The preppy and quite traditional look was achieved by keeping all the designs and decor elements very "clean", with the use of stripes and a lot of white to give it all a crisp, "Ralph Lauren" vibe! :)

 
The blue and white stripy backdrop, and white tissue paper poms (via Martha Stewart) helped to bring the design elements together - In the absence of Ralph Lauren, a duvet cover or similar can be used (like in this case)! ;)
 
You all know how much I loooove handmade, and getting stuck into every aspect of my shoots!! So, the two-tier sponge cake covered with white sugar fondant, embellished with some of the printable cut outs from the Nautical Collectionwas a creation of mine. (I think cakes are taking over and slowly becoming a new "part trend" lately!)
 
First time lucky, did you say?!! Too right!! I have to point out that I purchased ready-rolled sugar paste fondant (online), because there's no way I could risk attempting to make it from scratch again.... Maybe next time I'll be braver! ;) 
 
Anywho, I also used ready rolled fondant in red, white and blue to create the sailboat fondant cupcake toppers (tutorial coming soon). The other cupcake were embellished with the printable cupcake toppers in the shape of sailboats and other nautical icons!
 
The little sail boats that served as candy dishes are one of my faves additions to the desserts table!! They were such fun to make (and play with in the bath tub afterwards...) - I also owe you a tutorial on that one!

 

Fabulous decorated cookies by Whatever Whimsy, yummy salt water taffy and caramel balls helped to complete this preppy, Nautical desserts table!

Sooooooo, now that you've seen both our Nautical Party styled shoots, I'd LOVE to hear which style rocks YOUR boat?!! Rustic or Preppy?  :)
