Soiree :: Nautical Navy & Yellow Baby Shower

Today I'm sharing the insanely gorgeous nautical themed shower that our friends and family threw us.  From the lovely party decor to the delicious dessert table, there were so many beautiful details.  I adored all the rustic nautical elements, with touches of blue glass, and  sea-worthy phrases.  Guests were encouraged to leave little notes to B (aka baby) on sand dollar shells, which I can't wait to frame in a shadow box for the nursery. 

The stunning cake was a combination of strawberry shortcake and red velvet, which happens to be mine and the Mister's favorites.

The desert table was completed with delicious cake pops, amazing shortbread anchor cookies, brownies, and lollipops.  The girls even put together a "cravings station" with all my favorites: SourPatch Kids, Jolly Ranchers, Twizzlers & Yan Yans!
The favors were Nutella stuffed, sea-salt, and brown butter chocolate chip cookies that I baked the night before.  We found those gorgeous navy stripped paper bags on Etsy, and tied everything together with red and white bakers twine and added a thank you label.
The signature drink featured cotton candy and champagne or sprite, with an added Swedish Fish for fun.

Games: They went around with a ball of yarn, that guests could guesstimate the size of my belly by cutting the yarn at their desired length.  We also played the "my water broke" game, that had mini babies frozen in ice cubes, whose ever baby floated up to the top first won.  And the last game guest played, involved guessing which baby (myself or the Mister) was responsible for various behaviors/mannerisms.
