Nautical Party Theme - Nautical Party Supplies & Decorations!
Plan your Nautical Theme Party ... "Setting Sail for Another Great Decade!", "Anchors Aweigh!", or "Bon Voyage" with the Nautical theme party ideas, decorations and supplies listed here.
The invitations you decide to send out for a party always set the
tone for the nautical theme.
Send out simple preprinted party invitations - only add some tiny shells and a pinch or two of sand to the envelope.
For a children's Nautical Themed Birthday party - have the birthday child draw (or cut out) a boat (either a printed or colored picture), or create one out of cardboard. Add the party details and mail the invitations.
The color scheme that works the best with this theme is blue, red,
and white, with touches of yellow. A combination of only two of these colors
would work as well, so pick what works best for you.
The Nautical Flags Arch 8' tall cardboard arch has nautical flags that light up!
Decorate your door with the
Life Preserver Arch for a fun way to
get the party started. This can also be used as a fun cruise style backdrop
for some souvenir picture taking!
Cover your tables with Blue Table Covers and add Blue Table
Skirts. You may use either fine white china for an elegant look, or try Red
Plastic Tableware for a real nautical effect.
Place a Plastic Life Preserver at the center of your table. For the center of the ring, spray paint some tree branches white and hang fish net and shells from them. Use a Styrofoam base to support them and keep them upright.
Use some beautiful coral, air slants and sprinkles of sand for a centerpiece.
Play some Caribbean type music, or maybe a little Jimmy Buffet. Don't forget about the theme song to the infamous Love Boat for fun.
Need a quiet activity while guests arrive at a child's or teen party, or something to keep them entertained while waiting for their rides? Try a Nautical Word Search Puzzle!
If you finish your games and presents early and need to keep the kids
entertained (or works great if small kids come to your adult party), try our
Nautical Coloring Pages! 1,
Have a trivia contest based on the Birthday guest of honor. Prepare sheets
with 25-30 facts about him/her. Some true and some false. Have a contest to
see who can get the most correct. This is fun to get to learn more about
someone-even if you thought you knew it all!
If there will be children at the party - a great craft/activity for them to fill the time and match the theme is Sand Art.
Use some wonderful Anchors Around the World Votive -they make wonderful party favors!
Neon Sailor hats are fun for all ages! And for the kids, try Sea Creature Beads
Fill a blue personalized fluted glass with sand and a couple beautiful shells!
Give out Captain's Hats or Gob Hats to all your guests as soon as they arrive at your door, with a Captain's hat for the Guest of Honor.
The most logical fare for a Nautical/Cruise Night gala would be seafood of any type. Here are a couple of suggestions - some could be used as appetizers, while others are more of a main entrée option.
Seafood stir fry
A large Popeye's spinach pie!
Serve punch out of a large punch bowl and add a floating toy sailboat on top.
If cake is the dessert of choice, a simple and sweet cake is as easy as this! Frost a double layer round cake with light beige frosting. Sprinkle big grain brown sugar over it - a striking resemblance to sand! You can then add some doll beach chairs and umbrellas, or just a few plastic seagulls to keep it simple.
