Nautical-themed Party Inspiration: Decor to Drinks

This theme is so popular, it’s a breeze finding party elements (which you can also choose to DIY!) and menu ideas to get this baby shower shipshape.

Nautical-themed Party Inspiration Board from Decor to Drinks

“Ahoy, mateys!” Get guests on board by sending out nautical baby shower invitations (1 – via Basic Invite) at least 3 weeks ahead.

Then, for some DIY ideas, consider decorating a little sailor cake (2 – from Bellenza) yourself with an anchor cutout, bands of ribbon, and colored candies; and setting the party tables (3 – from Bellenza) with themed accents like seashell place card holders (exclusive from the Bellenza SHOP), a ship with lighthouse centerpiece (4 – styled by Bellenza), and a whimsical nautical diaper centerpiece (5 – via Amazon).

And remember, you can use party food and drinks as part of the decor, too! Examples would be cake pops (6 – from Oh Sugar Event Planning) frosted with anchors and a bowl of blue piña colada party punch (7 – from Wishes and Dishes).

Party Menu with a Nautical Americana Spin

With pops of red added to the typical blue and white of a nautical theme, you have a way to give your baby shower menu an Americana flair. See the recipes we found!

Baby on Board Nautical Baby Shower Food

As a nod to the nautical theme, prepare Phyllo Flag Triangles with Spinach (2 – from Party Swizzle). These are phyllo dough turnovers filled with spinach and feta cheese, and made into mini “boats” with flags!

Then, have sentimental favorites like Homemade Corn Dogs (1 – from Life in the Lofthouse), Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Butter (3 – from Serious Eats), Mini Apple Pies (4 – from Live Well Bake Often), and Berries and Cream Dessert Triangles (5 – from Pillsbury).
