date with a loved one, a birthday dinner with your friends or even a rooftop post- graduation party with family and good friends. Chef Nadeem even cooked us some delicious finger food to add to the excitement of the Bridal Shower. Mini burgers (for both my veg and non-veg friends), veg spring rolls with a Thai twist, open faced canapes, chicken samosas and colorful drinks like, mango, pink lemonade and lime juice were all vanishing quickly from the table and yet we still didn't run out of food. Being extremely picky with my food I don't simply endorse any place or brand or restaurant. If I love it, I rave about it! It's as simple as that!

On another note, have a looksie at the paper flower decor and the paper oven boxes! Can you tell they're handmade? Yep. By my incredibly talented BFF / part-time photographer and love, Suaad Mohd.

To conclude, the pictures show what a great day it was and here's wishing my sister all the best for her big day, which BTW is approaching super fast, hence the lack of posts! Forgive me? Pretty please? :)

P.S: Chef Nadeem from Passion has some really great recipes on Youtube. To try out some of his masterpieces at home you can click HERE for some tutorials. If you're a bad cook, well, head over to Passion now!
