Hi CT Bees!
I currently live in and am getting married in Charleston, SC, however, my mother is going to throw me a shower back home in CT. My parents live in central CT and would like to keep the shower somewhat close to home.
Does anyone have any recommendations?? We would like to do a Sunday brunch.

@sweettealove: Hello! I had my shower at Esca in Middletown, CT. It was fabulous. They don’t charge a room rental fee, and you get to use this really cool mezzanine space, totally separate from the restaurant. The food was awesome, and the staff there was incredible. They let my mom go in the night before to decorate so it was ready to go the morning-of.
We opted for a luncheon shower, rather than a brunch but I know they offer that as well. The food was fabulous. They allowed us to bring our own cake, which saved $$. I can’t recommend them enough! Plus, the location was so central in CT that nobody had to drive more than 20 minutes. Win!

@FutureCuomo6610: That sounds perfect! I was actually thinking somewhere in Middletown, Rocky Hill, or Cromwell would be a perfect location. I will definitely have to give them a call! Thank you!

@sweettealove: Awesome, good luck! It really is a great space and a terrific value. The woman I dealt with there was named Elisa, in case you want to ask for her by name. They were also very quick to respond to my email inquiries.
Best of luck!
