I was asked to design a baby shower for a baby boy. I came up with something a little different. Why not a nautical theme? The idea was simple and cute and now my next task would be to be able to find nautical items in a timely fashion. But I did and it came out beautifully.

I researched many designers and their nautical artwork and this invitation stood out the most. The words themselves formed an anchor and the colors matched what I was going for perfectly.

Party Details

I designed this Nautical baby shower a while back but haven't been able to post the details. I had free reign if the baby was a boy and so I was able to come up with whatever I decided. I was watching Popeye and instantly thought of a Nautical themed baby shower.  

For this party, I decorated the guest tables with white soft cloth linens and a navy blue runner, Tabletops all featured a piece of nautical decor - lanterns, anchors, sand and sea shells. I competed the look with the vintage nautical images I had printed on card stock, nautical themed napkins and the party favor boxes. It looked so elegant and was indeed very inexpensive. 

The main cake table was designed with a cake trio. I wanted the cakes to be the main attraction and so I placed very few items on the table. The linen was a soft t-shirt material with a navy blue and beige tablecloth. It set the stage for the decor with beige, red, navy blue and light blue.  I added a vintage sailboat, star fishes and sand vases. 

Her chair was covered in linens and I made her a custom pillow with the same custom image I had used on the onesie hanging on the wall. 

It was one of my favorite parties to design and the mom-to-be loved everything.
