The Partiologist: Nautical Baby Shower!

Nautical Baby Shower!

Time to set sail...our last day on the water. Or at the party. I thought I would share the photo of the cookies again. I mean, they took a lot of time to make and thought they deserved another look.

Ahoy! Baby Cookies

Each one created with a little baby boy in mind.

All the toppers were made of fondant. So much fun to make!

With all the desserts, we needed a little something to wash it down. So let's sail on over to the beverage station.

Not just any iced tea, it was High Seas Iced Tea. Served in frozen bottles tied with rope and a cute tag.

Along with a bucket of chocolate covered almonds. Tied with twine and a paper anchor.

In case you just wanted a cold glass of water, the guests knew where to go to find it.

And the napkins held the blue cutlery tied with a lifesaver. Normally I don't use plastic, but this time, they had to be blue.

And of course the plates.

Did I mention there might be more desserts? Yikes!

Over on the sofa table, I filled it with more nautical d├ęcor and sweets.

Notice the bags on the bottom? Something for each guest to take and fill with treats.

I started sending home desserts from my parties and now I think my guests would be disappointed if there were nothing for them to take home.

When I found the galvanized boat, I knew I had to get it for my party.

It was quite large, so I filled anchor bags with kettle corn and added them to the boat.

One of the bowls held "ocean spray" cranberries and pistachios. Get it?

Okay, I'll move on to the next. Cream cheese starfish mints.

Most of my parties have mints of some sort. The homemade kind.

And because I didn't have enough sweets, I added a favorite.

Coconut macaroons. Bagged and ready to take home. But why did I bag them I wondered. They're my favorite cookie and I kind of wanted them all to myself.

In case you're not a coconut fan, I've got more cookies.

Monster cookies filled with red, white and blue M & M's. 

Last, but definitely not least, were the cake pops.

I mean, once I set up the kitchen, I needed to make desserts to fill all my stands. Or maybe I needed stands to hold all the desserts?

You could say I got my use out of my anchor mold, right?

Well, it looks like the ship has sailed ashore. I do hope you enjoyed sailing with me!

Until we sail again...
Ships Ahoy!
It's a Boy


  1. Your treats and decorations always look so amazing. I love how you tie everything together using a theme. This theme is perfect for a baby shower for a boy! I love it.

    1. Aww, thank you so much! I had great fun making everything!

  2. Good gracious - they definitely deserve a 2nd and 3rd and 4th look. You certainly outdid yourself with the shower and now the goodies. I can't even imagine how many hours were involved with all this!!! It's all so clever and ambitious. Baby Boy, when he's older, better look back at all this and know how much he was loved since the very beginning.

    1. How sweet, thank you! I enjoyed every minute of planning and preparing it. And this little boy is loved more than he'll ever know! :)
