Summer Backyard Baby Shower with a Nautical Theme

Summer Backyard Baby Shower with a Nautical Theme

A nautical theme is such a summer classic, and this baby shower designed by friends Ashley and Courtney for their friend Megan Epper of Epper Photography is such a lovely, stylish take on it. They transformed a backyard into a beautiful event space, creating an archway draped in fabric and adoring tables with seersucker runners in navy and white. A collection of different blue and white mix and match vases kept things interesting and were filled with an array of Megan's favorite flowers: hydrangeas, tulips, and roses. So beautiful! For some sweet decor, the hostesses and Megan's husband Chris surprised the mama-to-be with a garland of her weekly belly growth photos.

Guests enjoyed a spread of appetizers including sliced meats, artisan cheeses, assorted olives, nuts, breadsticks, and a variety of deviled eggs (one of Megan's favorites), along with their choice of iced tea, white wine sangria, mimosas, and Izze soda. For the seated meal, mini sandwiches and a variety of summer salads were served family style. Yum! After some games, including a fun, custom Mad Libs, "Don't Say Baby" clothespin game, and name that nursery rhyme, the party moved inside for presents and cold root beer floats--so perfect to cool down in the summer!
