Ahoy, Baby!

I recently had the pleasure of throwing a nautical-themed baby (boy) shower for my best friend and college roommate, Meghan. Knowing Meghan the way I do, I knew the paper goods and other decor would need to be traditional, preppy and happy … and they were!

The whole shower was a refreshing take on the traditional nautical look … a crisp palette of blue and yellow was set off by touches of twine and playful life-preservers. Everything was perfect! I hope this inspires you!

What is the most unique baby shower theme you’ve seen?

To order this nautical invitation and it’s coordinating items, please contact us! We would love to design for you.

Nautical Baby Shower Invitation with tag and pocket envelope by Memento Designs

The invitation set the tone. A monogrammed tag popped next to a decorative, scalloped tag, which mimicked the scalloped-edge pocket envelope. The final touch — a perfect bow in twine. This was so fun to design for Meghan!

The guests sipped bright yellow mimosas with blue-and-white-striped cocktail napkins. The house was covered in soft, blue hydrangeas and yellow roses.

Carrying the life-preserver imagery through to the buffet, the table cards featured a delicate anchor on a yellow-and-white-striped background.

Local cookie designer Anna Dean handcrafted these beauties with artist-like precision. How precious are these?

Rainbow fruit kabobs and anchor petit fours from Dallas’ best-kept secret, Casa Linda Bakery, made the perfect sugary pair.

A clothesline of nautical-themed jammies and onesies greeted our mommy-to-be as she entered the great room.

And, of course, the water bottles had to match!


Mommy-to-be, Meghan, trying to wrap her head around all the diapering she’ll be doing. Ha!
