Sailor party dessert table

Let’s set sail together and explore the seven seas… right after we stock up on all the beautiful sweets at this adorable Nautical Birthday Party by Stefanie of Anna and Blue Paperie! I’m loving the bright pops of fuchsia and yellow paired with navy & white stripes… the perfect combo for a sweet & girly sailor party.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS, to look out for:

  • White ruffled backdrop with a tiered cake to match (+ cute origami sailboat cake topper!)
  • Lifesaver mint & twine napkin rings
  • Anchor sugar cookies and sailboat lollipops + a simple & sweet donut tower!
  • Pink Lemonade with lemon slices in mason jars & striped blue straws

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Stefanie

Sailboat and anchors in the party’s color scheme were used throughout the party décor and printables (including the cupcake toppers, dessert labels and party favors).

The dessert table consisted of a tiered ruffled cake, cupcakes and cake balls from Sweet Treets Bakery, nautical themed cookies from Sweet Goosie Girl and sailboat lollipops from Vintage Confections that matched the party’s theme perfectly. The centerpiece for the table was a cake topped with a matching sail boat made from paper.  I made a layered jello dessert and tied wooden hand stamped spoons with matching twine from InTheClear. I created a tower of donuts glazed with white icing that resembled lifesavers. To tie the look all together, I used one of my daughter’s ruffled curtain panels from Pottery Barn Kids as the backdrop for the dessert table.

The birthday girls wore adorable custom tanks adorned with bows, a heart and anchor that were hand stamped with their names created by Oh Fiddlesticks and matching bow hair bands made by Sweet and Sassy Boutique.
