Event Design: Nautical Themed First Birthday | Quinlan Community Center, Cupertino CA

All Aboard! We are very excited to announce that this Nautical Themed 1st Birthday has been featured on the Inspired By This blog! Lia and I had the pleasure of designing this party for an adorable little captain named Viraj. We had an amazing time working with his mom Deepti to understand her vision and help execute it. Thank you Deepti for allowing us to create something so adorable for your little guy.

As guests arrived they were greeted by a display of crates and fishing net that had a life ring that said “Welcome Aboard”. It was the perfect way to set the scene for the rest of the party.
The dining tables were covered in the perfect linen to tie in the theme. They were navy blue with a white rope pattern. The centerpieces were wooden boxes that we embellished with anchors and filled with red, white and blue flowers. Each guest had a utensil packet, which was made out of a red and white striped favor bag with twine wrapped around with an anchor. The favors were little jars filled with red, white, and blue m&ms with an anchor tag.

The kids had a special table of their own. They each had individual red pails that had fun goodies inside. They also got a sailor hat which we hung off the side of the kid’s chairs. The birthday boy got a special treatment on the back of his chair.

We also continued the theme through the drink table. We displayed glasses that had been embellished with anchor tags and displayed them on wooden crates to create a high and low effect. A bunting banner with different patterns hung across the front of the table.
The dessert table was a hit! The backdrop was a life ring with bunting banners hanging on the sides. We found this amazing wooden shelf to hold some of the desserts. My favorite dessert was the sailboat sugar cookies on a stick that we displayed propped up on wooden crates. The cake was also amazing and had all types of elements that fit with the nautical theme.
