Glam Nautical First Birthday Party {Gold, Pink & Navy}

I’m loving the decidedly GLAM twist that Courtney Adams of Courtney Adams Design put on this gold, pink & navy Nautical First Birthday Party for her (super adorable) little girl, Parker! Eye catching details like a giant marquee light anchor, bold sequined linens, and cleverly named treats (i.e. “Watermelon Wharf”!) were tied together beautifully with the help of chic nautical themed printables by Chickabug. For boatloads of pretty party inspiration + some darling mommy-and-me moments, set sail for the rest of the party below….

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gold sequin & marquee anchor backdrop + giant balloons with ribbon tassels
– Script “One” silhouette cake topper + tiny gold party hat/headband for the birthday girl!
Buoy Blueberry Sangria & True North Tea (all decked out with glittery gold bows)
Stowaway yogurt parfaits, Watermelon Wharf fruit pops, and Convoy kettle chips
– Homemade “life saver” door wreath + anchor silhouette cupcake toppers

{Splish Splash} Twins Beach Bash Birthday Party

It’s already quite the task to style a birthday party for one kid, but add another one to the mix and you’ve got yourself a real feat! Case in point: check out this awesome Beach Bash Birthday Party that Julie Verville of Crowning Details created the for twin boys, Tanner & Joey. And even though summer is fast approaching, not all of us have easy access to the beach… so to fully “transport” party guests for this occasion, Julie even had sand brought into the backyard!! I’d say that definitely deserves four thumbs up ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Beach ball cake balls & flip flop cookies + crabby croissant sandwiches & party circle cupcake toppers
– Beach-inspired tablescape with starfish & nautical floral centerpieces + driftwood framed signs
– Inflatable surfboards & water slides + a beach ball & fish netting dessert table backdrop
– Fondant beach ball topped birthday cakes & beach bucket party favors filled with sand essentials
