Nautical Baby Boy Shower

Lately, baby showers are my favorite of projects! One friend asked me to make a banner for a nautical themed baby shower she was hosting and it got me looking for some creative inspiration. Although I am just a beginner with Adobe Illustrator, I absolutely love it! Teaching myself has been really fun, as well as really frustrating. I just added this fun, printable invitation to my Etsy Shop!


I love this theme way too much! A nautical baby shower is great because most baby showers have almost all adult guests. A helpful tip: keeping the theme baby & adult friendly really helps with the planning! I absolutely love kraft paper and it goes great with navy, red and white. Kraft paper is typically affordable as well.

The best part? Fun party details! I had a few items on hand (surprise, surprise!) to give you inspiration for this themed party.


The straw "flags" were beyond easy... just check out my last post on DIY Mini Party Flags! I used an anchor stamp from Paper Source to stamp on the kraft paper tags and a little of my beloved washi tape to spruce up the envelopes! This has me inspired for the 4th of July... I think I may just need to add a little sparkle:)

Happy Friday,


Bachelorette Party Details

I just got back from two amazing days with some of my closest friends. They are the type of friends that will say absolutely anything, whether it be inappropriate, heavy, or completely ridiculous, it will be said. We have way too much fun together and I am so thankful that my friend Liz has included all of us in her wedding.

The bachelorette party was in Nashville, TN! It was my first time there and I loved every bit of it! Except the weather, it was rainy and cold. But all nine of us were coming from out of town so the MOH had done a lot of extra planning to make sure we could still make Liz's lingerie shower feel special with small details!

Some of the girls flew in, and a few of us drove up from different parts of Alabama. Our car was completely packed with luggage, gifts, party decor and champagne. I brought the champagne glasses and drink dispenser so I had to make them extra special!


Oh what fun! We laughed so hard, we cried! With such great company, we didn't need any cute "stuff" to make this a party but the tags were inexpensive and easy to do. I love little details like this for parties and showers.
