My sisters and I grew up watching Popeye The Sailorman so two years ago when it came time to plan my nephew's first birthday party, we immediately jumped at the idea of creating a party that was uniquely inspired by it. Most of our guests were adults so it was the perfect opportunity to do a theme that everyone would enjoy. Since I still haven't seen much on this theme, I decided to re-create the party theme for this fun party styled shoot. I used the classic royal blue, red denim blue and incorporated the use of yellow to make a fun and bright theme which I thought would be perfect for both a boy's birthday party or a boy baby shower. I absolutely loved working on the details of this party which included the cute "Spinach Juice" wrapped in rope bottles, the denim backdrop, the mini acrylic containers for the peppermints puffs and the metal lanterns which held in the "Spinach Can" Cake Pops. I also created a tablescape to match and used a fishnet as a table runner and lanterns as centerpieces and made some chair covers out of a stars patterned fabric and tied it with rope which gave a perfect sailor look. The desserts consisted of Spinach Cake, Sandwich Cake Bites, Spinach Can Cake Pops, Chocolate Covered Oreos. All delicious sweets by amazingly talented vendors.
