A Boy’s Nautical Birthday Party
Combining the glory of sand and sea with a boys nautical themed birthday party makes one fabulous celebration! Louisa, of Little Big Company, styled and photographed this party (with photo editing by Memories of Mine Photography) for her sons 12th birthday. It doesnt get much better than a carefree day at the beach with a sea-inspired smorgasbord of treats! Come alongset your party planning course in the right direction!
- Add a nautical feel to your celebration with seaworthy ideas from this boys nautical first birthday party.
- Rustic meets nautical in this beautifully rustic nautical-themed 2nd birthday party.
I adore the simplicity of Louisas setuptwo, rustic looking ladders with weathered wood planks stretched between them made a magnificent setting for nautical paraphernalia and seaworthy treats. With the wide open sea in the background, a gorgeous metallic marquee style photo frame welcomed party goers.
A standout 3-tiered cake, by 2 Sisters Cakes, effectively conveyed the nautical birthday party theme with fondant details of waves, life preservers and anchors. And ships in a bottle used as a cake topper? Brilliant. 2 Sisters Cakes also created the coordinating cupcakes dressed in nautical striped wrappers, topped with theme perfect anchor and life preserver fondant embellishments. Notice the matching cake pops, too.
Additional treats were intermixed with awesome props: telescopes, model sailboats, nautical rope, oars, periscopes, and small nautical replicas. Cookies (The Iced Biscuit) with fondant initial toppers and editable printable topped versions (printable by Green Beansie Ink) look sailing club handsome. Adding personalization via desserts definitely kicks up the cool factor at a party and its a great way to pay tribute to the guest of honor.
Bet the guys loved seeing rock candy (doesnt it look like treasure?) on the table, as well as the treat filled lanterns. Custom wrappers with the birthday guys age printed on them gave life to full-sized candy bars. Tubes of candy rocks were another creative treat choice.
Nautical wrappers and labels on glass bottles and cups dress up the party in a non-fussy way that would please a group of older boys. And did you notice the anchor stir sticks? There were even mariner map inspired napkins. Details make such a difference in tying a theme together!
Even older boys appreciate party favors. Friends were gifted with decks of themed playing cards, custom wrapped chocolate bars and classic style pens.
What a splendid 12th birthday celebration! Whether you are a land or sea lover, a masculine, nautical themed birthday party is an impressive way to celebrate an older boy.
