A Nautical Baby Shower

By  | Last Updated:  

One baby being born is reason enough for celebration, but a nautical baby shower in honor of two moms-to-be is downright exciting! Styled by Sarah of For the Love, this shower honored two special relatives.  I love how Sarah paired vintage décor with her own handmade decorations.  There are so many sweet nautical details not to be missed! Join me in salivating over the delicious looking treats on a fabulous dessert table (I’m claiming the donuts!).

One of the things I love most about this nautical baby shower is the mix of the new with the old.  Sarah borrowed vintage pieces from relatives and sought out inspiration to create other pieces.

To tie in the nautical theme without going overboard, Sarah tied old glass bottles with wooden anchors.  She added a model sailboat and rustic red lanterns to bring in that out-to-sea vibe.

I adore Sarah’s use of her grandmother’s picnic basket to display the paper plates and utensils. Doesn’t it conjure up daydreams of picnicking on a lazy afternoon while watching the sailboats float by?

A darling “message in a bottle” area was set up for guests to leave a note for each mom-to-be.  I love the custom tags attached to each bottle—such a fun personalization.  I’m sure the moms-to-be enjoyed reading the sentiments.
