Party Recap

I am in-love with this nautical party design we created especially for sweet Walker’s 1st birthday party. Classic sailboats, calligraphy font and modern designs melded together bringing this fun party concept together for this cutie pie and his family and friends.

Some details to look for include:
-Cupcakes with sail toppers displayed in boat hulls
-Oyster cake balls displayed in ½ shells and sand (aka brown sugar)
-Custom wood signage throughout the party
-Fun photo booth area
-Monogrammed sand buckets filled with snacks during the party and doubling as the favor

Main Dessert Table
Anchoring this adorable sweets table was the custom signage from Created by Jackie featuring the sailboat and monogram from the party’s invitation. On either side of this amazing backdrop housed simple cupcakes dressed up with sailboat toppers and displayed in boat hulls. Oyster cake balls were displayed in half shells on sand (aka brown sugar), and 2 floral arrangements inspired by the sea offered height for this table display.

Children’s Tables
These sweet tables were modern and classic by design; navy linens, white table runners, patterned placemats and white chivari chairs set the backdrop. The banners were displayed above the table in nautical clear glass/rope containers. And, each place setting boasted personalized sand buckets for each of the tiny guests filled with packaged snacks and doubling as favors.

Party Activities
Everywhere you looked there was something to entertain these tiny guests; sailboat water table, buckets of water filled with games such as go-fish, catch the duckies and fish the sailboats out with nets. There was an adorable photo booth area filled with dress-up items, an adorable wave backdrop and disposable cameras for guests to capture their poses. And, to get everyone in the sailor mood, fun white sailor hats were available for all of the guests at the sign in table.
