What better theme than nautical for a little boy’s first birthday? The little sailor’s birthday party is on our baby blog today inspiring us with it’s red, white, and blue details! With goodie filled pails and dozens of sweet treats in the shape of sailboats how could this party not be a hit?! While parents appreciated the fitting decor by Simple Little Details, the kiddos could enjoy crafting paper sailboats and dressing up in their personal sailors hats! Here’s what designers Taleen and Lia had to say about the design!
Welcome aboard to this fun nautical themed first birthday we had the pleasure of designing. As guests arrived they were greeted by a display of crates and fishing net that had a life ring that said “Welcome Aboard”. It was the perfect way to set the scene for the rest of the party. The dining tables were covered in the perfect linen to tie in the theme. They were navy blue with a white rope pattern. The centerpieces were wooden boxes that we embellished with anchors and filled with red, white and blue flowers. Each guest had a utensil packet, which was made out of a red and white striped favor bag with twine wrapped around with an anchor. The favors were little jars filled with red, white, and blue m&ms with an anchor tag. We also continued the theme through the drink table. We displayed glasses that had been embellished with anchor tags and displayed them on wooden crates to create a high and low effect. A bunting banner with different patterns hung across the front of the table. The dessert table was a hit! The backdrop was a life ring with bunting banners hanging on the sides. We found this amazing wooden shelf to hold some of the desserts. My favorite dessert was the sailboat sugar cookies on a stick that we displayed propped up on wooden crates. The cake was also amazing and had all types of elements that fit with the nautical theme.
