Nautical Party: Ahoy! It’s a Boy. Today I’m sharing the Nautical Baby Shower I styled for my sister in law’s baby shower.  It’s full of  crabs and boats and anchors galore. Be sure to check out all of my Nautical party ideas and inspiration.nautical baby shower

Ahoy, matey!  This swashbuckling baby shower is a red, white and blue affair fit for a sweet little man.  I styled this baby shower for my sister in law while she was pregnant with my nephew.  She had a nautical nursery planned, so I themed the shower around the nursery…I mean honestly, why not?  This is actually one of my favorite things to do with a baby shower.  I love that by using the nursery theme as the shower theme, you can actually gift the mommy to be some of the decor, which makes some of those more expensive decor decisions extra worth it!!!!

My brother loves the Beatles (check out the Beatles themed Rehearsal Dinner I styled for their wedding), so it was fitting to use the “Hey, Jude” lettering as the centerpiece of the dessert table.  I love the way the markee letters shine in the middle of the table.

These red velvet cupcakes are amazing!  They are one of my favorite treats. I may or may not use red in parties just to be able to get these cupcakes!!!3

Another great multi-purpose decor idea is to use Iron-on Adhesive Roll Fabric Fusing Tape and fabric on White Onesies to create a banner of baby clothes that the baby can actually wear after the fact.

We had fun games and a sign in board that guests could put a little note for mama and baby.  We also had the Wishes For Baby cards that could be filled out with funny or sweet reminders of things we wish for the new baby.
