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.

Nautical Themed Baby Shower

The beach is a big part of the guest-of-honor's life with her family in Florida, so of course a nautical theme was the perfect idea for this baby shower, styled by Mikaila Jayne Event Styling & Planning. The home hosting the event was transformed into "The Seaside Inn" for the afternoon, complete with a hand painted sign for the front of the house. The theme was carried through the paper goods, signage, and even a custom made wooden boat painted with the baby's due date! Tables were draped in beachy white linen and ticking stripe, then topped with mini colanders that doubled as a party favor. Guests also enjoyed treats from a fun hand dipped ice cream bar! See all the photos in the full gallery.
