{Nautical 1st Bday Bash}

Hello again!
It's been a while since I've posted anything.  Hopefully I'll be able to share some of the parties we've styled since last July..

So first off I'd like to share this cute party we crated for my little nephew Gabriel who turned ONE last November.  My sister in law was set on a Nautical theme so we started planning this party as soon as I was done with my son's Golf Par-Tee.

As always, I found this awesome clip art from Little Prints Parties on that was perfect.  With that I created everything from the invitations, candy bar labels, banner and more!

The invitation was layered over red card stock and the little waves were layered also on top so that it had some dimension.

The sweets table was full of delicious candy including home made chocolate dipped marshmallows and strawberries, rock candy, lollipops, gumballs and, of course, gummy sharks and Swedish fish!  Here are some close up photos from the candy and candy labels.

For the cake we ordered a basic white layered cake and we put on the decorations created by my creative cousin.

Party favors included squirt toys, fish shaped bendy straws, coloring pages, crayons, and lots of candy, all inside these cute canvas totes from Oriental Trading.

And to complete the look, my brother in law used the clip art to create these cute shapes from foam to place around the yard.  

What a great day! :)
