Landon’s bedroom is a nautical theme. Many of his clothes are nautical themed. Why not make his first birthday party nautical themed too?! Here are some things I put together to celebrate my big man turning one with a nautical themed birthday party. You can apply these tricks to almost any theme. All you need to do is find creative ways to name food that fits your theme.

For example, I bought Kool-Aid thinking it was blue. I was going to label it “Ocean Water.” Well, it came out red and turned into “Red Sea Water.” Also, when it comes to displaying things, just put them into a theme shape – like I did with his cupcakes. Another example, I cut a pepper into an octopus (or crab depending on who you asked) and stuck it in the veggie dip.
Party planning tip: Don’t spend money on anything other than food and balloons. We all have computers and printers… use them! For designing anything and everything on paper, I recommend Canva. It’s what I used to design the invitation!
Remember those food tips above? Well, here are a few in action. (Another one not pictured: I labeled the meat and cheese tray “Shark Bait,” hehe.)
