{party} Ahoy! It’s a Boy – Nautical Baby Shower

Nautical Baby Shower Dessert Table

  i am excited to share this precious ahoy! it’s a boy nautical baby shower styled by Pat at ZPerfect Party!  Itsy Belle designed the cute printables using a color palette of teal, yellow, white, and navy blue.  i love how the whale and the heart cutouts from Creativities Galore pop on the cupcakes.  the addition of the anchors just make the party- along with the yummy looking sweets (and of course the MACARONS!)! you can find several of the pieces on the table and the booties at Target.  the photography is just stunning, by Maria Healey.  i love the flowers that sit inside the cute little booties!

i asked Pat to provide a little bit of insight to this precious party and here is what she had to say:  we had so much fun styling this Ahoy It’s a Boy Shower and Dessert Table for a special mama in anticipation of baby W at a local bistro.  often people don’t realize they can easily embellish a restuarant setting by bringing in their own table top decor.

chair banners are easy and quick to attach to customize a resturant brunch or luncheon.  we brought in our own decorative linen napkins and round placemats, purchased at Target, and created small floral centerpieces in adorable baby shoes.  just pop flowers in a small vessel such as a shot glass in the shoe.  fresh flowers like a mum or gerber can last for the duration of the party and no water is required.

store bought desserts were enhanced with custom cutouts from Creativities Galore and Itsy Belle.  be sure to call ahead to make sure that your venue of choice is ok with this and can give you a table to set the stage for your desserts, favors, and gifts.

    Cannot find any of this stuff anywhere and I’m getting frustrated. I love nautical but it’s hard to find it in this color scheme. I’ve been looking everywhere for all of this and cannot locate anything but the etsy page. Please help! I really would love to have this exact same thing for my shower coming up!!!
