Set sail with us on a modern world traveler-themed baby shower adventure. With the help of D & P Celebrations, hostess Missy arranged for a personalized shower for her sister Maria by combining two of Maria’s loves – her sailor husband and photography – into one very unique baby shower. Guests were invited into a unique shower venue that was decked out in cheerful shades of yellow and blue where they could imagine all of the places the new little one would go and the sights he would see as a future adventurer and traveler. Invitations, festive decorations, gorgeous baby shower cakes, and cupcakes and treats all were selected to coordinate for a smooth party voyage.
- Plan the perfect baby shower with these fun baby shower games and activities
Planned at a well-lit loft rented by some area photographers, it was the perfect venue to celebrate the impending arrival of Maria’s sweet little one. Colorful poms and tablecloths added a vibrant pop of color against white walls. Classic white cake stands and serving dishes housed delicious treats, including this absolutely brilliant 3-tiered cake of spiced chai with salted caramel icing AND mocha latte with buttercream icing. A fondant camera and anchor pair nicely to connect the theme.
A printable banner helped reflect the party theme and tie the color scheme together perfectly. One of the most impressive aspects of this shower was the menu. Mouthwatering dishes such as bacon and gruyere mac and cheese, Hawaiian chicken salad with lettuce wraps, Caprese crostini’s, and several salad varieties were served. An egg salad sandwich would also be fantastic and an event like this. Great food is the hallmark of any wonderful event.
Traditional favorites (like Baby Word Scramble) are mixed with unique baby shower games to add to the enjoyment of this celebration. Missy took headshots of the parents-to-be, cut the pictures into strips, and then had guests arrange their version of what the baby would look like. You can imagine the hysterical results!
Guests didn’t leave empty-handed. Custom favor boxes in a yellow chevron pattern were dressed up with favor tags and filled with a variety of both practical and delicious gifts. For the sweet tooth, yummy petite meringues were included. Elastic hair ties in the party colors filled the useful gift role. Attendees also got to choose a nail polish color of their liking to add to their gift box. Such fun parting gifts!
