Nautical Party Ideas

Yo ho, yo ho a pirate’s life for me…or at least a party planners who loves cutesy little sea creatures and baked goods life for me.  I’ve been a girl mom for over 8 years.  I’m comfortable in my girl mom status and I love my little princess-girly-girl-divas. 

☑️ This Nautical Party Kit is the perfect set to get your party planning headed in the right direction!


Six months ago, however, I added a little man to my mommy stats and he is a welcome and completely new experience for our girl house.  So because of this little dude and his, well boyishness…I have had trucks and monsters and sailboats on the brain.

A nautical party is a great theme for a sweet little boy.  I envision a cute little chubby cheeked 2 year old in a sailor suit munching on crab shaped cookies.  Are you with me?
