31 Days of Weddings-Day 6: Nautical Theme

I love Nautical themed weddings-navy, crisp white, pops of color (usually yellow or red), star fish/sea shells, sand, lighthouses, rope-love love love.

It always makes an adorable theme for weddings too but can have a touch of sophistication if you do it right.

Some ways you can make sophisticated invitations are:ImageImageImage

Normally I would touch on what style wedding dress goes best, but with this theme, you can really pick any: A-line, mermaid (that is probably my favorite), ball gown, short, long, etc. Maybe just nothing with a long train or veil since nautical themes are more light hearted and fun as opposed to serious and traditional.

The men can have fun in their attire with this theme though-check these guys out!Image

Ceremony decor can be simple to make nautical as well-add touches of the color and some rope and your good.ImageImage

Reception decor can look very sophisticated if using navy table cloths with simple centerpiece designs like thesenautical wedding 5nautical wedding 11nautical wedding 12

Love the rope on the bistro table!

And the cake-love all these ways of incorporating nautical theme into a classic cakenautical wedding 8nautical wedding 9nautical wedding 10

Nautical theme weddings are not just for destination weddings-but for anyone. Bring the ocean to the midwest!!


Children’s Book themed Baby Shower

Baby showers are one of the funnest events to plan and decorate for. You can go so many ways with them: classy, modern, simple, cutsie, and my favorite: themed!

I have noticed lately, many are choosing to incorporate books into the party gifts by asking guests to bring a book for the baby’s library instead of a card. Cute idea!

This got me thinking: Why not make an entire book-themed baby shower! Looked on the internet for inspiration and stumbled across some awesome and ADORABLE ideas!


See, baby showers can be different than the typical pastel colored decor and baby food eating, candy bar diaper picking, word scramble kind of party 🙂 Have some fun, and just remember to keep everything in the theme!
