Sailing Theme for a Little Boy Birthday

sailing party theme :: fishing rods of goldfish crackers and saltwater taffy filled boats

Mary wrote to me about the cute sailing theme party that she did for the birthday of her toddler son. With several simple craft projects, she was able to design everything from scratch. She did not stop with the room decor, her food packaging plays a part of her theme. Have a look at her little fishing rods of goldfish crackers and the saltwater taffy filled sailboats for the adults.

sailor outfits :: personalized hats and t-shirts

All the kids received a personalized sailor outfit that they wore during the party. Some kids further decorated their sailor hat with stickers. Dressing up the kids make the photo booth session more memorable.

sailing party pennants

Besides hanging a fabric and felt pennant under the porch (or inside her home), she installed cut paper sailboats under the sun umbrella.

sailboats on the sea cupcakes

A fun and inexpensive idea was the paper waves that Mary attached to the kitchen counter. You could use that idea on a buffet table. The waves complement her sailboats on the sea cupcakes.

Bravo Mary! You successfully created a beautiful sailing birthday theme.
