4th of July Basket

Happy July! The 4th of July is definitely one of my favorite holidays! Living so close to the water has been amazing, and we waste no time getting out there on the weekends! A sweet friend gifted me this perfect boat basket for a wedding shower gift and it has come in handy more than a few times. Thank you, Suzanne! I thought it would be essential for our 4th of July holiday and watching the fireworks by the pier.

Nautical Baby Boy Shower

Lately, baby showers are my favorite of projects! One friend asked me to make a banner for a nautical themed baby shower she was hosting and it got me looking for some creative inspiration. Although I am just a beginner with Adobe Illustrator, I absolutely love it! Teaching myself has been really fun, as well as really frustrating. I just added this fun, printable invitation to my Etsy Shop!

How cute? I love this theme way too much! A nautical baby shower is great because most baby showers have almost all adult guests. A helpful tip: keeping the theme baby & adult friendly really helps with the planning! I absolutely love kraft paper and it goes great with navy, red and white. Kraft paper is typically affordable as well.

The best part? Fun party details! I had a few items on hand (surprise, surprise!) to give you inspiration for this themed party.

The straw “flags” were beyond easy… just check out my last post on DIY Mini Party Flags! I used an anchor stamp from Paper Source to stamp on the kraft paper tags and a little of my beloved washi tape to spruce up the envelopes! This has me inspired for the 4th of July… I think I may just need to add a little sparkle:)

Happy Friday,
