cucumber cream cheese sandwiches

This past weekend Sarah, Jenn, Sheila and I hosted a Little Man Baby Shower for Ashley.  

Ashley requested cucumber sandwiches and they turned out so delicious. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised!   I wasn't sure how they would taste, but at the end of the shower the entire platter of sandwiches was gone!  I think they were a HIT!

Here is how I did it:

I peeled the cucumbers and then sliced them super thin.  
I mixed 2 (8 ounce) packages of softened cream cheese with one packet of Italian seasoning mix.
I then spread the cream cheese mixture on the bread and loaded the cucumbers onto the cream cheese.  
Finally,  I sliced the sandwiches into triangles and cut off the crust.  These dainty little treats are a refreshing sandwich for any shower or luncheon.

Two drinks we served were cucumber water and sweet tea.  

The cucumber water is really simple to make.  I filled the large container with ice and water.  I tossed in one sliced/peeled cucumber and a handful of blueberries.   Sarah's idea to add the blueberries made this water a wonderful treat.  

Please visit Sarah's blog Life {Sweet} Life to see all of the adorable shower pictures including a fun picture of us hostesses, an adorable wreath {made by Jenn} and other Little Man {mustache} themed goodies.
