Nautical themed dessert table

Okay… if you don’t like this party be ready to walk to the plank. ;) Stephanie of Spaceships and Laser Beams styled this Nautical Birthday Bash for her nephew’s birthday. She did a great job with tying all of the elements together in this strictly “BOYS ONLY” party – from the fun “Nautical Knots” to the patterned “Happy Birthday” bunting & graphic backdrop!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for…..

– “Grog” water bottle wrappers
– Gingham & stripe patterned nautical themed printables
– Graphic paper octopus and ship cupcake wrappers
– Delicious “Nautical Knot” + “Lemon Sand Dollar” cookies
– Orange Basil Vanilla cake with sugar sand & gingham ship flag toppers

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Stephanie

It’s Stephanie of Spaceships and Laser Beams, the Etsy party printable shop that is just for boys. I wanted to send you photos of a “REAL” dessert table that I just did for my nephew’s birthday this weekend. He turned 16, is very much into sports, fishing and history – so our new Vintage Nautical birthday theme seemed like the perfect fit.

The guest list included virtually ever age – from young cousins to grandparents so I wanted to offer a varied palette of tastes. Sweets on the dessert table included two cakes (chocolate/vanilla bean and orange/basil) and blueberry vanilla cupcakes “dressed” up with our printables. To reinforce the theme, we also had ginger flavored nautical knot cookies, lemon sand dollar cookies.
