So his Nursery is nautical so it was only fitting that his first birthday would be too. I found a ton of great inspirational ideas via pinterest. So I am here to show a few ideas we used and how it all turned out...
If you haven't guessed it I am a HUGE ETSY FAN!! My mom has a shop on Etsy too.. What an incredible marketplace to buy unique, custom, homemade items.. from all over the WORLD!
To start I had purchased his invites and a lot of his cutsie details on ETSY. Besides custom invites lets not forget about the custom envelope seals and address labels.. I'm just a huge sucker for the details.. I love them.. I'm sure no one else will even notice but I know!! And well now you do too ;)
The Nautical theme continued to the rest of his party where I hung a burlap sign off his high chair .. It made a great photo prop for his Thank you Cards later! ;)
Outside along with balloons I hung a burlap '1' sign off a old window frame by our door.
Burlap bags with Anchors hold some treats for the kids goody bags.
Nautical inspired dish wear.. The lifesavers was a cute Pinterest Idea! You can follow me on my Pinterest HERE.
Don't you just want to be 1 again ;)
So once the party was over I ordered his custom Thank you cards.. I also ordered the PDF file from Etsy. This time with writing on the front and a full picture of him on the back (Just incase you want to frame our little guy!) I love that I can just go to my local Staples store and within a few hours.. I had all his Thank you cards printed and ready to mail.
