This adorable SAILOR GIRL NAUTICAL + NAVY BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Nellie Leis of nellie*design.

Some of the things that I like best about this girly sailor party (other than the fact that the guest of honor is named Navy — too perfect!) are:

  • The chipboard letters wrapped with washi tape and spelling out the birthday girl’s name
  • The sailor hat garland
  • The life saver candies tied to the tops of the mason jars along with anchor printable tags
  • and MORE!

Here’s what Nellie said about planning the party– “Coming up with this theme for our daughter, Navy’s, first birthday was easy! With a nautical name, it was only her destiny to have a fun Sailor Girl themed party! I am the owner and designer of nellie*design, and I create printable party invites & decorations, so I considered this a high priority job and had a blast creating a beautiful and special day to celebrate my baby girl!

To set the tone for the party, each guest received a simple, preppy invitation in the mail, inside of a 5×7 flat kraft paper bag. I wrapped a {printable} envelope address label around the outside of the kraft bag to personalize them, and secured the “envelope” closed with navy polka dot washi tape! The invites are double sided, with a fun navy polka dot pattern background.

At the party, the party favor table was a main focal point. Pink & navy tissue poms made a fun statement as the back drop, with a printable birthday banner. Each little sailor received their own personalized sailor hat and a box full of “life rings” {aka powdered donuts!}. The sailor hats were personalized with a printable name tag.

The Sweets Table was another highlight of the party, with pink frosted cupcakes, a polka dot cake, mini fruit pizzas and other fun treats. Printable party decor spruced up the table with food label tent cards, cupcake topper “sails”, large “sail” signage and party tags. A navy and white striped wooden boat hull was filled with take-home pretzel fish snacks and a large sail played as the backdrop for the table.

Some of my favorite food/drink items that coordinated with the theme, included a watermelon “boat” and pink lemonade filled with blueberries! The drink station was a “printable party” dream… with everything labeled, from the water bottles, to juice boxes to flags on each navy striped straw. Mason jars were tied with a printable tag and a life saver candy.”
