Nautical First Birthday
We had the privilege of working with Jenny Dixon from the blog, Crossing the Bugger Dixon Line on this nautical first birthday. We created a very bright and colorful tassel garland for the first birthday party of her nephew. It was a nautical theme with some delicious desserts, thoughtful decor and one very cute birthday boy. Here are Jenny’s words about the party and all the fun, fabulous and seafaring decor.
Party Inspiration: I was incredibly honored when Bird asked me to contribute to Issue 5 of Bird’s Party Magazine. Choosing a theme could not have been easier as my sister-in-law had already fall in love with Bird’s nautical collection for my nephew’s 1st birthday. I just adore this collection and knew we had a lot of beautiful bold patterns and colors to work with.
Colors: Red and shades of blue. I added accents of gold on the fondant toppers, cake plates, Mylar tassel garland and dessert sticks.
Desserts: The dessert table was filled with beautiful nautical inspired treats. Maria of Love and Sugar Kisses created the most unbelievable nautical rope (monkey’s first knots) cake pops out of fondant. She also created the sailboat topper for the smash cake. The beautiful captains wheel, sailboat, and anchor fondant cupcake toppers were made by Edible Details. Special nautical cookies were designed by Bambella Cookie Boutique. Each cookie was meticulously adorned with nautical waves, buntings, and stripes to match the details of the collection.
Favor Table: The favor table displayed sea glass candy, cookies, and chocolate covered Oreos for our guests to take home. Of course we had to showcase the birthday boy some more with a birthday photo banner and anchor shaped ribbon wreath.
