{Amazing} Ahoy! Its a Boy! Nautical Baby Shower

This Ahoy! It’s a Boy! Nautical Baby Shower by (Captain) Angela Sims, editor of Bliss Bridal Magazine, is just filled to the brim with sea-faring details. Coming from a graphic design background myself, I’m especially smitten with the creative paper elements… scroll down for a peek at the insanely cute sailboat-shaped invitation! From silver anchor centerpieces to an adorable sailboat-topped cake, this party is chock full of incredible nautical inspiration throughout. One thing’s for sure… Baby Parker is definitely sailing into this loving family in style. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Fantastic chalkboard photo booth backdrop with handwritten details about both sides of little Parker’s family
– Glittering scrapbook paper dessert table backdrop + custom hanging artwork by mom
– Ship helm-topped diaper cake, glittering anchor-wrapped candles & DIY sparkling flutes and utensils
– Mini chocolate pie pops + pretty sailboat & anchor sugar cookies

PARTY DETAILS as told by Angela

I am the publisher of Bliss Bridal Magazine and since we do photo shoots daily, I wanted to go all out for my own shower. I decided on a Nautical Themed Shower with a custom made dessert board designed by me. The backdrop is glitter scrapbook paper covered over a piece of board with a custom hanging piece made by me as well.

The outdoor tables had ikea glasses that were spray painted and glittered, chargers, and silverware that were spray painted and glittered as well. Custom candles were made by mom from ribbon, rope and glitter covered anchors.

I LOVED this themed shower. I am attempting to re-create the red framed, blue chevron, white lettered initials. Would you be able to provide any suggestions on the supplies you used and where you purchased them?
