A Southern Shower

Recently I got to throw my very first wedding shower! My sister in law is getting married in September and who better to throw her a shower than me! Since we live in the south and mason jars seem to be a bit popular right now I chose to go with a sweet southern theme. 

What better way to go southern than with some homemade Apple Butter? We have a nice little apple tree in our yard, so we thought we'd put it to good use. My husband and I made a few batches of the delicious spread, canned them, and accessorized them with some green and white gingham fabric. 

I found this old crate at a flea market and purchased some burlap from Hobby Lobby to set up shop. 

I made this distressed "Thank You" sign to ensure guests knew these jars were for them.

This combination of colorful sweet flowers in a mason jar really topped off our set up. 

Food Table
The brides aunt put together this gorgeous center piece using flowers from outside the house. Like with our favor table, we used burlap as our table cloth. 

I kept things simple for the plates, but used a combination of floral, stripes and dots for napkins.

We ordered Oreo cake balls with light blue icing, a wedding color, and displayed them in cute black and white muffin cups. 

I could not find any cute serving platters so I put these together myself. I do have a little secret I will share with you later this week. 

I ordered these berry baskets and made a white table trey to set them in. One of the dilemma's I faced was finding cute food label stands, until I had a great idea pop in my head while walking through Hobby Lobby. I bought clothes pins and found these cute cut out shapes.They made the most adorable southern displays. 

To add a cute southern touch I bought these paper doilies from Hobby Lobby. I used one under the punch dispenser and one under the cake ball pedestal. 

Mason jar cups were a given, but to make them even more cute I got these pink striped straws. 

I had this old bucket that was the perfect size for holding mini waters

I made a little wooden sign with a "W". The brides future initial. 

I'd say this was a success! There were so many little touches that made it complete. Be inspired and create!

  1. You have shared good information on wedding favors. Few months ago, I arranged my sister’s ring ceremony at one of lovely wedding venues Chicago. Hired a reputed party caterer and he served delicious food for this event.
