Nautical parties are such a popular trend and they especially make a great baby shower theme. This whale themed baby shower is such a fun twist, and the darling details are sure to delight!
Gorgeous shades of navy, turquoise and aqua set the tone for festive preppy baby shower decorations, nautical themed props and the cutest whale-inspired baby shower cake you can imagine!
Carol Colon, of Partylicious Events, has done it again with her impeccable styling. Carol’s client picked the nautical theme for her baby shower since her baby boy’s nursery will include this decor style.
All of the sweet sea-inspired details were planned with this in mind.
Wanting to incorporate a cute baby whale to coordinate with the chosen color palette, Carol reached out to Basic Pixels by Pixels Paper and utilized their graphic design skills.
You’ll see cute signs and labels and other printable decor featuring this adorable ocean friend.
As a party guest, it is always nice to be welcomed by an inviting entrance. Guests at this shower were greeted by a lovely welcome table boasting nautical striped linens, beautiful flower arrangements and perfectly placed nautical decor.
I love the clever guestbook: guest fingerprints are stand-ins for water bubbles spouting out of the little whale’s blow hole. Adorable!
A cozy seating area was also set up and included plush carpet, vibrant throw pillows and even a huge stuffed puppy dog to bring in a little juvenile feel.
Baby showers are known as social events where guests love to eat yummy desserts and chat about motherhood with mom-to-be.
At this event, a beautiful dessert table was styled to provide plenty of sweet moments.
Covered in a turquoise tablecloth topped with navy and white striped linen, the dessert table gave rise to some mouth-watering, delicious looking desserts.
A smorgasbord of treats by Sugar Bliss by Mari filled the table beautifully. French macarons, chocolate truffles and Nutella tarts are some of my personal favorites!
And if they didn’t make you drool, check out the mini cheesecakes, macaroons and wonderfully decorated sugar cookies from Cookies by Suehery.
And those 3-D whale cookies? So fun! I love how they are each displayed on individual mini cake pedestals.
And let’s talk about that cake! Jovanna Valentin, a friend of Carol’s, made this wave covered masterpiece. I love the nautical and whale inspired details, all done in fondant.
Impressive! My favorite part is definitely the cute little whale on top.
So many sweet details–including printable toppers, washi tape embellishments on mini dessert spoons, ribbon accents, colorful petite blossom cups and a variety of lovely cake plates and platters–made this a classically gorgeous table.
Adding to the sweet setting, the backdrop for the dessert table included custom made nautical garlands and a layered “It’s a Boy!” banner framed by giant blue balloons and aqua tassels.
Guest seating was kept simple with pristine white tables topped with blue lanterns and lovely floral centerpieces.
What a whale of a baby shower!
