…Pina’s Culinary Experience, Where We Hosted My Sister’s Bridal Shower!

 For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing with you all of the little details from the bridal shower my sister and I recently hosted for our little sister.  Now I’ve saved the last post on the shower to share the venue details, Pina’s Culinary Experience in Roselle, IL.!   If you’re looking for a place to host your intimate wedding, shower or event, Pina’s is wonderful – I highly recommend them!

From the minute we found this place, we knew it would be perfect.  This charming little spot has only been open for about 2 years but has become quite popular…and I can see why!  The service is top-notch, the menu is affordable and the chefs there are so great to work with.  No, I really mean it – if you host your event there, you’ll end up wanting to hug them (I actually did)!

The venue offers tasty and delightful cooking classes and also can be used to host private events.  There are two rooms, the Mediterranean style room in the front (shown on their website) and the larger room on the side, which is the room we hosted the bridal shower in.

The larger room is newly remodeled with a lovely contemporary feel!  Supporting local artists by hanging their gorgeous artwork on the walls, Pina’s is not only attractive inside but very into helping the community as well.  They’re just really good people!

I still can’t believe how affordable it was to have the shower at Pina’s.  Can you believe it was even less expensive than hosting it at an “affordable” restaurant?!  I researched so many places before we found Pina’s and I’m so thrilled with our decision to have the shower there.  Not to mention the fact that we had our own private room and our own personal gourmet chef

Chef Edward was extremely accommodating  with helping us plan for the shower and allowing us to decorate however we wanted.  He even helped us decorate…hanging the tissue flower poms we made, the banner I created and more.  He came to the rescue with a few things I had forgotten about too…like the candy for my “P-A-R-T-Y” dishes and the music for the shower.  What a guy!

He also let us come in and set up a couple of days early, so that it would be easier on us the morning of the shower.  By the time the guests arrived, everything was set in place and ready to go.  My, did it look beautiful!!! 

Everything was perfect – the atmosphere, the service, the food.  Oh, that food…so yummy!  Dessert was fabulous too…he created for us fresh individual cherry cheesecakes, chocolate-covered strawberries and one very tasty cake
