When planning a baby shower, a theme always makes everything a bit more fun. Nautical theme is a perfect theme for both baby girl and a boy it can be so much fun to plan. The theme is also so popular that finding decorations and supplies are very easy!
The looks on everyone’s faces when they see it all come together can be so satisfying. Besides, with a nautical theme, anything water-related goes, so you have plenty of options at your disposal.
Nautical Baby Shower Invites
When it comes to invitations there are plenty of choices. You can have the anchors or life preserver, under the water themes, even sailboats. You can look through the choices and inspirations and pick the ones that go best with everything else you have planned and which nautical aspect you are focusing on. Use navy blue, white, and red colors to give a nautical feel.
Nautical Baby Shower Decorations
The easiest way to ensure you have the theme set would be to stick to anything blue, white, and red color schemes. You can add some pink for a baby girl to the decors. Use ropes, anchors, and life preservers as part of your decorations. Hang a fishing net and fill it with shells and other beach-themed items. Use blue and white striped tablecloths, have nautical-colored balloons, and serve food on nautical-themed plates.
Little sailboats are easy enough to make yourself out of cardstock paper to use as cupcake toppers. You could also make origami sailboats and display on the dessert table. It’s might be a big challenge if you are not a crafty type but have a go as it will look amazing with so little cost! There are so many cute little things that go with this theme so you shouldn’t have any problem finding the right way to do it for your party.
Garland is essential to any party! This garland includes everything that your future sailor will need. The garland includes anchors, life rings, and ship wheels. The garland includes twelve inches of extra thread on each side which makes for easy hanging. You can use this piece to decorate a wall, food table, a diaper cake or as part of a photo backdrop.
Nautical Baby Shower Cake
When it comes to the cake, you can make the cake different shades of blue in wavy shapes with fondant boats on the sides if you want to go with boats. Also, you could have a blue cake with a string of colored flags all around the sides and have a boat right on top. You can pick a toy boat out and place it there if you want to save money. If you want it to be edible then you have to have them make it out of fondant and place it on top.
You could also go with a life preserver or anchor or both on the cake. You can do as many as you want and be as creative as you want. The cake is an important aspect so take your time and think about what the mommy-to-be would like best and what would look best with the theme for the rest of the decor.

Nautical Baby Shower Food
For food, you could bake sailboat cookies and have chips with a tiny toy boat in the dip for the chips. You could make your own cookies using a sailboat cookie cutter. The cutest things by far would be little clear cups filled with blue Jell-O. Once the jelly is set, you can put boats in some and fish candies in the others. It would be very adorable. If you wanted to you could put the candy in before it sets so that the fish are swimming in the Jell-O as well. You could even put out a bowl of lifesavers on the table as a little fun too.

Nautical Baby Shower Games
If you want a themed baby shower game, I would suggest a little blow up pool with floating ping pong balls. Whoever gets the most of the balls out of the pool using chopsticks within a set time wins the game. Adapting an existing game to your theme can be the best way to come up with theme games.
Play “Name That Nautical Tune,” where you play a snippet of a famous sea shanty or maritime song and have guests guess the name. Or, play “Pin the Anchor on the Ship,” where blindfolded guests take turns trying to pin an anchor onto a paper ship.
Make-a-Onesie station would be an option if you are looking for an activity that involves sitting around relaxed while you chat and sip on your favorite drink!
Printable games are also your other option. You may print them yourself if that works out to be a better option. It is certainly a faster option if you are running out of time! Search for ‘instant download’ printable. You can find plenty of Ahoy / Nautical themed baby shower games online.
