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!

10 Easy & Cheap Party Table Backgrounds

10 DIY EASY & CHEAP TABLE BACKDROPS

Today I am excited to share the easiest party table backdrop you can create- even if you have no crafty skills.  Plus, its CHEAP!  Who does not love cheap and stunning?  If you can open a package of paper plates and roll out some tape- you can do this! Literally, that is all you need- plates and tape.  No need for instructions here, I think you will get the gist of how to put these backgrounds together, simply from the photos. So, here are ten amazingly easy paper plate backgrounds to install at your next party-

Let’s start with super easy!  These two backdrops above only required a few plates.  They kept it simple by arranging them randomly and spreading them out on the wall. I love the simplicity of this party backdrop but also how fast it would be to put up.

Next up are easy rows of square plates – start with your lowest row, just above your table first, and line them up in perfect rows above. Bam! Simple and fast. Use all the same color or mix it up with alternating colors of square plates.

Same concept as with the square plates, but instead, use round plates.  This one above has overlapped each silver plate slightly to give it a more scalloped and 3D appearance. I could so see this in green and blue for a Little Mermaid themed party- doesn’t that remind you of ocean waves and mermaid scales?! It’s whatever your theme is- go with it!

This white plate background really makes a statement and the use of different alternating colors of paper behind it (use small 8″ x 8″ squares of paper) or you could buy a cheap large vinyl polka dot tablecloth and simply cover the large dots with plates to get the same backdrop of multi colors behind your plates. Plus you won’t have to peel tape off your wall- just tape your plates to the tablecloth and toss it when the party is over!

I’ll leave you with some sunshine.  This one took a bit longer as each plate has been fringed around the edges.  Yes, this can be done easily with fringe scissors. . . you can actually buy these fancy scissors at a local craft store.  They are amazing and you can diy so many other creative party decorations with them.  The added paper plate banner on the front of the table really pulls this whole setup together for a cheerful summer party!

So, what are you waiting for- go get some bright paper plates and design your own party table backdrop!
