Nautical Party Inspiration

NAUTICAL PARTY INSPIRATION

So I bet you are thinking it is time to put away all those 4th of July decorations.  Wait- not just yet!

 If you have a summer birthday, barbecue, or any event coming up . . . why not use those red, white and blue decorations and deck out your celebration with what you have on hand? Most of what you may have in your stash of stars and stripes patriotic decor can be pulled into a nautical party. Today I am sharing a roundup of five stunning nautical themed parties, but first stop by my Etsy shops below and see if any of my available red, white, and blue party decorations may be an ideal fit at your next nautical or beach themed party-

The crepe paper streamer table backdrop at this party is so easy to create. Just cut and hang in straight strips.

Anchors and sailboats are the dominate decor at this nautical first birthday party!

This is a great set up with lots of stripes and sand dollars and don’t forget the straws.  Don’t forget if you have some beach decor around the home, those make perfect props at a nautical party table- like the giant anchor, lifesaver, and lighthouse at this party above.

This ahoy party features great balloon styling!  Those columns of balloons flanking the table make a stunning statement.

Be sure to visit my Pinterest balloon board for more balloon diy ideas.

This adorable nautical baby shower in a “Welcome Aboard” theme in soft pastel blues is perfect for a little baby boy on the way!

Hope these nautical parties have inspired you to start planning your next event!

Summer Parties – Classic Themes

SUMMER PARTY THEMES

Summer is almost here and its time to start planning that outdoor party!  Today I am sharing a roundup of ideal go-to themed parties for your next celebration.  While most of these are kids birthday parties, they are great summer themes for any event too – a Memorial Day family gathering, a barbacue, an adult backyard party, or an employee corporate event.

So grab your sunhat and cocktail and let’s get going to the party!

First up is the classic Lemonade party.  Nothing says summer like lemons!  This party was complete with an actual lemonade stand too.

Oh you know I love these two parties because both feature big PINWHEELS and the one above with a TISSUE TASSEL GARLAND!

Of course strawberries are synonymous with summer too so they make for the perfect theme at this Strawberry Shortcake party.  Love those PAPER FLOWERS on the candy baskets too.

There is no shortage of fruit at any of these parties- next is a watermelon party complete with little hand cut black seeds added to the pink GLOBES– so clever!

 The spread at this watermelon party tablescape is stunning too.

A cherry party is perfect in the summer.  Love all the printed cherry images and the matching striped STRAWS.

Last is a picnic party at a public park- but this could be easily done in a backyard too.  That over the top cake decorated with miniature ants is adorable.  Anything GINGHAM or red and white checks is absolutely necessary at a picnic themed party- but looks great at any summer party too.
