Nautical Inspired Whale Baby Shower Invitation: Ahoy, It’s A Boy and Anchor’s Away A Sweet Baby Girl Is On Her Way

Ahoy Its A Boy Nautical Baby Shower Invitation blue and aqua 64

Last year, my shower planning partner in crime Jess had me create a nautical themed baby shower invite for a shower she was planning.

Shortly there after I listed the invite in my shop and it has come to be one of my more popular invites! And I love the various color schemes that my clients have brought me… I think bringing in red has been my favorite so far.

I even had a request to add in some more “under the sea” animals and designs. Loved that too!

And just recently, I listed a girl’s version of it bringing in some pink (okay, coral to be specific). And I think I love it just as much!

This has been such a fun invite to work on so I wanted to pull together some fun nautical inspired shower ideas for all you land lubbers, so I created a Pinterest board here.

My office is pirate/nautical themed so it was fun delving back into that world for awhile… some of my favorites included: (click the images for more on each shower)

    Hi! Thank you so much for the Nautical art download! I am making some signs for a friend’s shower. Can you tell me what font you used for the “Anchors Away”? I have some slab fonts that are similar, but not the same. Thank you so much!

      Cream puff. I think. I’m not at my computer to double check… And I didn’t want to forget to write you back haha so I figured I’d better be fast and write back right away!

        haha! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was going crazy trying to find those, and I cannot handle using something close… has to match or I twitch incessantly. 😉

        Update: It isn’t Cream Puff. But, you don’t have to reply so fast for this one. Any chance you could let me know tomorrow?

        You are so sweet to help me match your fonts! I don’t think I could have continued with the signs… Really.
