Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Ahoy! It's a Boy! - A Nautical Themed Baby Shower

Ahoy! It's a Boy! - A Nautical Themed Baby Shower

Ahoy! It's a boy! Elle's Couture Events took this fun theme and designed a beautifully detailed, nautical inspired baby shower. A red, navy, and white palette was the perfect fit with this theme, and the space was filled with coordinating elements, like shipping rope, fishing nets, seashells, boats, wooden crates, and other nautical props.

As guests arrived, they wrote a "message in a bottle" for the parents to be, along with sweet "Dear Baby" letters. Guests enjoyed beverages from mason jars adorned with tied-on life savers, striped straws, and little drink flags. Cupcakes by The Sweets Fairy Bakeshop were also decked out to the theme featuring nautical symbol toppers. Each guest also took a bit of the ocean home with them in the sea salt scrub favors, wrapped with burlap and sea shells. Patrick Nyree Photography captured all of the photos, and you can see more from this event in the full gallery!
