Ahoy! It’s a Nautical Themed Baby Shower

Nautical Themed Baby Shower with FREE baby shower invitation printables! Perfect for a baby girl.

I’m not sure I could pick a favorite party to plan, but baby showers would definitely be at the top of my list. A sweet friend of mine is due in a few months with a baby girl so I wanted to host a little party for her. Lately I have been missing the ocean, and dreaming of sailboats, so I chose a nautical themed baby shower. A few sailboat cupcakes, a boat-shaped diaper cake,  nautical themed baby shower invitations, and some stripes pulled it all together.

The shower was set for 6:00pm in the evening so we prepared a few fruit & veggie trays, some pink bubblegum candies and some white sailboat cupcakes for dessert.

Nautical Themed Baby Shower Sailboat Cupcakes

To make the sail-boat cupcakes I just cut out little triangles of paper towels which I had and skewered them with a stick. Not only were they easy to make, but paper towels are very inexpensive too!

For decor I used some burlap, a navy & white striped scarf, and some tissue paper pom-poms in pink and white.

I also created a nautical diaper cake in the shape of a boat.

Sailboat Diaper Cake for a Nautical Baby Shower

My favorite part is the little white diaper flag on the back. This sailboat diaper cake served as a decoration and a gift to the new mom to be. She gets to tear it all apart and use the diapers on her baby.

The favors were boxes of saltwater taffy finished off with a strip of washi tape and stamped with a thank you.

I have to tell you, there is nothing more fun than getting to see a new mom having fun at a baby shower.

And I can’t wait for her new sweet baby to arrive…so I can try to hold her every chance I get.

Hope you enjoyed this nautical themed baby shower idea. I know that sometimes it can feel overwhelming to plan such a big event. You might wonder how long it will take to get it all made? Wondering if there is anything you can do to save time and money.  Hopefully the ideas here on this post and free nautical baby shower printable will save you some time. But for the money saving part I always try to save as much as I can on purchasing the materials. I went to the dollar store for the tissue paper, the mini cupcake sticks, twine and plates. But for the big stuff like the diapers (for the diaper cake) and paper towels I always start by searching for coupons.

For this project I went over to www.PickUptheValues.com to help me out.  They have the BEST coupons! They are all high-value coupons from the Kimberly-Clark brands. I found so many great coupons for the paper products that I use all the time.  Here are some of the brands of coupons you might find:

  • Huggies diapers & wipes
  • Scott paper towels and toilet paper
  • Kleenex brand facial tissue
  • Cottenelle toilet paper
  • Viva paper towels
  • U by Kotex tampons
  • Depends
  • Poise pads
  • and many more!

Kimberly-Clark wants to help parents “Pick Up the Values” by giving you access to what you need, when you need it all summer long!  All you have to do is sign up for an account really quick & then check in whenever you are headed to the store to see if there are any new printable coupons for those household products you need. Plus you can sign up for specific brands you use and they will alert you when a new coupon is available. Now that’s my kind of savings!
