Click on the pictures to see if you can use these items to get that perfect nautical look as above! Or find a list of nautical items here.
Suggested color hues:
For Boys: navy and white, accented with either yellow, red, or light blue
For Girls: navy, pink and white
Fix the space by including different shades like deep blue and bright white together or try out other hues of blue/pink. Some great items you can implement for decorations include nettings, sailor man caps, ropes, paddles, seashells, anchors, a captain’s steering wheel, starfish, round life preservers, lighthouses and more.
Putting miniature sailboats or even messages in a bottle are also great suggestions which will complement the actual theme. Have each guest write a message to the parents (such as wishes or parenting tips) and put in the message bottle. You can locate this on a small table at the entrance; so instead of a sign in book you can have these messages.

Nautical Baby Shower Tableware
Complementing table cloth in white or navy with cups, plates, napkins. Here are some suggestions for boy and girl nautical theme baby shower supplies.
Nautical Baby Shower Centerpiece Ideas
A great idea for a centerpiece would be a tall light house decorated with the colors mentioned above and top it off with a tea light in a small tea light holder. You can also stack clay flower pots upside down (about three) to make a shape of a light house, paint them in white and blue and add the light on top. Surround this centerpiece with fresh flowers in a wreath form or sea shells and sand and you have yourself a beautiful nautical centerpiece
Other centerpiece ideas would be a mini sailboat or Captain’s Wheel diaper cake such as below;
Nautical Baby Shower Favors
LOVE, love these nautical baby shower stickers! Personalize them as you wish. You can use them anywhere, even as cupcake toppers! (just stick them on card stock and voila!)
I love these nautical theme favor boxes, you can put candies or maybe even a mini scented candles.
mini Chips Ahoy
For even more luxurious party favors, you possibly can give out crystal sailboats or any other crystal favors.
Nautical Baby Shower Food Ideas
Of course, you might serve up just about any sea food. Crab or tuna salad offered on biscuits are a great appetizer. A few other food suggestions are: Crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, seafood rolls.
For the buffet table, commonly the punch bowl is the focal point. Simply include some blue food drops, and maybe also put a few little floating plastic species of fish. My final tip would probably be to cut-out the food items (like sandwiches) into different nautical. You can use the cookie cutters above.
Nautical Baby Shower Cake Theme
And as for the cake, I like to have individual cupcakes for everyone with cute nautical cupcake picks and these nautical cupcake liners. But you can surely make one big fondant cake for everyone to enjoy!
