A Mod Nautical Themed Birthday Party

For Peyton’s first birthday, Blair Britt Events created a fun mod nautical themed party in navy, pink and sea foam green, and it was all captured by Alice Hu Photography. The theme came to life with nautical details from fish nets and oars, to rope accents and starfish. The sea inspiration became interactive for the older kids with a nautical knot tying station, and additional fun was had with tug-o-war and a balloon toss. The little guests also enjoyed boxed lunches for them to grab and go, along with a fully stocked dessert table with treats from Sweet & Saucy Shop and to-go bags to take some goodies home. To quench their thirst, kids could grab a drink from a “sailboat” created with a large bucket and cloth sail. So cute!

One sweet detail we love is that guests wrote notes to Peyton to be placed in a time capsule for her to open at her 18th birthday. The time capsule will also include her birthday party invitation, a list of her favorite things and activities at one year, and notes from her parents and her sister. Love this idea!
