So the nautical themed first birthday party has come and gone, and the party was a great success! The weather delivered some sizzling sunshine, and sealed the theme. The party was held in the garden of the lovely God-parents of the birthday boy, and the decked patio with the exposed brick back wall, was the perfect canvas for our theme. The colour palette we chose was made up of navy, apple green, hot orange, white, with hints of pinstripe in shades of blues and white. The decorative accents included, sailing ropes, biodegradable wooden cutlery, navy & apple green napkins, navy grosgrain ribbons, pinstripe ribbons, personalised bunting, water bottles, napkin wrappers, cookies and favour bags, and a nautical inspired cake!
We designed the complete range of the event stationery, based around the nautical icons of a sail boat and an anchor, no 1, and the party slogan Ahoy There! in the chosen colour scheme, and stripes and bold outlines to keep it boyish and playful for a 1 year old, and this also added pops of the colours to the party table. We customised our welcome sign, using a plain white polystyrene ring, and added navy blue strips of ribbon, white cord, and glued on the welcome message, so that the guests were Welcomed Aboard the Nautical theme from the second they arrived!
We used mounted navy blue drinks dispensers for some yummy homemade coolers, and set them at varied heights. We used plain white serving platters for the kids nibbles and added more colour with pineapple, strawberry, and kiwi fruit kebabs dotted with Haribo jellies!
