My Nautical Baby Shower
I’m seriously the luckiest girl in the whole wide world to get to have these amazing baby showers thrown for my little guy! This post is about my nautical themed shower thrown by my best friend, Amie! Her attention to detail was impeccable, there were things I missed in person that I only just now noticed looking at the photos!
Of course, she didn’t do it alone… I’m so thankful for all the girls who helped her plan, craft, and set up that day! And to her hubby for his help in “crafting” and her mama for watching her kiddos and more!
Every corner of the backyard was decorated, it was truly amazing!
Of course, we have to start with the invitation. Amie found these PERFECT invites on Etsy… but she let me address the envelopes! I was so excited to get to help in this small way!
Isaiah’s nursery is nautical themed so Amie used his room as inspiration for colors and the overall look. But she took is so far above anything I could have dreamed of. View her Pinterest board here.
When you walked up to the house, this table greeted you! Each guest was asked to leave me a message with words of encouragement as I enter motherhood.
Once I got into the backyard, I just couldn’t believe my eyes. There was so much to look at!
The tables were each set with a different centerpiece…
Behind the guest tables, sat the gift table and this amazing fabric banner.
But before you got to the guest tables, you had to walk by this darling drink table! Some of these decorations are from my office and Isaiah’s room too!
Some of my favorite decorations though were under the pergola where the food table was… which by the way, the food was amazingly delicious!!
Amie’s husband BUILT the boat centerpiece. It was incredible.
How cute are these little boats that hung above the pergola! I’m still trying to think of a way to hang the garland in his room because they are just so cute and perfectly rustic!
Each food item was labeled with a message in a bottle. These were just too cute! Creative! And Crafty!
Plus the main entree of chicken salad croissant sandwiches were made to look like crabs. Cuteness overload!
A table was set up for some of the games… guessing how many “fish in the sea” and a ladder was set up with family photos to guess who is who.
A lot of the graphics were revised by my friend Courtney from a set I bought off Etsy here.
Guests that brought diapers (THANK YOU!!!) were entered into a drawing for a prize. The saying on the tickets was so perfectly themed.
And lastly, the shower favors were homemade bath salts! Amie bought this container of Epsom salt from Hobby Lobby and then followed the instructions, like adding essential oils to the salt, to make the bath salts.
Thank you so much to my hostess with the mostest, my Amie Belle! You really outdid yourself! I couldn’t be more thankful for such a perfect day to celebrate my son!
And a big thanks to all my friends and family that attended. My boy is so loved and I couldn’t be more appreciative for each and every one of you!
