Nautical and Patriotic Summer Parties

It's been awhile since my last post. Please forgive me! The good news is, I have been busy as a bee crafting parties for many kids all over America. April was my highest month in sales and revenue since I started 2 years ago so I spent all the month of May handcrafting parties back to back. I am stoked! What started as a hobby, has become this mini-industry and I have become a mompreneur. What a great job I have, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Ok, so April was my best month {yet} and what actually inspired me to write this post is the popularity of my Nautical Birthday party decorations. I sold over 60 nautical party items over the last 2 months {wow! that's an average of 2 a day!}. I must say it: they are beautiful! and with summer just around the corner, I know many mommies will look for them in order to celebrate birthdays with our beautiful red, white and blue.

These are all the products that I have currently available. And, if you don't see what you're looking for, I will make it happen! ;)


I first made this party hat without any instructions from my customer. She just said: 'I trust you!' . I love that!. It was put up for sale the next day and it has been a big seller. Some customers ask me to add a number 1 to it for baby's first birthday and it can be done at no extra charge.

It is made out of cardstock with fabric ribbon trim and ties, die cut anchor embellishment and soft pom-pom at the top. It measures 7" tall and 4.25" wide. It "sits" on top of baby's head. {I owe you a tutorial on how to make these easy party hats}. Will be back to this post with an update.

This lovely nautical bunting banner is handcrafted from start to finish in my own studio. The nautical patterned cardstock is printed at my own studio and each pennant is hand cut {yes, no Cricut here at all}.It features a sailboat, a whale, a boat wheel and an anchor. 

It is strung with red grosgrain ribbon and the nautical images {also printed at my studio and hand punched) can be switched or changed. Some customers design their parties based only on whales and sailboats so they just have to tell me and I will use the design they want and leave out the ones they don't.

' I am One ' banners are a must for babies' first birthdays! Usually hung on the front of the baby's highchair for that 'picture perfect moment', they are affordable and make a beautiful keepsake. Our nautical highchair banner is a mini version of the Nautical Happy Birthday banner described above, hand cut and hand strung with red grosgrain red ribbon.

Bottle wrappers are trending. I describe them as an inexpensive way to decorate your party table. One dozen of bottles wrapped in a beautiful and personalized nautical wrapper, makes a great impression. The labels are printed and cut to size. You don't have to do a thing, just peel and stick. Best of all, they are weatherproof. They can be put in the fridge or they can be submerged in a cooler and the ink won't run. 

I believe this is a must have item for summer parties, backyard gatherings and for a 4th of July party...why not? Just ask! I will personalize it for you. I have also personalized these labels {and all other nautical party decoration items} for Ahoy! It's a Boy! baby showers.


Favor tags are the number one seller in my shop followed by cupcake toppers. All of our favor tags designs have been a great success, especially because of our signature die cut shape in the center. The nautical favor tags feature a beautiful tiny die cut red sailboat. What's not to love?

All our favor tags come pre-strung whether with satin ribbon or - in this case - with 100% cotton baking twine in natural color.

These nautical cupcake toppers were the starting point to design this Nautical party package. Made out of high quality cardstock with food grade lollipop sticks. They feature a sailboat, an anchor, a whale and can be customized with the child's name, age and initial.
