Nautical Baby Shower Décor

 When planning your decor, just remember that you can’t go wrong with a color scheme of red, white and blue (or pink, white and blue).  From an anchor made out of balloons to using lifesaver candies to tie your napkins, the possibilities are endless on ways to keep the theme going! Consider hanging items on the wall behind the food table so that there will be a nice backdrop for taking photos.

Party Activities

We love the idea of having keepsake for the mom-to-be such as this lifesaver float that guests can sign and can later be hung in the baby’s nursery.

All new mothers love tips from tried and true moms who have lots of wisdom to share. Set up a table with paper and pens and have guests write tips and drop them in a bottle for the guest of honor to take home.
