I am so excited about today’s post. I absolutely love featuring parties from other talented people and today’s nautical “baby on board” baby shower is one of the cutest I’ve ever seen. With tons of friends who are pregnant or likely to be soon, I’m guessing I’ll be putting together some baby showers of my own in the very near future. Enough about me, let’s look at all of the gorgeous details from this nautical baby shower that the Kate Aspen team styled.
And don’t miss out on the awesome Kate Aspen giveaway at the very end of the post where you could win $50, a good start to buying everything you need to host a baby shower yourself! Now let’s talk about all the sweet baby shower details.
The shoot showcases a pretty display of florals in a soft color palette including shades of pastel pink and baby blue. The color scheme is perfect for a shower for a baby girl, baby boy, or a gender neutral shower if the gender is a surprise!
The table is accented with crisp white linen, a personalized “Baby on Board” themed table runner, and lots of nautical accents like a cute starfish, a bucket wrapped with nautical rope as a flower vase made with this tutorial, and sweet starfish cookies.
A nautical “Baby on Board” baby shower is the perfect, sophisticated theme for any mom to be. Nautical blues and pretty pinks are complemented by pops of seersucker pattern. Whimsical waves and aquatic anchor details embellish personalized paper goods, including the water bottle labels and favor boxes, while pulling together the theme.
Sweet treats like cookies, cakes, and mimosas are always in fashion at a shower! To keep with the theme, our nautical themed shower featured cake pops designed to look like knots of rope. Add another personal touch by wrapping striped party flags around cake pops sticks.
A fun alternative to the traditional guest book is a message in a bottle station. Have guests write messages to baby using “Message in a Bottle” tubes. Once written, guests slip the notes back into the bottles. The notes can be added to a baby book for memories that the whole family will treasure. Guests will love this clever “wish book” idea and the new parents will enjoy reading all the sweet messages.
Be sure to thank your guests with a personalized favor! Fill boxes with pink or blue macaroons or wrapped lifesavers for a nautical treat.
