My Fiance and I are getting married at Camden Yards this April 2012. We want to do a Maryland theme. I have already decided to do orange koozies with our info and a crab graphic as favors and may stuff them with burger cookies. I also want to get a natty boh and utz girl topper for the cake. Any thoughts on clever ideas for the tables? I was thinking of having a different photo on each table of a landmark in Baltimore/Maryland. Any suggestions? I need help!

Oh fun! I think you have it pretty much covered. Do you want to include the Ravens in any way? Goetze’s candy is made near Johns Hopkins Hospital, so maybe you can have those somehow? Oh, McCormick seasoning! Maybe have different seasonings depending on what you’re having to eat. Berger cookies sound good. You could also check those little touristy shops down at the Inner Harbor.

For table numbers maybe you can use Robert McClintock’s Baltimore postcards?
I had Berger cookie favors, they were awesome and so inexpensive – guests were stealing the leftover ones off the tables LOL. I also considered using Chocolate Crabs flavored with Old Bay – Sweet Cascades chocolate shop in Ellicott City makes them and they are surprisingly delish, but more than I wanted to spend.
Definitely serve crabcakes for dinner. I used a couple of pictures of the Natty Boh guy and the Utz girl (the proposal one and one in a car) on the guest book table as well.
ETA – Our beer selections were Clipper City and Natty Boh, but I will say that really nobody drank the Natty Boh (not surprisingly!). We did include Old Bay, Goetze’s caramel cremes/cow tails, and other Baltimore stuff in the Out-of-Town bags.

Fiance said you should include rice somehow to represent Ray Rice….
