A Natural {State} Baby Shower

This past Saturday I helped throw a shower for my good friend Lindsey. Her sweet friend Katie and I planned a very "natural" shower (as in the natural state - the food tags & decor were in the shape of Arkansas) for her and baby Tyler!

The hostesses and Linds:

My sweet friend Whitney was able to make it! She drove over an hour with her TWO WEEK OLD! She is amazing!

Can you guess what I was in charge of? Food, of course!

Chris made some awesome wood pedestals, and Katie's friend had a few that we borrowed as well. They went perfectly with our theme.

I made S'more's cupcakes (recipe coming):
 Individual crudités:

 Fruit Salad with Orange Mint Syrup:

 Little individual chip bags:

And three kinds of sandwiches. I did salami with provolone, honey ham with swiss and smoked turkey with sharp cheddar.

Oh, and spinach dip, of course! I make that for everything!

For drinks, we had sweet tea, citrus water and my friends punch recipe.

This shower gave me the perfect excuse to buy mason jars. I've been wanting them forever!

I went all out with the silverware too! I ordered wooden cutlery and little paper chevron bags. I added a napkin and some bakers twine and voila!

It was a great shower for a great friend! Lindsey and baby Tyler got lots of wonderful gifts. I can't wait to meet him!
