We love how we decided to do something different with the usual Teddy Bear theme and combined it with some nautical elements, hence Sailor Bear! A really cute and appropriate theme for a little boy’s 1st birthday!
The backdrop and cake/dessert table had so many nautical and teddy bear elements, such as ships, anchors, bottles, lanterns and of course, lots of cuddly teddy bears. Even the desserts were customized – lollipops with anchor designs, teddy bear shaped chocolate pops, cupcakes with light blue buttercream frosting and Sailor Bear toppers, and so much more.
The Sailor Bears
We adore the cuddly teddy bears which we dressed up as sailors! We had sailor costumes for the bears, sailor hats and even adorable baby jumpers with anchor prints! The bears were super adorable and such a hit with the guests!
Everything was suited to the theme!
The place cards for the desserts had special well-thought-of names to suit the theme such as “Ocean Spray” for the mineral water bottles, “Teddy’s Treats” and “Captain’s Chocs”.
