Two weekends ago a group of us from college headed down to Greenville, SC to throw a shower for our friend/sorority sister/old roommate Cheryl. We did a wine themed shower: we served three different types of wine with cheese pairing, grapes, more cheese & crackers, chicken salad sliders, pasta salad, hummus & veggies & ranch dip. All of the hostesses were from out of town and most of us had a slumber party at Cheryl’s house Friday & Saturday night. Instead of booking a restaurant that we didn’t know about, we took over Cheryl’s house as the shower location. Saturday morning we ran around like crazy kids putting it all together, but everything came together and the shower was a success! The guests were a good mix of college & grad school friends, his family, & her mom (who flew in as a surprise!). Our friend Carrie made the cutest wine tags as favors.

We relaxed at her house for a few hours before getting ready for the night out! We started with dinner at Smoke on the Water. Our next stop was Soby where Cheryl’s first shots of the evening took place. Then we walked up & down the main downtown street in Greenville~ we chatted at this sushi places & Carrie & Brehon did sake bombs! Then we hit up more college age bars which made us feel old but we still had fun! The last place of the night had a great bartender who gave us shots on fire! Yay for occasions to get together & have a girl’s night out with great friends!
Downtown Greenville was really cool. I’m looking forward to heading back down there for Cheryl & Brian’s wedding at the end of October. More good times for sure!
