Nautical Themed Boy Baby Shower

By  | Last Updated:  

Ahoy! You’re invited aboard this handsome nautical boy’s baby shower, created by Giggle Bean, for a US Navy officer and his wife. A classic naval theme with navy, red, anchors, and stripes was essential! While this look is striking alone, it’s stunning paired with treasures of the sea—like lovely clusters of seashells. A themed dessert table, plus decorations that mom-to-be will be thrilled to use again in the nautical nursery, add up to a boatload of fun ideas at a party preparing for the arrival of a special little sailor. Don’t wait for a message in a bottle, plot a course through the photos captured by VonArt Photography, and set sail for a seafaring celebration!

Serene shades of blue, with fun pops of red, set a scene as fresh as a sea breeze, and guest tables look adorable decked out in sea-worthy décor! Printable banners, by Ian and Lola Designs, are strung on jute anchored to bamboo poles, which stand in bright red pails filled with pretty seashells. A fishing net table runner is the perfect trim for elegant sail boat centerpieces, which will be used later in the nursery. Tiny life preservers (Lifesaver candies) are tied on with jute to serve as napkin rings.

I love when baby gifts and items are used to decorate a baby shower, and these little onesies couldn’t be more appropriate.

A ship-to-shore snack table is hard to resist, especially with themed refreshments like “She’s About to Pop… Corn” in cute little paper tubs! Other nautical nibbles include “Ships Ahoy Cookies,” “Life Preserver” donuts, “Nautical Ropes” licorice twists, and scrumptious cupcakes. Using different sizes and shapes of serving ware creates interest, and beautiful beachy accent pieces and framed word art complete the look.

This nautical boys baby shower is made special by dad-to-be’s position in the US Navy, and Giggle Bean made it even more memorable by using future nursery pieces in the shower décor.
